Post What to do with a hitch-hiker?
A while ago I came across a hitch-hiker (Ernie) that I picked up from a cache.

He has a tag that reads:
My name is Ernie. I like to travel around Australia and see the sights. I am not afraid of heights, but I am not too happy about water as it makes me cold and clammy. If you can fit me in, please give me a lift.

Now, I haven't done anything yet with this hitch-hiker as I have been trying to find out who owns it and ask whether they want an email address or some other 'logable' tag attached to him before I sent him on his way. To date I havn't been able to track it back to an owner.

Should I be caring about this or should I just shove him into the next cache I find and let him travel without anyone caring where he goes?

I last saw Ernie up here in 1 in 100.... nice to know he is still kicking around. My understanding is that hitch hikers were sort of like TB's without the tracking facility. Just drop him off in a cache and set him free.

We picked up the Dubbo Duck Hitchhiker, he had a letter inside him with a contact email address so we were able to notify the owners.

cheers Darren :)

Hi BeccaJ, I got your original email about that.
It turns out that the cache owner didn't own the hitch-hiker and doesn't know where he got it.
I'll just dump Ernie into another cache in the next week and away he will go.

And I got your response caughtatwork :lol:

Just added it to the discussion to see if other people had seen him round. He was the first hiker I've moved, so I would love to know what the little blighter has been up to. :D

You could always attach a TB tag to him and then he'd be easy to track ;)
