Pay it Forward Geocoin Adoptions

Recommended Posts

The coin i adopted by penny and kona TB2M4E6 haven´t travelled for a long time. It is now in the hands of a cacher since 10/11/2010 - i have written several mails with no result. I´m very sad about it... :(

 

But i wish all other adopted coins very very nice caches and a good trip! :D

I finally have a geocoin up for adoption. It's a hockey shirt with "Whitebear" on the back. It will be starting from a cache in Norway. If you've got no coin of your own and would like to adopt this one, please introduce yourself by PM.

The coin mentioned above is still not spoken for. I'd be happy to adopt it over to someone who wants to get an introduction to the world of geocoins.

Updating list of recipients for my first donation to the "Pay It Forward" adoption mission - welcome (back?) Team_Merchlinsky!

2. mekk

3. all Wright

4. KarateNeko2

5. DrGreenLeaf

6. TheKritters

7. FunkMaster-T (adoption will be sent to "HandsomeBoys" )

8. maxime81

9. Team_Merchlinsky

 

Thank u for the welcome back yes it is us the merchlinskys :( we are getting back in to the swing of things but as every one knows it can time time and thanks for the adopt :D

 

I stumbled across this today and thought I would post it here as proof that some geocoins DO fulfill their missions, thanks to conscientious geocachers!

 

I adopted a geocoin (TB222WV) to Team_Merchlinsky last year and it arrived close to them in just over THREE months. Really fantastic, even for any trackable. I'm sure they'll "pay it forward" when their able, but I thought anyone else who has received a coin in this thread would appreciate this.

 

Happy caching, everyone!

Maybe you could send them a adoption request to the person holding the coin. They may not respond to that either, but it wouldn't hurt to try. :)

After asking several times for putting the coin into a cache, it´s traveling now again. ;D

mamoreb- if no one else has contacted you...We love trackables at our house. I would be honored to adopt it.

 

I saw that the coin scificollector adopted to you (TB3GDHN) in this thread actually made it to you guys - congratulations! This would be fun to post in the "Geocoin arrived where it wanted to go" thread, HERE.

 

Have you had a chance to "pay it forward?"

 

Updated list...

Ive got this one...

This coin is especially true for young girls. My twins absolutely love this coin and I figured it was time to pass this forward to someone else. Enjoy the coin.

 

Adoption sent on 7/30/10

 

Thank you scificollector! You have made our day! I will pay it forward probably in Nov. (the NC Fall Fling is near our house this year.) I'm hoping to collect some goodies there.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOps!

 

My bad. You are spot-on, Little Miss Muffet! :anicute:

 

I would love to adopt a coin!

 

I have started one coin and two bugs here in Norway, but they move pretty slowly, I guess especially due to winter time. It would be fun to follow a coin released in another part of the world!

 

I can start my coin for you here, if you like?

 

Thank you so much, I'm very excited! :) I wrote you a message through geocaching.com.

 

Mamoreb adopted this coin today TB38CYY I'm excited to see if it ever makes it to its new home.

 

Thank you for starting this thread 14 pages ago. I have received a coin and sent a coin out thru it. B)

It's time for me to get some spring cleaning accomplished, so I have another 20 coins available for the "pay it forward" adoption. I would prefer to adopt these coins over to someone who has NOT participated in this thread already, and who have few or no trackables already.

 

If you want specifics on how this works, please see Tennessee Jed's post #1 at the very beginning of this thread.

I would like to adopt a travelling coin. Not sure if I just post here, or send a PM. New to geocaching boards, I have a very small coin collection, but nothing that is travelling yet. Would like to have that experience. :)

DONE!

 

dufzor is the lucky recipient of the first of my 20 geocoins up for adoption! The adoption request has been sent, and once I receive confirmation about its mission, I will place it in a cache.

We would love to adopt a coin! We are very new to geocaching.We have located two travel bugs, but have yet to see a real coin. I know my little boy would be excited to know he was a part of a coin traveling around. He has already picked out and named a shark travel bug that he wants me to get him, so hopefully someday soon we can get that for him. Right now we are working on saving for a GPS.

