John Grisham sent out 5000 un-activated geocoins shaped like gold bars to promote his new book, The Racketeer. It boasts 999.9% pure suspense, and the coins deliver 999.9% pure fun!We have been taking photos of our coin. We take it with us caching and log it as visited to each cache. We also try and find other John Grisham coins in caches. So far we have only found one. Once we capture our photo we upload it to the contest page on John Grisham’s Facebook page.

All you have to do to enjoy the fun and enter the contest is “Upload your Racketeer Geocoin photo and you could win a Grand Prize one-ounce bar of real gold and a signed copy of John Grisham's THE RACKETEER. Ten runners-up will win a signed copy of THE RACKETEER. Winners will be chosen based on a number of factors, including originality, composition, picture quality, fun, cool-quotient, humor, outrageousness, and adorability! Each photo must only be entered once, but an individual may submit multiple different photos. Entry period begins on October 1, 2012 and ends December 15, 2012.” –Details from John Grisham contest page. Even if you don’t have a coin or find one, it is a good place to go for ideals on pictures you can take of travel bugs you find. Owners of TB’s LOVE seeing where their bugs are. We thought we would share our photos with you…here are a few and we plan on taking more until December 15th 2012. Happy Caching!
