Travel Bugs with history

I have a question. I have a couple history themed travel bugs, is it possible to log them into a Opencache?

They are registered with Geocaching and not sure if they can crossover to opencaches.

Re: Million dollar bill placed at Rockledge Historical- Geoc

Looks like the Million dollar bill got claimed.

The person claiming it had his picture taken and he looks pretty happy to have found it. Even though it is a replica. :-)

Re: Map not showing caches?

I have the same problem. But if I can't see them that is fine but can everybody else? Can somebody do a search on 32920 and see if my three show up?

Million dollar bill placed at Rockledge Historical- Geocache

Just Tweeted: "Placed a Million dollar bill at the Historical-Geocache at the Indian River Hotel in Rockledge." Hint here http://tinyurl.com/35n8wjn Of course it is not a real million dollar bill but it is a good replica. I am looking for ways to make geocaching more fun to the crowd interested in l...

Re: Welcome history-caching friends

Thanks, I visited it. Pretty impressive as you just made it active yesterday and you had 27 hits already. Interesting that there is a Johnny Reb buried up there too.

Re: New Virtual

I just wrote up my first historical virtual cache. It is for the Hermitage Hotel in downtown Nashville. While writing it up I noticed that it opened on Sept. 17, 1910. So I have set the cache to go active on Sept. 17, 2010. I couldn't find the time of the day the doors opened so I set it for 7am. S...

Re: History Caching Basics

I'm in the process of cross listing several of my caches here to get things rolling in Middle Tennessee. Several of mine are hidden to highlight area of historical significance and the cache page tells the story. Since these are all physical hides do they not qualify? Do all caches in this category...

What's in a name?

Everything really, when it comes to doing searches via google and search engines. I am wondering if historic-caching might be a better term as history-caching gets confused with the history of one's personal computer cache. Try it out via search engines and see what you think.
