Geo_Leprechaun

Recommended Posts

I GOT IT!!!!!

 

When I got the notification that the Geo_Leprechaun had hit a cache in my area - GCGT0N - "Treasure on Tate Island" - I was out in a flash, thankfully with my mountain bike still on the bike carrier on my car from yesterday evening's bike ride. I left in too much of a flash, apparently, because I forgot to get and load my GPSr with the cache coordinates! :D:o I zoomed back, got it and was off again, speeding the whole way down there.

 

I got to the Katy Trail parking area nearest to the cache...no cars there...good! I sped off on my bike...I covered that mile-long journey so fast I was all sweaty and gasping for breath. When I reached the passage to the island it was partially covered by the Missouri River. Thankfully it was just barely over the passage as I cautiously waded through the short stretch to the island.

 

I found the cache and opened it quickly, almost blinded by the gleam of GOLD!!! The coin was still there! Trembling, I reached in and there it was...all mine...#40...so beautiful! I quickly traded the coin for an unactivated geocoin, took a couple pictures of it and crossed back to the mainland.

 

I was so excited the trek back on the bike seemed to take only a moment. I loaded the bike up and headed home, sweaty, stinking and delighted!

 

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, Geo_Leprechaun!!!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D

 

Here I am, at the edge of the island, with the mainland in the background:

Almost looks like the gold is glowing in the light of the Rainbow.

I'd never had a camera fog up like that in the summer before, but it was in the mid 90s and close to 100% humidity outside due to the rain, and the camera was sitting inside in mid 70s temp with very low humidity, at first I thought my lens was dirty, but after just a minute or two outside and it was totally fogged. I did crop my fingers out of the pic though. Thanks for the comments. I recently got a photo editing program and was thinking about playing with some coins, but with this one I didn't have to. Awesome coin, Thanks again GL. :)

WOO HOOO!!! We have been following the travels of the elusive Geo_Leprechaun. We were heading out to replace one of the stages on our multi, and saw the Geo_Leprechaun had visited 2 caches in the same park we were heading to! We crossed our fingers, and made the 30 minute trip in 20 minutes! LOL!! We decided to check the closest cache first, hoping the coin was still there. Guess the Luck of the Irish was with us, because when we opened the cache, there it was, shining in the sunlight in all it's glory! #47! Now we have to watch to see who gets the other one! LOL!! THANKS Geo_Leprechaun! REALLY cute coin! :D We propped the coin in a tree to take the picture, so we didn't give away the final stage of the multi it was in! (GCKJ15)

I was fortunate enough to find one of these lucky Irish Leprechaun Pot of Gold geocoins in a local cache. Mine is number 048. Since I had this lucky coin with me today I decided to test it and see just how lucky it was by going skydiving with it at the dropzone in Lumberton, Mississippi. I may have used up some of the coin's luck, but the skydive was a lot of fun. It was way too hot and the clouds and rain were rolling in so we just made one jump.

 

Mr. Geo_Leprechaun... Just how much luck is packed into one of these coins? How many skydives is it good for?

 

Here are some pictures.

Back on the ground, safe and sound, after a skydive from 14,000 feet.

Look at the glitter in the shamrock sparkle!

Well, it's a bit too far from home for me to go out and get it tonight. D'ya suppose it will stick around for another few months until I can get enough time off of work to drive the 800 + miles to get to the cache? <_<:huh: Oh, well, I will just have to sit back and hope that Geo_Leprechaun makes another trip to the St. Louis area. Come back soon, Geo_Leprechaun! :blink: We have lots of nice caches to hide your gold in here!

Talking about a coin that fits me... I'm just hoping the leprechaun decides to visit a couple caches in Tennessee one day. Lil Lucky Clover and The Shamrock definitely need to be in a mad dash for one these AWESOME coins.

 

We'll keep our fingers crossed!

Looks like he hit Texas today!

 

Now if he'd make his way up the the Great Northwest, where I'm sure all the greenery would be appealing to a Geo_Leprechaun!

Yea he did hit Texas!

 

He dropped them in a couple of puzzles, one I had already found. The other was over in Rockwall, which is all the way across the city. I knew I was going to an event there today, so I was just hoping it would still be there when I got there!

 

Yippee!!!!! - I am the proud owner of #004!!!!

 

Thanks Geo-Lep - I love it!!!!

Michigan would make a very nice stop. I know of some great Irish bands here! I myself am not much into beer but there is an open offer of Guinness stout too! If that isn't enough there is always the Notre Dame game vs Michigan on Sept 15th to bribe you too!!

So I have a question for all you Geo_Leprechaun experts out there. I found my pot of gold last summer here in Colorado. I didn't know what it was at the time, but I kept it because it looked cool. The Leprechaun has not visited the cache where I found the coin, so someone else must have found it somewhere else and traded it. Lucky me! Here is the interesting thing. My pot of gold does not have a number on the handle like the one I see in the photos on this thread. Has anyone else seen this before?
