Regular readers may remember me blogging about a Geocoin that Eirene gave me as a prezzy back in September . In brief, a geocoin is a coin that has a unique code. The coin is hidden in geocaches (hidden treasure troves – found with GPS). A geocache visitor who finds the coin then has to place it in another geocache somewhere else (on logs the activity, using the coins unique code on the geocache website). The DragonDrop adventure coin (as I so christened it) has been on quite a journey. Since I placed it at DragonDropping (a geocache I set near my house) It’s been in 10 geocaches, travelled 4785.2 miles and is currently residing in a geocache near Colorado Springs USA.
The incredible thing is – the person who’s just had it, found it in a geocache about 1 mile from his house – he looked back at the coins history to discover that it started out from a cache in Harrogate about 1 mile from where he used to live in the 1970’s! so is it a Fluke? a meaningful coincidence? Perhaps I’m biased but it all sounds a bit James Redfield to me!
