I had my Rackateer Geocoin reappear after 7 months.  I gave it to somebody at the 12-12-12 12:12 event.  Never got logged, and was officially still at the event.  I had given up on it.  Then over the weekend I got an e-mail saying somebody had picked it up at McKinney Falls, and will be dropping it at Pedernales Falls next week.

I carried my Rackateer Coin around for quite a while until finally dropping it in my Peaceful Hills cache near Fredericksburg.  Several cachers discovered it, but left it in the cache.  Then it was picked up by someone with 2 finds who has never logged into GC.com since and won't respond to emails.  :tickedoff:

My chicken TB was picked up in Honduras 3/29/10.  Today the guy who picked it up placed it in Virginia, and then Panama.  Hmmm. Who knows if he still has it or not and just hasn't retrieved it.  But it's moved.  Only took him 3+ years.  But, now, if it doesn't move in the next 3 years I'm sending him a sternly worded e-mail.  :knuppel2:

Well here is one of my daughters Travel Bugs http://www.geocachin...cker=TB1F18D#, that she released 6 years ago when we started caching, it lasted less than a week. Now over 6 years later it resurfaced.

I thought I dropped one off in a cache in Virginia on 9/29/08, but it went missing.  Fast forward to 8/06/13, and a cacher found it at a Garage Sale in Illinois.


Still trying to figure out  don't like this new forum style.

One of mine (that is really my daughter's), just made an appearance after three years in silence:

Picked this up from a geo buddy that has been away from the area for a bit. will move this along today.

The last cacher who said he took your geocoin only marked it as "discovered". Maybe he needs a little nudge. It is definitly not in the cache.
48.png 07/04/2010 EBlack1981 discovered it   Visit Log
Picked it up from Doxie Moxie (GC298AG) in the Wetlands of Ellison park in the suburbs of Rochester Ny. Will move it a long and log it once I drop it.

My Blue Switch Geocoin finally started moving again after 3+ years.  Emails to the holder went unanswered, but at least he didn't lose the coin.  Well, that's assuming he really did drop the coin in the cache it shows to be in...

I think Blindzman who found a cache yesterday for the first time since 9/2008 with 4 geocoins in it probably will get some good emails from those owners.

The cache you linked to was archived in 2011.  Could it have been a different cachee?

Archived in 08 but maintenance done by CO.  His note on FB

 

I went to another archived cache today and found it along with and unactivated dog tag and 4 geocoin's. I am sending an email to the owner of the coins to see what he wants me to do with them.

Yea, and supposedly found in 2014? interesting development, I would've thought that when you archive a cache you also remove all physical evidence.

One of my HGCS People geocoins was retrieved yesterday from the event it was dropped into in December of 2012.  Seriously?  14 months to log a trackable as retrieved from an event?

 

If you don't know how trackables work, keep your mitts off of them!  :knuppel2:

I'm hoping that will happen with my TB that Brent dropped in the Texas Challenge last year, but it's still MIA

Perhaps the person didn't get it from the event that it was logged in but actually got it from one of the many TB hoarders that carry around a lot of TBs at events to trade that had forgotten to log a TB and they gave it to someone who was actually doing what they were supposed to and logged it out of the event that it had been logged in for quite some time.   You can't always plan the person that is finally logging the TB.  Sometimes it just looks like they were at fault and they are just catching the TB/geocoin up when they finally get it.

Good point.  My comment still applies, but just not necessarily to the current holder of the coin.  I never really understood the concept of carrying around a trove of other people's stuff to "trade" at events.  "I'll give you one of these things (that don't belong to me), but only if you give me one in return".  :crazy2:

One of my first trackables, Bonsly Travel Bug, just resurfaced after 4 years!    :cheers:  Some newbie in France picked it up and must have forgotten about it. Today I received this log:  "Retrouve! Je le cache tres vite!"    Translation: "Found! I hide it very quickly!"   

 

Let's hope so.
