This is something I have heard about many many times, however I have never tried it. After reading this thread it has definitely piqued my interest. It actually sounds like a lot of fun. I never really put a lot of thought into it until now. I will have to check it out. It will give me something to do to help keep me entertained while being out on the road and will also get me out of the truck and keep me active somewhat.

I've thought about coming up with some sort of TruckingTruth stuff to pass around the country. Like when you have it you take a selfie with it and say your location, then pass it on to someone else who does the same, etc, etc. Over time we'd see who has had it and where they've taken it. That would be pretty funny!

Brett, the Travel Bug registration is $5. Get sitting from the Trucking Truth Store, register it, announce it here, and see where it goes. (TBs are "public", anyone can pick them up & move them)

That's actually a great idea.

It's more like a secret treasure hunt. Unlike the Pokemon Go kids standing in traffic with their phones in front of their faces.

In populated areas you try and play it cool around the unaware but it's not easy especially when they're well-disguised. It helps to have another person or child or even a dog with you. Have had some pretty strange looks going solo. My favorites are the multi-part caches that send you on 'National Treasure' type hunts. Coordinates for one place, riddle at another etc.

Turtle 900 finds is amazing!! Are you surprised by the way people hide them or have you seen it all by now?

For muggles (non-cachers):

Part of the fun is in the finding, more fun in swapping swag and marking the register.

I've never done the geocaching thing, but I once stumbled across a cache quite by accident. I stopped outside a little town in Arkansas to get a closer look at a metal sculpture that was on display out in front of a small welding shop. It was an Indian warrior with his bow drawn back as if he were about to shoot an arrow at something. I was admiring the work of the artist, and as I was looking at it I discovered a cache tucked away in a small cavity of the sculpture. I pulled it out to see just what it was, and then I realized I had stumbled upon some hidden treasure that had been placed there for the geocache crowd to discover.

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Sorry, Danno, not free. You are free to exchange things, like your Lego Batman for the pictured teddy bear.

Also, I spy a Travel Bug behind the bear. (The snap link with a bar code attached.)
