Here is what I got yesterday...

 

8bf49b80-bd26-475b-9dc1-57e354407859.jpg

 

Which two ACGA coins did you get? I've never seen one with soft enamel.

And a Lunenburg County Cachers coin too! Nicely done!

 

And what is that coin with the map of Digby, Yarmouth and Shelburne counties on it?

 

The ACGA are hard and soft enamel. Both have the same tracking number. The coin with the map of Digby, Yarmouth and Shelburne counties on it is the Southwest Nova Scotia coin.

 

Thanks for the info on the SW NS coin. Have to add that to my seeker list :D

I was just wondering which province the ACGA coins were for. The other side has different coats of arms for Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador.

Sitting here at the computer affords me a good view of the driveway, so I was able to watch the mail lady pull in this morning...she doesn't do that unless I've got a package!! Yep, that's a nice box she's bringing to the door!!

 

I know it says not to open until Christmas, but let me tell you, the last few days have been pretty rough on me, I have been really struggling, so I decided Christmas was TODAY!! Funny how these boxes and packages always seem to find the recipient at just the right moment, I truly needed a smile!

 

I opened the beautifully wrapped box to find a card from Santa!! Under that was a great geocaching mug wrapped in garland! Then I found a few buttons, some patches, a nice flashlight, a geocaching pin, a couple of wraps for the TB tags,ageocaching wristband, 5 camo'd film cannisters and 4 coins!!

 

The coins: 2 "See you in Sacramento" VW hippie bus coins (one light blue and one teal"a Geocaching Saarland 2008 (I've never seen this one before...nice!!) and lastly, a CrazyCaveLovers GW5 "Girls just gotta have fun" coins!!

 

THANK YOU very much for lifting my spirits today, my sorta mystery santa (only clues were the Windsor bags and the CCL coin)!! Not being able to participate in the santa mission, I was a bit bummed, but this completely unexpected surprise sure was AWEOME and a great show of kindness!! The card was very touching, I THANK you for the kind words!!

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

you know how you think something is going to be one size and then it turns out much larger. this was one of those things, this is a big coin.

We haven't posted in this thread before, but have been receiving so many envelopes for trades of our Highwood Pass geocoin that it's time to start sharing! Today we received 9 coins in trade, 4 coins we purchased and a trio of pathtags. We received multiples of 4 coins (different finishes), but I only included one of each design in the photo.

I don't know what to do...I know that there are cool things waiting for me in my box and more coming(650 miles away) and I'm scheduled to go there for a visit later this week. The problem is...I'm filling in on a Dedicated fleet, and If I step away to go get my mail, I may not get back in. No big deal, except that outside this fleet, work is really slow right now. This assignment has me on a guaranteed daily pay rate, and I'm afraid to go back out into the "work comes and goes" realm...where I might find myself sitting around with no work, and therefore no pay. I just don't know what to do...

Well - they are out and I got 10.

Which I'm hugging close...... No, I'm not trading at this stage....

 

2008 is almost at an end, but finally the NZ Kiwi geocoin hit my mailbox....

gps.org.nz has told me that now the domestic sales are complete, that there will be going international, so I guess others will get them too....

 

In case you don't recognise it - that's a stylised kiwi - the national symbol of New Zealand.

of course you do! you keep working and get your mail when you can. it will be waiting for you.

Maybe not...If it doesn't fit in the PO Box, they only hold it so long before they send it back. Anyway, I thought the problem might be solved for me, and it has. When I got back to the truck, there was a message that I have been released from that fleet, so I should be headed to the Box any day now. Perfect timing. I just hope they can keep me busy now.

Oh man, it really sucks that you were taken off that route! I know how slow the time around Christmas and after Christmas is for truckers, been there, done that!

 

Well, make the best of it, enjoy your package and the holidays, at least you have a better chance of avoiding the holiday idjits out there on the road the next couple of weeks a bit better!

 

Keep the shiny side up and the rubber side down!

Thank you. It was good while it lasted. They have had me waiting since Friday, but still getting paid, so I knew it couldn't last too long, before they either put me back to work, or set me loose. I'll have to go to the truck wash if I'm supposed to have a shily side!!
