Got TB1AXTE today in South Guildford, WA.
Will drop off later on, it's going to Khemisset, Morocco. No caches within 100 miles, but 10 total in Morocco, so hopefully someone is going that way!!

edit :
I'm a bit of a noob at this, hoping someone can help me.. I've left the TB in a cache, but I don't know how to log that it is in that cache if you know what I mean? I wrote that it was there in my log, but do I need to update somewhere else so the inventory of the cache shows a TB?

You need to go to the TB page http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=838008
click the "Found It? Log it!" link and "Grab" the TB, then draft a note for the cache you put it in, select the TB from the dropdown box at the bottom, and post!
The "Discovered" log type is for when you find a TB at a cache or event, but don't take it with you.

Also, put it on you Watchlist so that you get emails when it moves.
Unlike a TB which you own you will not get automatic emails.

Wow, by some freak occurrence, Townsville TB looks to be starting out in New Zealand. It shouldn't take long!

I think it has been removed which most likely suggests all have been accounted for.

Got mine today, postmark said 30th December so it's taken the long way to get here! It has Naraura India as it's destination! I can't find Naraura on the googlemaps (from the link on an Indian Cache) but I think the nearest cache is a virtual one in New Dehli anyway.

Great to see Geocaching doing it's bit for Diabetes worldwide :)
Having found a couple of these new dogtags it is apparent that they are slightly different to your normal run of the mill tags in that the person who asked for it doesn't own the travel bug :shock:
I can tell some may be dissapointed in their 'freebie' being owned by someone else. But the idea is to raise awareness of a nasty worldwide problem. As INDIA is probably the epicentre of diabetes at the moment that is where many bugs want to go. I think rather than fulfilling goals to actually get to specific places which may not even have a cache, the main aim of these bugs is to be moved anywhere and to leave the cacher who moved them a bit more interested in finding out more about the disease.
I doubt that many of these bugs will reach their intended destinations, but I doubt that is the prime concern
:D
