I recently retrieved a very nice Stonehenge Geocoin (TB2HGVW) from one of my own caches. It started in Eastern England with a goal to get to Switzerland, and proceeded to take a virtual beeline to our desert southwest before jogging back as far as Wisconsin. I've exchanged e-mails with the owner and have been trying to find a friend going to Europe to grab it and drop it there. Came close, but one friend's trip to Germany got cancelled, so I decided to go to the forums for plan B. Anyone with a trip to somewhere near Switzerland in the near future? Or a friend going there?

I have a coin I'm mailing to Germany and could add this one to the package if you'd like. Just let me know.

Not a "worm hole", but "martian" transport.

I've finally figured out what to do with the "FIN" coin I got from "FIN is for Finish" as one of the first finders. I've made contact with "martians" that have volunteered to help get this one started on it's way to Finland. I'm sure the "martians" will be happy to transfer this on as well.

Let's see if there are any other opportunities, Ed. I'll contact you about your timing. Thanks!

I also have a cache contact in Germany. We mail letters to each other on a regular basis, so slipping a coin in would be no problem at all.

Thanks! I'm waiting to hear more about timing for Ed's "express service" with some "martians" and seeing if anything else pops up soon.

I have Grandparents in Germany, next time I'm over there I will have to show them where the nearest ammo box is. I can just mail stuff to them all the time and they can drop it in.

Good news on the Stonehenge Coin. It got a personal escort to a cache in Germany, and much closer to the goal hide in Switzerland. wink A trip came up quickly for Lacknothing, who made the grab at one of our high difficulty caches (thanks, Marie) and took it from there. Thanks, Roger! Cool

Shame I didn't read this earlier - could have got this one within 20 miles or so as my folks live very close to Stonehenge and I was there a few weeks ago. Never mind!

Stonehenge! Where the demons dwell
Where the banshees live and they do live well
Stonehenge! Where a man's a man
And the children dance to the Pipes of Pan

Hey!

Stonehenge! 'Tis a magic place
Where the moon doth rise with a dragon's face
Stonehenge! Where the virgins lie
And the prayers of devils fill the midnight sky

And you my love, won't you take my hand?
We'll go back in time to that mystic land
Where the dew drops cry and the cats meow
I will take you there, I will show you how

Razz
