I've got friends searching in Miami right now. I wish the site would post if drops have been found. Last time Twitter updated was 5 hours ago and at that time it was still live.

Hope my friends didn't drive out there for nothing... Sad

No dice in Miami tonight. I'm waiting to hear back on Twitter from Frenzied as to whether the drop is still live. I'm also going to call the shop at the address in the morning and see what they know as my buddy is willing to go back and look again if it's still there.

In the meantime, I've just realized each city has 3 drops. For instance, the drop that went live yesterday was actually the second of three. Meaning, we know what city to prep for on the 20th.

Here's hoping my friend gets another crack at that drop tomorrow. If not, there's always next week.

Now if only they would come up with a better drop pick-up confirmation system I would be thrilled. I love Twitter, but who knows if our competitors are using it, let alone reporting they've picked up drops...

A Miami drop? How did I not know this?

Address is in the middle of Coconut Grove, just north of the Streets of Mayfair mall, apparently near a dive shop of some sort. I know where that is, but with my current schedule there's no way I can get there anytime soon (I'm traveling from the 16th to the 25th).

Good luck getting it!

Nighthawk, you (and everyone!) might want to follow http://twitter.com/arg_deaddrop if you don't already. That's how I saw the info on the one here.

I can't pick up the Philly one today, if it's even still there at all. Looks like the restaurant doesn't open until 5:30ish, and I'm in the process of helping my best friend move across the country tonight. I may be able to head into the city tomorrow or the next day.

I REALLY wish they'd definitively update on which ones have been verified as picked up. I'm still not sure the SF one has been, apart from a lack of mentioning it in an earlier tweet.

That was from July 6th. Not sure if that's even still available.

I got it a little before 4pm EST and just got home. The location was Annie Creamcheese Vintage Boutique (http://www.anniecreamcheese.com/).
Is that were Aliendial went? If so, we just missed each other. :/

You can see my pictures here:

It seems the capsules are all the same each week:

EDIT: although I noticed that the seal on mine said Coral Sea, 1942, 3/11 but the other says 5/11

EDIT: PMs if you're listening, it's a little scary to be asked to have your picture taken with the drop, and to have to open it in the location. :/

My buddy is on the way to pick up the MIA drop from yesterday. If you ask FrenziedWaters on Twitter they can confirm whether or not the drop has been picked up. That's what I did and they confirmed it was still there, then I just checked with the scuba shop to confirm. I should have pics soon hopefully.

They definitely need to work up a better confirmation system for pick-ups though. Makes it real tough for people who want to look to know if they are wasting their time or not. This is my buddy's second trip to this location. There was no indication it was indoors until I contacted Frenzied on Twitter to ask what the dealio was.

Either way, I'm really digging this viral. I LOVE Shark Week and virals. Perfect blend for me, I'm so pumped.

Either way I'll tell myself it wasn't. Smile

So the third jar says 7/20/09 and the other jars to not pull up any more -coordinates, so on Monday 7-20-09, do you guys think that is when the new coordinates are put up and what time do they go up?

So both of us have done this before with Project Abraham, so I Just hope you and your friend got the package and I hope that they have a phoenix one.
