Pay it Forward Geocoin Adoptions

Recommended Posts

FYI, If anyone wants to release coins into the wild and adopt them out, take the coins to large events and find someone who lives overseas and will take your coins to place in caches. I rarely have any go missing if I release them that way. :huh:

I would be happy to adopt a coin! I am new to the sport and have only found a few travelling items, and would love to start one myself, but haven't been able to purchase one yet.

I have three coins for adoption.

 

I think the next two members that posted are LSTrailRunner and RebelGTP. Could you please contact me with info on which cache you'd like the coin to travel to? After that, I'll send adoption requests.

 

The third coin is an old German coin. I would like to adopt this one to someone in Germany. German members that are interested, and don't own more than 5 coins, please speak up!

I adopted a coin beginning of April but it still says it's in the hands of the original owner. Is there something else I need to do or have they just not placed it in a cache yet? I can wait if they haven't been caching but just want to make sure there isn't something I am supposed to do first.

 

thanks,

k

If it's owned by you but still in their hands, the next step is for them to just to place it in a cache :)

 

Mine is still in the hands of the adopter as well, it's a patience tester, I tell you!!

If any more become available I would love to adopt one. I am new to this and have a friend who has been doing this for a month and has found several items. He is working on getting me hooked on this hobby, like he is.

 

Thanks

Coins have been adopted to LSTrailRunner and KPA2.

 

No Germans have showed up for the German coin. Is anyone else interested in adopting a German coin, to travel from Norway? The first one to request it in this thread, AND who owns maximum 3 geocoins, will get it.

I own 1 bought and 2 adopted coins and some Cow trackables and I am from Germany. If that is OK for you, I really like to adopt the german coin !

 

Meanwhile I will try to buy some coins to pay it forward to some new cachers in this thread.

L_Y_H, of course I'll adopt the coin to you! Could you e-mail me through my profile, with info about which cache you would like the coin to travel to?

I'd love to adopt a coin. I'm new to geocaching and don't have any coins yet. I'm located in Oklahoma.

Wow - I had to find this thread on the THIRD PAGE of these forums! I am surprised, especially since I know that more than fifty people have received coins through this thread THIS YEAR and are eager to pay it forward and offer some up themselves. Yeah. Man.

 

As for the most recent batch of 20 coins I offered and adopted out, I must apologize to those who have yet to see their coins move. Circumstances well beyond my control took me away from caching for over a month, as you can tell if you check out my profile at all. However, I always kept the coins safe and have been making an effort to place them in a cache. Not just any cache, though. If any of you have traveled to a geocache in hopes of picking up a geocoin or a TB only to be disappointed at the total absence of trackables, then you know that some caches are better than others when it comes to promoting trackable longevity! As a result, I've tried to avoid "hotels" that aren't premium-member-only, caches with a recent history of muggling, caches that are visited TOO much, and caches that are so remote they only receive a few finds a year.

 

Anyway, there are no guarantees in geocaching, but I hope most of these coins if not all get some miles. Here is the list of the 20 coins I adopted out and their status: in a cache OR still with me. I plan on dropping all of them by mid-July. I know some of you are watching patiently, so no need to tell you to keep your eyes peeled!

Penny and Kona, I have never owned a GeoCoin. I would like to purchase but still unsure where to go. Do I qualify for adoption? If not, what is everyone's favorite site/store to purchase GC's?

 

Just an update that my adopted coin, placed last year finally made it to it's destination this week!

Excellent! Of the many coins I've adopted out, yours is the second that I know of that has arrived to meet its new owner. Very cool - thank you for sharing. Happy caching, and remember to pay it forward when you can!

We wouldn't mind adopting one. It sounds pretty cool. My kids each got me a coin for Father's Day and I keep them with me at all times, they would be pretty upset if one of them got muggled, so we'll just bring them to events. But adopting one sounds right up our alley...

Huge thanks to L_Y_H for the coin, I see it has already been picked up and on to somewhere else.

And sometime, hopefully in the not too distant future, I will also be happy to pay it forward.

Still have 2 micro coins left over for adoption. Please mail me, if you have interest in adopting a coin and include a cache that you want the micro to travel to.

 

I'm going on holidays this week, so hurry so that I can release the 2 coins during the holidays.

While I have released a trackable here in the UK, I would love to adopt a coin being released elsewhere like in the US to follow its travels on a different continent.

 

I did rather lose track of who was offering up coins to release and who was on any waiting lists, but I would love to put my name down if there are any currently up for adoption.
