Also on final thing, if any one is willing to switch missions, i have one person with an international mission that requested a switch because they have had the same person in previous exchanges.

 

Thank You to everyone who has participated.

 

Please make sure to mail your packages with plenty of time to get there by Christmas. This is especially important for international missions.

In most missions I have been in I make a plea to others to have a list somewhere!! So again I am asking that favor. :rolleyes: Even if you don't have a seeking list maybe even a list of coins you do have so we don't send you a duplicate. ( That would mean though that we both have good taste in coins! LOL)

 

Ohters have used a tb page for their coin lists or even in their profile. Here is a free site where you can list coins.

 

Free Coin Listing Site

 

Now back to revising my own lists......

An updated keeperslist would bevery helpful. I am in for 4 missions and 3 have lists but I doubt one of them to be updated. Also some info about if the missions are for a person or pets or kid would be helpful.

 

My keepers are all activated so my santa can look in my profile also and at www.geocoincollection.com

 

So please update your lists. :rolleyes:

"But... there are quite a few new people and friends that either don't have a seperate GC.com account or don't have much info about themselves on their profile. Please post a little about yourself, or if you don't want to do that, you can email it to me and I will pass it along."

 

It will make you getting things appropriate for you easier . . .

Toojin is a cat and he likes cat toys and catnip (actually he is addicted).

 

Bart is in a stuffed bear, you can see many pictures of him in Toojin's profile in the gallery.

 

We all like signature items and event coins are our favorite type of coins. But we really like opening packages and Toojin and his sister Harmony like sitting in empty cardboard boxes and playing with packing material. See? We are easy!!

Whoever got my name should be getting one of those info email additions as i sent a lot of extra info in with my 'i agree to play in the santa mission' If you don't...have a surrogate sent me a note, and i'll send them a note with all the interesting goodies of information.

 

Question. What if I can't find anything on my name's wish list? Do I just hope for the best? Cause I promise you, I probably don't have anything they want/need....as I've only cached since April. I have a few unactivated coins that I've gotten in a trade or two/contest wins, but none of them on on their list. :s

Well if its me I am currently updating my list as I type! :rolleyes:B) If its not, well what I have done in the past in take a look at their list and see what type of coins they seem to like and collect and then find something in that same vein. The other thing that might work is to give them something that would make a great trader so they could trade to get something on their list. The hardest part is when there is no list at all. Or maybe if there isn't a list then it is easy!

Info for me: I am very new to geocoins so I don;t have a seeking list but I would be happy for any. I like animals (marine esp.) Colorado, (my former home) Alaska, and Australia.

Other hobbies and interests include, crafting, cooking, photography. I am not a girly girl, favorite color is black. I live in south Florida so as much as I love chocolate we sometimes have heat waves late in the winter so double bag meltable items. I also like to travel so items from your local area would be cool too!

As far as interests go, Sofi collects lions, Holmbiorn likes turtles. We have started collecting monkeys for the boy (his nursery will be jungle themed), and the kitties, well they are kitties they like cat things! We also play in the SCA (a medieval reenactment group) so anything medieval or Viking would be awesome! But we will be happy with whatever is sent, the fun part is putting the presents together for our secret santa's!!

 

Now off to research and search for their favorite coins! :)

It is helpful to know a bit about the person you are sending a package for. For those new to missions, I also find that reading through old posts of the person you are creating a gift for is helpful (just go to their profile page and click on the link).

 

For whoever has me, my seeking list is somewhat updated and I just added (in a boring list) on my site, all the new coins I have received lately.

 

I really enjoy caching but I haven't been able to go out that much because I am pregnant and due in December. I enjoy the outdoors, boating, spending time at my cottage.

 

Coffee and chocolate are my favourite two things to consume! lol!

 

I am happy with whatever is sent and I enjoy learning about the person sending the package through their selections. B)

 

Hope that helps a little...

Maybe it is the kid of someone that has a profile, then I suppose the one with the profile will do as research from.

Like I do for us, I sign the kids up with own "cachernames" though they don´t have their own profile. They get the things/stuff and I get to keep the coin in my lists. :ph34r: If you check on grodan & fiabus keeperlist at geocoincollection.com you see what I mean.

 

And for the ones that got the missions signed up under grodan & fiabus, I , sorry we, like chocolate and candy :) no allergies.

 

I have been out shopping today and found some nice things, but I have 2 tough missions, one of them I have not even heard the name of before and it makes no sense with the signed up profile. :)

I have also some trades on for coins that are on the lists for now. Don´t trade!!! :)

Whoever has me!

I do not have a seeking list as I am happy with any coin I get. There are 1000's of different designs out there that I feel it would be a miracle if I get a double!

I only have about 20 coins and they are not activated so do not show up on my profile (the jury is still out as to whether or not I should activate them even though I will never get rid of them).

I refuse to get old love everything about chritmas and enjoy walking ,camping and crafts.

Sorry I don't have a trading list-but here are some hints--I really love pirates, snowmen, compass roses & anything with numbers, symbols and shapes on it. I like black nickel, nickel or silver the best, but really love all coins so you can't go wrong with any coin. I am also a huge NASCAR fan-Jeff Gordon is the man. Hopefully this helps
