The Geocoin Secret Agent


Recommended Posts

sheesh...I was trying to figure it out with the old numbers...

 

Well no worries, so was I. :D

LOL! I was using the old numbers too. Was really bugging me to to figure out how Ble68 got the answer from those numbers. I was going to look at it again this morning. Makes sense now! :angry:

Congratulations to all new Secret Agents!!! It was fun to read the missions that I missed during my holidays! B)

 

I have to tell a story, too... :D

 

I am not sure if I did the right thing, but I opened the little package that I received the day before my holidays.... the one that had written "Happy Birthday" on it (and nothing more). I am still not sure if this was for my real birthday (which is in September :D ) or for my "Geocacher Birthday" which was two weeks ago (a few days before I received the mysterious bubble mailer).

 

So today when I came back from my holidays I was just too curious to wait any longer. I had a few clues who sent this surprise when I inspected the mailer carefully, although there was no real hint on it :D And when I opened the package I knew that I was right :D:D

 

Inside I found a silver GSA V2 coin :D:D and two non-trackable coins from my wantlist :D

 

I still can't believe it! Thanks so much, GSA!!!! :D:D:D I hope I did the right thing with opening the package yet... :D

 

Thank you again!!! :huh::):D

Geocoin Secret Agent - I hope all is well with you, I am standing by for mission #9, it was due yesterday, I hope you haven't been taken prisoner.

 

Agents be sure to check in on the hour every hour, GSA may be needing our assistance.

 

Sorry about the delay. The KGB had me on the run for a short bit.

 

MISSION # 9: This mission requires the use of a digital camera. Please post here (The first 3 cachers to post win). Post a picture of yourself (tomorrow - July 8 2008) in a public place, with muggles around, holding a sign that announces you are a geocacher. The sign MUST have the date 7-8-08 on it to be a valid mission photo. Good luck Agents. Remember, the first 3 posted here are the winners of a V2 GSA geocoin.

"Yes, These can be taken just after midnight, however remember the criteria"

I will personally monitor this mission and disqualify any posts that do not meet the criteria.

 

EDIT: Those who have already completed a mission please do not compete.

If someone feels they need to cheat, let them. However if found out, the coin will be locked.

How's that for fair?

Approximately how much muggles is enough to qualify as a public place?

 

Obviously with the number of emails this is confusing some. MODIFIED MISSION: I will conduct multiple missions with this same objective listed above however I will break it down to time zones:

 

MISSION 9 A: This mission is the same as MISSION # 9 listed above. It will be limited to cachers in the Pacific and Mountain Time Zones. Since there will be multiple missions I will only send out one V2 per sub-mission. This mission starts tonight at midnight Mountain Time. tomorrow I will start Mission 9 B.

Do conjoined siamese twins count singly or doubly? :(

 

I think you also need to rule out "muggles" that are staged friends of the poster, as compared with honest muggles found in public spaces such as malls, restaurants, etc.

Very nice touch Mr. Flye. Correct, follow Mr. Flye's advice.

It took a while to convince my dad to go out to a supermarket that is nearly across the street from where we live and take a picture of me there at 11 pm Mountain Time but I finally did. When I got there I was surprised to see that there were not too little people less than an hour before closing time. While taking the picture a few people eyed me and my sign probably thinking that I was a little crazy. Oh well... anything for a GSA coin!

Oh, THAT's Good :) , If I were a 2nd edition agent, I'd definitely select You as my co agent! Wow, and it is only midnight Plus 29 minutes! It is dark where I am from No markets nearby, just my animals and Me in my jammies.

 

Hey, You are that young cacher who designed a coin, aren't you :(

Well I forgot to write the date on the sign, and the pics aren't me ( I hate getting photographed). However the first photo is of my wife (momiji) and daughter (kusakids) (with a dog (Geo!)) getting booted out of starbucks (she was trying to lock the door). The second photo is of my daughter (and the dog) taken while waiting. The second was taken a bit before midnight, the first was taken at midnight.

OK, now this is really getting confusing, now that I go back and reread all of the posts about this mission. We didn't even get off work until midnight Mountain time, and the pictures were taken at midight Pacific time, which is 3am our time, and there aren't many muggles out at 3am our time, so Capt Howdy's and my photos probably don't even count now do they?

I was hoping someone would post of a pic of them in a biker bar type place holding up the sign. Those would be some funny looks. You might not make it out alive though.

 

That would be fun...I was going to go down to our world famous Calgary Stampede (The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth) for the fireworks at midnight but I was worried about all those cowboys kickin' the %^$# outta me (plus it's way past my bedtime)

I selected 2 photographs to award a V2 coin. I did notice there was photos from the Central Time Zone and one from the Eastern Time Zone. Not yet agents to be, your turn is coming soon.

 

The winners have been notified via email and may post here if they wish.

 

MISSION 9 B: This mission is open ONLY to those cacher in the CENTRAL TIME ZONE. One post per caching family please. Please keep your photographs limited to no larger than 640 x 640 pixels.

 

Starting now and ending midnight tonight CST. Post a picture of yourself in a public place with at least 2 non-cachers in the photograph. Hold a sign that indicates you are a geocacher with today's date. The photograph has to be clear enough to read the information on the sign. A small group of agents will review the photos and select a winner. The criteria is simple: Announce you are a cacher and be creative. The more outragous the photo the better your chances. To the selected winner: A V2 trackable GSA coin.

 

Please no previous winners.

 

This is the mission if you choose to accept it.

Woohoo! I have finally been able to win a GSA mission! Now I'll be frantically checking my mailbox for the coin. Thanks GSA!

 

Congratulations my friend!!!!!! :P Wellcome to the agent family!!! :ph34r:

I received a message earlier informing me that I would be receiving a V2 coin. I wish now that I had a video camera ready :ph34r: , as seeing Momiji's happy dance when I told her expressed our excitement quite well :P . Thank You Geocoin Secret Agent.

We (center 2) stopped a couple of guys coming out of the local YMCA. When they saw the sign, they told us they knew what geocaching was. The one guy even called a friend and asked if he could borrow his GPS to find some "treasure", then they were off..........
