Who Says Penguins Can't Fly - TB Wolfgang Von Pitterpat Update


Who says that penguins can't fly. 

My daughter Geoness's geocaching travel bug Wolfgang Von Pitterpat (TB21K6H) has just put on 10,572.67 miles in one swoop. The flight went from Southern England, UK to Victoria, Australia. Which means this is the closest to Wolfgang's goal of actually visiting Antarctica that it has ever been.

The total miles under this pesky penguin's belt is now 21083.1 miles. That beats our party animal Pete the Parrot (TB21K5T) who now is in second with 15664.1 miles and is currently enjoying China.

It never ceases to amaze me how and where geocaching travel bugs can end up. With any luck Wolfgang will hook up with a military person who will take him to his goal into the frozen tundra of Antarctica.

Hey! I did that! I grabbed WVP from a cache in Oxford, England, and brought him 'down under'remembering Antarctica is about as far 'down under' as you can get. Hopefully he can get to NZ, to Christchurch Airport where there is a US Antarctic supply base...
