  1. I Love It! Can't wait til I'm able to get one
  2. We are brand new to collecting geocoins and we are planning to attend the Geocoinfest probably in PA. I was wondering how I should go about dropping my coins into the event so they can be discovered? At the moment we are planning to attend if we can gain enough money to go through a yard sale we have planned the weekend before hand. Right now I only have 4 coins that I have activated and 2 I am willing to use as a trade? I know I can drop the activated coins into the event as something to show off at the event but is there a way to advertise the 2 that I am willing to trade without activating them (maybe put a notice in the log?) I have also began keeping a record of the coins I have activated and unactivated so that when someone wants the tracking # so they can log a seen it on one of my activated ones I can look at my sheet and give it to them really quickly without having to squint my eyes to read it on the coin. Is there anything else I need to do before going to the event? Thanks for any help
  3. I hope the Leprechaun brings some luck down here to Hampton Roads, Va we could use some:)
  4. Anyone know where I can get a new Virginia and West Virginia geocoin? Unactivated? Is their a company putting them out or was it an individual who had it made?
  5. I was just curious what the NUMBER 1 Coin is or would be in your collection? A coin that you would never give up?
  6. OMG!!! I can only hope to gain as many coins as I see in these pics!!! I just caught the goecoin bug and my mouth is wide open looking at these huge collections. I want them all, lol!!!
  7. How about a coal car with a ammo can cache sticking out of the coal in the car? Both my grandfather's were coal miners and I think that would be cool.
  8. Is there an Event in Virginia? We were going to go to either the PA or NC event but we would rather go to one here in Va if there is going to be one?
  9. I've been doing some research and have found about 40 coins I really like the look of and would love to have. Here are a few of the top choices: Stary Night-Vincent Van Gogh-very beautiful coin Any earth turtle Geocoin thief I love geocoins any compass rose the tick Tranquility-another really beautiful coin Virginia coin-since I'm in Virginia tadpole These are just a few, I'm sure I'll keep adding to the list. Truth be told, I'd love to have every geocoin ever made, lol. A girl can dream can't she

  11. Hmmmm there is something in the works that may help with one of your birthday wishes for your boyfriend. May not be in time for his birthday but send me an email.....maybe I can help grant a wish. Thanks so much, an email has been sent.
  12. Nice to "meet" you Nochipra ... I am also a w/c using cacher Hi nice to meet you too, I was beginning to think I was the only wheelchair cacher, lol. My boyfriend (who is not in a wheelchair) and I cache together but once in a while I like to try one on my own.
  13. Yippppeeee!!! We got our two Podcacher coins today one signed one not. I LOVE GEOCOINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
  14. I know what you mean, I just started collecting myself and I only have 4 coins (about to be 6 coins in my collection) but I am getting a real education too, gotta love this thread:) This was supposed to go with the SCYoli comment, I keep hitting the wrong reply button sorry?
  15. Yeah my boyfriend has been collecting all things penguin since before I met him 7 yrs ago. He is also into all things civil war too. He has a birthday in Oct and I would love to get him a series of either penguin coins or the civil war series coins. This was supposed to go with the pengofamily comment?
  16. Has anyone started a rubberband ball? I thought that might make a good tb? someone start it with say 50 rubber bands and make it into a ball and then each person who gets or sees it adda rubber band. Also one of those paper chain things would be neat except you would have to use some other type of material?
  17. I have neither gotten any ftf or hidden a cache yet but I was thinking one of those new Hallmark musical cards would be nice in a bigger cache with an appropriate song?
  18. I want you to know that I think what you are doing is really beautiful and romantic and I wish you the best. I am a wheelchair user as well ( was born with spina bifida) but I was wondering if your wife minds being carried to the summit without her wheelchair? If she has two chairs then one could be placed at the top of the summit and then she could be carried probably by just you or two people? If she does not have another chair then maybe one of those fold up chairs or some chair she would be comfortable in could be carried their prior to you two arriving? Just a thought.
  19. Do you take paypal and when are they expected to be ready? I would love to get one of each.
  20. We have had the Garmin nuvi 350 for about a couple of months now and we love it. You can put in the coordinates for the caches and we have not had any problems with it. I usually input the coordinates manually because we generally don't get too many new caches in the immediate area very often. When we decide to go cache we just look to see what the closest ones are and use the driving mode to get to the area and then change it to pedestrian mode for walking. It's great.
  21. I was wondering if anyone can pick up my Podcacher TB Migration by Nochipra travel bug notebook out of the Where Bugs Meet cache # GC11HKZ and take it to the PA Geocoinfest to have people sign it and move it along? It is part of a contest by the podcacher.com podcast and it needs to move towards San Diego, CA and get into the Podcacher Treasure Cache. If you sign your name in it, you can have a chance to win also. I would pick it up myself and take it to the NC Geocoinfest but I'm not going north anytime soon. Thanks
  22. I just started collecting geocoins and have two that I definetly want to keep and two that I would trade off if I found something I wanted but do I activate the coins that I would trade or not. I already activated the ones I want to keep because I never plan to give them up. If I were to activate the ones I would trade, is it easy to trade off ownership of the coin to someone else if I traded with them and should I trade for a coin that another person has activated but not sent into the wild?
  23. Yeah I did email the owner, as a matter of fact he is the one who placed Merle there but I have not heard anything. He posted on the travel bug page that he put it there but did not post it on the log of the cache. Based on the pictures from the previous posts he is in a beautiful place though but difficult to get to which may be the problem. I know he's happy but I would like him to see other places as well:)
  24. I have a travel bug that seems to be stuck in Croatia? His name is Merle the Squirrel even though he really is a beaver (but that is beside the point:). Anyway, he seems to have been stuck in the Komusareva Pecina cache for more than a year. I was just wondering if anyone is available to move him or at least check to see if he still there. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
