  1. Hummm, I reserved this coin but never heard anything about it...not how to pay or about getting it. Bummer.
  2. Congrats Karen and Wendy! Love the coin and wish I could be there to cheer you on. Be sure to have someone take lots of pictures though! Got our coin reserved.
  3. We aren't much into trading coins anymore, but we are up for a gathering! We also have some of our personal coins from 2007 (and our mini coins from 2010 that we had made too!)
  4. Thank goodness for people smarter than I am! HA! I couldn't figure out the No L thing...knew it was a holiday thing (as the back of the coin states), but couldn't figure it out. I think that means that I need a nap! lol Thank you VERY much to the sender. I love mystery coins and this one is a great one!
  5. We just completed this series and all the caches are still there. I haven't listened to the podcast done by the cache owner, but apparently Nye County has allowed them to stay, just further from the road. I also second the person who said that there isn't much traffic out there...REALLY not much traffic! lol. We still pulled off on the shoulder when we could, but most of the time you could see WAY behind you and know when someone was coming. The biggest issue that we saw was people driving WAY off the road to get to the cache...making a new road next to the cache...seriously, it's only like 30 feet at MOST from the road, there is NO NEED to drive into the desert right near the cache. We also found every cache, no leapfrogging for us. It took us a good 2 days with only doing the "non ET caches" that were right near the road and not the Alien Head. The weather was perfect, not too cold and not too hot, and we were exhausted. We don't like "leapfrogging" (seems a bit too much like cheating to us), but that's up to the cachers that go out there. I wish we had more time to do the other non ET caches and the Alien head, but maybe we can get back out there someday. We didn't have an issue with gas at all, but we weren't running the heat or the air. We bought PBandJ for lunch and snacks, so we were ok with food too. It was insane really, stopping every 500 feet. Definitely something I'll only do once and only with friends. If I was by myself I would've quit after like 50! lol
  6. Posted by CO to ET001: First of all, thanks to all for the concerned posts, it is a true testament of the popularity of this trail. We have been in contact with our local reviewer and Groundspeak on the concerns with NDOT. HOWEVER, we have not had any contact with NDOT. We are currently planning on getting a resolution that makes all parties happy. Until we have spoken to all parties, we are not really going to comment on what the plans are with the trail…no one knows. From what we have received from Groundspeak, they would like us to put some extra warnings on the cache pages, it seems what we saw of the NDOT email…they are not looking to take the whole trail down, but would like some changes…whether that be moving some or all caches, or some added warnings on the caches pages. We will not know until we have talked to them. Thank you all for your patience, I know a lot of you have money invested in trips to come out to visit. We hope to try and get in contact with the necessary people this week and get some answers and make whatever changes we need to make to keep this trail alive. We will post more when we know more, but we are not going to be like the media and speculate on stuff when we don’t have all the facts. Until then, I would just like to add this… [br][p] "Please drive very carefully while participating in this geocache series. Truck drivers and the general public have complained that vehicles are stopping on the road in blind spots and / or pulling out in front of fast moving traffic causing near misses. This is very dangerous and may result in someone getting hurt and/or this entire series of geocaches being archived."
  7. Well, I will be there with 2 friends in 12 days ...I'll report what we find. I will be very disappointed if the caches are gone, but if they are we'll take our money to CA and do the caches near Barstow. (Never thoughts I'd be back there after living there for 2 years from 02-05! lol)
