Re: [CentralTexasGeocachers] Re: Geocoins
- These coins don't look like they are trackable. I'm
not sure I understand the difference between coins
with tracking numbers and those without. What makes
one without a geocoin?

Never miss a thing. Make Yahoo your home page.
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
