From what I remember these are squadron coins. Not sure how they are given out though, I know that the other branches of the military have coins so maybe this is a similar token. I'm right down the road from Chas AFB and always in the flight pattern for the C17's flying over head at 3 in the morning. :)

No caching for me at the moment because i have flu. Fortunately the mailman dropped an enveloppe

with 10 snowman path tags.

Li-Z really made my day and braught the x mas turtle she kindly traded with me. She also had another kiwi coin for trade and gave my a sign for in the car. I think i'll try to turn that into a kind of TB for the car.

Oh!!!! Is that a challenge coin???? WOW!! I always wanted a challenge coin! I do not think they have to do with geocaching, but they are beautiful!!! Lucky you!!! -_-

I received all those nice coins recently.

 

A very cute Lehigh Mafia which I bought on ebay, a trade with kd&prettierhalf for their personal and their Jukebox. The Washington National Monument was from them as part of the the re-gifting mission. We also purchased a pair of Canada coins from Landsharkz which are very colorful.

Today I walked down the driveway complaining about the cold and the snow, and I said "I can't wait for warmer weather"

And a little voice in my mailbox said, "NOT ME".

I opened my mailbox and The Cutest little Penguin Hopped out!!!!

I Love It . I ordered it on 1/11 and it's here allready. WOW.

A good mail day

There was a box in my mailbox today (rather a card - that I had a box). It held the Mariners Astrolabe Geocoin. When the Navigational Coins came out, I started getting them for my son - he is more than pleased with this one. It is far more than a coin but a skillfully made, beautiful tool. In addition there was a Cache Angel geocoin - much cuter than I expected - wished I had gotten more than one of these little cuties.

 

Hope other folks who ordered this awesome tool have the same reaction - wow!

This week I received two New Zealand GPS society coins, a Brahean and a cute litlle kiwi coin that I ordered from New Zealand. The brahean and the little kiwi coins came together with a handy decryption card, muggle card and a fridge magnet that says 'you hide it, we find it'. Thanks Andy and Kathy! I wanted to take a photo of the magnet as well, but Fantasties keeps hiding it and I can't find it right now ;-) This morning it was still on the fridge....

 

I also traded some coins with Millieballon for a Wisconsin 2008 cow (I love it, it's going to travel soon...) and a Landsharkz Gecko (really nice colors!). Millieballon added a Beaver travel guide and a snowman pathtag as a gift. Thanks Millieballon ;)

I also got two ammoboxes (not in the mailbox, but by the mailman), as I'm planning to hide my first caches soon :-)

I'm glad the coin arrived... I also know what it's like to watch your dog get older...our first schnauzer died at age 15, and is missed. The two dogs pictured on the front of the coin, Logan (age 7) and Heineken (age 4...my rescue dog, but I'm not sure who rescued who,) are my constant companions. The original picture used for the coin, was copied from a charcoal of my dogs, done at "Camp Gone To The Dogs" and transferred to the coin by Personal Geocoins. I'm honored to have my coin in the hands of such a devoted Schnauzer owner!

It was a nice day today -- three mailers. : )

 

I got a Bodensee Winter BBQ coin

Also a "Geocoin Collecting" coin and one of Avroair's 08-08-08 event coins (black and yellow) (and an extra pin)

And the AE of the "Peace On Earth" suncatcher from Wicksworks (AND a pathtag, thank you so much!) -- beautiful, beautiful coin!

 

They were all purchases, mostly on eBay, and I've been waiting for them on pins & needles. They certainly make going to the post office fun!

Gatoulis has the matching #099 in the Moonraker edition...I chose for you 2 to have matching #'s beacuse you two came around the same time with virtually the same enthusiasm. ;)

 

Enjoy and glad it finally made it!
