GIS: CYFERnet Travel Bug World Adventure

Tour the globe via a Travel Bug, a metal tag that allows you to follow your "hitchhiker" or travel bug. Your hitchhiker can serve as a virtual you: make a club mascot and attach it to the Travel Bug for a more personalized experience. Hitchhikers are a staple of geocaching, the Global Positioning System (GPS)-based adventure game. In geocaching, place your hitchhiker into official geocaches anywhere in the world, register your Travel Bugs online, and track them as other geochachers move them from cache to cache in the real world.
