We trade bills, told Where's George stories, and enjoy great food and ice cream. This was my third gathering. As I said before, this gathering was one of the monthly gathering we are setting up in Western North Carolina. I can not wait for the hits from the bills used and traded at the gathering.
The next gathering will be in August. At this time, I think I will not be able to make it due to money being so tight at this time. Of course, I will post about it here.

The First Bill
The Second Bill
Sunday, May 17, 2009
I post messages most in the South Eastern USA Forum on Where's George?. When people in the forum have not gotten a hit is a while they ask for a Southern Sigh. This is how Georgers complain about a dry spell in the regional forums. Each region calls it something different.
- Midwest USA = Midwest Moan
- North East/ Mid Atlantic USA = Northeast Nag
- South Eastern USA = Southern Sigh
- Western USA = Western Whine
It works really well. On Saturday, I posted a message saying that I have not got a hit is six days and needed a hit. I received a Southern Sigh from my fellow Georger in the Southern Forum. Will early Sunday morning I received this hit.

I am sure this is the first of many international hit that I will get from the bill that I used in the Philippines. I hope that I get at least one hit in the Philippines from these bills.
With the traveling distance of 6,957 miles, I am sure this is my farthest traveled bill to date. This is only my third international hit.

It is always fun to receive direct hits. I have got a few direct hits before but it has been awhile. A direct hit is when someone hits a bill and in the user notes says they got the bills from the same place that you spend the bills.
Since I have TWO bills from this location suspect someone in area is originating them. Finding TWO bills in one location can't be coincidence. ~ User note from Hit#808
I response to this user's note. I have seen were two or more bills entered by the same person traveled together for a couple hits. This is rare but it does happen. It is interesting seeing how money travels.

I exchanged the bills for pesos at several places around Quezon City. The only problem I had with exchanging my marked Where's George bills was at the SM mall in Baguio City. In Quezon City, The only problem I had was with a non-Where's George bill. In fact, they took my Where's George bills and handed the other marked bill back.
The biggest problem with Georging in the Philippines is that they have a clean money laws were it is illegal to mark on the Filipino Peso. Some Money Exchanges use the policy on all money. I found that if one will not get the bill another one will.

In February, with me entering more of bills and as they get out and about I hope to see a increase in hits. With my upcoming trip to the Philippines I hope to get a few international hits. My rank increase in February will rely more of the number of hits I get since I not going to be able to enter many bills for the last half of February due to my trip.

This is only my second hit for the year 2009. I gotten a hit on a twenty and a five. Many Georgers say that twenties and fives do not get as many hits as ones. My hit rate on both are just under what my hit rate for ones are right now, as you can see below.

I hope that this is one of many hits that I will get this years. I hope you will join the fun, if you have not already, at Where's George. Hey it is FREE!

I am still waiting for my first hit in 2009. I looked to see how many hits I got from bills that I hit. Nineteen of my wilds have gotten hits after I hit them with the total of 22 hits. So that is a 19% hit rate and 22% slugging rate. That is better then my rate on bill as a whole at this time, but I have recently entered a lot of bills so my hit rate has went down a great deal. I am sure that soon I will be receiving hits on the bills that I have recently entered.
