Geocoin Update: Return of Free State Mover #3

I last updated the location of my geocoin Free State Mover #3 almost two years ago. It was last checked in to a cache in Utah on March 11, 2009. On April 4, 2009, somebody claimed that they had moved it to Newport News, Virginia, but did not actually log it in. On April 10, 2009, someone else said they were moving it to the Richmond area, but again did not log its movement.  On July 6, 2009, someone confirmed it was in a Richmond-area cache, but still did not check it in. On September 12, 2009, someone named "toxikgumbo" said that he retrieved it and "Will move along soon".

And then, nothing for two-and-a-half years...until last Saturday, when "toxikgumbo" logged "found it on ground while checking on a cache" and then put it in his cache. I'm guessing he dropped it in 2009, but I'm glad it appears to be back in action.

Maybe it will actually achieve its goal of returning back to Maryland, so I can retrieve it. Ironically, its goal is to return to Maryland inside the Beltway, where I don't live any more. I'm sure I'll find a way to get to it, though, if it makes it that close.

The North American part of its journey
