Just wanted to let you know that the Oliver K. Woodman Geobug is now in a travel bug hotel in Portland, Oregon! He has already traveled 2254.5 miles!!
A travel bug hotel is a geocache that is located near a highly traveled place–like an interstate. This one is located outside a hotel near the Portland airport. This allows lots of geobugs (travelbugs) to move in and out of the cache quickly and travel far. We’ll cross our fingers that this will happen for Oliver!
If you are following Oliver with your class, take a second to view his map on the wiki. You’ll even see a link where you can open it in google earth. Once in google earth, you can use the ruler tool to measure the distance he has traveled. You can also measure how far he has left to go!
You can also check out Oliver’s profile on the Geocaching website.
