  1. Here is my latest nickle design. Hope you like it! http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/ii267/Boots_treadlightly/Geocaching_Sig_Items/BootsNickle5ontemplate.jpg http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?app=forums&module=post&section=post&do=reply_post&f=44&t=104724
  2. Got my Dr. Neal nickle in the mail today! It looks AWESOME! Im working on making up some new Boots... nickels tonight, so hopefully I will be able to return the favor shortly!
  3. I don't have anything new recently to send, but I'd be happy to take one of those caching2themaxx coins if you don't mind? I can send me address via pm if you're interested.
  4. Dr. Neal, I think I have one of yours titled "Out caching with the boys" and another "Out Caching with my Heine" or something similar. If you have other nickels, I'd be happy to trade! Do you not have one or two of mine already?
  5. It's been a LOOOONNNGGGG Time since I've been in these Wooden Nickel trading forums. I know there are some new faces since I've last been active, so I would like to resurrect this thread and see if there are any folks out there that would like a copy or two of my "Boots..." handcrafted wooden nickel. I'e got about 20-30 made at the moment, but I'd like to get back into making them again. I think it's been a few years! I believe that you can view an image of my coins at http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/ii267/Boots_treadlightly/Geocaching_Sig_Items/BootsSig4.jpg Also, if you are interested, I've photographed most of the nickels that I've received over the years. If you'd like to see my inventory, check it out HERE: http://s266.photobucket.com/albums/ii267/Boots_treadlightly/Geocaching_Sig_Items/ Note that this inventory hasn't been updated in a couple of years. I've probably got over 200 nickels and poker chips in my collection now... probably another 10-15 pathtags, and a handful of coins as well.
  6. Got my nickels in the mail today from Nelmel. Thanks for the sweet looking nickels!
  7. Got another nickel in the mail this morning for Nelmel. You should have it soon! on a side note, my wife has family in the Louisville area, and we've been there a couple of times! Small world.
  8. Got nickels in the mail yesterday from Edsfind and OldSchool. Great Nickels! Mine went out in yesterday's mail, so they should be there soon! NelMel, I am going to hit you up with a PM to trade! Looks Good!
  9. Private Message Sent. Hope to trade soon!
  10. You know, there are faster ways to get to caches than hitch hiking. Just sayin' LOL
  11. I sent out two packages (Umreeh and MooseJaw) on Monday, so they should be arriving shortly! Sorry I didn't get in to post until today. Kelcacher, i'd be more than happy to make a trade with ya (so much for waiting till after graduation!!!). Boots...
  12. I've got a photo album online of most of my collected nickels. you can check it out at: http://s266.photobucket.com/albums/ii267/Boots_treadlightly/Geocaching_Sig_Items/ Specifically, here is the one that I am trading currently. http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/ii267/Boots_treadlightly/Geocaching_Sig_Items/BootsSig4.jpg I periodically create new designs for my nickels, so if you don't like this one, wait a little bit, and maybe I'd hit on a design that you like! Boots...
  13. I've got about 20 or so made up that have been in my Geobag for about 3 months. I'd be happy to send one or two out to ya, MooseJaw. I will drop you a private message.
  14. I've got about a month and a half before I graduate from Grad School. Once that it over, I am hoping to get back into caching a bit more. Homework has been a killer for me for the past 3.5 years, but I am looking forward to saying goodbye to that. I will definitely be back into the nickel game. I bought a box of wooden nickel seconds from a manufacturer. I design my coins on the computer, print them out, and affix them over the wood, so the errant designs pre-printed on the nickels are not an issue. These "seconds" are much cheaper. I think I bought 500 or more (sold by weight) for about 30 bucks? It was a while ago, so numbers are fuzzy. Anyway, count me in. I have GrnXham(?) and Speedracer, and most of the old "regulars" in here, as we've already traded, but as for the new folks? I'd say lets get a trade on! In June! Boots...
  15. I'd love to know how many nickels Speedracer has now... .I think I have about 150 or so that I've collected, but I would guess you've got a lot more than I do!
  16. I also wonder if the number of new logs might be a reflection of the number of event caches being hosted in recent years. One event can quickly rack up many logs. This is especially so if you are in a region where multiple-logging of events for each "event-only cache" is considered acceptable practice. It seems that there are more and more events every year. More players, more people that want to get everyone together. Just a thought.
  17. There are actually quite a few places that do it, but to be honest, I really didn't want to go wading through these 38 pages to find the link either. A google search for wooden nickels brought up a few that do it. I bought wooden nickel blanks from www.wooden-nickel.com, and affixed my own labels to them.
  18. Getting out of the Wooden Nickel game, N8urgrl?
  19. I haven't produced any nickels in quite a while, but I recently bought some 1.5" circular labels, and so it's got me to thinking about it again. Does anyone here buy their blank wooden nickels online? I am looking for an online source that can do a whole lot better than the $3 for 22 nickels that I get at the local craft store. There are lots of sellers online, but wondered if anyone had any suggestions? Since this is a 1.5" label, I am looking for a blank that does NOT have the rounded, beveled edges (that I so prefer to the flat sides, but oh well!). Thanks in advance!
  20. Tavis, I would love to get in on that too, if you are still looking for nickels. Let me know. I am hoping to make a few from my new design, fairly soon.
  21. So sorry to hear of your loss! As a fellow pet owner, I know how big a part of the family those little ones can become. Hope you and your's are coping well. Know that we are thinking about you.
  22. I finally got new ink in my printer. I have drafted a 5th design for my nickel backs. Take a look and let me know what you think.
  23. If you still need more, I finished another batch today and would be willing to send you a couple. If you're interested, e-mail me and let me know where to send them. SarahBelle, I got your nickel in the mail a day or two ago! Beautiful. nicely done. I always appreciate the hand-drawn art, as I certainly can't do that stuff myself. I am sorry that it took me so long to get one out to you. I dropped it in the mail two days back, so hopefully you will get it in the mail soon. Kaboomcult, I found a few nickels that I still have but had forgotten about. If you are still interested, I'd love to trade. I will send you a note.
  24. Vanelle, I attended your event last night. Good fun! Hope to see you there for it next year!
  25. Man, I really need to get back into making some more nickels. I gotta go get another ink cartridge SOON! As soon as I do, KaboomCult, I would be happy to trade with ya!
