  3. Their website pops up for me ok. Maybe try again? If you bought it through their site, I'm sure they will take care of it for you, they are very good.
  4. Sorry, I've had so much trouble with international shipping I just quit doing it. Maybe there's someone that I could send it to in the US that could then turn and send it to you?

  7. So I've decided that it's time to sell off my coin collection that's been gathering dust. I've enjoyed them for many years and now it's someone else's turn. I'm going to be listing weekly 3 or 4 at a time and will try to update here as I do. Most are unactivated, but if they're not I will transfer ownership. This week I've put up a: 2007 Hawaii Geohana 2007 Geocache America 2008 Two Tone Compass Rose http://www.ebay.com/itm/110807279773?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649#ht_500wt_950 http://www.ebay.com/itm/110807283313?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649#ht_500wt_950 http://www.ebay.com/itm/110807285436?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 http://www.ebay.com/itm/110807286202?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649#ht_500wt_950
  8. If it is an issue of the coin being improperly packaged for reasons of protection, then I get it. If it's just an issue of the cost, well then, if they clearly stated the shipping charges, then as a buyer one chooses to agree to them when the bid. A lot of people pad the shipping charge because ebay doesn't include it in their fees. So, IMO, it kinda depends on what you have issue with, the packaging or the fee, KWIM?
  9. Thanks for all the input! I think we will be headed to San Juan Island for a couple days and then Orcas Island for a couple. Lime Kiln State Park is on my short list as is Moran State Park on Orcas. I will def. be heading to the cache recommended here, that is my absolute favorite part of caching, the places I never would have seen otherwise. Any other great must do caches out there? Again, thanks for all the input, it helps so much!
  10. If you post a picture maybe someone can help you better as well.
  11. Reading Vargseld's post made me laugh. There were an awful lot of us (yes, more than just 3!) that spoke out for a very long time and finally realized that there was no point, they just kept coming. You start to realize that it may be the ugliest thing on earth, but as long as it sells they'll keep popping up, so really, why bother? Coin collecting turned into an obsession for many, it went way past a hobby, and for some became destructive to their lives, and with this came the vultures that were ready and willing to take advantage of that. I have to wonder though, maybe in time it'll fade out like any other fad and go back more to its roots? If it does, will someone drop me a line. In the meantime I just don't feel like weeding through all the cointests and what not.
  12. Colorful, well, that's one word for ya PGH.... I can think of a few others.
  13. Still here, just don't see much that I have anything to say about. Just no point.
  14. LOL at 007, deathmarch V2, you're funny. I took the last bunch and threw them off the pier! Sorry.... back to your regularly scheduled topic.
  15. As to the one coin in my collection that I have kept up on, yes, it's the compass rose. It was one of the original coins that I loved and to me navigation has everything to do with geocaching. I'm not a "collector" per se, but I love what these represent to me in relation to caching. I just haven't seen anything else that I can say the same thing about. I was excited about the earth cache coin too as we've done a lot of them lately, though was less than excited by the finished product. Oh well, can't have it all! Sorry, I know the question was directed to kealia, but I fall under the same situation.
  16. What's caching related is what applies to the masses if you're looking for a definition. We cache(d) with our goldies and shepherds (the inspiration behind those), we took group input and came up with the bloodhound on behalf of some long time cachers and the weiner dog was in honor of moun10bike (the dog head is actually artwork from his dog. A whole lot of people cache with their furry friends, that was the thought behind that. Once again though, these were pre the frenzy and the first ones weren't even trackable, just sig items for us dog/cacher teams. I understand what you're saying and nothing is going to be cache related to everyone all the time. I think if it is cache related to some people some of the time then there you go. Of course personals are completely on their own. I have a snow coin that is quite meaningful to the person who gave it to me, but caching in the snow is something I rarely do. It's still cache related even though it doesn't apply to me. Don't know if I'm making any sense at all. Edit to add-my solution.... go back to all non trackable, round, found in caches or traded. Ok, so I didn't say it was reasonable.....
  17. Nope, not trying to call you out at all. I've put up many many times. I can't think of a coin we've done that I'm not proud of. When there was no money to be made in it and people were using coins for sig items, it was always caching related, as they were generally personal coins and thus by nature connected. When they became a source of income, they went downhill for me, plain and simple. The tie in doesn't have to be an ammo can or a gps, but now everything and anything is made with a piece of metal and slapped with a tracking number. Personally, I'm seriously old school and still just like 'em round. Not sure what solutions you're looking for, it's morphed into something else because there was a large enough group to support that change. For those of us that don't like it, we just left it and enjoy the good ole' days as we saw them. For those that are buying now, this is their hay day.
  18. I saw the start of this thread and was curious, but then I kept reading. IMO it doesn't look like you're looking for solutions, just wanting to rant. Which, by the way is perfectly ok, but not in line with the title.
  19. For me, I take it one step further, for the purpose of geocaching only, not including the outside world of coins and fell that geoicoins are metal and are basically round. Trackability plays not part as to whether it's a geocoin or not for me. Where do all the others fit in? I don't know, but that's the line I drew....
  20. I think it's like any other business, it's buyer beware. Buy from the trusted coin companies and there is nothing to worry about. There are several that have been in business from the get go of coins and are completely trustworthy. As for the constant flux of new and re-invented ones, well, that's a risk only the buyer can decide if they want to take.
  21. I think if you already have one that is all u need. Leave it for someone else to enjoy.
  22. I'm not exactly sure what you're asking here? The person wants to be off your email list, and by law you have to take them off. What does this have to do with reservations or anything else?
  23. We drill and airplane cable/crimp a laminated goal tag that we print up to every coin we send out. We find a bit of everything, ones with nothing, some with a sheet in a baggie and some drilled.
  24. Most coins are "rare" in the sense that there was a limited run, however not all are popular, so rare is relative. I'm pretty sure this one was still for sale after the elections, telling me that they weren't big sellers. Don't know if that helps or not.
