Amtrekker TB/Geocoin Race

This info is from a previous thread but the title and subtitle was never changed as requested.


Hi all,


I thought I would go ahead and do a travel bug race in Amtrekker's honor. WINNER will win a coin of my choosing. Check out his web site at amtrekker.com to see more about him.


How it will work:


1. You create a new travel bug to send out or you can just send out a coin. It must be a new TB or Coin that you are sending out and not one that is already in circulation!


2. The Travel Bug page or Coin Page MUST have AMTREKKER in the title to participate.


3. Give your Travel bug a mission. Anything.


4. Post a link to your Tavel Bug page or Coin page in this thread. It must be posted here to be able to win.


5. You drop your TB or coin in a cache of your choosing after Friday Aug. 8 , 2008 but no later than Sept. 10, 2008. Any tb's or coins submitted after Sept 10 will not be participating in the contest. If Amtrekker completes his goals before Sept 10 and is back home then no more entries will be allowed after he arrives home. So the sooner you send it out the better. YOU CANNOT SEND THE TB OR COIN OUT BEFORE AUG. 8, IF YOU DO, THEN YOU ARE NOT ENTERED IN THE CONTEST!


6. No TB owner or Coin owner can dip a coin in one cache and then dip it into another for travel miles. YOU MUST ONLY DROP THE COIN INTO A CACHE AND LEAVE IT FOR ANOTHER CACHER TO PICK UP. Others may dip the TB or coin but they CANNOT be from the same caching team or family. Anyone suspected of cheating will automatically be disqualified from the race.


7. You are the only one responsible for your own TB or coin. If it gets lost or stolen before the contest ends then your out of luck.


8. When Amtrekker is finished with the 50 goals on his list and arrives back home then the contest will be over and the TB or Coin with the most miles on it will be the winner. The day and time he arrives home will be the official end of the contest. I will contact him to ask exactly when that date and time was. Winner will receive a coin of MY choosing.


9. I reserve the right to add or change rules as necessary during the contest.


10. Lets show Amtrekker our support and how much we love watching his adventures. You can check out his adventures at http://www.amtrekker.com/


Good Luck!

ok so no coin thats already had some travel. what about a coin thats been activated but has never left my house yet?


As long as the coins have no activity on them at all that is fine. It just need to be dropped in a cache by Sept. 10, 2008 (yes I did correct the date)

I never received a title change request, please link me to the thread and give me the title change, and I'll be happy to take care of it. Let's keep it all in one thread, please.


edit to add, I did have this weird message for two days telling me I had -1 message in my inbox. I don't think it's possible to have a negative number of messages. :unsure:

Well all, it looks like the end of Amtrekker's adventures will soon be over as he has projected a date it will end? Look here for the info.




I only see 4 official entries for this contest.


In 1st place so far is http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.as...9e-853f98c49d0b by Hodag Andrew w/171.6 miles so far


In 2nd place so far is http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.as...3b-ab0026e09616 by Burgessfour w/8.5 miles miles so far.


And http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.as...d0-ab9618b2b136 by Maine Family and http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.as...1b-e2089cda8322 by Solan109 are neck and neck w/0 miles.


I just want to thank all 4 of you for participating in this contest and since there are only a few of you I will see that each of you get a little something out of the contest with the winner receiving something a little more. There is still a little more than a month left before he believes his adventures will be over so this is still anyone's contest? (Make sure you follow the offical rules at the beginning of this thread, CHEATERS will be disqualified!!!) I've really enjoyed watching Amtrekkers adventures and I hope you have too as well as the tb's and coins you have submitted in his honor. I am not going to accept any more entries for the contest (if you have not sumitted the link to your tb or coin before the deadline date you cannot join); but if you would like to add your Amtrekker tb or coin on this thread for others to watch feel free to do so. Once he makes the offical announcement of the date and time he arrives home I will announce a winner once I look all the entries over which are on my watchlist. Good Luck Contestants!



EARTHA: I apologize for not getting back with you earlier. I have not been in the forum too much in the last couple of months due to unforeseen circumstances. Since this contest will soon be over please just let this thread be the official one for it. I believe the previous requests I had received from the moderators about this contest but had not gotten a response from once I contacted them were from other moderators other than you any way. Thank you.
