Assorted Things To Share.
For those of you who set up events, or plan to, WorldCaching will give you a free coin for that event. There's only 200 made evidently, so the offer may be limited. It MIGHT actually be already over....dunno. And I'm sure they will require some sort of verification, like possibly being an officer of a geo-association:
Old Time Wooden Nickle Company will give ANYONE 4 free "Support Our Troops" tuits. They require you to send them a SASE, rather than just request them by e-mail & wire some postage money:
I'm not EXACTLY sure how this works, since I haven't read it thoroughly yet. But it seems you can put out a request to have one of your long-lost Travelers "rescued". I'm not sure yet if it can be an, "I don't know where my Love-Bug is, so will you find it for me?" ... or if it has to be a, "Love-Bug is stuck in the North Korean Unobtainable TB Prison & I need someone to sneak across the DMZ to get it for me."
I'm also assuming that you can peruse their site & choose captive Travelers in your caching location to rescue, then report when you have done so. I'm not sure if the suggested modus operandi is to keep them in possession until you receive instructions from the owner as to what he wants done ..... or to simply drop them in another more commonly visited cache. I assume the latter, but as I said, I haven't yet delved into the depths of the site.
I can see where the "Mine needs rescued" portion could be very useful for all of us with Travelers, when one of them gets thrown in a cache that isn't visited but once per decade. There MIGHT even be a method on here to put out alerts for Travelers which have actually gone completely missing.....whereabouts unknown. Not sure however.
And too, I can see where the "These bugs need rescued" portion could prove to be a very popular activity for those of us, like myself, who like to visit difficult caches. It would either give that one little extra bit of encouragement to attempt that Level 5.5 cache which has been bugging you for so long, or even to re-visit a remote cache we found 2 years ago, with that spectacular view from the mountain-top:
Of all of these offers, please support the last one at the very least, if it's only giving them a visit-hit. These little extra "geo-fun" sites add even more neat things to our already exciting sport. And a simple "Thanks for your Geo-Support" e-mail to the other 2 would let them know that we DO notice little things like this & do appreciate them.
That's all 4 now.
