2007 RED JEEP THREAD, LOOK HERE FIRST

Recommended Posts

Only problem is that it's unactivated and they didn't send me the activation code!

 

Same here.

Probably won't be activated until the 1st

That would be my guess also, didn't it say somewhere the the contest starts sometime in JULY ?

Please check and make sure these are not already activated like the Unite For Diabetes TB's were. If you can enter the number and the page comes up for the bug, you just need to "grab" it. If it comes up "unactivated" please send me a PM and I will find out what it is and post it here.

 

PM Sent.

Glad to see it's not just me. Has anyone gotten one yet that is activated?

Hey Pete! Try it again, looks like they're activated now. At least mine is.

Folks in the other RJTB thread in Geocaching Topics have indicated that they were not activated as of this morning but subsequently have been activated as of this afternoon.

If we got our request in before the "cutoff" message, is it safe to assume we got in "under the wire" and will get one?

NOW HEAR THIS! FYI, PASS IT ON!

 

The RED JEEP TBs are already activated. You are the starting point. You just need to log a 'grab' and then post a note on the cache page and log a drop, using the drop down menu at the bottom of the cache log entry page. Do not go to the activation page, look up the bug like any other TB and grab it.

(Link to how to log a travel bug instructions if needed).

 

Thank you for moving this Travel Bug!

Okay, I just got mine. Woo hoo! :D . So, this being my first time, I need to ask a stupid question. Are we suppose to place these before July 1st or on July 1st (or does it matter)?

So I got my jeep in the mail today--no instructions or anything...the contest says it starts July 1st. Should I hold onto it until then or should I plant it now? I've never done the jeep thing so should I take a picture with it?? Will "grabbing" it count as a find? Anyone know what to do or should I just hang out and wait? BTW This little red jeep will be placed somewhere in West Texas.....

Yes, grabbing it will count as a find. For details about taking pictures and entering the contest check here: http://jeep.geocaching.com/

 

If you just want to pass the jeep along I don't see why you can't place the jeep into a cache right now.

I like the other thread. Someone hopes they get one to place in there cache. Lets see they have had a yellow since 12/8/05, a white since 6/26/06, a green since 7/29/06. Sure, you need a red one to complete your collection to put in your cache.

Got mine today and it's already activated. I found out info when I plugged in the tracking code in the travel bug tracking area.

If you don't plan on participating in the contest there's no reason to wait to drop it off.

And the one I got to pass on has smooth tire tread exept on the outer edge's. And there all the same on all four tire's so I don't know what all the different tire pattern talk was about unless I am missing something here.

Check out this link. That's what folks were referring to (not the actual jeeps themselves).

you were to print the instruction out.see below

To enter the contest, they've always had people post photos. You may hold onto the Jeep until the contest rules are posted, telling you the first goal of the contest, there has always been one "theme" a month. After that, take photos you think will fit the theme, and move it along. Take lots of photos if you want, but you should release the bug to another cache in a timely manner.

 

I asked Groundspeak, and the Jeeps are already activated, you only need to "grab it from another location" to put it into your possession. That goes in your stats as a find. If anyone needs the instructions on how to log a TB, they are pinned at the top of the TB forum threads list.

I got a RED Jeep in the mail today! Yes, it's as ugly as it looks in the pictures.

 

Only problem is that it's unactivated and they didn't send me the activation code!

 

Now what do I do? <_<

 

Ditto. Received one today as well w/ no activation code nor any instructions on where to find it. If you find out, please let us know.

 

Okay...... it looks like they waited until later this afternoon to activate the TBs. I tried again and was finally able to 'grab it'. So, "Entiat River (WA)" Red Jeep Travel Bug is currently parked in Missoula, Montana and will be placed in a nearby cache sometime after July 1st. :o

Thanks. I just received my Jeep with the same conditions as the others. Tried to activate, but didn't have the code. You were right--it's already activated. Good, knowledgeable advice. Thanks

All the Jeeps from years past and I assume this year as well, are listed as being owned by Chrysler/Jeep.

You only get credit for your caching account as the first to place in a cache.

Checked the website last night, got the message "Sorry all claimed". I hope the people who got or will get within the next week decide to share with the rest of us. I've never even seen a green one in an actual cache.

The best chance of getting the icon is to discover one at an event.

RE: RJTB Distribution

 

Were there distribution guidelines regarding Red Jeep TB’s, i.e., a limit to each users or were users permitted to receive more than one RJTB?

Share this post


Link to post

Something else funny. Others were unhappy that RJTB were not available outside the contiguous USA. I see on the first page alone, 13 of the first 20 RJTBs listed, are named for locations in Alaska.

 

How’s that for a backhand from JEEP and/or GC.com

I think there was something about possibly verifying if people released them per agreement but there certainly wasn't an option to request more than one.

 

Can people submit a request more than once using the same user name? Don't know, didn't try it.

And only 17 of the next twenty are AK locations.

 

Boy, JEEP and/or GC.com are beating up Alaska like a Redheaded Stepchild.

Haaaaaaa, my curiosity got the best of me and I looked at the third page of listings. Wuz up JEEP and/or GC.com? Only 11 of the third page has Alaska locations.

 

If I were Gov. Sarah Palin, I think I would petition congress to secede from the Union.
