Pay it Forward Geocoin Adoptions

Recommended Posts

Well... I am not a doner... of course.. I do not know what future will bring...

 

About blood... well... I gave blood 7 times! People needed blood, I could give at that time, and I just gave! Does this count as donation? :D

Absolutely it counts! Every blood donation can save as many as 3 lives!! I have given 32 times!! It feels so good to think about all of the lives that I have helped!

I just found out about this thread from daveindeal: awesome idea, thank you to the OP and everybody else who offered coins.

 

I would love to adopt a coin if still possible and available. I released a TB and 2 cachekinz until now (3 more ready to go) but I would love to have a coin traveling.

 

Thanks again for such a great offer.

Found my first geocoin tonight, got excited because there was no info sheet with it, but I tracked it and will help move it along. I'd love to have some to seed and some to release myself.

 

Thanks

I just activated some TB tags, now I need to find a traveler for them. But if anyone else is still willing, I wouldn't mind adopting a coin.

Adoption requests have been sent.

 

I also got the request and approved. I've never done this before so I was worried I may mess it up but it was easy.

 

Thank you so very much for this awesome thing you did. I hope someday I will be able to pay it forward.

Hi ~ If anybody has a coin for adoption, I'd love to be considered. I was fortunate to have one adopted over to me in January, but since it was placed in a cache by the former owner, it hasn't moved (sitting for 2 months isn't very exciting on the *watch it move around* meter). ;)

 

I have a 3 TB's in the wild (they aren't moving much and one was just placed in an obscure cache today ... 40 visits in 4 yrs.) and 2 of my 3 GC's seem to be stuck moving around my own hometown, one of which went out of state and then was brought back to ... yes, my hometown!! :D

 

I'd love to adopt a coin ... and will pay it back when I'm in a position to do so.

 

THANKS!! :D

THANK YOU so much, Tennessee Jed. I've accepted the adoption and have only edited the page to place an acknowledgment of the adoption and to thank you for your kindness and generosity! :D

 

As for the coin travelling in Europe, I've read in the forums that most of them seem to have a better survival rate and travel frequently. I am sooooooooo very happy to have received this coin. THANK YOU, once again!! :lol::lol::P;):):D:D:):) (9 smileys ... and 9 is also the month of my birth ... did I mention yet that I'm happy to have this coin?!?) :)

If anyone has any more coins up for adoption, I'd love to adopt one. I'm fairly new to caching, and haven't found any coins yet (did find a pathtag yesterday), but would love to be able to show my son how the coins work (and maybe a little geography to boot). When I get some coins I will definitely pay it forward. Thanks for the consideration.

Great Tom! You would think that caching in Australia would be a year round thing but would you believe that sometimes it is too hot to cache?! Then of course in the 'winter' it rains for days and days and days... :P

I sent your adoption request a couple of days ago...

Hi just started geocaching here in Vienna, Austria - although got introduced to it by family last year. If there are any coins available, we're definitely willing to adopt and as soon as we have a double, will offer it up for adoption. This is really a cool idea. Thanks!

I'm not sure if their are any coins left to be adopted, but my family just recently started geocaching and only have a collection of two coins and I was looking forward to introducing some more to our city, cause my city seemed to have very few in it.

2golfers, I noticed you just let the coin you adopted to me go free in the wild. It's so cool to have a coin out there! Thank you so very much for everything, this is awesome!

My fiancee and I recently created our first cache while I was visiting her for spring break. We live some 1000 miles apart right now, with her in Ontario and me at university in Tennessee. With me graduating this May and my cross-continental move/our wedding/our new lives controlling all of our budgeting, we're too financially restrained currently to let ourselves buy any geocoins, as much as we'd like to. If anyone has the generosity to spare, we'd love to get one out there in our name. Watching our cache's logs and past trackables we've discovered helps take our minds off the stress of distance and getting our lives together over the coming months, so having our own coin to watch would be especially fun.

