Chris,

I love our coins, I'm always happy to get your designs, they are so amazing. But it was much more fun getting to talk to you for the couple minutes you could on the phone. Can't wait to see you at MWGB!

 

I received:

Fox and the Hound - Hounds Path Tag

Mountain Girl Path Tag

King of Cache AE Silver

Matching # Masters of Cache AE set

And I never remember it's name, the mesmorizing face guy!

Plus some fun whistles that Bella loves!

 

Thanks Chris

We mailed out our 4th of July mission and one of our summer missions on Saturday. Haven't heard that they've arrived yet, but they should have!

 

Still working on our second summer mission.

Got home and checked the mail. A box. Hmmm I wasn't expecting anything. I looked at the address and then smiled or maybe I should say smirked!!! :lol: I opened the box to find it full of red, white and blue! That little duck is pretty cute and maybe he can go to the Midwest Geobash with me. I received a LindsyChris smirk coin (now maybe I don't need that trade Lindsy! LOL) A Sydney Koala bear coin and pin. This one is funny because two weeks ago I was at an event and my raffle ticket came up to pick from the raffle table. I had my heart set on the Koala but the person 2 in front of me picked it!! I also received a Geochicks coin which I haven't seen before. Thanks so very much my not so secret mission persons--lindsychris!!! I loved them all...

Buuuuut, you forgot to mention that we put all the coins INTO the firecracker! That was my favorite part-I thought I was pretty creative! :anibad:

 

We wanted to get it out soon so you didn't think we forgot about your trade! If you still want the BN, we can still trade. AND, aside from the fact that I love the rubber duckies (all shapes and sizes!), I knew you were going to the MWGB, sooo it was perfect. I'm glad you didn't win the Koala!!!! We traded for that one since it was on your seeking list--that would have been a bummer to go from 0-2 in two weeks! ;)

You're right I left out the part that they were packed in the firecracker--maybe because I was laughing at the time!!! ;)

 

Also I was bummed about not getting the Koala especially because it was only 2 tickets in front of me. I guess it was fate!!!!

I went to go the mail. I got a package and some letters. Put them in the truck and back to work. Interesting....the package is addressed to me and is from me..... So I carefully ripped into my package. And I see chocolate, gram crackers, marshmallows, a pen, two expendable marshmallow sticks (very cool), and a yellow envelope. Opened it up to fine a Rangefinder and The Geocaching Zone coins. WOW. I will take pics later tonight. Now to start the investigation of who sent it...anyone from PA want to claim this???

Thank you very much!

Our Summer Solstice package arrived today. It was quite lumpy, and for the first time in participating in the missions, I waited patiently for 3 hours (when Chris got home) and I allowed him to open it. First, we pulled out the noncoin portion of our gift. Then he pulled out a coin (Scaw's geotag), and then another coin (Loggerhead Micro!!!), and then another coin...Jan and the Percy Boys (one of the very first coins we ever found in a cache), and then ANOTHER coin (Bubble Gum geojelly), and then one final coin (Geoswag Anniversary coin). WOW, WOW, WOW! Thank you so much Scaw!!!

Wow!!! Great things come in small packages. I found this waiting for me at the PO this morning when I went to mail my secret mission. I couldn’t wait till I got home to open it. So I sat in the car in the PO parking and tore into it. The first thing I did was put on the bracelet and wore it the rest of the day while I was in town. I wanted to hold the coins longer, but couldn’t see how I was going to manage that and drive too. The star now resides on top of my computer. My 4th of July Secret person, well not so secret, was very generous.

Received:

Brass Aucoima v2

BN Camp Explorer

Shinny gold Elchrich Elch GPS Guided Moose

Wooden Alpha romero Circle #176

Well the last couple days my mailbox has been jam packed! I received a rather large package from LindsyChris,which I thought must have been a trade we had made. But when I opened it I didn't find any Peeps (so I must have theirs already) instead I found some cool little flip flops (which Bella has pulled all apart B) ) A cute rubber ducky, which is now in her new pool, a squirt gun, a funky pair of glasses, some bubbles AND a Smirk coin and the Wahine I spy coin!!! Both coins I had been wanting. Thank you so much for the fun you gave us!

Looked out and saw a big box sitting on top of the mailbox at the street. Hmmm I said I will have to talk to the postmaster about this. I didn't remember ordering anything. It quickly became clear what it was when I read the return address which said Firecracker Lane, Starburst USA!!!

 

Upon opening the box I was met with red, white and blue!! I was overwhelmed!! Everything was individually wrapped so I had a bit of unwrapping in front of me. Here's what I found:

 

A July 4th decorated foam visor, a pot holder with a bee on it, some wildflower seeds, a large stamp of my avatar, and another stamp with a bee, a mad mooing cow (the dogs didn't like this one!! LOL), a certificate for Best Cacher!! AND earplugs for the firecracker noise!!!

 

Boy if that wasn't enough I also found in a July 4th decorated box, a Crowesfeat30 coin, The Great Rubber Duckie Escapade coin, The Seabecktribe copper personal coin, a 2005 Washington State coin and a Seabecktribe wooden nickel and pin!! None of which I had! They are all absolutely great coins...

 

Thank you not so secret mission cacher!!!!! You are so very generous that I am speechless (that doesn't happen too often!)
