Have received word that via post I am receivng one of the copper ECP coins to release into the wild here in Maine. The mission of the coin is, of course, to travel the US and beyond. I will not know the full details until the coin arrives in my post.

As this is winter here and a bit chilly, as well as unpredicitable snow cover, I am asking for Geofriends who might help move this coin from Winter Friendly cache to cache. Please PM me or EM me your offers and we will see what we can do. The coin will start out from Orrington and I hope proceed on it's journey ~ well documented for the owner ~ of course.

As an owner of one of these coins - it is awesome to hold in hand. Nice icon too. I sure hope the one I receive can travel over some parts of Maine and then journey on for other adventures.

PLEASE - Maine cachers - help prove this state is not full of Geocoin and TB "thieves"! Move this coin! And if new and encountering this coin - not sure of how to log it - please just ask - we will help you.

So look for the arrival of the Penquin - and email me if you would like to help this cute lady/fellow travelor.

Cheers!

Cheers! I think the coin should attend the winter camp out in Abbot.

Hopefully I'm not jinxing myself, but all of my TB's and coins here in Maine have done really well lately. Hopefully the Penguin will do well. I would love to help him along if I see him.

Ladies - so happy it made it to you! Thanks everyone for keeping the little fellow safe. Safe but moving. Trick or Treat would like to see this coin so I will let them know your plans and schedule.

Unfortunately, while you all will be socializing and sharing coins, I'll be sitting in an A&P class thinking about socializing and sharing coins. Thanks, Dave, for offering to get this one to us (interoffice mail?!!) but I won't be able to make it to the next few events because of this Monday and Wednesday class so I would probably just hold it up at this point. I'll just watch his travels from afar for now!

I am sure someone can get the coin to you - somehow,some way.....

Ah yes, classes and work can get in the way - I am very familiar. Good luck on your class!

No worries I will get you the coin if not interoffice I'll find a way...

So it looks like the Penguin will be going trick or treating :D We will be taking some photos this weekend, before moving it into capable hands.

Again - thanks very much everyone. I am sure Hydell (the owner) is pleased. He loves photos I know. Eventually the penguin will be dropped to continue its travels.......it will be fun to watch.......and hopefully travel safely.

We'll probably do some Bangor caching in the next few weeks. Unless you're coming south...

I have no idea where I'm going to be from one minute to the next. Sometimes I don't even know where I am.

If you come up on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday I'm up for some caching. Even a Saturday Morning.

Are you going to be at the Yard Sale for the JD Foundation Saturday? How about Relay for Life next weekend? If not, are there any volunteers who are closer to Ekidokai who might move our penguin along so Eki can see him?

Lets see if I can get this right. You guys are great.

If finances work out I might attend the yard sale. I have a few more things that need to be donated if I can find all the accessories. An electric scooter for one.

I am planning on going to the walk event also.

Again you guys are great. Thanks.

I'll throw him in the bag and bring him with me to Abbot this weekend on the off chance that we hook up. Poor Penguin has been itching to get out of his flip and into the hands of a new cacher. If it doesn't work out this weekend, I'll bring him to the relay next Friday. Look forward to meeting you in person!

The Relay is on the 5th.... in 2 weeks.....right?

Correct - the 5th of June!
