Geocache Bandit Mystery Geocoin

Recommended Posts

I woke up early this evening (work 3rd shift) and decided to check the mail and to my surprise I spot a black bubble mailer, and as I am examining the package, I keep thinking "Is this what I think it is?"

 

Sure enough, it was a Geo_Bandit Geocoin! :):D

 

Thank You Geo_Bandit!!!

 

I have been roped in and this coin goes into a special place in my collection, the coin number is 021.

 

As my birthday was last week, this is a most excellent B Day present, Thanks Again Geo_Bandit!!!

 

:D:laughing::yikes:

So now at 3am I desided for the heck of it to go out in the cold and myst in my skivvies to see if I had some bills show up and out came a black mailer..... All the way back to the house i was saying "nahhh couldn't be"

 

But yup WOOOOO HOOOO I got my first Mystery Coin!!!!!

 

A great Geo Bandit # 349!

The bandit has struck again! I don't know who the bandit is or where the bandit gets their information but I got roped in again! Since the first one received was addressed to both me and Johnslady56 in my original post I jokingly mentioned that we would have to share the coin. I guess the bandit felt bad about my joke and decided to send out another fantastic gift! This time it was addressed only to myself and included a special note about 'sharing' and a beautiful blue geobandit coin (#008)!!! Now Diana (Johnslady56) will get the original coin and I will keep the new blue one!!!

 

I am now convinced that the bandit either has spies everywhere or must be a psychic. I've had a terrible week this past week. I had to take a 5% pay cut in order to keep my job, my co-manager has been on vacation and I had just finished working my sixth (12 hour) day in a row and I had spent the day working the most physically demanding position at my job because one of my employees called in sick. So after working 12 long hot hours out in the sun (and I forgot sunscreen and got fried), I was not looking forward to the 2 1/2 hour drive down to Los Angeles to see my Los Angeles Kings hockey team lose another game. I was just completely exhausted! That is, until I got home.

 

Once there, I picked up the mail and saw a very familar black mailer. I thought to myself, "The bandit must have made a mistake" until I opened it and saw the note inside. When I realized it was truly mine and not shared I was instantly energized and the rest of the day/night was great (except that the Kings lost). We hit no traffic on the drive to the game (only took 1 1/2 hours), no problems with parking, short lines at the concession stand, no obnoxious fans (just your usual rowdy hockey fans including us) and no traffic heading home.

 

Somehow the bandit just seems to KNOW when someone needs a little pick-me-up. Both times with us the bandit has picked the exact right day to gift us with coins. I am truely grateful for these gifts and will treasure them forever.

 

Thanks Bandit, you have helped me to get up out of a slump once again!!!

 

After tearing a muscle in my lower back earlier this week, then having my company car not start this morning and having to wake Johnslady56 at 5:30am to drive me to work, then having my network connection at work fail mutliple times today and having way too many unhappy customers I was not looking forward to whatever else was going to be thrown at me today.

 

Diana (Johnslady56) came to pick me up at work and brought the mail along with her. Mixed into everything I saw the corner of a shiny black mailer!!! Could it be?!?! Or is she just messing with me?!?!

 

I snatched the mailer from the stack and sure enough, the telltale Geo_Bandit stamp is affixed to the shiny black 'puffie'!!! I could barely contain myself, and had to open it right then and there!!! Diana didn't seem to know why I was so excited about this simple black puffie, until I showed her what it contained and then it hit her; WE had been blessed with a Geo-Bandit coin!!! And by WE I mean the both of us as it was addressed to us both...

 

I don't know how you do it Bandit, but you must have second sight. I had been having a rotten, terrible, painful week and then to finish it off with this gift, I just can't seem to find the words...

 

How can I thank someone for something as special as this, and for it to arrive at just the right time? I will have to think of someway to spread my happiness...

 

THANK YOU Geo-Bandit! For making my week end on such a fantastic note!!! This coin will forever remain in our collection. I guess we will have to find some way to share it, maybe alternate weeks, or odd and even days...

And for the record we received coin #175

I was neglectful in my posting the other day, Ihave received one of these beauties for our Lazy Hayes Days III event...a BLUE ONE!!! Now, I must say, I was taken aback by the blue, I had to get mine out and check to see if my memory served me correctly...sure enough, the one I have is GREEN!!

 

So, I am proud to announce that the Lazy Hayes Days III event will have a beautiful BLUE Geo_Bandit waiting for some lucky winner!!!

 

THANK YOU for your continued generosity and spreading of the fun and excitement a MYSTERY COIN brings, well done my masked bandit friend!!

 

Also CONGRATS to all of the bandits being roped in!!!!

I can't believe I've been roped in too! I got my black bubble mailer a couple of weeks ago and have just been waiting for some free time to take some photos before posting. The coin the Geo_Bandit sent me is number 309. It's green on one side, yellow on the other, and black nickel all over. It sure looks great. I love black nickel coins.

My favorite part of this coin though is the translucent enamel over the detailed metal. When I eventually make a personal coin of my own you can bet it will have translucent enamel on it.

Thanks so much, Geo_Bandit! For someone that isn't very active on the geocoin forum (I lurk and read the forum a lot, but hardly ever post anything) I consider myself very fortunate to have received one of these beautiful coins. Geo_Bandit, your generosity is much appreciated! Thanks for providing me with some smiles!

 

Blue skies and happy trails!

I was cleaning up my living room, and found the envelope from Geo_Bandit with the mystery coin that was sent to me. Not sure exactly when I received it (could not make out a date on the postmark), but it was a couple of years ago. The coin is green on one side and yellow on the other, and there is a #045 on it.

 

Thanks to whomever set it to me! :D Not trackable, though, so I can't let anyone log discoveries.
