5 years, and only slightly worn.. Smile

The purpose of the site is to track US bills ($1 is most common, although it will track any US paper bills). When you get a bill marked with Where's George, you go to the website, enter in your zip code, serial number of the bill, and year of the bill. It then builds a history of the bill similar to KB's bill.

You can also stamp your own bills and enter them into the site, and then send them out into the wild for others to log.

When we were caching in Kansas City- we just lucked into a string of caches where someone had left a GEORGE bill in each cache and they were sequenchel in number- I logged them all in, but haven't gone back to the site for ages- hey- got rain inthe Cities? Wonder how many caches will be flooded out of this storm. We are still predicted to get snow in the next couple of days- I suppose this should be a new topic-huh?

Hey, I found one of these dollars in a cache the other day. Grabbed it, logged it, and then dropped it off yesterday at Victoria Too (GCQRKH). Kind of a cool deal.

You also can spend the dollars and see where they go via consumerizm.

Yeah, I read about spending them on the website, but hey those fit really good in micro caches, and I remembered I had it in my pocket.... Maybe next time I will splurge on myself with the buck Wink

THANKS a lot Moe. NOW you got me all fired up again. I really have to tone down my comments here. Hank is a f. jerk, I've battled him three times over petty s.

NOW I remember why I avoid the forum.

I read most of the first three pages, and skimmed the rest. I believe I am the culprit cited in Example 2. Thanks to Pto for "assuming" a Minnesota cacher was involved.

Here is my travel bug that caused problems. I did NOT threaten lawsuits, so it must have been someone in Arizona.

Hank, I used to be *Metro Transit* on your site. Recently I changed my name to *King Boreas*

I am not arguing the "image" issue either. I've gotten over the death of this bill.

I don't remember your words about Wild George upthread, but I think they were not appropriate. It truly was an honest mistake, IMHO.


NOW, can you give me a link, or explain how activity like this is allowed:
