About This Item


A bar of gold, given away as a promotion for John Grisham's 2012 book, The Racketeer. Sure, it's a promotion, but how can I complain about such a cool giveaway?

By the way, if you're curious: all that text above in the block labeled "About This Sponsored Trackable" is out of my control. (1-Jan-2013: I just noticed that they changed the format to get rid of the, apparently, far too obvious "Sponsored Trackable" label that used to tell you specifically what text was provided by the sponsor. Everything above "Current GOAL" is out of my control. I think you can work out exactly what the sponsor provides.)

Discovered in a cache while visiting from Houston Texas. Cool TB but didn't want to be greedy and take all the TB's out of cache, all is well with the TB.

Strange thing here, ...I guess stranger things have happened before, but when I thought I had placed this into a cache in Pleasanton apparently I did not.
Today, I found it under some papers under my TV unit in the kitchen. Huh, I said...I better get this back on the road.
We were going over to the Dublin REI for some shopping and I knew there was a large cache there. Well, that is where this trackable resides tonight. Will log a drop in a few seconds.

Missing. This coin was in [url=]42 and 99[/url] when that cache disappeared, since replaced by a new, smaller container.
