    Can somebody give a readers' digest note as to what the Where's George dollars are all about. I really didn't look that closely but did see some stuff stamped in red. Thanks folks!

    I once found $100 in a cache . . . true story . . . of course it was an Iraqi dinar with Saddam Hussein on it and therefore it was nearly worthless.

    Wow! That's quite cool. Is it common to find the Where's George dollars in caches? I've done only a 150 or so and this is the first time I've heard of this. Yet another new twist, gotta love it!

    Where's George dollars are found on occasion - your gas tank would wheeze between caches stocked with them......but they are there on occasion. Some cachers are heavy into the WGDs. And then there are the cachers who just leave change and regular $ or silver (yes, I have found silver coins too.......)

    One of the goals in "Where's George" is to get as many hits - reports on the bill's location - as possible. Used to be that "Where's Georgers" put marked bills in caches assuming that cachers were more likely to report the find, and also move them to another cache to be reported again.

    But... The owner of the "Where's George" web site so that any bill reported as being found in a geocache is no longer eligible for the record books. So not as many "Georges" are showing up in caches.

    There's one guy in Biddeford who has entered more than 55,000 bills.

    Remember: It's ALWAYS about the numbers! LOL! (I'm ranked #11 in Maine and #863 nationally.)

    (Sheesh!)

    Yeah I got a rather nasty email from a Where's Georger one time when I picked up and placed a bill in a cache at one time. I don't bother with them anymore unless it is in regular circulation.