 

Thank you Little Miss Muffet for showing me this thread, you have been very kind and helpful in getting us started geocaching. :anicute:

i had the honors of finding and moving an adopted geocoin (CITO) and i was interested in knowing what this adoption thing was about :unsure: well i bought my daughter Kiara our first coin (purple butterfly) which she placed in some cache (unactivated) and lost it. we ended up being able to get the tracking number from a friend who had written it down and we activated it but she never saw it again :( so with that said i would love to adopt a coin for her. She is 5 and a typical girly girl... Maybe we get lucky here... ;)

I'd like to adopt a geocoin! I'm pretty new to geocaching. I got 2 finds last summer and recently got back into it. I found on cache and half of a multi-cache a few days ago. I have a a travel bug that travels with me and I picked up my first the other day. I'm planning to leave it in a cache near an airport because it wants to go to Europe. I'd love to have a geocoin to watch as it travels!

I guess i'm in a long list that would love to adopt a geocoin. I love trackables, and especially ones with history and good stories like this. I will watch this topic to hopefully get a nice coin as an adoption.

Recent requests for coins have been received! I've added everyone's name to the list and will send adoption requests later on this evening.

 

For those of you who have been around a while, I hope you enjoy watching your coin travel.

 

For those of you who are new to geocaching AND who have picked up trackables in your first few caches, I hope you will follow the guidelines and keep them moving. It may bring good karma to you and your travelling geocoin! Make sure you place your hometown in your geocaching.com profile, so I can set your coin's mission to travel to you.

Adoption Request Acceped

 

Thanks Penny and Kona! I can't wait to see my new geocoin travel. Hopefully it'll make it to my hometown. I'll be sure to pay it forward someday. :D

 

Here is this geocoins page if you want to watch it travel: TB2FEJ3

What a fabulous idea! If there's still room on the list, I'd like to adopt a coin.

 

Is there anything that I would need to do beyond watch it travel and maybe remind someone to keep it moving if it sits for too long?

My daughters would love to be able to track an adoptable coin. We've only been caching for about a month and each time we've tried to find a geocoin/TB to help on its way, the cache has come up empty. Please let us know what we have to do. Thanks!

Working on the most recent adoption requests! Coins have been selected...I am working on uploading photos for the coins' pages so the new owners can see what should be heading their way.

 

To those of you who have requested a coin, please make sure your profile is updated with your home location so I can set that coin's mission to travel to you. Once you accept the adoption request (will come later on today!), you can edit the pages as you like.

 

Congratulations, and remember to "pay it forward" when you can...

I would like to accept an adopted coin if possible. I would like to see how it works. I just started Geocaching last week, and have 5 cache's discovered. Been reading up on the coin game, and very interested what is going on with all this travel stuff and adopting out?

 

kini_ont (user here in the forums) was kind enough to put a coin in the mail for me, to start my collection! But if someone would adopt a coin to me so I can see travel, I would be grateful to you as well.

 

Thank you

Very new to Geocaching but would love to try a trackable if there is still one up for adoption. :-) We went on a hunt today and found 8 out of 9 we looked for, but no trackables. Thanks!

are we allowed to get adopted 2 geocoins at once?

 

I can only speak for the coins I'm willing to activate and adopt out. I am limiting mine to one coin per cacher, because it's about the gesture, about getting coins into the world, and about believing in this mission enough to do the same for someone else. It's not a "rule" per se, but that's how I'm operating!

 

If you really like geocoins and like to watch them travel, there are some very reasonably priced coins available right now at some of the approved vendors. The list of approved vendors is HERE. Scroll to the bottom and click on the "Geocoin Manufacturers and Resellers" website.

 

also if mine gets to me do i just come on here and see who wants to adopt it?

 

The coin is YOURS to do with as you like. If it arrives to you, you can keep it as part of your collection. If it arrives to you, you can change the mission and send it back out into the world to gather more miles. You can change the mission for it to go somewhere else right now, although the piece of paper with it will still have the old mission! Or, you can adopt it over right now if you want - totally up to you.
