Very Happy Beat this one. After 7 years, and almost 4 months my Steves CROCed TB is back and has been placed. Very Happy Question
Wonder if the batteries are still good in him? He did talk.


The next finder of the cache it was placed in didnt see this TB but since then it has moved twice so it is traveling once more.
The long holder of it did e-mail me back when he picked him up in 02 and told me he was going to try and meet with Steve Irwin and have him sign the TB and a few pictures with him but then????

Yikes, that would be quite a collectible.

This guy just grabbed one of my coins. I understand that the coins will tend to disappear over time, but bragging about it makes a jerk move into a bigger jerk move.

Have you contacted them to see if they would move it. They seem like they are newer cachers and may not know that they are supposed to move.

I take it you didn't see this in their profile:

Profile Information:
If you found this page, you know what we do. Your swag is ours now. Any and all trackable items found by us belong to us. But do not despair, you will have a chance to recover what you have lost. When we have pillaged enough caches to satisfy ourselves, you will have the opportunity to engage in the most difficult treasure hunt that Southern California has ever seen. Until we are satisfied, we will continue to loot caches as we see fit.

If this account is deleted, we will not only loot caches, but destroy them as well, and you will never see your trackable items again.

If you look at their one and only hide you'll see they are gathering trackables to place in the final of their multi. Glad they're in California!

just cause of reading this thread, I emailed a guy who's had one of my TBs since 2006, he said he was going to move it along.

heh, we'll see if that actually happens.



the rest of them are all long gone.

The cache owner that grabbed my coin kindly packaged it up and sent it to me. I will cherish it here for a while and will then eventually place it back into the wild.
