Here's some info about Geocoins and how to track them:

http://www.geocaching.com/track/howtogeocoin.aspx

IF YOU DO NOT ACTIVATE YOUR COIN - YOU DON'T "OWN" IT! By activating your coin, it then becomes "YOURS" when out being picked up and dropped out in cache land! If you want to GIVE or SELL your coin to someone else DO NOT activate it, let the person you give it to activate it and they can select it's mission.

 oops.gif     It looks like if someone wants to keep they can. (I suppose if any one did any way theres nothing we can do about it). You made the coins too pretty. I would want to keep it I found it.   :unsure:

The etiquette is that they can keep it if it is thiers, meaning they own it. But if the tracking # is owned by someone else, and they tasked the coin to travel somewhere, then it is etiquette that whoever picked it from the cache needs to place it in another cache.

k I'm a geocaching noob. I've only done one geocache.  So explain to me the premise behind the geocoin. How do they work?  Keep in mind I barely know how geocaching itself works.

Thanks rockhounder and those that were involved for this coin. It looks great.

oops.gif     It looks like if someone wants to keep they can. (I suppose if any one did any way theres nothing we can do about it). You made the coins too pretty. I would want to keep it I found it.   :unsure:

I plan on keeping mine too, swede. I go to geocaching events from time to time, and I log it in and out of events to move it around. Also in the process allowing others to see it, (This is called "discovering" of trackables). They can log that they discovered it at the event I take it to.  Its actually pretty neat.

I am attempting to arrange the sending of a cache to Australia and have it placed and logged in and maybe one to the U.K. if Adi or someone else is interested ..., it's still a plan in the works. I suppose that's going to be somewhat of an unconventional approach to geocaching.

Its like a treasure hunt Ant only on a world wide scale. You use your GPS to find the exact spot on the earth to find the cache. They give you a close proximity to it and you go look. The thing is the log you sign. Its interesting to see how many people find these things and where their from.

Your supposed to find and move the trackable items and log them in geocashing.com so the original owner can see how far it has traveled.

 :) Ok, I activated the first coin on www.geocaching.com. To track this coin, go to TB1WEGC on the website. It's called "Rocky's WS geocoin #1". I haven't stashed it in a cache yet, but that may change today.
