I'm tone deaf, can I just sign the petition instead 8)

Or alternatively I can play my practice chanter AT the website. Not sure if it would be the same though.

It may not help, but I love the bag pipes so have at it.

sweet! the bagpipes are a cure all (although I only have a practice chanter at this stage - and sidekick ran it over after thanksgiving).

Anyway, I did sign up for a TB tag and passed it on to several other cachers I know. Hope they get a good request turnout.

Well, I received my TB Friday night and launched it in Locks and Lock-n-Locks today. If you pick it up you get a nifty blue icon on your trackables page. Enjoy

I got my TB in the mail this weekend and just need to get off my duff to get him out there. I attached the tag to a spotted pony. I know that Rebel Biker Girl received hers as well.

I'm waffling between sending sidekick out to place it in Fidget's Lark (which he has never been to) or going with a cache close to work OR giving it to my Dad to place in his cache (he's retired...he can cache during actual daylight hours believe it or not!).

Rollcall then, what countries/cities have you guys gotten?

Mine is Jaru, Brazil.

Mine came today. Not sure where I'll release it yet.

Hey SSPG, you wanna trade? You got Brazil, Rock Rat got Honduras and I got stuck with France! I know, it's a good cause and that's what matters. I'd even take Glen Burnie, MD over France. :wink:

:lol: We have a guy on the MR2 forums whose signature says, Can't we wall off France? Maybe Glen Burnie isn't so bad after all. I bet mine gets to it's goal quicker.

Got mine too. Headed for Barpeta Road.
Search, search, search........ Hey it's in India. Shouldn't be too hard to get there. Prolly where Dell's call center is :)

Actually there are three caches within 100 miles all placed in '04 and never found yet. Road trip?

Searching through the bug names and decided to put <a href="http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?guid=a39e096e-c161-4d7e-9a6b-91fc1067b878"> this one</a> on my watchlist.

Cool! Why couldn't I have gotten that one? Then if would have been the first to achieve its goal. Maybe they'll mail that one to Brazil.

Ha, ha. You got France. That's what you get for letting work take precedence over geocaching. the Geo-gods were clearly not impressed 8)

Hold onto that thought. Maybe after the first of the year.

Great!! Now I've got the Geo-gods mad at me! No wonder I got stuck in the mud the other day!

I'm heading for Chicago tomorrow but intend to do some caching while there. Maybe that will ease the pressure a little. Anyone have a Unite TB going there? :)
