Just found out about this latest giveaway.

Interesting to have a GPSr combined with a metal detector. Wouldn't want to carry that on long hikes though but I already have shoulder problems which makes carrying anything for very long a little difficult.

Time to get the creative juices flowing. We seen GPSr's attached to vehicles, shoes and now metal detectors.

What's next, and how can HGCS (and me) make money inventing it? In the brim of your hat, where you could see which way to go by glancing up and it could also pick up a better signal and some solar power?

And a quick google search shows the 2 yr old skyKap for $300 and with voice directions to boot. If it works on the golf course it should work in the woods with a good enough antenna.

I'm in. I'm not sure exactly what they are expecting me to do, but I'm drawn by free stuff like a Democrat at a free hotdog line...

Hopefully the 10 I ordered will arrive soon!

I'll just wait until I see yours in caches then take a few of those for myself. Since you have so many you surely won't mind.

Mine arrived today. Finally, I'm not the last one to get their coin! There were two coins -- A nice 1-1/2" dia. coin with no tracking number and a 15/16" mini-coin WITH the tracking number. I'll release the mini coin and put the bigger one in my collection (with tracking number of the mini-coin noted) to be discovered. O0

I got mine and I am not sure if I am going to follow HC's lead, but probably, since he is my mentor.

I kept the large Mine Labs coin for my collection (with serial number noted on paper) and sent the little trackable coin out a few days ago.

Mine arrived today. It will probably go out this weekend. Maybe I should drop it in a cache along the Lone Star Trail--perhaps that will lure some of you up to see the fine series of caches my wife put out... :angel:

Mom sent it to me, she said she could not read the coin number to activate it so she let me have it...yes an early stocking stuffer Kenny!!

I recently got one of the mine labs geocoins. When I lived in Michigan, I reglarly used a metal detector to find ammo cans in the snow in the woods during the winter. A lot of fond memories snow shoeing with my dog in the woods to search for geocaches. A great combo to have up there!
