    Inspirational PM

    Received a PM this evening from one of our members who hit a gigantic 8 box score. Now I did not get it,nor did I ever come upon such a score, but it certainly put me in a good mood, and I'm glad he got it.
    Persistence pays off.
    Someone,I forget who now,promised change. It appears that he came through with this promise because there seems to be a large amount of silver change being dumped and recovered lately.
    Now I was going to give my dump banks a break this week and only order 8 boxes,but after this weeks spectacular scores and that PM,I'm going for a mega box search.
    I like to think big,so I'm only looking for a half dozen dream boxes.

    Yeah that "change" we are experiencing is that change that people are turning in to buy food as all their dollars are gone.

    Oh yeah, congrats to your friend for the great score!

    I could use a little of that silva change finding its way into some of my boxes, I don't cut my orders down unless another bank quits ME. HH all, Mark

    Rich, does that guy live close to you? I'd only increase orders if I was in the same area and if I was able to order from the same banking system. Did that guy get 8 dream boxes? That would be something if he got 8 dream boxes... I'm not asking you to disclose their identity but just wanted to know if it was 8 dream boxes as an inspiration.

    Anything else you can share on these dream boxes (not identity of individual mind you), but perhaps some data? I am still looking for 1 DB, cannot image a load full of them!

    Re: Inspirational PM

    No, it wasn't 8 dream boxes, but a fantastic amount of keepers in total from from the 8 boxes. He doesn't live near me. I'm not aware of anyone in my area getting great boxes or getting great scores on road trips.
    The great finds posted and not posted were inspirational and have motivated me to step it up a bit.
    I may or may not get a great score. Might just increase my number of skunk boxes,but at the very least I'll score something.

    Can't win if you don't play. If I could up mine I would but I'm afraid already treading on thin ice and don't want the game called early. HH Mark

    Re: Inspirational PM

    the reason people are finding silver is.... it's being dropped off in bunches!

    Since OCT 1 I've had the opportunity to do a minimal amount of hunting on Friday and Monday. Both days got Solid silver rolls...already sitting at 9 + ozs for the month. I haven't even had a BOX to do yet!

    Keep rolling em out and we'll keep finding them!

    good luck all!
