  1. I was excited when we checked the mail today and there was a package inside with my name on it. I received your geocoin donations toward my trip today drneal. Thank you sooo much! <3
  2. Hi Elmasj, Dofferson, and drneal! I have messaged all of you on the geocaching site. Thank you sooo much for offering to help me with donations for my trip. I will post when I receive any packages. I just want everyone to know how much I appreciate your support! (((Hugs))) Megan
  3. Thank you Tom!!! I will send you a message through geocaching's site in a few minutes with my address. Our trip is totally girl-planned, and we haven't finalized all of our trip yet, but we will be spending a week at Our Chalet, which is an International Girl Scout Center just outside of Adelboden. It's probably the one you were talking about! We also plan to visit and hike around Zermatt, so that we can see the Matterhorn. There's really a lot to planning a big trip like this, but it's a fun experience!!!
  4. Thank you kini!!! I sent an email with my address through the geocaching site. If anyone else wants to help out, that seems like a good way to do it. You can just comment here and I can email you my address through the geocaching site. Thanks everyone!!! <3
  5. Hi Geocoin peeps! My name is Megan and I'm 12 and have been geocaching with my parents for several years, and we have over 750 finds! I am currently fundraising for a Girl Scout trip to Switzerland next year with Girl Scouts of Western Washington! I am hosting a raffle of caching-related items at a Halloween caching event at the end of October, and am hoping to get some donations of geocoins, trackables, or reelly anything geocaching related. If anyone can help I would reely appreciate it! I can't post my address here but if you pm me I can send my address that way. PS this is my dad's account, but I am posting on here with his permission. Thanks!!! <3 Megan aka Mippy Pepper
  6. Up a Tree! is now fixed and enabled. The cache was actually still there, though about 20 feet from GZ. It is now as it should be. Thanks for the clarification on which Saraha Pizza the dinner is at. I just assumed that it was the one right by our house, since I didn't know there was one in Mt. Vernon. That one isn't far from our house either though. I hope everyone stops by and checks us out. This should be a fun event!
  7. This event looks like a great time! A couple things: Our cache, Up a Tree! (GC2x26F) which was supposed to be on the route but is disabled, should be up and enabled again tomorrow. We will also be doing maintenance on all of our other caches tomorrow to ensure they all have logs with plenty of room. Second, our house has an animated Christmas display that will still be up and running on the day of the cache machine. It's in Burlington only a couple blocks from Sahara Pizza. It's at 206 Judy Ave, Burlington WA 98233. I invite everyone to stop by and watch. Here's a video of the display: And a video of our display being featured on KOMO 4 news last night:
  8. FTF should be like potstickers at a Chinese restaurant. In my family, if you're in the bathroom when the potstickers come out, you're not getting any!
  9. No one else was looking because you already got the FTF. If you handn't found it, it wouldn't have gone that many days without being found. I've noticed that many caches around here, the FTF happens within an hour, then the second to find often doesn't happen for days.
  10. A month or two ago a new "power trail" was published. This trail had about 30 new caches and was along a beautiful hike to a lake. We drove an hour to get there and started the hike. Someone had started the hike before us and gotten all the FTFs. We continued the hike and while we were hiking we got notifications that about 10 new caches were published along the trail that were past all of the other newly published caches. We completed the hike and got FTF on the 10 caches that were published while we were on our hike. So what you're suggesting is that we should have found the first cache and then either turned around and not completed our hike, or just walked by the other caches without finding them so someone else can get the FTFs? We should either make the hour drive and couple hour hike again or just never find the caches? I realize this isn't a typical situation, but why should caches have to leave and come back to any place just so you can be handed a FTF? It's a waste of time and money. If you want a FTF, buy a premium membership, set up text alerts and when one comes in, go find it. Not too hard. We've gotten 48 FTFs in two years and honestly, we pass on going after the majority of caches that are published in our area.
  11. Super cool AE! Can't wait to get it in the mail. You told us the name of the AE, but not how to pronounce it. Can you give us the name phonetically? Otherwise I just might have to call him George.
  12. I once found a coupon in a cache from a scenery photographer that was good for a free download of a high resolution image from his website that he sells. That was cool swag. A 20% off coupon would be considered trash and would be removed from my cache. Hide a cache and put a coupon for a free session for FTF, then you're talking!
