Notes: Sent the TB with Jamie to visit Madagascar

#911 Traditional Cache Madagascar's 1st Cache by Dayspring Madagascar - Dec. 20, 2007 by Jamie

Notes

[log] Well Marty was determined to get here before leaving Madagascar in the hands of his handler Jamie. With the help of a friend, we got to the location of the cache - even decided the hiding place, but simply could NOT get rid of the muggles. Since we were just planning on dropping and retrieving Marty and Jamie didn't have a handle to log with, we called it good enough. The surroundings were amazing; so glad we came. We will let Mom (Bearfr) log our visit after we get home from other adventures with Marty.
