Up for bids next is a lot of 678 'favorites points' on Geocaching.com.
I have NO INTENTION of using them, but would hate to see them go to waste.
Certainly there is some cacher out there who does not have enough 'favorites points' to distribute among their finds?
Bidding begins at 12,000 quatloos.

What does that amount exchange to in Mulligans? Because that's all I got. :blink:

You could put all those points into ET:001 and then sit back and watch the fireworks.

Of course they are fairly valuable. People rarely get a round one!

Would Cholla Cactus buds be considered a fair trade item or are they too sticky to handle safely. :laughing:

OK...

The post holes sound interesting...how many in a case? I could use them when archiving caches.

Mulligans? I'm not a golfer.

TUITs? I'm making plenty of my own out of the EatStayPlay tokens I have collected/am collecting.

I have access to all the cholla buds I can eat, thanks.

The sky-hooks could be useful, but cloud-clamps? This is Arizona after all.

I have solid-fuel headlights, and two adjustable metric wrenches already...thanks though...

I'm really leaning towards those post holes...

I bought some one time. They work okay in sand but really don't work if you have any rocks.

10 pails of Sailboat fuel for 1/2 of them.
But I have to keep the pails, so you will have to supply your own containers

Do you do any camping? If so, does your camping include a camp fire? If so you may be interested in a package of 50 smoke shifters I am sitting on. They are the ambidextrous variety. I can post a picture if needed.

It just seems to me that cloud-clamps would be useful in Arizona. How else are the clouds going to stick around?

I have the following items for trade. These were unsold inventory from my auto repair shop, which for some reason people quit coming to. Oh well, maybe I can get some Favorites points out of the deal.

100 Favorites Points for a Porcupine Seat Cover, guaranteed to keep sleepy drivers alert.

Posted Image

20 Favorites Points for a Universal Muffler Bearing.

Posted Image

400 Favorites Points for a Flux Capacitor, essential for time machines and guaranteed to get you there before you depart.

Posted Image

250 Favorites Points for a new-in-box Kuhneutson Valve

Posted Image

or make offer for any of the following:

Elbow Grease

Posted Image

Left-handed Metric Screwdriver

Posted Image

High-Performance Piston Return Spring

Posted Image

Wiper Blade Sharpener

Posted Image

Send your Favorites Points and I will get your trade items in the mail one day.

It is! You are in luck! I've sent you my address via PM, just ship the 250 Favorites Points plus $45 shipping and handling and one day I will send you the valve.

You may be interested in the Flux Capacitor as well which once installed will allow you to receive the package yesterday.

Thank you for doing the needful.

and I also found an Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator, it has a picture of Bugs Bunny on it ????

Think I'm going to keep the Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator, it might make a cool Cache container and I will get all your Favorite Points for free

YES FOR FREE BWhahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

This didn't occur to me until sometime after I posted.
Since it's pretty nice out this time of year, I didn't think how nice it would be to clamp a cloud overhead come summertime.

I may have to reconsider on the post-holes if they aren't going to be effective in rocky soil...are they carbide tipped post-holes, or just the regular kind?

I could use some left handed blinker fluid (winter weight) in exchange for 5 prime number votes. I will throw in a 6th vote of your choosing if you pay the shipping.
I am also willing to exchange my gently used bidet for 8 votes OBO. White porcelain, ok...off white a bit. You must pick up.

Someone is trying to take advantage of you. Blinker fluid is for hydraulic blinker systems and does not come in dominant-hand (left/right) formulations. There is a remote formulation for vehicles where the blinker stalk is mounted under the spare tire. If someone attempts to sell you left-handed blinker fluid that's a sure sign that the seller does not know what is in the bottle.

As for the stained bidet - ewe. :huh:

OH YEAH! hmmm Could it be my blinker pump is failing instead? The spare tire is juxtaposition with the hamster wheel propulsion system and there is no room for a blinker stalk. But there are two tanks that hold blinker fluid (Clockwise/Counterclockwise).
I sure wish people would start putting hamsters back in the caches for trade. I could use a few more of those. Unless they want to trade hamsters for votes?

Also, I will barter votes for platinum membership if somebody has an extra one hanging about. I do not have enough votes for titanium membership so that is completely out of the question.

I am thinking about joining the market for point trading.

Looking to liquidate assets I accumulated in the Coast Guard

Specifically

50 gallons of prop wash
1000 feet of shoreline

I am keeping my radar tuning apparel (aluminum foil hat)

I just managed to shift my last case of the common cold onto a co-worker, he doesn't realize the bargain he got. But for the most part I think my more tangible assets are a plus.

Do you do any camping? If so, does your camping include a camp fire? If so you may be interested in a package of 50 smoke shifters I am sitting on. They are the ambidextrous variety. I can post a picture if needed.


I always had good luck with the left handed ones when I was a Boy Scout, never tried the ambidextrous type.
