52 PICK UP - The Mission/Cointest - Pick a Card, Any Card

Recommended Posts

I was surprised and thrilled to receive this mission from fuzziebear3 today. I was so excited when I went to pick up the package... my husband thinks I'm nuts because I'm always so excited about mail but I think he's just jealous cuz he never gets anything cool.

 

I opened the box to find:

3926865781_f7aec273d5.jpg

 

I love the little mission backpack, and browsed through the cards to see if the one I wanted to choose was still available (it was!). I'll be filling in the logbook shortly. I did (reluctantly) share the goodies with my husband, and I'm looking forward to playing UNO. It's always been a favourite of mine - we used to play it all the time when I was little but the cards disappeared during a move some time ago. I never got around to getting another set, so this was a perfect gift.

 

Last, but certainly not least (I know it's not a great picture, but you can use your imagination):

A cache hopper! I was struggling during the sale, and accidentally ended up with a cart full of 'out of stock' :huh: so this little guy made me very happy. I'm going to enjoy looking at him for a while (actually, I've already been examining all the little details... I love it) and then hopefully release him to see where he'll go. If I can bear to part with him, of course.

 

fuzziebear3, you did a wonderful job with this mission, and I appreciate it so much. It put a big smile on my face, and I'm looking forward to putting something else together for the next person. Thanks also to opalsns for starting such a fun mission and keeping everybody updated.

 

Chocolate and a frog = :(B) Congratulations sarabelle

I'll second that emotion - how fun to receive this mission, sarabelle! And a nice assortment of coin and sugar goodies with it. Kudos to fuzziebear for a thoughtful mission, and of course to opalsns for keeping track of it all!

 

Looking forward to see where it goes next!

It'll be worth the wait, I'm sure!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I hope so. It is nothing real special just a little something that as so perfect for this mission. B)

Nothing real special?? How could you possibly say that!

 

I wasn't expecting anything and had completely forgotten about these missions so I was shocked today to find a package in my mailbox. I opened it up and out poured a bunch of little presents individually wrapped in adorable cat paper, a lovely postcard, and the Mission 1 binder.

 

I didn't read all of the postcard at first because I wanted the anticipation of opening the presents. But my son had a Dr appointment that we were running late for so they all had to wait until I got home. As soon as we did I had so much fun opening everything! The pretty little pink box was first, it contained a gorgeous breast cancer awareness bracelet (I lost both my Grandma and my aunt to breast cancer so I really love this!). Next was a really cute deck of cat playing cards, I spent quite a bit of time going through and reading each one! Next came 4! coins! One micro I don't know the name of, a Micro Micro, a Boomerang, and a Fiabus! 3 of these coins were from my seeking list! There was also a really cute Pathtag in with one of them!

Thank you so much for the wonderful mission, you made my day! I have made my card selection and am starting to get the mission put together for the next person. I hope to have it back in the mail by Monday.

I attached a list to an activated geocoin through the coin's profile page - I believe the link is in my signature line. Vanelle provided help with the HTML coding a while back...the thread was somewhere here in the forums.

We're definitely doing Arches, probably Canyonland as well, Canyon de Chelly, North Rim of the Grand Canyon, and Zion. Might be some others that sneak their way in, but those are on the "definite" list! :unsure:

I am WAY behind but I finally got Mission 1 together and it's going out tomorrow. It's going within the US so I'm sending it Priority Mail in the hopes that it will arrive to the next recipient quickly. Hope you enjoy!

I will be out of town between Oct. 1 and 4th. So in the unlikely (mathematically) event that sunsetmeadowlark is sending it to me, it may not be until after I get back that it is sent back out.

:):D:P I received a most wonderful package in the mail today. Mission One arrived safe and sound. I mouth dropped to the floor when I opened it. I received a beauty package just perfect for a lady like me, a cloth picture frame (very unique), several pathtag and a star. The wow factor was not one but TWO of the newest Earthturtles, Bora Bora and Maui editions. Both coins were on my wish list, thank you, thank you and thank you. I will not post pictures because the last time I tired to it was huge.

 

The mission will go by Fri. since I am leaving for Geocoinfest then, hope to see some of the folks on the list there. :P:o:o

Howdy, everyone --

 

I'm getting ready to PCS (permanent change of station). About mid-November, I'll get going back Stateside for about two and a half weeks of leave. In December, I'll be at a new duty station. Please don't send anything to me if you think it'll get to me in November (it usually takes 1-2 weeks for something to get to me from the States; anywhere from 3 weeks to a month [average) from anywhere else). Come Novemberish, I'll change my address in the Forum spreadsheet.

 

Thanks!

Would somebody be able to send me the instructions for grabbing the Mission 2 TB from the cache it's in? I'll keep it in my inventory until the next person receives their package, just so people don't go to the cache thinking there's a TB.

The Travel Bug for Mission 1 needs to be moved along so we can update the map.

 

Oops, forgot that part! I've grabbed it and logged it in and out of a local cache so it's now ready for fossillady to log.

Drop it in a cache near or belonging to FossilLady and I'll send her the number to retrieve and drop near her player.

i received mission 1 yesterday. it was a surprise. i opened the mailbox and wondered what the package was. it took me a few minutes to realize it was the 52 card pick up.

 

thank you fossillady for the two lovely coins. i really do like the message in a bottle coin. the other one remindes me of all of the off roading we do in the desert.

Mission 2 has arrived in Kentucky! I couldn't figure out right away what the package in my mailbox was. I had the Halloween mission in mind so was surprised to see that it was the 52 Pick Up. Thanks so much Sarabelle for picking me. I love my little penguin and all the other cute things you included. My camera is broken so this cellphone pic is the best I could do.

I'm so glad it arrived safely, I sometimes forget how long mail takes to get from here to there and get very worried that it's lost or held up or whatever. I've never sent a parcel before, and thought maybe the post office guy did it wrong since he was new. This is really a fun mission to watch. :P
