I’ve hit 128 bills since joining Where’s George. At first, they were few and far between. To give you an idea, it took me over four years to get the first 113. That’s about 2.2 bills hit per month. I hit 10 bills last month and another five so far this month. (Point of origin in reverse order: Staines, United Kingdom; Wattsburg, PA; Fort Lauderdale, FL; Cullman, AL and Appleton, MN.) I don’t know if it’s that more people are becoming active or if it’s just random distribution. Notice that only one is local. One even came from someone based out of the United Kingdom. (Interestingly, I haven’t hit many bills from people I know in the chat room.)

As for hits on my bills, I got one hit on a bill that was supposedly found in an Aventura Casino. There are no casinos in Aventura that I know of. I think the person got it from Gulfstream Park Racetrack and Casino in Hallandale. Part of the property is in Aventura, but the actual building is in Hallandale Beach.

I had a random idea to travel up to Orlando, but I doubt I’ll be doing it any time soon. I need to worry about a job first and I’m not sure that my car could take the long trip. The only reason that I even thought of it was that there are three counties by Gainesville that I need and there are lots of attractions in the Orlando area, but Orlando and Gainesville really aren’t that close. There are a few other trips I’d want to take first.
