+kdv Posted February 28, 2008 Share Posted February 28, 2008 (edited) We are all protecting our coin collections with our life, but why not try and live a tiny little bit more dangerously? Here's my idea: Every person that partipates should be prepared to release a surprise coin in a nearby cache, after having it adopted by the person that has been assigned to them. To keep the coin really a surpirse, it would be nice to rename it to XXX's surprise coin before sending out the adoption request. Here's how it works: - Before March 1, send a mail to me (email@example.com) indicating that you want to participate, indicating also what cache in your area should be the destination for the coin you'll be surprised with. - On March 1 you will receive the nick of the person assigned to you and the destination of the coin you're going to surprise them with. - Rename the coin to XXX's Surprise Coin and set up a mission for the coin to reach it's destination. - Send out an adoption request for the coin to the person assigned to you. - Drop the coin in a nearby cache (and put it on your watchlist if you like!) If people want to participate after March 1, they can go ahead and let me know. I'll just set up another batch. Track your progress here, e.g following this scheme: 1. Participating 2. Nick/destination received 3. Outgoing coin released 4. Incoming coin picked up. I know it's a risky venture and I guess in the end not everyone will even get to see their coin, but if you want to risk it, go ahead and sign up for it. Let's try and make coins travel every now and then Katja Edited to add: Grr, I hate it when I make typos in topic names that I can't even fix Edited February 28, 2008 by kdv Quote Link to comment
