MISSION: - Gift, cache & travel.

Recommended Posts

Got a lovely email from the folks that we have gifted a coin to........no illness in the family thank goodness....but horrendous "puter problems" by the sound of it :huh: . They've activated their hippie bus (I'm really chuffed that it just happened to be a coin that they had really liked too) so I'll update my details as soon as I've got the mission details attached to it......then it'll hit the road ASAP, just hope that it's engine is up to par LOL!

 

Ali :huh::)

I still haven't heard anything from the person who willl gift a coin to me...

 

I have taken the coin that I gifted to two events in hope that there would be someone who could give the coin a really good start, but that was not the case. Now I will drop the coin in a cache as soon as possible!

I send the coin details to my giftee but there has been no activation yet.

As I understand it's the same person as Steinwälzers, I just hope, nothing serious has happened.

...I wonder if it would be easier for reports on mission progress to be made via a google spreadsheet? It would be a lot easier to keep track that way.

That's a good idea, it would be so much easier, if all missions were in a list....

Contacted by both of my missions and happy to report that they are both on their journey. :D

 

Since I think this may be my last post on this thread for awhile (both my gifted coins going to Europe), I will try and post any significant mileage milestones on both travelers. This is good fun, right here! Thanks BFly Lady!

It's a bit OT but on Sunday we visited a park and in the butterfly house I had to think of our phantastic mission host!

 

Thank you Butterfly Lady for all your hard work!!!

Thank you Butterfly Lady, I had hoped to drop mine at a pirate caching event on the 25th to give it a good start. Will do my best to find it somewhere good to go from after that though if my recipient doesn't get back to me before.

 

The coin coming to me is almost on the other side of the world so has a very long journey!

With many many apologies to my coin receiver OverTheEdge. I have finally emailed them with the info on their coins to get their missions started. No excuses. I screwed up the timing of the mission and neglected to post we'd be away for a bit.

 

I myself have not yet been contacted by my mission person. Thanks for the excellent mission Butterfly. I'm really looking forward to watching my coins travel to my person and form the other person.

Outgoing coin (to gjensen) has been activated (TB27Z8E). I have dipped it through our home cache to start it off and we will be taking it with us to the UK's First Mega Event (3rd August) to hopefully find a cacher there who will be able to take it across the English Channel into mainland Europe.

 

Incoming coin (from TeamEccs21) has been activated into our account. (TB1G604) They intend to start it off from the Mid West GeoBash in the first week of August.

 

All going well so far! :D

Outgoing coin-TB2BMMH-for Rifleman81 has been activated and placed.

Incoming coin-TB17ZPE-from thebuddhaman is on it's way and looks like its traveling from Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon!

This is fun and I hope both these coins make it to their intended caches!!!! :D

When southpawaz gifted our coin to us, he very thoughtfully gave us a "Crake Malachite Butterfly" geocoin that has "keeper" coin along with it. I had never heard of this type of coin before and today our keeper arrived in the post. Many thanks once again Bobby, this is lovely..... as is the postcard that you sent too.

 

It has a little magnet on the back of it and it now takes pride of place on our fridge door. Hopefully one day, both butterflies will be reunited....but if not, I'll always have this little beauty! :rolleyes:

Hi everyone - checking in 5,333 km from home! In a hotel that normally cost AUD $400 a night (got a special conference deal though) and they charge another $29 extra a day for internet!!! Paid for it, so using it to the max!

(I'm eating out each day, could buy lots of geocoins with the savings!)

 

All the gifted geocoins won (except the one not yet claimed) have been dropped into caches in Western Australia, and I have seen some picked up and moved already.

So many geocoins in caches here, it's been a busy time distributing them. Although the first two I picked up have restrictive missions and I cannot take them home.

 

Great to see coins out there moving around.

I've said it before and I'll say it again...

 

This is an outstanding mission and if Butterfly Lady requires more participants to 'match-up' - I would certainly be in for a few more...

 

The two coins that we set out to travel have been picked up and one of them actually is in the destination country! Wooty!

Calling gjensen.....

 

There seems to be a problem with emails.

I see you have activated the coin you won, so that is to be underway soon, but myself and others who have gifted coins to you are not receiving emails.

Also, I don't think you have posted any status in the forum.

 

Please update your status, so that we can stop worrying.

 

Thanks

 

Edit to update - received email.

All should receive emails from gjensen this week, if they have them as a mission gifter / receiver.

Thanks for all of your hard work, Butterfly lady. This is fun.

Will you be doing this regularly? I would love to play again, but will be quite busy for the next few months. :-(

This has proven very popular and I have had several requests from those who missed out on the first round.

A second group of missions have gone out and a third one is being put together for August.

 

After that, I'll take a break.

 

We need to let other missions occur, but I'll be back setting up another similar one in a few months I suspect.

As geocoins were intended to travel I'd like to encourage all to have some travelling. It's fun watching them, and even though some go missing, most with a definite mission (especially attached to the coin) head towards their destination.

 

I enjoy watching them all.

UPDATE:

O.K. all the three names of cachers that I had have all activated their coins AND they are on their way :drama:

But the third person who had me never got in touch with me :unsure:

 

You know what? I'm Not going to let that discourage me. I'll get into the second round, also :ph34r:

Just an update. The coins I am gifting to OverTheEdge have been dropped in caches today and are beginning their travels.

 

And I have been contacted today by my gifter gjensen and we are in the works of getting that coin activated and ready to go.

 

Thanks for all the hard work Butterfly Lady.

My third outgoing coin has been activated today and will be headed out caching with me to be dropped in the next day or two.

 

This will wrap up my three outgoing missions and my three incoming coins have all been released as well. Thanks to all and especially to Butterfly lady for organizing.

The coin has been placed in a local cahce and the Giftee knows of it. I have not logged the coin into the cache because a coin thief has popped up in the area. I will log the coin in for correct mileage after it has been retrieved.

 

Also, I have not heard from whomever is sending me a coin at all.

That person is not posting in the forum, or responding to emails... so I'm sending you a back up - email has been sent.

 

911turbos - this person is also a recipient for your second mission - any response? Fingers X'd that they are not injured or too sick to respond.

Life sometimes turns around our plans.

 

Update - confirm this person is back on track in the mission - yes, a bereavement had meant they were unable to contribute on the same time scale as everyone else...

 

As far as I know - it's all missions GO!
