  1. My mailman was pretty good to me today - 5 padded envelopes. The last envelope I opened I found a cute little Christmas stocking.

     

    Thank you Santa's Caching Clauses!

     

    Merry Christmas fellow cachers and geocoin enthusiasts (sounds better than addicts)!

     

    :rolleyes:

    Thank you so much Secret Santa - I'm pretty sure I know who you are...

     

    This was my first secret mission and definitely not my last. What fun to open the packages!! I'll post pictures soon.

     

    I didn't think I'd ever see an antique gold Not Another Micro Cammo coin. What a surprise!! And I love the Aerohound coin and Team Thorny coin too. The Geodogs really love their toys and treats too. Although Sammie has already chewed a hole and destroyed the squeaker from the Naughty toy.

     

    Thank you so much Secret Santa and Happy Holidays to all!

     

    :D

  3. I think what happens a lot is you first buy what you like, then you buy everything regardless of whether you like it or not. Or you love a certain coin and it comes in 30 different metals, you can't decide which ones to buy so you buy them all Finally, you get into trouble and put on a budget. Sigh!

     

    So, if you can pick out certain categories of coins that you like and stick with it, you'll be better off than most. I buy a bit of everything these days but really try to only buy what means something to me.....and then I try not to buy up every metal of that coin.

     

    I think it's fun to go through all the coins on cointracking.com or geocoincollection.com or ebay and just see what jumps out at you. Some of the really rare coins, you have to ask yourself, do I really like it or do I want it just because everyone wants it.

     

    I like to attend events and see the coins other people bring. I've purchased a few older coins and when I get them, I'm disappointed. Same with not buying coins, and when I see them in person, decide they're really nice. We attend a monthly breakfast event. Each month, more and more people bring coins for discovery, trade, or just to show others. We love to bring coins just so others can see and enjoy them.
