2017 Dartmoor Geocoin Race – Latest

14th February 2017 – Up and Running

Well at least one coin is.  Just 3 days into the race and 5 geocoins have been placed, but only heartradio’s has been picked up and moved on.  A further 6 have been activated but the remainder have not.  Please activate your coins as soon as possible, because I cannot put them on my watchlist until they have been activated.  Hopefully within the next couple of days they will all be activated and then you will be able to place them at your leisure.

17th February 2017 – More Coins Activated and Placed

Several more geocoins have now been activated and placed but only 3 have moved anywhere, with a further 2 having been retrieved.  We have a new leader Dylan1966, but the coin has only just got out of Devon!  Another reminder to those who haven’t yet activated their coins, please do so now because I cannot put them on my watchlist until they have been activated.  Many thanks.

2nd May 2017 – A New leader and Four Coins in The States

Sorry for the delay, but I have now managed to get the race positions up to date.  We have a new leader in dixie_gooner whose coin has travelled to Australia via Thailand and has already returned to the UK! Four coins are currently in The States and only one in Germany 😉  Three coins were released in New Zealand and two of those made in to The Sates.  Unfortunately three coins seem to have disappeared already, two of them from their initial cache 🙁

9th October 2017 – Several Coins Rushing up the Leader Board

There have been some dramatic moves up the leader board since my last update.  Biggest mover has been Balrogslayers Mum adding 10,395 miles and jumping into 5th place.  bird 13 added 8,972 miles to go 6th and The Cooke Family added 8,467 miles to go 2nd.  But still well clear at the top is dixie_gooner leading by 10,621 miles.  Only one additional coin seems to have gone missing, but how sad that 3 of the 4 missing coins were lost (stolen) in the UK 🙁

    1. Hi Andrew,
      I think the miles just needed refreshing, they are now shown against steeplechase and not you. But that doesn’t matter. What I don’t understand and need to think about, is why the miles have not been shown as the shortest distance. They have been shown going right across two oceans and a continent, rather than across just the one ocean. I very much doubt if that was the route taken anyway.
      Regards, Dave.

      1. Hi Andrew,
        I have now checked this out, the miles are OK but the map for some strange reason shows it going two thirds of the way around the world 😉 !
