Love is in the air
We’re starting to see some love-themed rocks. With Valentine’s Day about a month away, now’s the time to get your rocks ready if you’re planning on setting some out (or, giving one to someone special).
Welcome new members!
This week’s new GoRock members are from all over the world – the United States (Oregon, Idaho, Georgia, Virginia, California, Florida, New York, Indiana, Ohio), Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. We are enjoying the rock creations you’ve added to GoRock.com and can’t wait to see where they will travel!
This heron rock “Heron Fishing” has been on the move all over the Gold Coast of Australia. He was set free about a month ago and has already been logged 4 times, making stops at a seafood restaurant and at a big rock known as “Elephant”. Looks like he’s up to some fun adventures! Can’t wait to see where it travels to next! See this rock’s full journey
And, this robot rock “Broken Bot” was picked up in Chico, California. Hope to see this rock continue its journey!
A rock found after …5 months!
We hadn’t heard from this rock since… August! It was recently found and appears it will continue to travel. Your rocks are out there – sometimes we just need to be patient and smile knowing they’re making others smile even if we don’t hear from them.
As we do every Friday, we’re featuring rocks from our GoRock members. Be inspired and paint some of your own rocks!
Once again, we have so many new rocks that have been painted and added to GoRock.com – too many to individually feature here. But, here are some of our favorites! (See them all here).
GoRock in the school
We pre-painted some rocks to drop off at a nearby school. A third-grade class will add their own flair to these, then set some of them free so they can track where they travel with GoRock.com. Being able to see on a map where the rocks travel adds a geography lesson into the mix. Seeing distance traveled is a mini math lesson. And, reading the rock finder stories helps the students realize the impact their rock had on someone else – more than just a painted rock, an act of kindness.
