Cherry City Cachers present the "Black Cherry"

Hi everyone, it's been awhile lol. These nice folks gave me such a nice email about their new coin I couldn't help but to put it up lol. To tell you the truth I have gotten a bunch of letters from everyone. Thank you so much and thank you for checking up on me. I do love this blog and expect to return soon.

Introducing the Black Cherry. A nice trackable coin that makes me miss the summer. It comes complete with it's own icon just watch out for the pits. The Cherry City Cachers are from Salem Oregon, Oregon's capital city and a place I have been many times. You can order the coin here at $8 each.

Thank you for the note about your coin and good luck to you!

Just a little break :)

Hi everybody. Everything is great here. As many of you know, I had a geocache near my home stolen. The event it's self was not that horrible, but did make me realize that I could use a short break from geocoins and geocaching. I do miss you all already and I will be back in the mix shortly. The break is not all selfish, I am taking the time to research cool new things that will make the site better than ever. My goal is to take some of the editorial away from myself and create a more diverse information/knowledge base for geocoins. The many emails from readers were appreciated, and the cachebug will be back and better than ever soon.

Geocache muggled by the Bomb Squad

*Update* An astute area geocacher has found that this is just some lamo's way of stealing a geocache full of geocoins.... No bomb squad just a scumbag. Crazy hoax for a box of coins... hope it makes them happy.

This is very shocking to me but I had a geocoin cache on my property and I guess someone reported it as a suspicious container and the bomb squad came out. I am especially sad for the good folks who had their coins in it. It forces me to ask the question if the "terror" minded public and geocaching can co-exist. Here was the message folks with coins in the cache received:

Log Date: 8/25/2007
Unfortunately, this travel bug was placed in a geocache on private property without the property owners consent. Furthermore it was chained to a telephone pole. The cache consisted of a military ammo can with only military markings on the outside. Thus it was reported to law enforcement as a suspicious package and after examination removed by the Bomb Squad and the contents disposed of. Please follow the rules and guidelines as set forth on www.geocaching.com. Please see www.geocaching.com/about/guidelines.aspx#offlimit

The kicker is that it was on my property, front yard in fact. Boy, wait until the find all the ones in the park...
