The Geo-Secret Agent

The Geocoin Secret Agent

Recommended Posts

Bad news from wannabeagent Tschakko. As it looks like, I won´t be able to fullfill this mission :rolleyes:

There is too much going on around here right now. The only places that I would have had the chance to get a picture take were a hospital or several retirement centers, and I am not gonna do that.

I won´t be able to access the internet for about a week at least, so the missions will have to run without me :rolleyes:

 

But as it looks like the GSA already called the Americans for help, so you will do without me just as fine :sunsure:

 

Keep posting pictures, I will enjoy them when I get a chance :blink:

Congratulations to all the new SA's :sad:

 

 

Would still love an opportunity at a V2 or V3 GSA coin :sad:

 

I would love one too. I still have my V1 coin but it is lonely. :huh:

 

Then go ahead and enter into this mission. This mission obviously needs to be opened up to more. OPEN now to anyone except former mission winners.

 

SO, Maybe I can get to pose with the muggles at work, again. Hopefully you'll wait until 2300 PDT :huh:

My dear GSA! :sad:

 

Since I am a winner of a mission already, so I have a V2, I can not participate! Well, I shall post 2 pictures showing...under cover ancient agents! :huh:

 

picture00051.jpg

 

picture00043.jpg

 

The second photo is showing a high rank agent! :sad:

 

These are from the area I work! they are in a place that you can take photos!

 

As you can see...there are no faces! Strange? Well.....I do not think so!

 

Here is the story! (I hope I have your permision GSA)

 

In ancient Greece, they used to make statues complete, but Romans started massive production of statues, without heads or without faces!

 

By that way, they were putting the head or the face they wanted each time! when a person (emperor, general...) was famous, they used to put a head or just a face of him on the statue, but when the guy was not famous anymore, they were just taking the head off and where putting a new one, from someone else who was famous!

It is said that from that, the motto "took his head off" was made! I do not know if it is true, but... :huh:

 

The same thing was happening with the face, like the statues in the photos! clever thing, but...not so pretty to see many statues axactly the same except from the head! the ancient greek beauty was gone!

 

Anyway.... These statues look like secret agents!!! :D

Mission complete!

 

We thought we'd complete our mission while we were out and about today. I made up a sign, hopped in the car and down the road I figured out I left the sign at home. I came back home and got the sign. We hit the first place, snapped the picture and ducked around to the next isle, purchased our items, and left for site number two. Got to site number two and discovered my agent recruit (aka daughter #1) threw my sign away at the last site -- back to agent school for her. She thought we were done with the mission. So, all we got was the one shot. She only took one pic at site one. Thank goodness it was a good one.

Thanks GSA for the mission! We had a lot of fun doing this. Looking forward to another one.

Oh Man! We're leaving for a camping trip tomorrow, which usually means lots of caching, but we have an event on sunday that we want to make our 1000th find, so no caching for us until then :lol:

 

 

Awesome cointest though! Get those coins out there people!

Geez...wish this one was last week when I activated over 30 coins and sent them all overseas to start their journeys. Perhaps I can try to track down a couple more to put out locally.

 

Great mission GSA!!!

In the Pacific Northwest, all agents (or agent wanna-bees) are required to wear appropriate green garb made of Gortex, ideal for activating and dropping geocoins!

I will check my supplies and get on it. I was trying to save coins for GeoCoinFest but I doubt anyone will trade away their GSA coin so I might as well try this way!

Yeah, My residents simply loved Nesha 331 :D ( later, I let her sit at the piano - even though she didn't play much)

 

Back on topic . . . I wonder if I can get my butt in gear enough to activate and turn some coins loose ;)

Hello GSA! :laughing:

 

I am sure there are plenty who would like to have at least one of your beautiful coins, and win one or more missions!

 

Unfortunatelly I can not try with this mission. :-( I do not have a lot of trackable coins to release, and some I really afraid to release them! I have to be honest!

 

Also, there are only 2 caches close to the city of Rhodes that you can actually drop coins, and the others are far away! Just because of the strange working hours I have and my brother in law has (we are a team of 3 memebers, all under my codename! Me, my sister and my brother in law, who has the GPS and he is the driver!), it is almost imposible to visit caches far away from me! And according to the big fire we have the last 2 days on the island and even villages are evacuating....I can not go to many places! :anitongue:

 

In case someone visited Rhodes, The forests in Agios Isidoros, Profylia, Laerma, Lardos... are on fire! The winds are very strong and there is even a possibility that the village Askleipio and Apollona will be in danger too! if you see in a map of Rhodes, you will realise how big the fire is! A big part of the middle and the southern part of the island is on fire! :-(

Laerma village is evacuated..... it is... :-(

 

After the huge earthquacke, now we have a huge fire.... :-(

 

I am sorry my friend! I hope you understand!