 

We'd love to participate as givers in threads like this once we're on our feet, in the true spirit of paying generosity forward, regardless of if anyone has a coin to adopt presently. :)

Wow, thank you so much, from the both of us. Well, Crys hasn't seen yet, but I'll be showing this to her as soon as I catch her online tonight, and I'm sure she'll be excited too. :(

Is this the same geocoin design? http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=163073

If so, were there really only 10 of these minted? :D

Even if there were 10,000 made, we're super happy to be the new owners of this one and hope it stays safe in its travels. :(

 

Are we now free to change our little coin's goal from being a discovery coin to something else? (Like, "To one day travel to Ontario and greet its owners for the first time, wandering from cache to cache until then." or something to that effect)

 

Thank you very much, and I hope to eventually pay a visit to some of your Tennessee caches, should I happen to get myself a car and the means to do so.

I have a coin for each of you.

 

The coins I have are extras and need to be activated before the adoption process. Some of the Pay It Forward coins have been traveling before someone gives them up for adoption.

I would LOVE to adopt one of the Diabetes Travelers which were released a couple/three years back. I dunno, maybe they were all owned by the diabetes foundation which may have released the, rather than individual cachers. In that case, my wish is most likely not a valid one.

 

I have seen them listed as being in maybe 20-25 of the Arkansas caches I have found, but I have yet to see a single one in person. They must have been hugely popular for the less-honest amongst us, since that seems like a VERY high disappearence percentage.

 

Beause of me never yet seeing one (I've tried, trust me), I can't even really remember if they are actual coins or Bugs. I think the pictures of them show a light-blue circle of metal, or something similar. Either or, I'd like to get my name attached to one of thoe, if that's possible, since I have relatives & friends who have/have had diabetes.

 

If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it more than words could say. If you can't help, well, I understand & that's okay too.

I was wondering... How are the adopted cins going? Are they travelling far, in beautiful places? Are they moving? Or.. :wub:

 

I had some loses..... :(

 

So... let's see... If Ted allow it of course... how your new adopted coins go, and how many of you visited this thread because of a coin ou saw? :D

 

Let's give some life to this thread until new coins will come for adoption... shall we? :wub:

The coins I sent to Japan arrived and Troop76 took the Fallen Heroes to a Geofest held there this past weekend. I have copied and pasted their response below:

 

3/27/2010 Troop76 posted a note for In Honor of Sgt. Lonnie C. Allen Jr.

kdlutz41 graciously sent us this coin to release in Japan. We released it at the Tara Mtn geofest. We will post photos soon.

 

3/27/2010 YASOO8133 grabbed In Honor of Sgt. Lonnie C. Allen Jr. from

grabbed @ tara mountain geofest.

 

3/7/2010 Soloban discovered In Honor of Sgt. Lonnie C. Allen Jr.

Saw this in the hands of the Scouts of Troop 76 at the Tara Mtn Geofest.

 

12/28/2009 kdlutz41 posted a note for In Honor of Sgt. Lonnie C. Allen Jr.

I purchased 4 of the Fallen Heroes Geocoins, and gave to my great neice and great nephew's for Christmas...I sent this coin to Troop76..

 

I also sent them them Mimbres 2.0 Geocoin...

I look forward to seeing the pictures and I will post here also. :D

My fiancee and I are brand new to geocaching, and we really want to send some coins out to watch them travel, but with both of us in school full time and planning a wedding, we can't afford any. If anyone has any left, we would love to adopt some. We will definitely repay the opportunity when we can.

 

I actually heard about geocaching from a friend and thought it was the perfect thing for the fiancee and I do to. It would get us outside (away from the non stop studying) doing something fun and it would be a semi-cheap date idea, since we are strapped for cash. We are using the Iphone right now, but my father said we could pick out the GPS we want and he would either pay for all or part of it (depending on how extravagant we get) as part as our wedding gift. Actually there was more to it... he said we couldn't get my mother involved with geocaching because according to him, she has too many hobbies already. Lol, but we can't wait to get out and do more Geocaching.
