I'm like Jesus in the Big Lebowski and the bowling ball.


Ummmm, do you have one of those signs in your yard too?

HC - I haven't run into you since you offered these up. I guess I'd like to go ahead and get mine mailed. Unless you are going to LogDawg's event next Wednesday.

Sorry, I'm in Ohio through Monday (watching the wife run 26.2 miles). I plan on going to the SETX Octoberfest event at Lake Livingston SP next month.

I took Baytown Bert's Houston Control HGCS geocoin with me on my recent cruise. I then dropped it off with a German Cacher headed for a 19 country tour. Should be fun.

I released 27 of the coins in my HGCS People: series -- each named after a long-time HGCS member.  They've been traveling for 6 months or so and some have moved quite a bit.  HGCS People: PARKERPLUS is in Korea and HGCS People: WTT-B2 is in The Netherlands.  Others have spread out across the US and Canada, though a clump still remain in the Houston area.  Several have already gone missing.  Of the 27, 7 currently reside in the hands of cachers with an average of 16 finds each.  Most of those were picked up as their first or second trackable ever and they quit caching shortly thereafter.  For one cacher, it was his first and only find!  I've sent emails to all of them, but based on past experience, I don't hold out much hope of success.

 

Here's a map showing the coins' current or last known location:

Gosh, I hate when the coins go missing.  Great map of the geocoins traveling the area!!  Do you include the coins that people buy from you as well?  I have released a few.

Nah, this is just a map of the HGCS People coins I released.  I sure wish newbies wouldn't grab coins out of caches if they're not going to stick with it.  6 coins are in the hands of cachers with less than 20 finds and who haven't logged in in months.

I feel honored to have a HGCS coin in my name! I had no idea. The coin is in the hands of a cacher in Mississippi.

It looks like the one in our name is one of the ones that is in the hands of a newbie, but it did get some decent miles first.

24 hours since I sent 7 or 8 emails to cachers about the coins and not a single reply.  :(
