As the more my souvenir page fills up, the more I think the entire idea is pretty lame. I mean, I am not rabid thinking I need to block it or anything but just leaning towards this idea being a complete waste of Groundspeak time (which of course they're free to waste).

I never understood the point.

Why do some people get them and others don't? I only have two and none are states.

I don't know. As far as I know the only states I've cached in that are issued, that I didn't get is Minnesota. I figure my Minnesota is still coming. But I haven't been following it that closely so there might be others I'm missing.

I REALLY fall into the camp of not caring about souvenirs.

That said, I got five emails today - AR, TX, WI, IA, and MN.

I'm still getting souvenirs but I haven't gotten any emails since Dec 14. Somehow they figured out that I don't care.

Perhaps any other states you have cached in have not been published yet.

And on top of it all I have to say I am totally underwhelmed by the Minnesota one. I agree, the more they roll out, the less I really care about them.

I just got my MN, IA, & WI ones last night. I haven't cached in IA or WI since over a year ago. Not sure why I just got them now.

They're boring and unimaginative. If they had used the graphics we sent them for the iphone apps they would have been interesting to have since they were uniquely created by someone FROM Minnesota and each state. Having the states that are all the same are lazy and create no excitement. I do like the ones from events or special caches.

You do know that you click on it and there is a different picture for each state.

If you click on the thumbnail you get a more interesting image as well as a small description of the state.

The northernmost of the contiguous states, Minnesota is home to both the United States' first indoor mall, Southdale Center, and largest mall, the Mall of America. Minnesotans are highly involved in outdoor activities, and Minnesota is therefore one of the healthiest states.


So of all Minnesota has to offer, the most interesting tidbit they can write about are malls. Not Headwaters of the Mississippi, BWCWA, North Shore, etc.

I'd suggest starting a new thread here and sere if the org can come up with something better and have the board present it to Groundspeak. The worst they can do is say no...
