      It could also be that person doesn't even have it on them when they travel. It could be set to visit caches when one is found.

      Sometimes people don't read instructions. Also, if instructions/goals are not ON the trackable itself, it's going to get grabbed and then 'uh-oh' too late regardless.
      You also might want to look at the cache sizes the holder is finding -- if the trackable don't fit, it don't sit. Or they forgot to move it from their suitcase to their pocket... all sorts of reasons.
      The person may have a trip in mind to France, and is just marking time, so you know the trackable is alive and kicking.
      Finally, once they are out of your hands, be grateful they're moving at all.
      I could go count the number of trackables of mine that have gone poof -- some before the first drop after an event -- but that would just depress you.
      There was a cache in Marin County for 'lost trackables' -- add your missing trackable's number to the list and drop it in. Sort of like a virtual event for awol trackables... cute concept!
      You could contact the holder -- sweetly, mind, because s/he IS going to some effort -- and ask what's up....

      Hey gang-

      I set a trackable coin last year with a stated mission of going to a cache location in a small village in France where I lived for three years. It sat around for a while in the Austin area, finally made it to Yuma (wrong direction, but it's still progress of a sort). Now a cacher is wandering all over California posting logs ( around 30 at last count) at numerous locations. This person actually took it from California to New York at one point (much closer to France than California), then took it back to California.

      This was the first trackable I set, so I'm wondering why this guy is doing this instead of leaving it somewhere, such as New York, that it stands a better chance of being picked up and traveling to the destination and back. Or am I not understanding something here? As I said, I'm a newby at trackables.
