Enjoying watching the posts and package pictures. Can't wait for the 'mother lode' when The GReat Pumpkin finally arrives! 😎
  4. We only send what we'd want to receive! Very glad that you're pleased. 😎

(<-- small hint as to where it originated 😎) I will be saving it to open on Halloween! 👻🍂💀
  6. We send with tracking, but OK! And speaking of tracking, does anyone know if it is part of the "Planned Slowdown of Services" that an International Package from KY, bound for Canada, has to go through - - - Miami, FL??? 😎

We're going to do our Very Best to surprise these good folk of the 'caches 😊
  9. The best time of the year for me. Many happy memories. I wish the same for you!

Many thanks for again having this Halloween Mission GeoCharmer81. Soooo glad Bethie_Biker reminded me - we've had a few things distracting us of late 😎
  11. On 5/10 Laval K-9 said: Her mission was shipped March 10th and is probably floating on a raft somewhere in the Atlantic Bun-ny Shark Doo Doo Doo-doo Doo-doo...

    Fake GeoCoins

    Quote Unit473L: "If I can buy a standard TB for AUD$9 (average price to get one shipped here in northern Australia) and it's going to cost me $10 or more to make the proxy, then I may as well just send out the original TB. " Ah! Location, Location, Location? In the US we can get aluminum disks for about $0.40USD each in small quantity (plastic just 1/4 the price). I would have thought your proximity to China might produce lower prices for you, but I am NO expert on Australian import duties and fees, nor freight or for that matter market prices (the only time I send something to a friend in Oz it took 3 months to get there!). Likewise on the label stock. Here I could make custom printed items such as this for less than $0.50USD apiece all materials (landed costs) considered in small quantity. Sorry it doesn't work the same for you

    Fake GeoCoins

    I think what you're doing is great! But a couple of things stood out for me: wood and paper. I realize that you want to keep costs down, but why deal with inherently porous materials? You could - only suggestions - use a plastic disk - like a poker chip, or more costly an aluminum disk. And there are water resistant and water-proof label materials suitable for (especially) laser printers. Worst come to worst you glue a printed waterproof material onto aluminum with something like contact cement and have nothing to soak up water and no further steps. What do you think?
  14. Hmmm...Have you ever heard of the term "sarcasm"? You might consider my posts in that light. Now do you feel a little foolish? I know I would were I to be you. Have fun caching! 😎
  15. Instead of trying to make something fit your preconceptions, why don't you just read back as suggested. You'll feel a little foolish when you do, I'll predict..
  16. Follow it back to the original post. I'm sure you'll get the gist. And if not...well, what's life without a little mystery? ?
  17. NORAD reports we no longer have Easter Bunny on radar, Laval K-9...We're sorry...
  18. Now, I TOL' ye to stae oot of ma garden, R-r-r-r-rabbits! I'm holdin' ye're wee packets as hostages - he-he-he-he-heeee!
  19. I have a very Happy post to make! Yesterday, Bethie_Biker brought in the mail - yep, she actually walked that far! And, she said, 'I have an envelope here, for us both, that seems too heavy.' On opening said envelope, a modest, unassuming craft envelope of card stock, I found the most wonderful surprise! mopirate had sent us one of their Signature Geocoins! Thank you so much, mopirate, for being so thoughtful. You Did Not Need To! Seeing you happy was enough reward for us!
  20. Or, as I said days ago: Thank you for improving the cross-platform experience. And sincere thanks for bringing back functionalities when the furor becomes too much. ?
  21. I have had the same experience. The few shipments I have had undeliverable have taken up to a month - to come back from within the US. I know, from the news, a proximate cause - and I agree with you that I don't like this at all. And there is NO alternative that is cost effective in most cases. I remember when, for a penny, I could get a First Class letter across town in one day. Now our mail has to go from Hopkinsville to Nashville - before coming back - and costs 55 cents -5400% more than it once did - and now they won't even guarantee Priority Mail to be to the delivering Post Office (not in the recipient's hands) in 3 days for over $8 per letter (which is nearly an 80,000% increase). But, as my wife lovingly likes to point out - I'm an old man and so should be quiet ?
  22. Small additional effect I have noticed online since the change: I can no longer log out from any other page than the main page. Tonight the caret dropdown (top right of page)from pages other than the main page contained Settings only. Another bug - or am I going to have to dig into my system?

  23. You are more than welcome! We're pleased that you are happy and that your Mission will now be a good memory. For us, I like to remember this quote from a classic movie: "Every time a bell rings, a Rescue Missioneer gets his wings..." ?
