    You can e-mail him at DSKGFTF@yahoo.com if you would like to discuss paying in another way.

    Many thanks to all who worked and played to make this such a great event.
    So the next closest bidder (or someone else) bought the other Geocoin for the next highest Bid? Please - do tell. I am very happy for your success in this event. Cache on - cache happy all!

    Wow, that is fantastic. Looking at the results page there were 21 teams that did a lot of good work, not to mention the people that put this together. Kudos.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    The coin was offered to the bidder behind you who declined to purchase. A certain caching lawyer (pope?) was delighted to buy it for the $200 bid price. A quick look at the Rallye photos will show you it was member of Team C.H.A.O.S. who bought the coin.

    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    Heck - that beauty might make a beautiful necklace! Congrats on your purchase!

    I just don't understand it - you bid and then aren't willing to take one for the price you bid - odd to me - but to each their own.

    Agreed about the cause and where I couldn't enter the Rally = the reason I bid!

    Congrats to all on a job well done!

    Sounds like something a politician would do.

    Oh no - it wasn't a politician who bid, I don't think, it was a coiner from the Western part of the US.

    Happy the coin stayed in Maine I am!

    Hmmm . . . heard a report about this rally yesterday . . . sounded very intriguing . . . may have to see about getting a few folks together to do this next year . . . liked the idea of combining aspects of the Amazing Race with caching . . . very intriguing.

    We had a great time teaming up with Trick or Treat, as Tricky Pups for the Rally. We had loads of fun and laughed quite a bit all day. H-pup didn't waste precious time stripping down to get the water cache, she just hopped in with her clothes on and with a little bit of Yankee ingenuity retrieved the cache. No censored or incriminating photos of our group
    It was loads of fun and for a good cause which is the best part of the day. We are already planning for next years race.

    I'm sorry I missed this one. I didn't know there is such a race. I would have really enjoyed it. Maybe next time.
