Getting a GPS

When we first started out geocaching we used a Garmin 76s map. It is a great GPS, and for the most part very easy to use. We have talked about updateing to a new GPS, we have looked at the Garmin 6os, and also at the Garmin rino 130 and 530. We like the features of the Garmins, than some of the other GPS units out there. I am leaning more toward the Garmin rino’s, because it also has a built in family radio.

We first found geocaching when I was pregnant with our first child, at the time we just lurked around the website( www.Geocaching.com) It was while I was pregnant with our second child that we started talking about doing some caches. We found our first cache, titled just peachy. We soon hid our first cache and we decided to hid it in our front yard, we called it Buckeye Bonazi. This sport is what lead us to start Smashing Pennies, we make custom and stock elongated coins. Our site is www.smashingpennies.com, while out geocaching we noticed that people left signature items, when they visited each cache, we also noticed that they were very collectable. So we talked it over and decided that we wanted our own signature item. We looked at glow in the dark poker chips and they were just too exspensive, and had a high minumum size. In looking we found a few sites that did custom coins, but again the price and minumum wasn’t what we were looking for. So in further reasearch, we found for a little more we could get our own elongated coin machine. Since we were excited about it, we wondered how many other people would think it was a great idea. We had a very positive response and so now we make them for ourselves as well as other geocachers.

Making it easier to press coins

We have decided that when we press coins that we didn’t want to dig around in our pockets or ziploc bags to get the change we needed. Back in Janurary we attened a coin show and bought a four pack of plastic quarter roll containers. We put two quarters in and a penny on top of the quarters, we fit about 15 presses in each container. So if we fill and take each contaier we can press about 60 coins or sets depending on what is on the dies for each machine.
