I found a new cache (that is, new to me) that was big enough for a travel bug, so I dropped it off. :coolsmiley: And the good news for you is that you haven't found it yet... O0

I never really signed up for a coin, but did go to the site posted above. I was very surprised yesterday when a coin showed up in my mailbox. :)

I dropped mine in a cache, and I picked them back up. I figure that counts, and the main idea is that the get seen by fellow cachers. I think taking them to events will show more people. And if JG wants to come bang on my door and demand them back, well then he can do so.

My Racketeers Local 999.9 event just published! http://coord.info/GC3YWY0

Let's get as many coins there as possible and do some photo ops! If you have a "racketeerish" hat, bring it for the photo.

If you need to get your coin into a cache within the 10 days after receiving it, you can drop it in this event. Leave it there or grab it back to get some miles before the event.

November 3rd

Beck's Prime

1822 Texas 6

Sugar Land, Texas 77478

6PM to 9PM

Snoogans, can you post the picture (here or on the event page) you took Monday of all the coins at the BreakCache event?

TravelingGeek - Great idea for an event! I will try to make it!

Dangerkitties and I went to Austin this weekend to get Necropolis of Britannia Manor III and I took a pic while there.

(I can't figure out how to put a picture in here. I tried using a url, but that didn't work. I do know how to put a link though!)

Link to my picture!

If you want.... :notme:you can vote for my picture on Facebook! :) Here is this link!

Mine came in the mail. Evidently it came while Anne was in the hospital and it get set into the junk mail pile and almost got trashed. Anyway I was able to retrieve it.

I got John Grisham himself to pose with my coin. Did I mention that I got the GIANT version of the coin?

My coin went MIA in the first cache.

I just read the book.  I wasn't impressed, but it explains the coin.

Reviving an old topic... my coin is long gone; picked up by a newbie cacher with 2 finds out of the first cache I placed it in (who has never logged into geocaching.com since and won't respond to emails).  Maybe I should have kept it and sent out a proxy.

 

On another note -- I picked up a paperback copy of The Rackateer at a thrift store in Fredericksburg today for 25 cents.

24F and a light wintry mix at the B&B this morning.  Probably won't get much work done on the "ranch" today.  Think I'll sit by the fire and read instead.
