  1. OK Chris, let me try this again. Symbol: The Chinese Good Luck Knot - means good luck. Symbol: A Swastica (Nivens Tablet, The Four Forces of Fate) Wind Symbol: The Five Good Fortunes Wealth, Health, Longevity, Love, and Virtue Symbol: A Horsehoe Symbol: Gibo Auja "We make our Fortunes..." Quote is from Benjamin Disraeli. "Fortune Favors The Bold" is from Virgil. Letters intersperced within the design spell out PROSPERITY You got it! We have a winner!! Niven's finding are still much debated, but the source I originally based the design on goes back to the story of the Tower of Babel and was later repeated in cultures all around the world and particularly in North and Central Americas. The swastica is said to depict the "the four winds of fate". It symbolicly and pictorially depicted both wind and direction of movement. Benjamin Disraeli of course was the former Prime Minister of Britain and I love that quote. It seemed very fitting to pull the two coins together The horse shoe I decided to tip on an angle because theories of luck seem to be split 50/50 on whether the points should be pointing up or down for luck Good job!!! Thanks for putting in the super-fast research and sorry I couldn't answer back sooner when I got a bit tied up this weekend I have your addy and I'll send along something fun soon Wow Yay I won the first round! Thanks so much, you know I REALLY wanted to. I love looking at your coins and finding the hidden surprises!
  2. Well thats odd... OK so my question is recently I have seen a Pantone set with 301 Metallic Colors. I'm wondering if any other designers, minters or anyone else happens to know if these colors are useable for coins? I was told about a dozen or so are for pathtags, but I don't know which ones as of right now. Has anyone used a Metallic color?
  3. I have searched and searched and searched and still have not found anything new
  4. The first one was round and had a stick mailbox on it. The second one was in the shape of a postage box (US)
  5. OK Chris, let me try this again. Symbol: The Chinese Good Luck Knot - means good luck. Symbol: A Swastica (Nivens Tablet, The Four Forces of Fate) Wind Symbol: The Five Good Fortunes Wealth, Health, Longevity, Love, and Virtue Symbol: A Horsehoe Symbol: Gibo Auja "We make our Fortunes..." Quote is from Benjamin Disraeli. "Fortune Favors The Bold" is from Virgil. Letters intersperced within the design spell out PROSPERITY But Niven wasn't a people, he was a person who discovered the tablets. The people he referred to were unsubstantiated (if I read it right) he called the people Mu, from the lost Island of Mu. I think what your getting at however is four elements? Earth Aire, Fire & Water. The swastica could resemble a windmill meaning wind, but from one translation I found it would be closer to ether, the element of space. I guess the horseshoe could be Earth. but so could the rune. I'm officially confused. I think each symbol could easily represent more than one element, if that's what your going for.
  6. Well, this is just a GUESS, but considering that Geowoodstock is "owned" and "founded" and "invented" by JoeGPS and he lives in the Nashville area, it would make sense. It's nice to see it go back home. After chatting with Billy today I am already psyched for this location. The entire town will be GW7. That's awesome. I'm excited and I haven't spoken with anyone on the phone
  7. Thanks for pointing that out! And I have a 2 and a half year old!

  9. OK how about the Four Forces of Fate? That's my translation from this:
  10. The Stone of Fate or the Tablet of fate. Was it not Nivens Tablet?
  11. The last one was the hardest for me to find, but then I came across this It looked runic to me when I looked at it first so I got out my own set of runes but they are just letters, next I tried runes for the number 7 then I finally saw this!It was a lot of fun searching though, I could probably name about 20 lucky symbols now!
  12. The Chinese Good Luck Knot - Seen at approximately 1 O'Clock A Swastica from Niven's tablet number 1231 at approximately 4 O'Clock The Five Good Fortunes at 6 O"Clock (These five good fortunes are: Wealth, Health, Longevity, Love, and Virtue.) A Horsehoe at 7:30 Gibo Auja (A Runic Symbol for Luck) at 11:00 Now if only I had a larger image to see some fo the finer details! Thanks for the fun Chris I love this coin, but then again, I LOVE every coin you make!!!
