Don't know why you wouldn't. You have way more ISQ finds than I do.

There was a question of whether I was going to receive it during a lunch visit or through the mail. I emailed my mailing address and haven't had a lunch date yet, so I guess my coin is in limbo. Hope to see Lead Dog soon but I am not worried about receiving the coin.

There is no question. These coins are the gift of *The Shadow*, who is not me, :D as most of you probably know by now. I am merely his humble agent. I'm sure if you contact him he may be willing to have lunch with you, but you'd have to be blindfolded probably. His power to cloud mens' minds so they cannot see him sometimes doesn't work in the summer heat...and he must preserve his crime fighting alter ego identity. :D

Genius Loci is a nationally famous Geocacher from the Chicago area that we had the great privilege of caching with once. He has nearly 8,000 finds and and was one of the creators of the 99 BoB caches. He is some number of years or so behind on his online logs, but when they hit they are worth the wait. Here's one of his latest, just arrived this week:

Genius Loci found Indiana Spirit Quest # 223: TPTB (Traditional Cache) at 3/31/2006

 

Log Date: 3/31/2006

After literally hundreds and hundreds of ISQ (and other cemetery cache) finds, I suppose I should have been expecting it. Never-the-less, when it finally happened, I was ill prepared.

 

I'd arrived, many miles and many hours from home, after spending some days on a cache hunting quest. Though it wasn't raining, the sky was dark grey and a peal of thunder rolled across the distant, solemn landscape as I opened the car door and commenced my search for the cache hidden here.

 

Without ado, I located the stash, and had soon finished my business with it. Then (as is often my wont) I began a slow journey back to the vehicle, reading the old stone markers in passing. The epitaphs, the phrases, the names; all are interesting, and many strike a chord of pity, sorrow, or other varied emotion as they catch the eye.

 

Yet never before had one hit so close to home; so horribly close that my very heart shuddered. For suddenly, I stood face to face with a name inscribed upon a lonely stone... a name none other than my own!

 

Perhaps I would not have been so shocked were my surname more common. But for once, I did not linger to ponder the fate of the unique individual buried here, now passed irrevocably beyond the realm of human knowledge. Intuitively, I knew there was but one course of action I must now take. With a silent appeal to the heavens, I turned my back, returned to my vehicle, and set my sights on home. No more caches would I seek on this journey!

 

Heed now my words, ye seekers of ISQ caches! In fair weather or foul, search out the spirits of ages past, and count them, one by one, upon the slate that marks the days of your own life. But beware that fateful day when you come at last, face to face with the ultimate!

 

You may call me superstitious, a coward, or even a fool. But who among us can remain unmoved when confronted by the tomb with our own name graven upon it?

 

Thanks for the cache... - Genius Loci ('the Guardian Spirit of a Place')

They're not that different from you, are they? Same haircuts. Full of hormones, just like you. Invincible, just like you feel. The world is their oyster. They believe they're destined for great things, just like many of you, their eyes are full of hope, just like you. Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they were capable? Because, you see gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils. But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen, you hear it? - - Carpe - - hear it? - - Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary.

good horses and beautiful

women, and when I die I hope

they tan this old hide of mine

and make it into a ladies riding

saddle, so I can rest in peace

between the two things I love

Thank you, Shadow. My coin came today and it is awesome! I will treasure it. Thanks to your emissary for forwarding my address to you so you could mail my coin.

 

Interesting postmark! :unsure:

209 + 4 = 213

 

I'm sure this number will increase when we head north for the MWGB. We're planning on doing as many as we can.

 

P-)

 

You aren't the only one--we've read over 400 ISQ logs from bashers and they are still coming in!

As of 07/24/08 (last my finds PQ, I'll run an update as soon as I get all of the MWGB trip finds logged - about Y3K at the rate it's been going!) I have 116 Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Ontario Spirit Quest finds. If my records are correct, there's 45 waiting to be logged. A number challenged only by the number of finds that I have with some form of "Mr Incredible" in the name...

 

Plus 7 MSQ's hidden.

Okay after Our Midwest Geobash week of camping and caching we did another 18 ISQ's. 292+18=310

 

Ali Kat started with 78 and added 35 ISQ's to bring her total number to 113.

I was talking to dougsmiley at Geobash and he mentioned that I should log how many I have found so far. It got me thinking that I had meant to figure that out, but put it off....

 

So After this weekend I have now found 243 ISQs, Not bad for only being here 1 year.

 

 

I have also found relatives and men I served with, always a sobering remider that life is short.

 

I am sure it has been said before, but, I enjoy this series for the solitude,reflection, and the occasional discovery of personal history. Mostly though it allows me to stop and visit with those who have gone before,,,,

 

THX to those with the vision to set this up and help it to grow into an awsome series!!!

Those "WSQ's" are just common caches and are not allied with our series in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, North Dakota or Minnesota, so wouldn't count in these totals. Our Spirit Quest Caches are easily recognizable by our logos, mission statements and photos. For our purposes, your count is 19. There are similar caches in Kentucky and Ohio and elsewhere, that use the designation "SQ" but are not like our cache pages in look or purpose.

 

Having said that, it would be nice if somebody from Wisconsin would join us and take up the cause and start hiding Wisconsin Spirit Quests that adhered to our Eight Simple Rules... that are listed on our profile page.

I just checked my list. 278 ISQs finds for me. As a few of you have said, many of my favorite caches have been ISQs.

 

A HUGE thanks to everyone that has been researching and placing them!

After a trip to the Huntington area to snag some of the first few Spirit Quests, our total is now 198. Unfortunately, that whole dusk thing crept up and forced us to stop just short of 200. *sigh* So close.
