When I checked in from Las Vegas this week I discovered the story so far: I left some veggies in the Garmin fridge before taking off for a week in Vegas. Not wanting to be "that guy" who leaves the nasty leftovers for an extended time, I asked Scooter from the Garmin Garage to keep an eye on them. He put the container - and an unregistered Colorado geocoin - up for grabs on the Garmin blog. Not cool, Scooter, not cool.
So yes, Scooter and his vegetable-hating cohorts are holding my lunch container hostage. And if you choose to sell your soul for one measly Colorado geocoin (OK, sure, they're scarce and you get the microwavable container as part of the ransom), you can play their little game.
Or, you can join my cause and help good win over spiteful -- as my colleagues and I spend precious time away from our families to spread the word at Interbike about the limited-edition Team Garmin Edge 705 cycling computer. (I mean, seriously, have you heard about this impressive device? It has maps, a color screen, wireless data transfer and power compatibility!) But back to the Tupperware. I'll offer 3 - count 'em THREE - Oregon geocoins to the person who saves my veggie vessel. Granted, a true geocacher would save one coin and stash the other two, but who am I to tell how to spend their riches? Whichever blog post - Scooter's or mine - ends up with the most comments pleading their case will be where we choose our winning entry from. Good luck, and remember - there's no shame in stuffing the ballot box. Game on.
In case I didn't make it clear, if the winning comment is on Scooter's post, you get one Colorado coin (which is very cool) and one dirty dish begging for some detergent (not as cool, if you ask me). If that winning comment happens to come on this post, I'll send you three Oregon geocoins. You do the math, and may the best comment win.
