    So how long was this bit of flotsam’s journey?

    2 1/2 years, the funny thing is, I found it only maybe 500 to 600 meters from the location where it was released 2017 on the opposite shore, it must have been stuck somewhere, or it came back from a longer journey, or kept floating back and forth, who knows? I registered it with its registration id on the universities website as indicated on the back side and found out it hadn’t been registered before (some where registered twice or more times). I think more than a thousand were once released…