  13. Well tell your son Kristjan he's a rock star! That really was a fun cointest. Very creative, and some great jokes. I'm excited because it's a pretty awesome coin! I will message you my address. TFTC(ointest)!
  14. My geocoin showed up yesterday! That was super fast. What a cool geocoin too! I got the CacheHawk coin, and it's one that I would have bought if I was around when it was being sold (if it was in fact sold), so that makes it even better. Great addition to my small but growing collection. Thanks for the fun cointest NoSnow!! Oh, I liked the CacheHawk so much that I wanted to ask if you have any of the CacheOwls to sell? My CacheHawk could use a bird friend.
  15. I agree that's what he meant. I would also be skeptical of the FTFer since it was their first (and only) find, and his Found It log doesn't sound like the log of someone who has never cached before. The FTF was last November, did you ever stop by and verify that the FTFer did indeed sign the log book?
  16. Mr. Smith was travelling through Europe. When he visited the Pope, he noticed a red phone on a small table in the corner of the office. After several minutes of conversation, Smith asked the Pope what the red phone was for. The Holy Father told him that it was a very special phone with a direct line to God. However, the Pope told Smith that he rarely used it because it cost $20,000 a minute from the Vatican. Without another thought, Smith accepted this explanation. Later, when Smith visited Ireland, he saw another red phone in the Archbishop's office. Being curious, Smith asked the Archbishop what it was for. The Archbishop told Smith it was a direct line to God, and he used it whenever he had a puzzling question or concern. Smith asked if the calls were quite expensive since the Pope had to pay $20,000 a minute when he used his red phone in the Vatican. "Oh no," replied the Archbishop, "In Ireland it's a local call."
  17. Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking place. Looking up to heaven he said, "Lord take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of me life and give up the drink." Miraculously, a parking place appeared. Paddy looked up again and said, "Never mind, I found one.”
  18. Wow, can't believe I won! The problem is, how am I going to be able to continue to complain that I never win anything??? Thanks for the fun cointest. I replied to your email. Excited on my first win!
  19. An American had been fishing in Ireland for two weeks without getting a bite. On the last day of his vacation he caught a small salmon. "Seemus," he said to his gillie as the fish was gaffed, "that salmon cost me five hundred dollars." "Well now sir," comforted Seemus, "aren't you the lucky man you didn't catch two!"
  20. An Irishman by the name of O'Malley proposed to his girl on St. Patrick's Day. He gave her a ring with a synthetic diamond. The excited young lass showed it to her father, a jeweler. He took one look at it and saw it wasn't real. The young lass on learning it wasn't real returned to her future husband. She protested vehemently about his cheapness. "It was in honor of St. Patrick's Day," he smiled. "I gave you a sham rock."
  21. How do you find the bookmarks associated with a cache?
  22. As usual great videos! The girls got a big kick out of your dingleberries, which I must remind you to keep well away from them. Too bad there's no actual video of the police encounter. It's good he let you off with a warning though. I also feel obligated to thank you for editing the language out of your videos. I like being able to share them with family and friends!
  23. Sorry. The caching rules require that you consume all alcohol you carry, other than medicinal, on your trek to the cache. The purpose of this is to raise the difficulty level for your return to the geovehicle. Let's turn this one star into a five! Funny, I've had just the opposite experience. After a few the hard ones seem easier to get to, or at least I'm more willing to go for them! On topic, my kids love finding money in caches. We never leave money, but they're quick to trade for any cash in the cache. In fact the most recent FTF they were chomping at the bit to go find because it has a dollar bill for the kids FTF.
  24. Don't you think if someone has a severe allergy to nuts they will just skip the caches that appear to be recycled nut containers? Should we also not put caches in the woods in case someone has a severe allergy to poison ivy?
  25. An old man in Dublin calls his son in New York right before Christmas and says, "Son, I 'm sorry, but I have to tell you that after 45 years of misery, your mother and I are busting up. " "Da, what are you talking about?" the son yells in disbelief. "We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the father says. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her." Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "No way they're leaving each other!" she shouts, "I'll take care of this." She calls Dublin immediately and screams at her father, "You are not splitting up. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up. The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Well then," he says, "they're coming home for Christmas and paying their own way!"
