23rd May 2021 – Latest Positions
It is not surprising that the annual Dartmoor Geocoin race is suffering a similar fate in 2021 as it did in 2020. However, the lockdown has been relaxed far sooner than last year and we are already seeing some travel abroad taking place. Not that any of our geocoins have travelled abroad yet, the furthest seems to be one going to Scotland.
Once again it is very disappointing to see almost half the geocoins are still with their owners, 6 out of those 12 not even activated! Please at least activate your geocoin as then I can watch it which makes updating this table so much easier. Ideally ALL of the geocoins should have been activated by now and there is no reason why they shouldn’t have already been dropped into a cache for others to find. Please do this as soon as possible, many thanks.
5th October 2021 – Latest Positions
Although I have been receiving probably a record number of notifications from the geocoins I am able to watch, none of them have travelled very far and none have left the UK yet! However, very few have actually gone missing which is very pleasing. Perhaps with travelling restrictions being eased we might find some travelling abroad.
There are still 3 geocoins not activated which is crazy as it only takes a few minutes to do. Until they are activated it takes me 10 times longer to see where they might be as I can’t watch them and have to use much more difficult methods. It’s still not too late, please activate them and get them moving!
30th November 2021 – Final Positions
Since my last update there has been very little change in the positions, except for one geocoin, Emma Cameron’s, whose coin jumped to second place by travelling to Scotland. However, 2 days later it would have added another 2,000 miles plus travelling to Cyprus, but unfortunately for Emma, the race had already finished! Once again, due to the Covid restrictions no geocoins left the UK during the race. Let’s hope for better in the 2022 race!
