(Like a paypal acct or an address where people can send their wedding gift money to?) Maybe I can meet up with them when I go out to replace the cache and give the gift at that time. Great idea folks!!!

You could bid for the GPS on ebay, then post the auction link here. That way, all involved could see the final price with shipping.

 

I'll chip in too, let me know...

I can't believe how nice you guys are .. even that you would have thought of doing that is mind boggling. I am definately interested in getting into it, and as flattered and touched as I am that you are all willing to do something like this... I think to promote your sport, perhaps the donations could be used to somehow get the word out to more people! Perhaps someone who knows alot about it could put an ad in some major papers and direct people to the web site ??? I will gladly however take the offer of going along with someone at some point to see how its done and learn from someone who knows the ins and outs !!!!

 

Again, thank you so much for your warm thoughts and wishes !!! My faith in human nature has been restored and that in itself, is MORE than enough of a wedding present !!!

I think I speak for the majority of geocachers when I say we want quality not quantity. Besides I expect posted pictures and a log of your first geocaching expedition using your GPS.

Paypal to Dustyjacket is good for me. Can you two get together on it?

As soon as I get a response from drpepper, we can proceed. He may have a paypal account all set up.

 

If not, we can use mine - I have a PayPal debit card that would allow a purchase from any store, in addition to eBay.

 

(Before anyone objects, yes I get a 1% cash back using the debit card, but I will also be paying over 2.3% on each donation out of my pocket. The full donation amount will go towards the GPS.)

 

If he wants to do a straight purchase, then I can collect donation in PayPal and pay him for his purchase. I am flexible.

 

Yes, let's move on this.

Hey guys....I think the easiest way for me to do this is paypal. I set up a special email for this. You can send to gpsweddinggift@hotmail.com.

 

Please be sure to include your name and email in the additional comments when you send your gift money so I can include it on a card!

 

Of course if you dont have paypal, please email me and I will give you my snail mail address.

 

Thanks to those who have already contacted me. I will email those who contacted me with this information as well.

 

So far we dont have quite enough for a yellow etrex...but hopefully we will have enough soon.

 

Thanks everyone!!!

I was going to send the money snail-mail, but some of you have got your panties in a bunch and want it right now, so I set up a pay pal account and sent in $6.

 

If we wait a little bit until all of the money rolls in maybe we'll be able to get them something nicer than an etrex, but if that's all we get, then that's all we get.

Dersu sent his PAYPAL $10.00plus contribution.

Thanks Drpepper for your effort in this.

Well, I am sitting here ... one hand of wet nails, a towel on my head.... less than an hour and a half till we have to head to Dave's mom's house and I still felt compelled to check up on you crazy people ! lol Even though I still reiterate that this totally... TOTALLY isn't necessary I would like to say that what I see on this site warms my heart completely... people who do not even know each other reaching out and doing something so nice for someone else... IF nothing else about the sport interested me.. I would be drawn to it JUST for the type of people that it seems to attract... again.. I really do not know what to say except thank you ... all of you... and if everyone treated everyone this way... the world would be a much better place for it.

 

I have to run now... people are waiting and I can't wait to start the rest of my life with my son and my new (wonderful) husband !!

 

Have a stupendous day everyone ~ I know I will !

Unless it is a superkid they're probably near that cache in Kansas icon_wink.gif

It is new, the guy's feedback is perfect, and the price is right. What's the problem?

I just wanted to let you guys know.. that my son Jake has been shown this site and I think the best thing to come out of all this is that he learned that HONESTY also has its rewards .... for that I thank you all !!! there is no way just telling him that could have driven the point home the way seeing this thread could have... so again, I have to thank you all =)
