You can track a travel bugs progress by first going to the travel bug page and then click on the View in Google Earth link on the top right hand side of the page. When I just tried it now though, the caches didn't come up, just the Google waypoints, but I thought they had when I tried it before.
Can't you get satelite internet access? Or is it prohibitively expensive? You've heard of satelites before, right? They are orbiting the earth a few miles up. Bouncing signals around the globe...some people even use these for a sport called geocaching. ;)
