For the 2nd year in a row, Jeep is once again teaming up with to hide "Jeep Travel Bugs" in geocaches all over the lower 48 states.

What's Geocaching? It's an entertaining outdoor adventure where you use your GPS to search for hidden containers, called geocaches, that are hidden around the world by other participants in the activity.

What's a "Jeep Travel Bug"? This year, its a green die-cast Jeep Rescue Concept vehicle (see photo) with an official metal tag attached. Were enlisting geocachers nationwide to hide approximately 5,500 Jeep Travel Bugs in caches located in the lower 48 states. Find one and the adventure begins!

Once you either place or find one of the travel bugs, you log your find on the web site, and they you can track it's journey from geocache to geocache. In addition, there is an opportunity to win a 2007 Compass just for particpating!

I'd rather have the mini Rescue travel bug then the Jeep Compass.

I will take both... and I could either

A. take the Compass out in to the desert and drive it like crazy until it falls apart.


B. trade it in towards the cost of a 2007 Wrangler

Actually this is the third year they have done this. The first gave you a chance to win a Grand Cherokee, last year a Commander, and this year a Compass.
