  1. Stil waiting for a coin from sheltiedogshowlover, but I consider it as lost

    in the mail.


    Oh no... I sent that June 27th... I sent out the 7 coins that were part of the actual trade on the same day after sitting on a picnic bench and fighting with packing tape out side of a taco bell....

  2. Very cool! I'm sorry I haven't been around recently to keep track of who has received and who hasn't received their packages... had to have surgery a recently.. Please post if you haven't received a package yet. Everyone seems to be entertained by the packages they have recieved.

  3. I wish I could have known Kathy.. but I love your dedication to her memory!


    Yesterday we went to a local ball game we won tickets to at an autism event and I paid it forward several times to the people sitting next to us. It was kind of funny because after the 3rd free thing I brought them back they laughed and asked what was coming next!


    Thanks for the thread Drneal.

    Packages waiting confirmation received: Uktim. :unsure:


    Packages from: ALL COINS RECEIVED!!! :D


    Thanks to everyone that traded with me and put my coins on their want list, this has been so much fun!!!




    I received my coins from UKTIM on August 3rd.

  5. I'm sorry that I might take a bit longer then planned to get my package out... I had to have surgery (unexpectatly) on Friday.. and I started a new job Monday...


    I really wanted to do some research on the "love" part of of this mission and I hope that the reciepent will be patient and appreciate the fact that I had a stupid surgery and the fact that I really want to make this mission special (through research..)

  6. :ph34r:

    So sweet! I was shocked when my husband recoginzed my geocoin collecting interest.. or new addiction if you want to call it that... ( we've been geocaching together for a while) and bought me an engraved 30th birthday coin. I love things like that!


    Congrats on being the 20,000th person to post in this thread!!


    This is the 20,000th reply!!


    Where's the geocoin to commemorate this feat!??? :laughing:


    Tell you what, I'll send sheltiedogshowlover a geocoin as a prize for reaching this momentous point in this thread! :)

  7. who else has gone to a scifi geek convention?






    Gaming conventions, Star Trek conventions, Comic conventions, Anime conventions, R/C Airplane events, and Renaissance Festivals, I've been there and done that. I believe I even went to a computer software swap meet once upon a time and bought a relatively cheap C++ compiler there. (Borland C++ 4.0, which was a little out of date at the time.)


    Edit: I'm so geeky/nerdy I remember what "Win32s" is.


    We've gone to several comic book conventions... and had our picture taken with star trek folks at a show on our honeymoon at the Kennedy Space Center.


  8. Why did you activate it at all. Personally i would have kept it as a momento of the FTF. Just because its a trackable doesn't mean it needs to be activated and needs to travel. At the very least you could use it as a millage tracker.


    Its activated so just keep it with you and have it visit every cache you go to to keep track of where you have been. I've done that with one of my coins. After getting it and activating the coin i went back through all my finds to log a not and have the coin visit the cache and date the visit for the day i found the cache originally. So now my mileage tracker is an accurate account of my caching journey since day one keeping things as close to the order if found them as i could. It was difficult to remember what order i found many caches since there are 3 to 5 cache finds in a day early on.


    In case your interested here is my mileage tracker. I like having the map showing all the criss crossing across the map i've done.



    As a new cacher they may not have known the options of activating it or not. It is a good suggestion to keep it and "dip" it into caches you find in the future as a milage tracker. My dog has a new "geodog" geocoin that we put on her collar when we go caching and to events. People discover her and I "dip" the coin into caches. It's pretty amusing. http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=1024706

  9. It's not uncommon for folks to keep something like you found (a first to find coin) as a momenteo.


    What you're speaking of is a "proxy" and there's much debate over it. Lots of people think it's so much better to be able to hold the coin in your hand, discover it, and send it on it's way.


    Some people think it's ok if you originally released the coin and it was then lost/stolen (so you then released a photo of it to keep it going) but Lots of people don't like the idea and If it's a coin you value I wouldn't release it and keep it.


    There are several ways to get an inexpensive coin (under $10) to send out on it's travels so you can track it.. or you can buy a travel tag to attach to something fun and follow it's travels. I love watching my TB's (travel bugs/ Geocoins) on their travels. I've passed some great ones on from other countries as well.
