  1. Tired of the abuse, no longer looking to get rid of the coin. Back into the box of mementos it goes.
  2. Alright, PM me with interesting trades. I have a few pending offers, but open to more. JoeyBob
  3. Alright, I can't sell the coin. PM me offers of trades, and let's see what can happen. I DO have the coin in my possession, it was parked in a retired cache that I placed on Topsail Island, NC. Jon locked the log, because someone "logged" the coin without being in possession. Originally, the tracking number was the serial number.
  4. Circumstances necessitate raising some money, and as much as I hate to see it go, I may have to sell my treasure. Serial #006. Haven't seen a version 1 sell anywhere, so what might the value be? JoeyBob
  5. Congrats to both you guys! I finally hit #200 this week, other things have taken priority in my life. Man, the good old days when 40+ caches were considered serious caching are WAY over! JoeyBob
  6. Several of the local club members have that particular Arrow antenna, and all are pleased with it. Some of the the local hams made contacts recently on Echo, but they had an advantage antenna wise: Great antenna!
  7. I just came from HRO in Sunnyvale. They are having "Icom Days" on Saturday, the 14th, with the following discounts: $5 off HTs $10 off mobiles $25 off bases. Enjoy! JoeyBob
  8. I am sorely tempted by the $399 Icom IC-703 at HRO, but I need to pass my General first. Code is not my native language!
  9. Sorry to hear this news. I met Pizzaman at the Birkhead Bonfire. Really nice guy. Sigh. JoeyBob

    Garmin iQue 3600

    Just talked to the Garmin rep at Outdoor World in Baltimore on friday, took home a shiny brochure. Will have one of these for "work" (cough, cough) this summer. Yes, my accountant is wonderful.
  11. One of the local cachers (El Diablo), makes a big deal out of the century mark, and does devilishly hard caches to commemorate the event. Mine was aptly named <---Hell is just ahead. I tag teamed with Cache_Hunter 1 for a two state, mega multi stage cache that ended with dinner and cold beer. I also got one of the first Geo hiking sticks, an engraved mug, and a commemorative limited edition key chain/bag tag. I helped with an earlier version of this cache for Hawk-eye and Triffids 100th. Those guys in the Greensboro, NC area are the best!
  12. Sorry, I took a new job and will be in Delaware for a while. Sounds like fun, though. See everybody someday!
  13. I have a personal travel bug myself. My locationless cache is just around the corner from my house. However, I got tired of logging it into the cache and deleting the logs. Now I only use it if caching a long distance away. Someday I would like to go back and log all the caches I have found, just to see what the mileage is. I am closing in on 3000 miles already! JoeyBob
  14. DD, where are you located? I went to the Sams in Raleigh, NC yesterday, and they didn't have any of these.
  15. Okay, it took a week longer to get to the cache than planned, but we got it. Wimseyguy was already there when I arrived, and we teamed up for the find. Nice cache! We left two travel bugs to make the trip to Sweden with you- Thanks, JoeyBob
  16. helixblue, will be accepting the challenge this weekend. Just downloaded the game, and look forward to finding the cache. May have to get JeffersonStone to help me, we are undefeated as a team- ;-) JoeyBob
  17. I tend to not check out stats for the forums. A not found message from someone with 2 finds obviously won't have me worrying too much about a cache being missing. Critcisms of hiding technique or cache location from someone who bought their gps the day before are good for some chuckles!
  18. You have seen my staff and my son's if you went to the website. You can't believe the attention to detail involved here, pictures don't do justice! And no, I am not getting a kickback! JoeyBob
  19. El Diablo and the Evil Horde did a multi for Cache_Hunter 1 and myself over Labor Day that was a killer. The cache went from Raleigh, NC to Roanoke, VA. We each did half the stages, and met in Greensboro, NC. I had done a total of 15 stages, and 280+ miles by the end of the day. The cache was converted to a traditional after we found it. <---- Hell is just ahead, I still get nervous twitches sometimes. [shudder). El Diablo is the master of the multi!

  20. And yes, shawhh and I have run into each other!
  21. The Abbie Dogs just posted a meeting for the 30th. I love the restaurant they picked, memories of my wasted college days (and nights). Anybody remember Harpo's, Groucho's, Ferrari's, and the Bears Den II? Whoops, I think I am dating myself. JoeyBob
  22. I could see picking up a travel bug or sticker, WE4NCS might keep you in business just with the numberof bugs he starts!Let us know what you decide to do. Is your former geoname the same as your business?
  23. Hey to all our Gulf coast brethren (and sisters), good luck with that nasty storm. After our visits by Floyd 99 and Fran 96, most North Carolina cachers don't look forward to any more storms. I live 150 miles inland, and Fran took us out for weeks. Hope you all make it through okay if Isidore comes visiting, caches can almost always be replaced! JoeyBob
  24. I also have had near cardiac arrest on seeing stick-snakes underfoot. Took the kids around Shelley Lake in the stroller one time and drove over a little garter snake. I wish someone had videotaped it: 6 foot 2 inch man screaming and levitating over the path, 18 inch snake scared to death, and two small kids laughing at Daddy doing a funny dance.
