Speaking of coins: next week, I'll be dropping my 50th active coin into a Twin Cities cache, all roughly over the course of the past month. This completes my first goal in coin seeding! Now, it's on to the next. Smile

I'm looking for a volunteer or two that is willing to drop activated coins in other areas of the state: specifically Duluth and north, and a very small number in Rochester and the south. Heck, West would be great too! In other words, any place out of the metro area.

If you're willing to help me out, please drop me an e-mail or PM, and I'll mail ya a coin or two or three, depending on how much time you have to do drops.

Many thanks in advance, much obliged!

-Ken

I'm going to the Iowa Event on Friday, if we can meet up, I'm happy to take a coin or TB with me (this offer is open to anyone wanting to move something).

Hey there, thanks for the note! I think Friday will be too soon for me, but I really appreciate the offer...thanks! Next time you're traveling, let me know, and I'm sure we can work something out. Smile

For the rest, I now officially have the West side covered (2 cachers, ~5 coins) and Duluth/North covered (3 cachers, 10-12 coins). In a couple of weeks I'm hoping someone can run a pair to Rochester, please continue to e-mail or pm me if ya want - many thanks as always for the quick replies, y'all are the best!

Hey Ken - You can always find out where I'm headed if you'd like. I'll be in Anchorage tomorrow and again next weekend, I'll also be in Honolulu in June. Various other places as well. I'd be happy to move coins for you if you'd like.

LOL Jim, @#$$ the coins, take ME to Honolulu in June!! Smile

Thx, I'll definitely check in with you, as always I appreciate it. Is it a bad thing if you're jealous of a TB/coin? That can't be healthy...

I'll be taking a road trip this weekend to Cali and I'll be able to drop coins in any of the states I go through.

I think in this order... MN, IA, NE, WY, UT, NV to CA. Let me know if any of these states sound appealing enough for a coin release.

I would offer to take one or two out to WY with me this summer, but then it would just eventually fall into the hands of those rabid UT coin collectors Shocked LOL

I'm heading to Washington State, Vancouver Canada, and Alaska at the end of July if you want me to take a few that way.

LOL Centris, ya gotta be quick - I dropped two about 10 days ago, one in Andover and one in the Elm Creek Preserve...and both were picked up within a day. And a third one sat in Andover for 3 days, until Iron Man Dan picked it up today! I've finally assembled 12 coins for Duluth, they're on their way out the door tomorrow. The Western MN coins are already gone and in the volunteer cacher's possession out west. And I handed my last two "local" coins to Gilby today while caching - gimme a couple of days, and I'll run a "Definitive Series" geocoin and another one of your choice (send me your preference) directly to Anoka and drop them there next week. You know you get special treatment from me! Wink

Dave, I'll find ya at the picnic in June if that's ok - I definitely want to send one to BC, and will pr'bly give you a handful if that's ok. I'll be in Seattle July 21-30, if you're there too you're welcome to swing by my parents house in Bellevue for some Chinese food with me and the fam! (We'll need you to control the kids anyway! Or is that control the parents??)

GP, Lucid, and everyone else - huge thanks as always, I'll definitely see what I can do to get something into your hands soon. I'll miss Lucid's trip for sure, but will put a few aside for "emergency reserve". Smile THANKS everyone! Smile

I'll be heading up to the park rapids area sometime in July. If anyone has coins or TB that want to go north, let me know.
