  1. I would like to hear about the distances people go to get to a certain cache/coin. Especially if they know a certain coin is in a cache that is a pain to get to (think a 5/5 cache). How far would you go for the coin you *REALLY* want?

  2. I did a search, and didn't find any answers to this.


    What is the best way to ship coins? Especially if going "across the pond" so to speak. I have received various coins from various places, and they all seem to be a little different. I am wondering if there is an accepted "Good" or "Best" way to ship them. Any advice would be appreciated as I've never really shipped anything other than a letter before.... ;)

  3. Well, my mailbox was a bit more full than I thought this weekend...


    Team ECS Thank you so much, a wonderful personal coin!!

    Thank you all again, the generosity of the members here is amazing. I can't wait to send some coins out to some folk that have been extremely generous to me, and possibly start my own cointest in the future :)

  4. What an awesome idea!!!


    *makes sure I have access to the address list* :D


    Oh man, I remember pegging my pants in.... what, middle school? Those were the days... *sigh*

  5. Over the weekend (I was gone) I received one of Sarah's beautiful feathers (Thank you so much, it's wonderful), and a Geocoin dot net member coin. I've been told there's a package at my house today also, but, I haven't had a chance to see what it is yet. The excitement is nearly killing me.

  6. I'm still new, so, my DNF stories aren't that great... Yet...


    However, I have a DNF from last week that was pretty... um... scary...


    I was looking for a cache in Ionia here in Michigan, off a dog run. The log stated to wear orange during hunting season, but, that ended a while ago, so, I thought nothing of it. I pulled up, and saw 2 guys get out with their beagles wearing allot of orange. I didn't think much of it and went about my hunt. I got close to the cache (10 ft according to my GPS) and started to look around for it. About 5 minutes into my search, I hear a HUGE bang a short ways to my left. I was a little startled, but, just thought it was a car backfiring. It wasn't till about the third bang that I realized what was going on.


    The two gentleman were training their hunting dogs... Including using shotguns so the dogs got used to the noise. Needless to say, I nearly crapped myself and high tailed it out of there. No cache for me, but, I lived, so, it wasn't all bad :P


    Yeah, my story isn't that good lol

  7. I've not had the pleasure of speaking with Tsun, however, from what I have read, she is a very nice person. She is very well liked by the members of the forum, and seems to have a Nutella obsession :D


    She also has a very cool profile, that is very well written, and meaningful. It's nice to meet you Tsun :P

  8. Because I'm new, and probably have fewer coins than anyone that posts before or after me. :P


    I'll be honest though, I don't feel I *deserve* a free coin, I would *appreciate* a free coin. In fact, there have been a couple very kind people that have sent me a coin. I was so excited when I opened the package and saw it. The generosity of the people here simply amazes me.


    I am not however, below begging. So, I present myself to you on my humble knees, begging for the coin. If win, I will be so very appreciative, and will definitely pay it forward once I have some spare coins.


    And, as a pre-thanks, I give to you a beautiful photo that was taken by yours truly, you know, in case it helps my chances :D



  9. Today in my mail, I received a beautiful personal coin from TeamEccs21. Thank you SO much!!! It's my first personal coin, and is definitely going into my permanent collection. :(:D


    I also received 2 of the parkinsons coins. :D


    I was so geeked, I decide to find some Nutella, and well, I had to stop by Sam's club today anyways. Did you guys know they sell it in 5 gallon buckets?!?!?!?! :( This stuff had better be good... If not, I might have to start an auction for a partial 5 gallon bucket of Nutella :D

  10. Oh my gosh!

    I can't believe it!!! A visit from the Nutella Fairy...I DO believe! :):D:D:D

    Now to check out my neighbours' mailboxes while they are still at work :D




    A big thanks also to Dhenninger for the cool trades...Meg Ryan GW VI? There's gotta be a story there...


    Wait a dog-gone minute! Where do I log my complaint? There is something sooooooo wrong with this picture :D The only person in this geocoin forum that should be getting Nutella is me! dhen, you and I need to have a talk :D:)


    I don't think I've ever eaten Nutella? I'm not even sure I can get it around here but of course I've never been looking for it either? I may have to see if I can find it?




    I plan on getting some this weekend to try it. :D
