I haven´t got anything in my mailbox since the River Cacher memorial coins and now we are moving so I have made an update on my adress in the geocoinforum user adressbook.

 

We are moving north to the place where I (grodan) grew up. Will be so nice for the kids. So from june 18 we have a new adress.

 

All the best to all and have a nice summer.

Whoa....hold up there... I have been away from the game for awhile and just started caching again last month after about a year other than a few minor ones.... I had boughtsome coins off of RiverCacher and some other caching stuff off of eBay. We got to joking around back and forth and made small talk at times in emails. I knew he was sick, but did I read that right as a "memorial" coin???? He died?? When did that happen? is there a thread? how are the kids?

 

I hopped on here to post some pics of the coins I got in the mail yesterday but now they don't seem as important...

I am at work with no way to take a picture, nonetheless, I didn't feel like I could wait.

 

I went to the mailbox and pulled out a package from Tasmania - my long-time trading buddy, Greenie's gift to me. I ripped it open, thinking it would be one of my "Top Five" geocoins and a geocoin I dared not even name fell into my hands - an AE Carousel Horse.

 

:o:wub::o:wub::o:wub::o:wub::o

 

Bless you, Liz. This geocoin means a great deal to me and you knew it - I suspect this is your very own sent as a gift from the heart.

 

I'm just gobsnobbered. Thank you, thank you, thank you, girl.

 

:ph34r:

 

Is your seeking list up to date?

Love the Manatee with the duck ring! Can you tell me more about it? :D

 

It was a donation to a local event (along with the hummer). All I know is that it is called "Manatee". The event is in Florida so everyone will want it. Thanks Liz!

Cool!!

 

How do you get on with the Mail strike and bills? Do companies just let people away with them going into over due, or does it create headaches for everyone?

Very nice, MoonCat & KTD!

 

No mail for me for some time, but yesterday I got a 2007 Compass rose in my cache! That must be pretty rare. Unfortunately it was not for me to keep. I have mailed it back to the owner, who was worried that it might get muggled. Can't blame her for that, I wanted to muggle it myself! :)

My mialbox brought me a wonderful surprise.. and a very sad disappoinment yesterday. Sivota graciously sent me a surprise coin in the mail that she had gotten on a trade and thought would fit into my collection! (Thanks for thinking of me!!)

 

Sadly the mailer was torn and only the card was left in the envelope. :(

 

That's no good! I've had a couple of packages lately where the edges of envelopes were very nearly worn through. The problem normally arises when coins are not secured inside the package and they move around, quickly wearing through the edges of the envelope. One of the ones last week that was doing this was from a geocoin store! (I must let them know.)

Oh, I am so sorry to hear that. It was a Canine Cachers 2006 geocoin.

Since I don't collect dog themed coins I thought you might want to have it.

This is the third time this happens in some years and I realy feel bad about this.

Well, dogs cross my path every once in a while and I hope the next one will stay in the mailer.

Since my internet at home is down I can't post pictures.. but my sadness of the day before quickly passed as I got a new mailer yesterday!

 

Thank you so much Drneal! The coin from the math trade came (Rochester Maze GPS coin)and it's very neat. I hadn't seen the coin before but I'm from Rochester NY. It has the Rochester Museum and Science center logo on the back which is pretty cool. It's not dog themed but this one was local and intriqued me!

 

The big surprise though was not this neat coin that I knew was coming! It was instead the hitchhiker in the envelope with that coin. A lovely "Kathy's Coin" has been added to my collection. It's just stunning!! Even more beautiful then I could have imagined. I'll treasure it and keep a place in my binder next to it for the new one when it comes out!

 

thank you!

Thank you for thinking of me anyhow!

I'm sure my bear collecting dad will love the bears, but can you imagine which one is my star?

According to this coin I own a piece of Mars now:

So I think it's time to arrange a space caching trip :D

 

Beautiful coin but I see a number....and I am wondering....does this says that your coin is the 726 of the 4000 that were minted? So.... 4000 were made????

 

but then I see a lot number 10/273.....

 

I am confused :blink:

I'm gonna make a wild guess that the lot number (010/273,) and sub parcel numbers (0726/4000,) refer to the parcel of the planet mars that you become owner of with the purchase of the coin. These coins look really familiar...I gotta wonder if Venus is next?
