  1. Great Scott it is expensive to ship internationally.


    Tell me about it! Still, it's worth it. I did try to mostly include things you can only get here in the UK (or pay lots on postage internationally) rather than shipping coals back to Newcastle. That was the decider for choosing the items going into my 2 missions, although there are a few 'personal' extra choices too, based on our interests or just 'because'.



    Those seaside things look way cool (or 'lush' as my daughter would say!)


    And that red..red...(erm, what is he exactly) does he have a name yet? He is so cute, where did you find him!


    His name is FLASH! :-) And I found him at an antique store. He's a Kodak mascot from the 1980's. My mission was a locality mission and I'm from the Rochester NY/Fingerlake's region.. the home of Kodak :-)

  2. I actually found geocaching because the judge at our last dog agility trial told me about it during our judges dinner. I went home, joined the website and started caching with my husband shortly after. So I'm completely new to geocaching but have found 36 caches so far. I have an addictive personality and love caching.. so much that this weekend we went to Target and used the last of our gift cards from our wedding to pick up a GPS unit for me since he uses his phone app.


    I've been involved in the geocoin forum for a month or so.. and I didn't even know that the other forums existed.. I found out about trackables and then started collecting Dog themed geocoins and love them!..


    I stumbled upon this section of the forum (since I was bored and my husband is out of town for 4 days) I'm not gonna lie, the geocoin section of the forum seems very beginner friendly.. and they reach out to new folks.. In fact in hindsight I introduced myself in their intro thread and I gave way more info... i felt way more comfortable....


    Just some thoughts.

    This little guy is waiting to be mailed out in another mission. He's a bit unsure of what is to come after listening all of our chatting about hamsters and rabbits being stuffed into boxes.. and what happens to them.. He's a bit nervous.... :blink:

  4. I do have a handful of handmade wooden nickles (pawprint center, caching name around the edge, date, and number of the coin) done in black wood paint on a rounded edge wooden nickle.


    I also have some great new NON TRACKABLE swag Good Dog Blessing coins that are small round silver coins with a bone cut out that can be attached to your dog's collar. Has "one's best friend" on the back and "Good Dog Blessing Ring" on the front.


    Would love to trade for some wooden nickles. I've found some great old ones at a local thrift store that aren't geocaching related but are really neat I've nabbed.

  5. My concern is, if he ate everything that I packed with him, and he can't get out and run around pretty soon, then he may just totally bloat up....can he get big enough to rupture the box?


    You don't think the potential hamster explosion has anything to do with WSR's mysterious disappearance, do you?


    LOL :lol: I'm envisioning a box with legs running around and then spontaneously exploding.. It's gonna be the next secret military weapon!

    If the "fuzzie" seeking list is updated, then I hope this mission will bring a smile when it arrives!


    Hmm I should find a place to put up a seeking list now that I have a sleeve of coins. Where's the best place to do so?

    Mine will be hopefully going out this weekend.. though tonight I'm gonna look for a couple of things now that I have the name of the person I'm sending to. I might change it a bit based on the person before I send it on it's way.

  8. Hello out there! Here are a couple of images of my personal coin. I have only given them away or traded them. I am interested in getting any of the year of the rabbit coins in exchange for one of my coins, if anyone is interested. They are antique gold/green or antique silver/blue, all are trackable. Please email me if you are interested. Thanks.





    Also LOVE this coin. Great job~!


    I also LOVE this coin. great job!


    I don't have what you are looking for but I do want to say that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE your coin!!!!


    THANK YOU VERY MUCH, PrashadFamily!


    I also love your coin (looks like my computer hicupped there. Sorry for the double blank posts!

  9. So my husband is going to the Steampunk World fair this weekend.. and is putting together some fun devices for this event..


    I love and I hate him right now because he left an antique pocket watch that he conviently wound before he went to bed and left on the table next to his couch..


    All I can hear is TICK TICK TICK..... :angry:
