The Launching of Official ITS Tactical Geocaching Travel Bugs

By Eric S.

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.

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!

Mission #1

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!

Mission #2

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.

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.
