Butterfly Migration 2010-2011

Recommended Posts

Dropped down from #1 to #4. BUT.....

My coin is in hands of Zork V who traveled from Ireland through California to North Island, New Zealand.

He dipped it in several caches. Added up that makes about 12,000 miles. So when he drops it... :rolleyes:

Has anyone else looked at the leader TB3PNEY?

 

I can't make any since of how it moved around the way it did when according to his profile Zork V wasn't at Geocoinfest.

 

9/7 Placed in Geocoinfest 2010 - Twin Cities

9/14 Zork V took it to The Wonder of Spring #3 (Albany, Auckland) North Island, New Zealand - 8,032.66 miles

9/25 Windsockers retrieved it from Geocoinfest 2010 - Twin Cities Minnesota

10/2 Windsockers placed it in Ardgillan I Leinster, Ireland - 11,271.26 miles

10/12 Zork V retrieved it from Ardgillan I Leinster, Ireland

10/12 Zork V took it to Merrion Square Dublin, Ireland - 17.14 miles

10/14 Zork V took it to LAX's Money Pit California - 5,171.12 miles

The Event that Zork V "took it to" on 9/14 doesn't take place till 7 November. That doesn't make any since.

 

According to Zork V's profile he as never been to the cache called "Ardgillan I" where he retrieved it on 10/12. Did he forget to log it?

E-mail sent to Shilo to investigate.

 

I obviously overlooked something here. I will look at it when I get home today.

 

The event log looks like it needs to be deleted if the event hasn't been held yet ;)

This is why I hate not getting 'took' logs.

 

I was wondering what event you all were talking about. It's on the first page!!! I never looked way back on page one yesterday. Why would I? Obviously the log date is wrong and the event hasn't happened yet.

 

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I need to watch things closer until Groundspeak fixes the 'took' log issue, if they are ever going to.

It looks to me like he logged a 'Will Attend' and did a visit with the bug at that time. Funny that GS gives mileage credit for the visit at that time. (It doesn't really make sense to be able to do a VISIT log on a WILL ATTEND).

 

I also noticed that on LAX's Money Pit he logged a Write Note rather than a Discovered, and did a visit there as well. It is a traditional cache, I think he was actually there, but he had been there before. So that would violate rule 2.

Hi guys,

I have deleted the log myself. Luckily I was wondering about the standings and checked in here.

To my surprise I saw the discussion that was going on here.

Next time just ask me. I really don't bite :rolleyes:

Now I have to inform ZorkV of the log-deletion.

 

Edit to add correct mileage: 15 431.94 miles

E-mail sent to the owner about the above.

 

But other than that the standings have been corrected and updated.

That log has been deleted as well. It didn;t do much to the mileage since he took it to The Strand in California as well.

Thanks for keeping an eye on my coin :D

I hope the coin will make it back to Cologne in time.

One of mine has been archived, and the other has never moved. Totally vying for last place!! Firefly03 is the only one standing between me and the loser slot (of highest percentage of coins not moved at 100%!)

thanks for the update.

 

well I hope that my butterflies, both of them, will make it to our great GCF2011 EU in August.

It would be great. Nevermind of the standings.

A couple of weeks ago, I was able to get back a coin which I released into the GC-World in august 2006.

But it did only 5440km/3380 mi.

I lost quite a few of my coins, but luckily this one came back to me. ..my little sock puppet!

 

Good luck to all and great competition.

Until next GCF2011 EU I will have to think about something donating.

I heard that my Butterfly was going to return to North America in the next few weeks. I expect a large move on the mileage at that point.

I want to appoligize to all who participate in this race. My coin is in first place in the Mileage Standings. But it has been done by 2 cachers. The second cacher is taking it all over New Zealand. I tried to contact him several times but he never responded.

Fortunately it has been grabbed by another cacher on 12-12. He says he will take it to Hawaii. Hopefully it will start traveling as it is supposed to do.

I don't think you need to apologize ... he is racking up the mileage, go buddy go!! Mine went through a 'dipping' phase as well, I think it is fine as long as the cacher is finding new caches with it.

It went to Hawaii and now headed to the UK!!

 

Only 1 placement since Sunday and it was to our leader in the mileage category. :)

 

Guess its the winter weather keeping movements down to a trickle.

I hope the coin will make it from the UK to the mainland of Europe. Perhaps then it can travel to Köln.

TB3PNDR 2nd place AJ-104 was muggeled. To bad the little guy (my grandson)was real excited when he went into 2nd place. Good luck to all the other racers.

Pretty slow this past week. All the updates were in the bottom half of the standings. Some racers who haven't been moved for a few months are finally moving or at least out in a cache now.

And my #1 racer went from missing to back in action :) This makes me very happy!
