Esther says she received her package today from solan109, but won't tell me what is in it!!

 

:laughing:

 

I did eventually get to see what my wife got from solan109! Her package contained about a dozen postcards from Stockholm and elsewhere in Sweden, a couple of toothpick flags, a lanyard, one of Solan's wooden nickels and two coins: a Lapporten 2008 and a princesscake. Thanks solan!!

 

Hopefully there was a dalahorse pin in there somwhere too ... I´m glad she liked it

The Palt (PitePalt) souvenir is Grand,I love it.

I must be Swedish from somewhere down the line because I love Potato's.

I have given the recipe to my wife TIGGR and plan on having some real soon.

 

Thanks again to my secret geocoin swooper.

 

Where do you get the activation code for the Sweden The Crown of Europe geocoin?

Many thanks TeamEccs21. I had seen your personal coin previously and admired it, and now I have one :D. The relief on it is incredible. And my first GeoGuitar - woohoo!! :lol: Wish I'd been in on that project as they are very sharp looking. Thanks also for the postcards and the really nice tee shirt - it is a perfect fit!! Thank you, thank you, thank you. :D

Also a little laminated siggy item with "Team: A Flipper&co" on it. Our benefactors, I'm guessing. :) Thank you so much! Ian thought it was really cool to get something from Australia.

Well, it turns out that the coin/chocloate bar/topo bar was part of the math mission, so...yesterday my real souvenir mission came and it was awesome.

Thanks very very much!!

1). Souvenir Email Sent - April 15

2). Souvenir Name Received - Yes

3). Souvenir Mission Sent - Yes today

4). Souvenir Mission Received - YES - a lovely package from 9Key, thank you so much.

 

Finally got to take a photo of the great package I received from 9Key. The can of Armadillo Meat was a huge surprise, I've eaten Crocodile and Kangaroo, Rabbit, Hare & Monkey Poo (by mistake). But I've never had an Armadillo, it comes in sauce and gritty bits, I thought it might give me the s***s, it was kinda chewy, I got sore jaws, but for that can of Armadillo I give you applause. The Texas Jalapeno seeds, spicy hot TEXAS SIZE Jelly Beans, what better to follow a meal of tinned Armadillo with. It's nice to get a night off from Kitchen duty :unsure:

 

Two great Texas coins, keychain, fridge magnet and some travelling pathtags and a travel slug, all to appear in a cache soon.

 

:):D Thanks so much 9Key, it was a fun package to receive :D;)

Thank you for all the nice things and the lovely coins.

Happy Birthday Rooksie

 

Got my second mission today - I got 2 children bouncing of of the furniture - as hyper as I have ever seen them. I asked what was going on and they tell me it was "the Sugar Rush from the Pecan Brittle" this is not something we get over here so it either affected them more or there was a secret ingredient :rolleyes:

All I know is I could do with a pint of it ;)

 

Also got postcards key ring and cool coins - souvenirs from 3 places

 

Thanks

Love those coins, I already have a Kansas sunflower so this one will probably end up in another mission to spread its sunshine.

 

Thank you so much. Love the frog.

Souvenir Mission received - Yes, received from dhenninger!

 

Yesterday I finally sent out my two mission packages AND I received my first souvenir mission, from dhenniger, from New Jersey. Being a big Springsteen fan, ever since I learned that the Boss is not from Nebraska New Jersey has a special ring to it for me :D

I received a really fun 'Weird Jersey' tourist guide, a NJ photo book, a whole bunch of Jersey postcards and a South/Northern NJ geocachers coin, a dhenninger benchmark coin (with the cutest little bear on it!9, and what I assume to be a former dollar cent, now all stretched out and featuring the NY Twin Towers - my birtday is 9/11 :anibad:

I took all these gifts to a friend's house to show them off and he immediately confiscated the Weird Jersey guide, so I'll have to fight him to get it back (also so I can take pictyures to post here!)

 

Thanks dhenninger, you really went all the way and beyond!

Glad you enjoyed the package! You know, I was tempted to eat the box of Butter Toffee myself... took a lot of self control not to! B) The red/yellow dinosaur has been dubbed "Dopey Dinosaur" by my husband (that's his version of the coin.. he said purple was too girly :) ). It was really tough to not buy every cool souvenir I saw. And of course since I love Idaho history I had to send something dealing with the Oregon Trail. :D

Received our mission in the mail yesterday and would like to send out a HUGE thanks to our Halifax mystery senders, Chuck & family (no geocaching name anywhere on the package or card!).

 

We're delighted to receive Hammer of Thor (antique copper) and Signal (June 2006) geocoins - we didn't have either one in our geocoin collection. Also received a beautiful hand-made card, a postcard, a really cool nautical-themed key chain, some salt-water taffy and a soft & cuddly red lobster (I know, soft & cuddly and lobster don't normally go in the same sentence, but this one is all plush & velvety). Youngest GeoKid loves our new Halifax lobster and it had a place of honour on his pillow last night at bed time.

 

Thanks for your wonderful generousity - most appreciated!!

Oops. That's us! Glad you liked your souvenirs and coins! :D

 

Like we said in the card, we didn't know what your attitudes towards lobsters were, so we sent a stuffed one instead of live ones! :)

Hi Gayle and Mark! I'm so glad the package arrived in tact! So sorry for the delay! Good luck on your round the world trip (HOW LUCKY) If you ever get near the Washington, D.C. area, please let me know! I would be happy to show you around our little town.

 

BTW, I go to Photobucket.com to upload all of my pictures here. If you want any directions, just email me. It took me a long time to figure it out, but I got it eventually. :D

I have it on good authority that rattusbaggus's mission is enroute. :D

 

CF30

 

I concur... :D

 

Update coming shortly :D

 

Finally the pictures :)

 

Michael... Opps, I mean rattusbaggus... was very, very excited to get this mission. He had been at his grandparents for the morning as he has a cold and in the morning was not feeling the best so I decided not to send him to school. Grandparents had to go to a funeral early afternoon, so I headed home at lunch time for Michael to be dropped off whilst grandparents went to said funeral.

 

Well his face as he unpacked the box! His jaw dropped.

08sou04a.jpg

 

Whilst he was was unpacking the goodies he said to me "Dad, can this mission get any cooler!!?" I think that totally sums it up. And it did get cooler as he said that only after looking at the coins, and before seeing the tee-shirt and baseball cap. Man was he excited to see those!!!

08sou04b.jpg

 

Sarah - you most certainly made a little boys day in this household. Thank you very much...

 

Any you made a certain big boys day too with the little feathery surprise included :D. Thank you very much!! :anibad:
