PHRED travel bug
One of the travel bugs before it was released to the wild.

At the 2010 Autodesk Oregon Regional FIRST Robotics Competition PHRED released ten travel bugs into the wild. A travel bug is a metal tag with a unique serial number. Travel bugs are often used in geocaching (www.geocaching.com). When someone is handed a travel bug or finds one in a geocache, they can go to the groundspeak web site (www.groundspeak.com) and enter the unique serial number of the bug.  This will allow the current holder of the bug to see where it has been.

PHRED released the travel bugs to encourage others to learn about FIRST Robotics and the team.  If you have a travel bug from PHRED, please log on to the groundspeak site and record your find.  Then, pass the bug to someone else.  We will try to post the progress of each travel bug as we hear about it.  If you are another FIRST team, send us pictures of your robot.
