TB Rescue Site!!!!

Postby KiwiGary » 27-02-2010 06:37

Hi,

I heard about this on the Geocaching podcast.

Its a site that makes it easier to get your TB's rescued and also help other cachers out with TB's that are stuck in caches.

Here is the site for more information.

http://www.tb-rescue.com/resc_whatisit.php5

You can sign up and get emails for Stuck TB's in your area, its looks like a great idea.

See ya...Gary

Great stuff, lets see if we get the whole of New Zealand covered.

I see Germany is now totally covered by willing cachers.

See ya...Gary

We've got a 100k circle from home covered now, but could easily check for bugs needing rescuing in other areas before we go on road trips too.
I wouldn't think it will be too difficult to get all of NZ accounted for.

You may have a race on your hands for those that appear in the Wairarapa! :D

I've also added a tb-rescue.com stat banner to my GC.com profile to help promote it.
I'd rather be geocaching!

I can confirm that the TB Rescue site really does work! :)

I logged our missing TB into it last week, and within a couple of days someone had checked the cache in the States that it was supposedly in, and sadly confirmed that the TB was missing. :( http://www.tb-rescue.com/resc_whatisit.php5 Go check it out

We should really try to get the whole of New Zealand covered with local cachers who are willing to check up on missing travellers in their areas.
Rotorua/Hamilton/Tauranga are not covered in the NI, and Nelson, Canterbury, North Otago in the South. Here is the map http://www.tb-rescue.com/resc_watch_all.php5

Hmm, must need updating!

I think I signed on with about an 80km radius from Tauranga when the site was first set up. I suppose I'd better go check the settings.

I'd be very surprised if some of the other more active cachers in Rotorua & Hamilton hadn't signed up.

Now we need a service that will knock on cachers' doors and ask them to put TBs and coins back into circulation. One of mine (http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=568754 ) has been with some guy in ACT since August 2008 and he doesn't respond to my emails. Could be fun to send some muscle his way :)

Well done :D I'm sure it's owner appreciated that. :) :)

We have had our second TB looked for and verified to be missing from the cache that it was supposedly in. Really annoyed :x about this one as it was in a race with some TB's of American blog pals. So that's our second of two TB's in the States gone missing. :(