I really wish I could do more! Maybe in an other mission that even previous winners can participate.... :ph34r: I hope you understand!

I accepted the mission with hope I activated three coins and in camo I left the patch out into the world bravely, in stelth the coins have been dropped (2 in GC1C7ET) I gave all I Had but when I look at what a great Job Agent E&Cplus3 has done I must only hang my head in shame. Agent failed.

No worries, Agent BrierPatch! 3 coins on the spur of the moment is great! Truth is, I've been planning to do this for more than a month. It took this mission to get my Secret Agent butt in gear and actually do it!

 

It was also a great excuse to go out and do 6 new caches. :anitongue:

OK, this mission will run it's course and then there will be one more with an extended period of time.

 

I will start the new release mission after this one ends. There may be a few different variables on the new mission so please read before you act.

 

The new mission will also be coin activating and dropping related. Stay Tuned.

Agent Wanna-B V2 with final mission report:

 

Mission was complete on schedule (per original instructions) at about 1230 hrs PDT, with the exception of posting the number of coins activated and dropped.

 

A total of 32 trackable geocoins, each with a different icon, were activated on Tuesday, July 22. Additionally, each was drilled, and some sort of tag or toy was added with metal split rings or cable key fobs. Each was given a mission (of sorts), most being very similar.

 

On Wednesday, July 23, they were released to two travel bug caches, the first being:

 

Cummings Lake T-Bug Stop (GCNVJQ) received:

  1. SA Cache A Day Geocoin
  2. SA Curse of the Pirates Treasure Geocoin
  3. SA Generic Geocoin
  4. SA Red Cross Geocoin
  5. SA Team S&B Geocoin

The remaining 27 geocoins were released to Stargate P47122 TB Cache (GCV49Z) with specific instructions to travel to the following countries through the stargate:

 

Australia

  1. SA 2007 California Micro Geocoin
  2. SA 2007 Evil Micro Geocoin
  3. SA American Cacher Geocoin
  4. SA HAM Radio Geocoin
  5. SA Hawai`i Micro Geocoin
  6. SA Loved This Cache Geocoin
  7. SA Magellan Armed Squad Geocoin
  8. SA Mailbox Geocoin
  9. SA Night Racer Geocoin
  10. SA Purple Haze Cacher Geocoin
  11. SA WSGA Puget Sound Geocoin

Japan

  1. SA Australia 2007 Geocoin
  2. SA Live to Cache Geocoin
  3. SA Luminous Energy Geocoin
  4. SA Newfoundland Geocoin
  5. SA NOLEFAN9399 Geocoin

South Africa

  1. SA FTF Midnight Cacher Geocoin
  2. SA Grey Owl's Beaver Lodge Geocoin
  3. SA I Love Geocaching Geocoin
  4. SA Pirate Treasure Geocoin
  5. SA Triple Dragon Geocoin

Switzerland

  1. SA Caching in the Holidays Geocoin
  2. SA Dawn of the Faeries Geocoin
  3. SA Hunt Geocoin
  4. SA Seize the Day Geocoin
  5. SA Symbology Geocoin
  6. SA Team Jsam Geocoin

I was accompanied by Junior Agent Wanna-B Barkman, who was invaluable as he assisted by concealing the bag of coins in his sling, and by keeping a lookout for wayward muggles. Unfortunately, I was forced to employ a somnolence spray on one muggle who insisted on parking too close to the Gate. Fortunately, he remained unaware of our mission, and awoke and drove off a few minutes later.

 

2697196244_b976013a65.jpg

(Above) Unfortunate muggle.

 

Final Mission status:

  1. Activate coins -- Check!
  2. Drop in cache(s) 10+ miles from home -- Check!
  3. Post number of coins activated and dropped -- Check!

In the final analysis, mission accomplished, awaiting further instructions.

The coin release missions are a great idea, but to be honest, I have lost the last two coins that I released right out of the first cache :laughing: I love to have my coins released and let them travel, but I cannot afford sponsoring someones collection with my coins right now. I have decided not to release any coins until one of them reappears... sad, but true :laughing: Even more as I already have some coins that I wanted to release soon, they are already activated and were waiting in my caching bag for the right moment. They will stay there a little bit longer now :laughing:

 

Thanks again GSA for your generosity and for this missions, it is always fun to read, even if I don't play!
