- I had to go down to the George West, Texas (Live Oak County) traffic
court yesterday to address a speeding ticket I received that direction
back last August. I didn't know about geocaching last August. Anyway,
I hit a couple of caches off of the southbound side of I37 on my way
down there, placed my first three caches in the area, and took the long
route on the way back to Cedar Park to gather a total of 11 caches for
the day (I attempted 13).
I gathered several travel bugs and geocoins along the way. These were
the first actual geocoins I have seen since I started this hobby last
My question is: Where do you usually purchase geocoins? Who creates
these things? Can I custom make my own, and if so, about how much does
Well, as far as a 'coin stash' goes, the coin has to be activated to get into the system. So, if you want it to be online and in a situation where someone else can discover it, you have to activate it.
For a pure personal collection, I guess it is irrelevant if it is activated or not . . .

Subject: Re: [CentralTexasGeocachers] Re: GeocoinsOK since we're on the coin subject from your personnel collection do you activated every coin or do you leave some unactivated?
And if you have some unactivated why?
IS it to use for FTF prize, because you have duplicates,you all ready have that coin icon, in case a geocache poker game breaks out, or you just never got around to activating them.
I have a few that fall into that last category
