Usually discovering a geocoin is a cause for celebration – and doing a little happy dance.
But in this case… I found the geocoin in my garage in a box of random things. See, I’m packing my house to move so I’ve been digging through my “just scoop the stuff into this box and I’ll deal with it later” boxes (yes boxes!) so I peeked inside and… TWO geocoins were winking up at me from inside.
Damn! I feel terrible – I have NO idea how long I’ve had them. AND I know somebody, somewhere is bummed ‘cause they’ve gone missing.
Normally my motto is that if I’m not going to move a geocoin along within a week, I DON’T take it! And I give that advice to friends and newbie cachers as well.
After all, there are lots of geocachers who only cache once a month or less. It’s better to “discover” the coin but not actually remove it from the cache if it’s going to hang out in your garage for a month.
