Ferret - Legal Weasel
Runner Ferret - Legal Weasel
It seemed appropriate that our first traveler would
be a ferret, since we use ferret pins as a signature item. And of
course, a ferret
with a mission might well be a ferret determined to make California
a safe place for ferrets to live. Since Geoferret's grandma lives
in California, this is especially important to Runner
Ferret - Legal Weasel. He wants desperately to help cousins
in need in California, so he's travelling to Sacramento, California,
to carry his plea to legalize pet ferrets to the capitol building.
Runner Ferret - Legal Weasel is just that! He's a ferret (toy, of
course), which is a legal pet animal in the city and state where
his family lives. In fact, in all states but California and Hawaii
ferrets are recognized as domestic pet animals.
It is the injustice to ferrets and their owners that
Runner Ferret wishes to lend a paw to ending, so he travels to Sacramento
to add his voice to those asking the California government to join
the rest of the country in recognizing ferrets as domestic pet animals.
Please help him along on his way if he passes near you! He needs
to hop caches to Sacramento, CA, documenting his trip through pictures
and avoiding airlines, for the most part. He carries a journal to
allow those who aid him to note his progress, tell tales of his
travels, and, if they choose, to add a note of support for California
ferrets. Upon arriving in Sacramento, Runner needs a ride to the
capitol building to have his picture taken on the steps (or even
in the governor's office)! Thus completing his political mission,
Runner will need to rest before starting the long trip home. He'll
be visiting a geocaching friend in southern California to rest and
be entertained before provisioning for his trip hopping caches back
to his family in Fort Worth, Texas. Pictures and journal notes shared
by those aiding him will document his travels.
