  1. Hello forum friends! I hope you are all doing well. If you haven't already done so today, please take a moment of your time to reflect on all the blessings we share, and keep the family, friends, and loved ones of all those we lost on 9/11/01 in your thoughts and prayers. Never forget. Please also say a little prayer for all our active duty firefighters on the line and working in our community every day too, they need it. Thank you to all who bid or browsed the charity auctions. These auctions helped raise over $110.00 dollars that I will personally match and I challenge you all to make a donation to the charity of your choice, too! Welcome to the 9/11 Memorial "Code 3" Geocoin giveaway contest! Here is a link to a picture of the prize: Code 3 Geocoin Artist Edition DISABLING POP UP BLOCKER: You MAY need to receive an online PRIVATE MESSAGE during this giveaway. So, if you are unsure of, or have never received a private message here, you might want to disable your pop-up blocker now. Go to "Tools" on the top toolbar (top of this window), select "Internet Options" from the drop down menu. Select the "Privacy" tab from the new open window. Uncheck the small box that reads "Turn on Pop-up Blocker". That's it! Remember to turn the blocker "back on" after the giveaway. CONTEST RULES: This will be a REAL TIME question and answer guessing game similar to the game 20 QUESTIONS. It's a very simple game. Your job is to be the 1st to correctly guess the secret answer through the process of elimination questions. I have already revealed the answer to Ladybee4t and she is sworn to secrecy under punishment of being tickled to death, so don't try to get the answer from her...lol...you may GUESS ONE ANSWER PER POST and ASK ONE VERY SPECIFIC YES OR NO QUESTION PER POST at this forum thread. An example of a SPECIFIC YES OR NO QUESTION: is the object blue? rather than, is the object a dark color? or, is the object over 50 pounds? rather than, is the object heavy? You must allow a forum reply post from at least 1 other member BEFORE you can guess and ask again (not counting the reply from Ladybee4t or myself). Refresh this thread often to see new thread posts. You are allowed to google or use any reference material source to determine the correct answer, and you can even contact your lifeline for help as many times as you want as long as they aren't Ladybee4T or myself! Pretty easy, right?! Remember, your guess and question will be ignored if the rules are not followed precisely. Ladybee4t and I will be answering the thread reply posts in the order in which they are received (the time stamps will make this easy and accurate), please be patient as internet connection speed may delay the process. We both may not know everything there is to know about the correct answer subject, so in the event we do not know the answer, or your question has already been asked, or your question is too generalized, we will reply honestly with DON'T KNOW or ALREADY ASKED or BE MORE SPECIFIC, your answer guess WILL BE ACCEPTED, but you must wait for another member to post before you can ask and guess again. I will update this original thread post periodically throughout the contest and post SOME answers to relevant questions already asked (posted below), so hopefully, we don't get too many repeat questions or answers. Please review this original thread post often for updates and help. The first forum user to post the correct answer WINS! I must stress that the correct answer NEEDS TO BE SPELLED CORRECTLY! In this day and age, there is no reason on earth to give an incorrect spelling of the answer, but in the event you do post an INCORRECT SPELLING, we will post a "NO or INCORRECT" reply to your thread, BUT...and this is the ONLY TIME THIS MAY HAPPEN...you will receive a PRIVATE MESSAGE prompting you to check your spelling (this is why you may need to disable your pop-up blocker). If someone else posts the CORRECTLY SPELLED answer AFTER your incorrect spelling, THEY WILL WIN! So, please, please, please spell your answer CORRECTLY the 1st time around! In the event of a scandalous controversy, I will consult the wise King Solomon, and if he so decides, the prize may be cut into several small pieces and distributed accordingly! Good Luck to All and have fun! Let the games begin! RELEVANT QUESTIONS ALREADY ASKED: ~living item? NO ~once living? YES ~made of metal? NO ~is it gray? NO ~wood or petrified wood or fossil? NO ~was it a plant? NO ~was it a male person? YES ~pro athlete? NO ~in the olympics? NO ~live in the USA? YES ~died on 9/11/01? YES the correct answer was: TODD BEAMER a 9/11/01 hero among other heroes aboard united flight 93. the answer was guessed correctly by SgtMikal at 08:41 PM eastern time! congratulations to the winner! since sunsetmeadowlark also guessed correctly just a few seconds after the winner, you also will receive a "code 3" artist edition gecoin! thank you to all who participated. congratulations to the winners. i hope that this geocoin will remind everyone of the ultimate sacrifice people made on that fateful day and continue to make for our freedoms. The "code 3" geocoin is now permanently retired. ~Odyssey Voyager~ MODERATOR: YOU MAY NOW CLOSE THIS THREAD.
