It makes me laugh when I look through the list of those little pieces of advertising that were released in our fine state. Everyone was up in arms over people who said that they were displeased with their introduction into our ecosystem and that people just wanted to enjoy them. Yet most of these Jeeps haven't moved an inch since they were dropped (see here).

I have seen a couple myself but I haven't logged any as found (and I won't at anytime). I just find it awfully sad that all these people were upset over the fact that they were going to get dropped and could possibly "disappear" yet most haven't done anything but make them do just that.

Looks like a bunch of them are still in MNGCA's hands!!!!!

I think they need to be passed out to others to help them get out in the state.....maybe an quick event....

I'm suprised they didn't all get distributed at the last breakfest.

This is something that I don't mind. I understand that there are people outside of the metro that should get a bunch to spread there. I also understand that a large number of the jeeps had invalid activation codes and that the MNGCA account had to wait for the correct ones before enabling them. I don't hold those that were spreading them for the MNGCA accountable.

OTOH, the people that immediately went out and grabbed the TB and are *still* holding it are the ones that the Jeep/Jod fans should be concerned about.

Awww c'mon, I'm sure they are just being saved for those "really special" caches that people are planning on visiting soon, right? Wink

Exactly...I'm saving one to drop off in my "1000th find". That shouldn't take more than a week, right? Laughing
