Re: Travel bug

That's Bucky, a geocaching travel bug. About Bucky: "Bucky belongs to Mr. Bell's first period, fifth grade social studies class at Mitchell Elementary in Bryan, TX. We are studying American history. We would like to read about and see pictures of the places Bucky visits." I got Bucky from a geocache in Delaware, and have been taking and photographing him at numerous historical places in PA and NJ. Bucky has been to Valley Forge, Penn's Landing, Independence Hall, Betsey Ross House,etc. It seemed very appropriate to take him to the sites of the PA historical markers.
It's a unique way for the 5th graders to learn American history. I have tried to include additional info or web links in each of Bucky's visits. Here's more info about his travels: http://www.geocaching.com/track/deta...6-43d21abf5773

Sorry about the huge size of my images. I'll have to remember to reduce them next time.

I friend living in Yardley, Pa sent this to me............Thanks Bill

Although not an official state historical marker, it is historical, it's a
marker, and it has significance as being an important part of PA history as
well as national transportation history. The Lincoln Highway, stretching from Times Sq, NY to Lincoln Park in San Francisco, CA, was the first transcontinental highway in the country. When it was first opened in 1917, there was a red, white and blue mile post marker every mile along the way, all the way across the country... over 3,000 in all. Very few of them survive today.

The sign in the attached photo is located on the PA side at the base of the
Calhoun Street Bridge across the Delaware River at Trenton & Morrisville.
Thousands pass it each day, but very few people see it and even fewer are
aware of it's historical significance.

New ones for ya Skyclad



This isn't really a PA historical marker, but close enough!
coordinates are N 40-54.894 W078-03.634



Coordinates are N40-49.560 W078-01375



Coordinates are N40-48.363 W077-50.598



Ok, the suns going down, and it's time to head home to make some wings and drink a few beers!

EDIT:



A great evening for riding, hot wings, and cold beer. Life is good my fellow inmates!

Thanks, they were pretty tasty!

And 2 thumbs up to you for helping out with the travel bug history lesson. Those kids are probably anxious to check out his travels every day.
