Attempt no 2! :grin: We went to the post office today to pick up what turned out to be a big package all the way from Canada!! I don't remember ordering anything from Canada, and definitely not this big, so I assume that this is my Santa's mission package. Going through the posts in this thread, I have found a nick with the same town in his/her/their profile... :anibad:

 

Anyway, the package will sit here until the other two packages (for Mr geosmurf and Miss geosmurf) have arrived (or until I run out of will power! :anibad: ) In the meantime, maybe the sender could confirm via e-mail or PM if this is in fact a mission package? Then, and only then, will I update our progress status. ;)

Package Received.....

That looks like the Blackpool Tower geocoin. Lucky you!

I believe your sender was definitely from the UK, and enjoys the area of Kew.

The Murray bookmark is very personal to him.

 

 

Yes i have never heard of this coin before and i was hopeing someone could tell me a little bit about it.

Description: The Blackpool Tower Geocoins are 38mm Diameter - 3.5mm thickness. Soft enamel both sides, with laser engraving.

 

The Blackpool Tower is a tourist attraction in the town of Blackpool, Lancashire, in northern England.

The tower is 158 m (518 ft 9 in) tall.

It was inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

It cost £42,000 GBP to construct, and it first opened to the public on 14 May 1894.

It is a member of the World Federation of Great Towers.

I received my santa's Mission!!!!!!! :anibad::anibad: All the way from Maine, USA. It is going to be so difficult to wait untill Christmas before opening the package! One of my cats, Mizuki, was curious as well: she tried to open the package with her teeth! Had to tell her that this was not the pet's mission yet...

 

In an attempt not to think about opening the package I started searching this thread to find out who my 'secret' Santa could be. I could find only one name from Maine with a 'package sent' update, so I think the Maine family would be a good guess :laughing: If I'm right: thank you for the christmassy looking box! (still haven't opened it and trying to wait...)

To keep myself from opening the Santa Mission I received, I decided to start making my own two missions ready for sending. It took me quite a while to pack everything, so I hope customs won't open it ;-)

Anyway, this was the result:

 

Mission 1 ready to be sent

Mission 2 ready to be sent as well

 

http://img.geocaching.com/user/9afbc39d-db...628cbf636c3.jpg

 

I took them to the postoffice this afternoon and send them with priority post. So I guess the receivers will get the missions early and will have a hard time waiting to open as well! Of course you can always spread it: open one little package every 3 or 4 days untill Christmas :anibad: Or just open it straight away off course, that's up to you! :anibad:

 

But who will be the receivers of these missions???? :laughing:

I sent my parcel out well over a week ago now - However I actually had to double back to the post office to remind THEM that a customs declaration was needed for the parcel....

 

Hmm.

 

I hope this works out...

 

:laughing:

 

I just had exactly the same experience at my local postoffice: explaining what the costs should be, what zone the destinations country was in and that a customs declaration was neccesary... :anibad:

 

But I'm sure evereything will arrive eventually!

Piping in with a requested mission update.

 

All the goodies are in hand. One mission is domestic, so I'll send it off after Thanksgiving - it should arrive the first week in December. The other mission is international. I'll be traveling to that country next week and hope to post it domestically from there to save some time and $.

Team Fehling's Update:

 

We will be shipping out our packages next week, right before Thanksgiving. 2 are staying in the states and will be shipped out Priority. The other is going to Canada, and it will not take long for it to get there.

 

We are having a ball watching everyone receive their packages!!! It's soo exciting.
