We’re stoked to be releasing two Travel Bugs into the Geocaching world. This is our first series of Travel Bugs and we hope you guys/gals will get involved with moving them through their missions.
If you’re not familiar with Geocaching or don’t know what travel bugs are please check out our Introduction to Geocaching article. Mike does a great job of giving you the basics about getting started. If you are a seasoned Geocacher then you know how much fun it can be to help travel bugs along their way.
Both Travel Bugs will be launched from the UDT/SEAL Museum in Ft Pierce Florida. We started a cache named In Memory Of Our Fallen (GC37M7X ), which is right outside the entrance to the Museum and also the inscription on the ITS Tactical brick at the UDT/SEAL Museum.
We have included some cool swag to start the cache off right and the photo above is of the actual container you’ll find. While we have a few ITS related items, we definitely don’t want this to come across as “commercial” in any way. There are very specific rules about not commercializing caches.
As seen in the photo we have included things for kids to trade and this really that is what Geocaching is all about. Getting out there with your family and spending time outside doing something fun. So hit the trails with your friends and family and enjoy Geocaching. If you come across one of our Travel Bugs make sure to let us know. We want to hear your story!
The first Travel Bug’s (TB48NJ4) mission is to get to the beach at Coronado in San Diego California. There is a cache named Double Bubble Trouble (GC1BR4C) which should provide views of the SEAL training area. It would be great to see some photos of the TB near the obstacle course!
This Travel Bug’s ( TB48NJ6 ) mission is to travel to the Virginia beach area. The cache is named Redwing (GCHTEZ) which is near Dam Neck road. While not near the beach this should be a cool spot to end this journey as there is a POW Memorial at the park. It would be great to get a photo of the TB at the memorial.
If you ever get a chance to visit the Museum make sure go. Let them know ITS Tactical sent you and ask where our memorial brick is located. They do an excellent job of showing the history of the Under Water Demolition Teams and current Navy SEALs.
The sacrifice and courage that these young men undertook in the early days of the UDTs and still to this day will make you proud to be an American. All that’s needed to see what our current SEALs are able to achieve, is to walk around the Maersk Alabama’s lifeboat. You can’t truly grasp the perfect shots these snipers took until you see it for yourself.

Awesome! I hope these travel to Canada. I'm an avid cached and would love to discover and log these trackables.
Congrats to "fuzbill" for being the FTF (first to find) our cache. He also has Travel Bug #1 and will start its journey to Cali.
I got started geocaching after reading about the iphone app for it here at ITS Tactical, I would love to move these bugs on. (I am only two hours from Coronado) so if they end up in my area I will be on the look out.
Sweet.. I love me some geocaching. Hardluck682 on geocaching.com if anyone wants to add me as a friend. maybe the TB will come through the midwest area, and ill be able to help it keep going on its way.
