    Thanks for organizing this mission, the first one we've joined in many months!

  2. Watching "Cake Boss" tonight, we were dismayed when the picture on our HDTV screen dissolved into a badly-pixelated, black & white image. As the image started to resolve a little better, a message scrolled across the bottom of the screen...




    We managed to snap a quick picture before "Cake Boss" resumed...




    THANKS very much Mystery coiner! We're very excited to be taking part in this study.

  3. We're back from Geowoodstock and pretty much caught up on things. We have two extra Geowoodstock VIII event geocoins available for trade:







    Cache and Release (antique silver)


    Elementary Cache

    Geo Hugs

    Hibou_D (satin silver)

    Indian Watch Tower Benchmark Geocoin (Bronze)

    Lackeys 2009

    Lotus Compass Nepthys

    Lotus Compass Osiris

    Please send e-mail via profile. Thanks!

  4. A CALGARY coin?! Denise, please save me a set!


    Hey Bernice - Thanks for the positive comments. Got a set put aside for you. As for the 'dome, you can't see it from Crescent Heights anymore on account of EnCana's new Bow building.


    For those of you who've been to Geowoodstock before, how many coins do you recommend we bring for trading? I don't want to haul all of them down to Carnation and then end up bring most of them back home. I was thinking of bring 25 of each finish, for a total of 100 coins. Too many?

  5. Woohoo! Our new "Prairie Towers" geocoins arrived today, so we'll definitely have them at GW VIII for trading.


    Thanks to Chris of Landsharkz for taking our ideas and turning them into a geocoin design that really reflects the diverse landscapes of the Calgary area. One side of the coin features the iconic prairie grain elevator that can be found (in ever fewer numbers) in the countryside and small towns around Calgary. The other side features Calgary's city skyline, with the Canadian Rockies in the background. In case you haven't already guessed, Calgary, Alberta (Canada) is our home base.


    The coin is 2D (with some special 3D detailing along the train track), black nickel finish, trackable on geocaching.com (tracking number appears in the black area at the bottom of the city side) and has a custom icon (not yet finished). For those who like to know the particulars, this one is 42 mm diameter and 3 mm thick. The text "trackable at geocaching.com" is engraved on the edge.


    We minted 75 geocoins in each of four versions (left to right): spring, summer, fall and winter.




    I expect we'll be at the Friday night meet & greet and we'll for sure be at GW VIII and Midnight Geocoin Madness. Hope to make lots of trades while we're there!

  6. I've been busy with lots of other things, but have a growing pile of received coins on my desk so thought I'd better do a quick update. As of today, all incoming coins have been received with the exception of one from D.J.J. Rock (which I see from earlier posts has been mailed).


    Doing a quick look through the past few pages for this thread, it looks like The 4 F's, scificollector, Li-Z and Nefesh are still waiting on packages from us (but I may have missed a post or two). I can't believe how long packages from Canada take to reach their out-of-country destinations!!


    If I get a chance later today, I'll try to snap a photo or two to post.

  7. I am going to attach a different tag to different binders( which house my collection) When a fellow cacher logs a discovery on the tag I will send them the coin codes for that particular binder.


    Great idea! So far, I've only attached a tag to my binder full of non-trackable coins, so that anyone who looks through it can log something on geocaching.com

  8. There doesn't seem to be a running thread if you need help identifying a geocoin, so I thought I'd piggyback on this one to ask for some help. I finally (yes, I'm ashamed it took so long) got around to sorting and cataloguing all the geocoins we traded for at GCF09 in Salt Lake City (back on October 10). Our oldest GeoKid did a lot of our trading and neither one of us can remember the names of two of the geocoins that we swapped for. Any help would be appreciated so that we can properly add them to our keepers list on the GeoCoin Collection Trading Gallery website:




    Thanks in advance!

  9. With all kinds of errors and refreshes, I finally made it through to the payment step only to have 3 different types of turtles stripped out of my cart due to "out of stock". I am glad I was able to get 2 of them (Maui and Bora Bora) - 2 of each - so I'm hopeful I can trade one for the Tahiti version once the dust settles.
