I have seen in one of these mission threads that people have no idea who their mission person is despite the fact that it came from out of the country. How do you hide who you are when you have to fill out a customs form with your name and address? Also the last time I did one out of the country I had to have a persons name (ie not Santa Claus) in the return address and couldn't use the person's own address

1. Participating: (11/15/2007)

2. Received Name: Yes!

3. Mission Complete: Still working on it

4. Santa Arrives: Yes! (11/27/07) Wow! That was fast!

 

First, let me say that I hope a picture comes through because I have NEVER done this before! :mad:

 

To my dear Secret Santa,

 

You may have thought it was going to be a secret, but I know exactly who you are! You are a wonderfully kind and generous person-very intuitive and quite on the ball! I actually received my Secret Santa package on Tuesday, but did not have any time to post until now.

 

You sent me some wonderful geocoins-none of which I have! How in the world did you do that? Oh that's right, you are Santa, so you would know! :mad:

 

I love all of the awesome geocoins you sent me. You did a great job in "reading my mind!" Thank you so very much! I really appreciate your generosity.

 

I hope the picture I took turned out well enough to view and I hope I did everything correctly so the picture will come though. I want everyone to see the goodies Santa brought me! :laughing:

 

:DYIS :D

If I sent a package to you and only had my real name on it, not my geocaching ID, would you know who it was from? :laughing:

How many coins have you bought? How about trades? I'm guessing your name can be found if one wanted to! :laughing:

 

But I agree, unless you really wanted to know, it would be a "mystery"! :mad:

If the postmark said Minnesota it could be narrowed down to only a few people......Of course there are those who send the package to someone else to mail for them so the postmark isn't from their local post office <_< I also have used my dog's name in the past but that didn't work as I used the real address and the person who I was sending too also was the one sending the mission to me. LOL

The Spinner is the one we wanted (asked for) and, to be honest, we didn't expect to receive it!! We love every one of them and couldn't have asked for a better Secret Santa gift....our Secret Santa ROCKS!

Great coins, and the kids absolutely LOVE the little wooden figures! Caitlyn has claimed the frog, in particular, Micke (my big kid) loves the duck, I love the dragonfly, and Hanna is at her grandmother's tonight, but I know she'll probably claim the alligator or the fishie :D

 

Now... if I could just get Caitlyn to quit calling the frog "fok!!!" B)B)B)

 

Thank you, Sandy Claws and... well, you know who you are!

 

Naomi and family! B)

Guess what,

 

someone will receive a package from Portugal and woul'd get a great trouble finding who amongst the two of us who enter this Secret Geoocin Santa is his secret friend B):lol:B)

 

It's a 50/50 winning bet B)

This might be a dumb question but here goes. Would it bother you as the receiver from your secret santa to get a personal coin that would pretty much give away who your santa is or would you rather not know who the sender is? I kind of wanted to send one of my Geojelly3 coins but that would kind of be obvious. Your thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.

OK....since I am being nudged to open my SS2 mission package....I will!

 

Inside my package is:

 

2 pins....Alaska 2007 "you are the cache" pin and "cacher needs Maintenance" pin!

 

Mt McKinley Seven Summits coin 2005

Europe EU coin #73

Alaska "You are the cache" micro

Washington 2005 (has Mt St Helens on the front)...very nice coin, I like the "3D" effect of the picture...SWEET!

 

THANK-YOU my SS from Anchorage!! Some really nice coins to add to my collection!! Very nice indeed!! I'll try to get a picture and post it here.... Wow, such a great package indeed!! Really above and beyond!!

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR all!! and a big THANK-YOU SS!! love it! I am now hooked on these missions!

 

donorgirl....do what makes you happy, I'm SURE your SS2 recipient will enjoy whatever you send!! Also, unless they have made a trade already, those Geojellies are limited and possibly HTF? If you don't want to send it in their mission, I suppose you could send it to me...I'll take care of it for you! :lol:

I really like the personal coins.

 

I think the :lol: missions should be fun and show a little bit of personality of the person who sent them, as well as a little creativity, too... what better way to do that than to include a personal coin if you have one :lol:

To me it is more about the exchange versus being annonymous. HHHHMMMMM is that why I use a different return address :lol: ?

 

I can't win for losing, they will know who it came from when they receive the package, that Lackey is a dead giveaway!!!

Yeah, that's a giveaway all right, you're sure to be known! BUT, I think the greatness of the gift will help to make up for knowing who sent it! :lol:
