. . . I think this one will be headed across the pond!!!

 

Don't worry about that little puddle to your east!

 

Send it across the big "Peaceful" one to your west! :rolleyes::blink:

When I was little my grandfather used to tell me stories of his time fishing off the great barrier reef, and living in a little town called Mackey. I've dreamt of visiting Australia all my life! Perhaps in sending a coin there it will take a little piece of me with it! At least a picture of my daughter will get to see it's beauty!

My log for UOTrackers Pay It Forward Mission Coin #2:

 

"Arrived safely in Australia!

Thank you so much UOTrackers – and you knew I wanted that coin that came with it, didn’t you! :P

And I know just what coin to send to an unsuspecting next recipient.

Now to find a local cache to dip the PIF into, add some pics and then it’ll be on its way with its new partner."

 

What more can I say, but thanks again! :anibad:

Coin #1 is in Canada. The person has received it (I was almost worried) and sent it on to the next person. But that person is a mystery! :P:anibad:

 

Ok, I sent it with a AE Hitchhiker to Macha, what did you get and send?!

 

I should have asked for pictures with the PIF and it's new buddy coin at each stop!

I did take a picture with the PIF coin and goodies, I just have not gotten them off the camera yet. :huh:

EDIT: I just got it off the camera and uploaded it to our log. It includes a picture of the coin we send with the package. :huh:

 

I got a 2006 Not Another Micro. :D :D I gave it to the girls for their new budding collection! :D :D

I assume you mean this is to be done by the recipient of the buddy coin, otherwise it may spoil the surprise. :huh:

 

And I've already sent the package, so I can't have a picture of them together :huh: but I did take a picture of the PIF and could add one of what you sent me. :D

What a surprise to find the UOTrackers Pay It Forward coin in our mailbox. :D

Now that Mrs. Pirate has calmed down a bit she is able to post this message.

Being more "lurkers" than "posters" in the forums we hadn't even communticated our desire to be involved in this wonderful project. Thanks so much for Graylling for passing up the extra points for mailing it to another country and for passing it on to us. :)

We know exactly who we are going to send it to and will get it off in Mondays mail.

This on is now in my hands in the Netherlands. I must order now a not activated coin. When I received a new coin it will travel further.

I still have to tell you all how this coin came to Europe.

 

Well, that's actualy very simpel. OUTrackers sended the coin to us along with an beautifull unactivated geocoin and a logbook with an cute picture of Bella on it. I admired the 'Pay it forward' coin for a few seconds. Then our youngest team took over and arrested the coin. He liked it so much. We wants to hold the coin forever. We weren't allowed to get the coin back. But he did showed the geocoin to his friend who DO were allowed to hold the coin (as you can see on the picture).

It took us an couple of days to retrieve the coin and send it along to team Professor X. Team Professor X gave the coin to de Roode Loper.

 

this was our story. Thanks to OUtrackers and everyone who made this possible.

 

tot cache,

team Wij Drie :(

...and we got this very coin from The Roode Loper. They are friends whom we met while geocaching.

Yesterday we attended the first mega event in Europe, this one, where we had a wonderfull day.

Soon we will make a picture and post it in the log. We now will virtually log it in the cache which is in our front yard.

I received a package this week from Islander1988 containing the Pay It Forward Mission Coin and an islander1988 XLE personal coin. :P

 

Today, I took the coin caching with me so that I could dip it into a cache. I took some pics. Cache GCXWTM Marco35 #78 - Lac de Mai.

 

In the next few days, I'll be sending to coin on it's way to the next person. :ph34r:

 

Thank you so much for this fun project. Cheers to you all. :D

We had a big surprise today when we received one of these Pay It Forward geocoins from Big JohnP. Thank you very much Big John for thinking of us and for passing it along to us. Included with the PIF coin was a Last Cache of the Day Geocoin club coin. :anicute::unsure: Thanks! We will post some photos very shortly. Then we will be sending it along to a new recipient.

Thanks Jen for coming up with this great way to share the PIF geocoins. :laughing:

Sorry sorry sorry...

:rolleyes:

Due to personal circumstances we (= Tinkerteam) forgot all about this coin and kept it far too long...

We got a message from someone to whom we would send it but I can not find this message again...

So we will try to make it up. Anyone who would like to receive this coin?

Please send us a mail: beantsje@hotmail.com and we wil send it off.

How do we participate? We love that belief system...

I think the best ways are to 1. Post in here that you want it, like you did and 2 try contacting someone who has one in their possession. I've linked each coin in the above post so you can check to see who has it, one of them looks like its been stagnant for a couple months now. Good luck! This has been loads of fun for me!