  2. i know this is a rhetorical question and meant purely as "tongue in cheek" on your part, but i'm glad you posted this. there are those in this country and around the world, that want us to "move on" from all the 9/11 memorial events. i can understand the desire of many to not want to "re-live" that tragedy over and over every year. my heart is very heavy, too. i lost many brother firefighters that day, the largest loss of firefighters in history, and it should ALWAYS be recognized. so, when i use the term "awareness" when referring to this geocoin, i use it to emphasize the SIGNIFICANCE of the event, not to pretend that someone may not know what occured on that day. .
  3. congratulations on discovering this great sport and on your healthy outlook! continued success in both endeavors. you can contact me by clicking on the underlined "odyssey voyager" username above my avatar picture on the left hand side of this forum post (which will open my profile page) and click on the link "send message". when sending me a message include your email address and i'll contact you through my email on all the geocoin details. looking forward to your reply. happy geocaching and merry geocoin collecting! ~dave~ .
  4. "decathlon" would be great for a classic theme, i also like the "binary code" as a possible alternative theme. Binary Code ~odyssey voyager~ Land of Enchantment Geocachers Organization (L.E.G.O. host for the next 10-10-10 multi event. Members to date: 1.) .
  5. okay, i'd like to "throw my hat in the ring" for any of the following 09-09-09 event geocoins available for a trade or purchase: ~ arizona ~ california ~ colorado ~ hawaii ~ pennsylvania ~ south carolina ~ japan ~ if interested, please browse my trade list and just send me an email or a P.M. thanks! My Updated Trade List ~odyssey voyager~ Land of Enchantment Geocachers Organization (L.E.G.O.) .
  6. vanelle, thanks for posting a few great pics for those of us who could not attend an event this year. lets see more pics! .
  7. if the above tip doesn't help, give it a couple of days for the mileage to reset. i've had the same thing happen with several of my own geocoins. .
  8. welcome to geocaching, geocoin discovery, and the geocoin forum. it may take a little time, but you will soon be very familiar with everything there is to know about geocoins. so far, it seems you have done a great job on your first few geocache finds and logs! congratulations! so, some basics about logging geocoins...most geocoins you find in a geocache will have a "tracking number". with this geocoin and the tracking number you can do several things on the website. first you need to find the geocoin page, so on the geocaching.com home page, find the link on the left hand side that reads "TRACKABLE ITEMS" and click on it. you will then find the box that reads "Enter the Tracking Number of the Item:" you can enter the geocoin tracking number here and click on the "Track" button. you will then be taken directly to the geocoin page, where you can "add a log entry" (top right hand side of the page). when you go to "add a log entry" you can then either "grab it from somewhere else" (remove the geocoin from the geocache and place it into your online inventory, if you took the geocoin with you) or "write note" (add a brief note on the online geocoin page to the owner of the geocoin or other geocachers about this geocoin) or "discovered it" (you saw the geocoin but you didn't remove it from the geocache). you can also write a few words about your experience. once you finish the log, go to the bottom of the page and click the "Submit log entry" button to complete the transaction. it would help you greatly to understand how geocoins can be logged, if you had your very own geocoin to keep and take with you as you find new geocaches. you can then log your own geocoin into and out of geocaches before moving other geocoins. so, if you like, i can send you a new geocoin as a welcome gift from the forum. just let me know! its always fun to welcome a new geocacher to the geocoin collecting community! ~odyssey voyager~
  9. i'd like to send out a big "thank you" to all that have browsed and bid on these charity auctions. please join me here in the forum immediately after the auctions end on 9/11/09 at 8:15 P.M. Eastern Time U.S., for the real time forum geocoin giveaway. never forget. .
  10. good luck to all the events around the globe! i'm also looking forward to seeing a few pictures here. .
  11. thank you for your story. i've read so many uplifting stories associated with the "code 3" geocoin. i was also very moved when geocachers "BVnLJ" placed their very own Limited Edition "code 3" geocoin at the site of the United Flight 93 crash. This "discovery only" geocoin is now archived and will become part of a permanent Memorial Tribute Display to the Heroes of Flight 93. i hope to someday have the Honor of "discovering" this geocoin myself, in person, as i pay my respect at the Memorial. i hope you join me here on 9/11/09 for a chance to win a "code 3" geocoin. best wishes. .
