MISSION: Santa's Mission

Recommended Posts

He's making a list

And checking it twice;

Gonna find out Who's naughty and nice.

FEL_084.jpg

 

Mission Control - North Pole

northpole.jpg

Mission Package - One unactivated (NEW) geocoin (more if you wish) to be gifted to the recipent.

Packaged up to reflect the Christmas spirit.

Add a little wrapping, glitter, trims to make the recipient excited to receive.

Extra Christmas goodies, pins, treats will make this extra special.

Kids particularily will get excited by this mission.

 

This is like a secret Santa mission - you will be allocated someone to send a coin (packaged as below)

It is up to you as to whether you let the recipient know who is sending it.

 

 

Mission Date - Must have emailed by Oct 23rd.

Contact me through my geocaching profile.

Include - Your Postal address & postcode. If in a US State, please give full name of State, not abbreviation.

State the number of missions - see Limitations below.

santa-clipart.gif

 

Mission Limitations - Maximum of 3 missions per caching profile. (This is gonna be a BIG mission field - so I need to keep it simple for the Elfs!)

It will be cold in the Northern hemisphere and summer in the Southern Hemisphere, so be aware of this if adding chocolate or other meltable goodies.

 

 

You must be prepared to send the mission by the 10th November.

Postage may be later, if you do not receive an international recipent. But to meet some international Christmas mailing deadlines, you MUST be prepared to accept this date to participate in the mission.

 

Where possible, Mission recipients will be in a different country than yourself.

However, as the majority of participants tend to be in the US, this is not always possible.

 

So get those mission details in.

Please also post the status of the mission, once you have sent off your package.

ALSO post photos of incoming missions - we all love to see.

 

One final thing - make the package Christmasy - but do not spend a fortune.

Count me in here for one <_<

 

Question, Hanna might want to participate, BUT... if she does, I'd want her to exchange with another kid and I'd like for her and the other kid to do their own packages, IE, decorate themselves and make their own cards and keep it really cheap. Shipping to the US is pretty expensive, so is shipping from there to Sweden, so if someone wants to do a simple package that their kiddo does themself, let me know!

 

So... one for me and one possibly for Hanna :D

I have seen some reference to overseas shipping and the cost for this shipping.

 

Please sign us up for those missions, my kids love the interaction with fellow travelers

from other countries, when they discover a coin from another country it seems to be

twice the fun for them. We find the release location online, follow the coins progress

through the Geocaching maps, etc.....

 

They are looking at releasing some Geocoins to Stargates just to hit exotic locations...

We just gave three racers to a friend from Germany to release there.

I am Heading to South Africa later this year taking three more for release....

 

SO SIGN US UP FOR THE DISTANT MISSIONS....... <_<

Would you consider pet missions? I will sign up for missions but I really enjoy doing the pet thing too but having been through this myself, I know how much work goes into it and understand if you don't want to do that portion of it. I'll wait for you to post an answer before I send an email <_< Thanks.

Ok - I shall match child to child where possible,

Huge logistics already - mailbox is full!

I will not be acknowledging every mission by email, rather will post a list at a later date for y'all to check.

 

South Pacific elves down here are gonna busy!

Please be patient. (of course y'all will be)

Send thru the details, with a note for USA mission only.

I'll try to keep track of that...

 

Not sure if there will be postage delays around Christmas, but would like everyone to recieve their package before the magic day!

an added thought. update your geocaching profile. it is SO much easier to do these kinds of exchanges if we know a little something about each other.

Please remember to put your FULL mailing address....

 

Assuming that I know where everyone is, is not a good idea.

You may know, but I cannot look up everyone's profile - especially as many in the US often only put the states, forgetting that we are an international community.

Please don't give me more work.

 

So many in the first 20 hours! Whew!

As I have to officiate at a wedding on Saturday, it will be some time before I get to collate a list and post it....

 

Patience please.

Butterfly_lady,

 

Could you please add a mission for Bella/ she is our African Grey Parrot, She loves getting missions. Use our same address. She loves Pretty Bird treats and playing with big parrot toys. She is learning to make all kinds of sounds and sure is comming up with some goofy lauphes, does many whistle noises, whistles the dukes of hazards song, she is been really funny lately, ooh and loves music, only word we heard her say so far is "Peek a Boo", Hope she starts talking soon, been working so hard with her.

 

Thank You

GG - when the time gets closer, you & I can do a deal that will see you still included.

If the coins have not arrived by Oct 23rd, please still participate....

It should only take a week for a small envelope with 2 to 4 coins to get to you from New Zealand, and you can send something to cover later......

 

It would be a pity for you to miss out...

 

BTW - some good caches around Freemantle - I had two DNFs there!

GG.. Gosh girl..no coins..how sad. I'll bring you some! 28 days til I leave for Aussie. I see you soon! :)

 

I will be sending my mission box out after I get back from Australia. I'll have to pick up some nice Aussie trinkets. If whoever I get seems to be waiting forever, be patient, it will be coming before Christmas, I promise. I'll even Fed ex if I have to. Jodi