  13. No Worries, I still have you on my list!
  14. Your on this current draft!!! All other recent asked for names have been added to the list. 3 spots remain then I'll put names into a "waiting in the wings" group
  15. I don't know anything about the hotel, never stayed in one before, but I was able to reserve 20 rooms at the Scottish Inn for $45.23/night, additional info is on the new yahoo group! http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Geowoodstock7info/
  16. As far as the whole internet thing...it's nice if they have it, but we live if they don't. There's always another hotel or coffee shop nearby we can pull up next to if we need to use it that bad. We were inquiring about a chalet/cabin that sleeps 10 near Bell Buckle. We have since declined it because it had no internet and we need to stay on top of business correspondence during the week. If you are interested in getting a few people together to share a place in the country check out Liberty Gap Chalet. A few folk have been inquiring but I think it was still available yesterday. I wasn't able to get references from them either, which is unfortunate, but maybe a local cacher knows of the place and can endorse it or steer you clear. I was looking for Cabin rentals too, but didn't find too many within 30-45 minutes. If you know of others let me know!
  17. Happy Birthday Karma! I've only met her/you once at GW5, but I have heard lots of fun stories from Dave who says he adopted you as a nano triplet!
  18. Stungbythebug is already on there, I'll add Buttwieser to the list
  19. According to Maps on Yahoo it's 27 minutes...now if you drive like I do, that's probably closer to 10 (note to self, don't describe car here just incase there are caching cops!) I'm about to start making calls to that area now...yikes! Yeah I talked to Billy on the phone just now. I really like that area too. Nice for caching and accommodation's. Would it be better (and easier) to create a place for all this info, like a yahoo group or something? I don't want to overstep the geocoin forum bounds. I made a group just to be on the safe side... http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Geowoodstock7info/
  20. According to Maps on Yahoo it's 27 minutes...now if you drive like I do, that's probably closer to 10 (note to self, don't describe car here just incase there are caching cops!) I'm about to start making calls to that area now...yikes! Any guesses on how many I should be asking about? 30 rooms? Last time I did this was for my wedding...
  21. Now to answer some questions... If you don't see your name on this 2nd draft, but it was on the first draft rest assured I still have your name. I started the project over and changed the template a bit, so while the first try I got 87 names on it, this try I got 106. This still and probably will be changed. Anyone who has seen the previous versions knows that the names are pretty small, I don't want them too small. I'm sending this draft to the mint to see if it is currently too small. So no worries, I will get you all on there plus the 40 extra I just asked for. I will do my BEST to keep your names fully visible. I can't always group you together with people you want to be with because I am trying to fit names into spaces that are available.

  23. I'm all for a group rate in Murfreesboro! What hotels do they have? CF30 Holiday Inn Murfreesboro EMBASSY SUITES MURFREESBORO HOTEL Doubletree Hotel Murfreesboro HAMPTON INN MURFREESBORO Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Murfreesboro SCOTTISH INNS MURFREESBORO Best Western Chaffin Inn Sleep Inn Murfreesboro Quality Inn Murfreesboro Comfort Suites Murfreesboro Econo Lodge Murfreesboro Ramada Limited Murfreesboro Wingate by Wyndham Mufreesboro Country Inn and Suites Murfreesboro Vista Inn-Stes Murfreesboro Value Place Murfreesboro Baymont Inn and Suites Murfreesboro Americas Best Value Inn Red Roof Inn Murfreesboro Crestwood Suites Murfreesboro Super 8 Murfreesboro Days Inn Murfreesboro Howard Johnson Murfreesboro Knights Inn Murfreesboro Microtel Inn More than likely if I try to call them tonight their reps who handle group rates wont be in, so I'll start making calls tomorrow...if ya'll want me to
  24. After a couple searches it looks like Murfreesboro has the best bet for Hotels. I found 25 hotels. However most of them, form the sites I accessed, will not let you book that far in advance... Also don't forget we can likely get a group rate! (Once said hotel is picked!)
