  1. Just a short note to post that my daughter was a lucky recipient of a CCC coin. We got back to the hotel after GW7 Geocoinmadness/booting/towing/fire marshall event and she is going through all the pathtags she traded and says "Ooh what's this?" I knew immediately that it was a mystery coin! And so it was. Hubby and son got Lackeys from Shauna, daughter got a mystery coin, and me the actual coin collector...zip! :) Oh well they're happy I guess that's what counts!!! :anibad:

  2. Read the sign or pay the fine. You rolls the dice and takes yer chances. .

    I didn't ignore the sign, I just didn't see it -- the lights were off.



    I gotta agree with HC on this one, I didn't even know there was a sign, the lot & resturant was pich dark. The employees were most likley closing up to go home. I'm sure the tow company was operating within their legal bounds, but I'm also sure there were factors operating heavily in their favor (lack of lights, predatory tactics, etc.) :unsure:

    I'm sure if the sign<s?> were more noticable, then perhaps less people would park there. Of course this could cut into the tow companys profit :blink: . IMHO perhaps the tow truck driver could have given a break to the persons who realized they were in the wrong and returned to move their cars... But, again, I was one of the lucky ones...

  3. (NOT SCYOLI, I'm SCBrian, just to lazy to log the wife out. :unsure: )


    I got lucky at the event, and as I pulled in 2 KFC employees warned me and GTQ about not parking there because "They'll boot and tow you." (their words speaking about the towing company in 3rd person). My guess is the KFC is only minimally involved. I found the overflow parking for the Clarion and let the people inside know of the towing issue. It seems like within 5 minutes of me moving though the wrecker was there. :ph34r:

    I dont think the Clairon had any Idea what they'd be getting into with the owd involved. At one point appprently the fire marshal even paid a visit... :blink:

  4. I was kind of wondering the same...about the Earth Turtles. Does anyone have them ALL and if so could they take a pict of them and upload. I know I am missing a few and eventually would like to make it a complete bale.

    The climb

    Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus


    Song number one always gets me in a good mood and reminds me that any cache can be found or solved!

    Song number two is a recent one I did a hike in upper SC to a waterfall that had an earth cache at well one of us read the hike guidelines wrong and thought it said mild hike 1.9 mile. When in fact that was only straight line distance not over the 3 mountains and not the last 1500 feet that marked as strenous. I am not in shape the way I used to be and boy did that kick my hiney. But the whole time I'm grumping up and down that mountain all I can hear in my head is:


    I can almost see it

    That dream I am dreaming

    But there's a voice inside my head saying

    "You'll never reach it"

    Every step I'm taking

    Every move I make feels

    Lost with no direction

    My faith is shaking

    But I gotta keep trying

    Gotta keep my head held high

    There's always gonna be another mountain

    I'm always gonna wanna make it move

    Always gonna be a uphill battle

    Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

    Ain't about how fast I get there

    Ain't about what's waiting on the other side

    It's the climb


    So there are my two songs with a story. :P

  6. I'm so glad everyone likes the coins! they are a lot of work, and wow do I get stressed trying to get all the names in, but it's always worth it to see happy people! I LOVE happy people!


    I think I have 5 AE's left if anyone wants them drop me a line.


    They are great! I may not even give hubby his coin and keep them both. And speaking of happy people I have a happy 12 yr old because of you and your talented coinwork art. Be on the lookout for mail. :)

  7. Absolutely! My husband and I have a Crickey coin that sits upon our Steve Irwin doll.


    so how many yeses do we need to get it reminted?


    I'm shooting for 200--so far I have about 50 interested parties. Please send coin's website link below to eveyone you know so we can raise awareness about the Crikey coin and help wildlife warriors help wildlife and wild habitat--thanks;-)





  8. Cool contest.

    Here's my story. I had been friends with my now sister in law since 6th grade. Well in 10th she talked me into joining the Wrestling team at school as a matgirl/sports medicine. I in all my years of knowing my sister in law had never met her brother (now hubby). Well I he had wrestled and had graduated but still came to alot of matches. During one of our tournaments he walked up and asked if I wanted lunch, I just figured that he was being nice. And politely declined, Mom always siad dont take food from strangers. :lol: Anyways he wouldnt let up and finally said fine you wont eat then let me take you out. I was shocked not only was he older but bossy! But whatever I said yea and first date was actually out with his church group Christmas caroling at an elderly home. Well 2 years later we were engaged and 2 years after that married. And its now been 12 years this year and we have 2 great kids and we havent smothered the other one in our sleep. :D



    This is us at Niagra this past October when we went up for Geocoinfest.

  9. Not in my mailbox, but in one of my caches...anyone know about this coin?








    From what I remember these are squadron coins. Not sure how they are given out though, I know that the other branches of the military have coins so maybe this is a similar token. I'm right down the road from Chas AFB and always in the flight pattern for the C17's flying over head at 3 in the morning. :)

    Looks like we have mission failure....

    on 7.5 percents of missions.


    Ok my question is do we resend out a package or not? My mission person never got theirs and I feel horrible about it and want to send another package however I wouldnt be able to get something together that was as nice as the previous package for a couple of weeks. So what is the procedure? I havent email my person yet cause I was clinging on to hope that the package would still show up, whould I reveal myself and apologize or what? :ph34r:

  11. I recieved my mission a little while back and promised to post pictures but havent had the internet to do so. So here they are....Thank you SOOOOO much for my mission gift Sparticus06.

  15. Ooh Ooh Ooh! :sad:

I am SOOO happy thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!! I have been gifted a mystery coin from a friend who doesnt collect geocoins ( :D ) and my son found one but wont give it up ( ;) ) and I found one in a cache but gave it another cacher who didnt have one at all. But this is my 1st out right gifted from a mystery person mystery coin!!!! Again thank you so much you have made my week, my month, and heck maybe my year ( :D )!!!!!

  16. I feel like a sneaky detective -- trying to figure out what our recipients would like, and don't have. My kids are having a ball doing this. This was our big discussion at dinner last night!!!! I think we narrowed it down just a bit, and now comes the fun part of putting it all together!!!!




    The last mission I had my secret pal actually sent me a questionaire to get to know me a bit better. They of course did this through a sock puppet account but I thought it was the most thoughtful idea yet. :rolleyes: Just a thought to pass on.

  17. Do you know you spend 4%ish of your life waiting in lines....that stinks! I hate waiting 'cause I start to think about the million an done things I am supposed to be doing besides waiting. Like I really cant wait right now until Friday, cause Im tired and didnt sleep enough over the weekend. But then again I didnt get anything accomplished this weekend either, go figure.
