Sorry folks,

 

For those waiting on the final round of missions to be allocated, a delay due to a rather hetic time.

 

Hubby had a severe allergic reaction, and we've been a bit busy as a result...

 

A few more days, maybe a week and all will be back on track. :lol:

My Evolution coin TB280FM has made its first big jump, landing in Scotland after having started off in the Netherlands.

 

No pictures yet of the coin's new location, so here's a swallowtail butterfly I saw a couple weeks ago:

:anibad: Here in New Zealand today - yes both in one day - I came across two coins in this mission.

One travelling to bluecherry - that should get to you fast. It's on a tour soon.

And one going to Tasmania, new owner CinemaBoxers.

 

How cool is that????

 

Thanks everyone - I never thought that I would see any of your travelling coins.

What a thrill it was to see those.

 

In fact I now have TB26T2E in my caching kit.

 

Cool !!!!!!!! :)

Our outgoing coin has reached it's destination. Hopefully the Bloranges are watching and will get it picked up before someone else.

 

From Madison Heights, Michigan (Near Detroit) USA to Wales UK in only 3 steps. And one of those was to start the mileage clock.

 

I think this might be the first success of this mission.

Both my incoming coins are at a stand still, in fact the one has not moved at all, and the coin I got started for grodan & fiabus has been moving a little.

Hope they are all safe and sound

Pretty much the same here. My outgoing coin has traveled from Oregon to North Carolina en route Ohio. My incoming coin is right where it was first dropped in Wisconsin in the Lost Souls cache. I hope that's not prophetic.

Mine has moved a total of 7 1/2 miles since release - and that in the wrong direction! If anyone in Vancouver wants to go to Sherlock Hemlock and get it moving in this direction I'd be very grateful!

Our outgoing coin got lucky and jumped the pond and was delivered to its owner in only 3 steps :(

 

Our incoming coin has moved 185 miles and has been in the hands of the cacher who picked it up for over 2 months. We hope it starts moving again soon :ninja:

It HAS popped up........it's made it all the way over to GCK38X in Sweden!!!!!!!!!!! 1975_dancing_banana.gif

 

That was a brilliant surprise this morning, because I honestly thought that it must have gotten lost somewhere enroute.........well it's a lot nearer to Scotland now so I'm keeping everything crossed here!! :D

 

Just in case it makes it over here I've had to update the details of the cache that it's mission is to head to........because that one of ours got muggled recently and we are just in the process of getting it's replacement sorted out. So the it's new cache destination is our cache "Logie Cache & Dash" GC1C9RK.

I had some time on my hands so I thought I would check on our participants...they aren't doing so good :yikes:

 

Participant 1- TB1W6G3 is coming to us from Tasmania, Australia it has traveled 104.5 miles so far, it is still in Tasmania....I'll give it about 1 1/2 years to make it to us at that rate! :wacko:

 

Participant 2- TB2DYHD is coming to us from the Netherlands, it has traveled 89.2 miles. It is currently still in the Netherlands.

 

Maybe they have both seen what Northern Michigan winters are like and are waiting to get closer for our summer. :blink:

Well I didn't want to think about this mission for ages as the one that I sent out went missing from an event straight after it got picked up! I placed it near state highway 1 in a traditional so as it would be picked up quickly. It wasn't, after a month of not moving I was about to move it when it was picked up and taken about 800kms north to an event. In to which it dissapeared with out a trave....

 

That is untill about 10 months later and it was found in the car of the person who took it to the event!!! Oh I am so glad that the first coin I ever traded is on the move again!!! Hopefully it will have faster travels from now on.

 

As to the coin that is on the way to me, well it was coming from Sweden and has travelled so far to Rhode Island east coast USA. So I am still hopefull that it will arrive at some stage.

 

Thanks for orgainising this mission.

As I say, some really mysterious things happen with our travellers...

 

This is great news! I love those stories about coins! :D

Especially with a good ending. (So far for now....)

This sounds like a fun mission. Tha Saint and I are doing this together. It'd be fun to try it again. Also to have someone organize the mileage and location of all the coins. Like the PGR, but they're not racing.

The first and only cacher to retrieve my coin (TB26J90) grabbed it nearly 9 months ago and has yet to move it. The last 5 emails I've sent him (5/9/09, 5/27/09, 06/25/09, 07/13/09 and 07/22/09) have gone unanswered. He caches infrequently, but was out on 07/01/09 and dropped some trackables he's been holding on to for many moons - but not mine. I've tried to be patient with him, but I'm at my rope's end. My last email asked simply, "IS THERE ANY REASON I SHOULD NOT REGARD THIS COIN AS STOLEN?!". No answer. I'm about to change the name of the coin to STOLEN BY ARNMAKER :blink:
