ok...I'm sending my pkg of 3 to Team Maddie UK.

 

Does youre family think you are nuts for giving away the coins? I told my dad who is also a cacher and he thinks that coins are for collecting...So I told my wife and she asked" Why are you giving your coins away when you enjoy getting them so much"

 

So, I told her I'm giving away the extras and she replied" You have extras?"

 

Um...Yes...Just a few...and one of my coin secrets got compromised...hehehe :antenna:

I have given away the screw coin and the maine.

 

Now who wants the Wisconsin?

Ok, I have completed my lineup of coin giveaways for The Grand Experiment. These are all 2005 Washington state coins (the ones w/ Mt St Helens 25th anniversary).

 

3-coin package (cache placement): Belken (Perth, Australia)

 

1-coin giveaway (keep or place):

- elmosmelmo (cache placement in Arizona)

- UOTrackers (personal collection in South Carolina)

- ZSandmann (personal collection in Colorado)

 

Nice geographical distribution, and none of the 'usual suspects' in the bunch. :antenna:

 

Have completed my entry in Damenace's very nice database, and the coins go out in the next couple days.

 

Cache on!

Well, I didn't name them after you, but I did use Grand Experiment in the names of them and mentioned you in the description. Hope that's good enough. :ninja:

 

And yes, I dropped them in a cache near my house before sending them off the Germany today. No way would I pass on an opportunity to rack up those miles on them!

 

 

Extras? No, I don't have no extras. :wub:

Ok I'm game.

 

I have the following to offer (one each) to those that need them:

 

Not Another Micro! (2005)

Kentucky Geocoin (2005)

Opticsboy (2005)

 

And I'm offering the following 3 to be placed in caches:

 

Alabama

North Carolina

Christmas 2005 ornament coin (Winter Wonderland)

 

*Note that I'm activating all 3 of the above, and I hope to have them go international. Since I haven't seen anyone saying theirs are going to South/Central America, how about it - GEOCACHERS headed to/in South/Central America - you want some coins to put in Caches?!?

K two of the below coins are spoken for by:

 

UOTrackers

Zsandman

 

So, I still have 1 available.

 

I'm still looking for someone in or going to central/south America willing to distribute coins into caches. If you can do this, please let me know. (I may be willing to toss in an extra coin for you to keep...)

 

For those of you still seeking clarification on how this works. The best explanation is this:

 

You get: 1 coin from one of us giving them away. (one you don't have already in your collection.)

 

You distribute:

 

3 coins to caches

3 coins to others who do the same thing.

 

So, you will need to aquire 6 other coins on your own to distribute if you haven't already. (We don't care what they are, but we want to help get the coins in the caches).

 

Kind Regards,

~Rose

This experiment has been really fun as I have made friends with the cachers I have met through the giveaway.

 

Great idea Jaybee :antenna:

Greetings all, you mentioned South Africa earlier in the posts and phoenix-rose stopped past the SA forum to enlighten us on the situation of you poor poor people that "Just Have toooo Many Coins". :antenna: :antenna:

 

There is a severe lack of coins down here in SA with the latest coin to be placed being a German GeoCoin. Most of us will be keen to accept coins to place in the wild wild SA. Just let us know. So who has coins left and is willing to post to SA?

 

Dont know if there are are too many collectors here, so you can be sure that your coins will make the rounds.

Will also be happy to distribute some coins for placement in South Africa. Afraid can't fork out for 6 and continue the pyramid though...Coins are just too expensive down here.

Alrighty, I'm game....I see 3 South Africa folks have posted here. I will send another Washington state coin to ONE of them for placement below the equator (since I have others going to Australia, I'm keeping the Southern Hemisphere in coins.... :antenna: ).

 

First one to email me gets da coin - include your address. :ninja:

 

Oh...and NONE of my coins are named after Go JayBee. :antenna:

Ok, I need to deliver my end of the bargain so let me see if I got this right. I received a really nice looking Addict coin today. So I need to send six out? One person gets three coins and three people get one coin?

I've sent my 3 to Go Jaybee and 1 Canine Coin.

Still need two more takers for a Canine coin (either Edition).

You can activate the 3 that are going to one person if you wish.

 

I activated mine and named them like this.

A few other participate named the coins like this too. It is up to you, I would think.

 

The coins you send 1 to 1 cacher are theirs to do with as they please so I did not activate those.

 

Hope that helps!

 

BTW -- If you need some to release your 3 coin package, I would do it for you done here in Georgia.

Ok, one more question than I will shut up. Can I send coins that I have already have activated but are sitting on my desk that I have failed to release or should they be new coins?

Share this post

They can be coins you already have, I think Damenace did that. I would not think you would have to go out and buy new or use unactivated coins for this. Using the ones you got is a good idea. I bought all new coins because we really don't have any extra coins.

Wow Damenace, I don't know what the regular GAA coin looks like but the one you sent me is g o r g e o u s.

 

I am glad you enjoy it :laughing: . Do you not have the regular GAA?

I have also found someone to distribute to Egypt, South Africa, Mexico, and Portugal. I may also have a couple going to Iraq for our troops there to discover (I emailed a few people stationed there). EDIT: WE HAVE 3 STATE COINS GOING TO IRAQ for our Service People Overseas!

OOHH,OOHH Egypt? PR, if you need an extra coin or two to send to Egypt please contact me, I would love to add a coin to your package.

WOW, I just looked up Egypt and there is only 34 caches. I was impressed, of the 34 caches listed there was 13 caches that have TB's listed in them. Can you imagine if the state you lived in had travel bugs in 38% of all caches?? PR, my offer still stands, let me know.
