    My “story’s” similar, sourgum: I’ve launched 2 TB’s so far and one Geocoin, and the original TB (the 1st one) got stolen somewhere in Idaho, so then I re-started it with a different “hitchhiker” and the “copy” tag; the “hitchhiker” got stolen and the person who found the tag was nice enough to replace the “hitchhiker” for me and pass it along.

    The Geocoin WAS somewhere in a cache in upstate NY and then the next thing I know, that cache’s owner is posting a note that the coin’s not been in that cache for at least a couple of weeks and listed it as “missing” (personally, I think they took it, but who am I to say?).
