The Hitchhiker has arrived in the United States, great! He appears to be somewhere in North Carolina, somewhere near the Shearon Harris reservoir. Unfortunately, nobody so far has sent any digital photographs, which is a bit of a shame. Here is the log entry:

"I found dotSphinx yesterday in the cache "rad, aka glow in the dark" ( GCJJ4P ) at the Summer Fun event (GCJG8X). I'll be moving dotSphinx on soon. Thanks!"
Florida, here I come!

The hiker has been picked up by Dekromme and is now preparing for its flight to the USA, great!

"Zoals reeds aangeboden , en afgesproken, Dotsphinx Hitchhiker opgehaald om de grote reis over de ocean te beginnen. Zullen hier voor een mooi plekje in florida voor zoeken."

The hiker is back where it started: it is at the Travellers on Holiday hotel again. I noticed that Dekromme was going to visit this cache before going on holiday to the USA, and mailed Team Aragorn to see if they could pick him up. So they did, thanks, Team Aragorn!

"DotSphinx wants to go to America. Its owner asked us to drop it in 'Travellers on Holiday' because a lift had already been arranged from there to Florida....

Team Aragorn came by and transported the hiker from Belgium to the Netherlands again.

Hitchhiker dotSphinx re-launched!
Posted on April 25th, 2004 by pennersr

Today I finally got to re-launch my Hitchhiker. Until today, I just could not find the time to set the hiker free again, after we returned it home from the Travellers on Holiday . We dropped him off at Eindhoven's Kwartet Noord-Oost . This cache is very frequently visited, so there is a very high probability that it will make its next move within one or two weeks.
