Wooden Nickels / Signature Items

Post by DudleyGrunt » Wed May 25, 2011 9:31 pm

I placed an order, today, for my next set of wooden nickels. I'd be happy to trade for other wooden nickels or other signature items of my fellow OCUS cachers.

I was initially going to include Groundspeak on the reverse, but was having trouble fitting them on, even with only using "GC.com". I ended up deciding that 1) they really don't need the extra publicity and 2) they don't seem to like being included in the same breath as the other sites.

The full quote from Blaise Pascal is, "We never seek things for themselves—what we seek is the very seeking of things." I came across it a while ago and thought it was perfect for geocaching.

Thanks. The Old-Time Wooden Nickel Co. is also the home of "The World's Largest Wooden Nickel" and a Wooden Nickel Museum. I think it would make for an appropriate virtual cache, given so many cachers use or have come across wooden nickels as swag / signature items. I'm going to try to work with the folks there to get specific info folks could gather from the museum to use as a Log Password.

I still have some of my old Cav Scout wood nickles from 2004. I used to place them in caches all over Washington state.
