Continents and Rides

GazzaFish, I agree that the map seems unfulfilled. taking the task to the regional forums would be great. I can assist in North America and organize the travel through this continent.

On continents, whose going to cover Antarctica?, Closest to you, eh mate?

I agree that we could probably get someone to sponsor the mascot as it would be kool advertising.

I researched some other animals as well: arctic tern, experiences the longest migration of any animal , covering nearly half the earth once a year flying from the Artic to the Antarctic. They travel in groups to do this, so it kinda fits "our" culture, in a way with the adventure travel.

What would we want to focus on as character traits? Do we want a land dwelling animal? What kind of animal is adventurous? Ideas, anyone...

sandiegoland, this is hilarious and probably would fit the ADV in true spirit, eh!! That is great.

Realistically, I would assume, this is something that if we wanted to make a mascot for ADV we should put it to vote for members to decide on. Would this be an option?

What about a WOLF, at times, they travel in packs, other times alone. They live in the wild and partake in adventures daily to survive and hunt, yet care for their families and others.

Also according to Wikipedia, they are more prevalent in one form or another around the world, whereas crocs are seen in the south pacific, asia and north american market. What about a WOLF???

A wolf would be cool. The mooning gnome would also fit nicely. Maybe we need to make a short list of about 4 or 5 mascots and then get a quick vote on which one from the list.

I'll start the list

1. Mooning Gnome
2. Wolf of some sort
3. Crocodile/Aligator


I reckon we should try limit the list to about 5 items and then vote.

Not sure about Antarctica. Anyone know of anyone that actually rides bikes in Antarctica??? If we knew of someone down there with a bike, we could possably post the mascot over there, take it for a ride and then mail it back....Might be the best we could do...

I like the list for voting. If we can't come up with more mascot choices over the course of a few days, we can post it in Jo Mama, for the most views/replies, eh?

yes, we'll need to see if someone else rides in Antarctica. Another possible animal could be a crow, a mysterious, ingenious bird that takes to flight everyday... just a thought.

This idea sounds awesome and I'd be glad to trade hands in the Southern states somewhere.

glad to have aboard dangerz.

OK, the list so far :-

1. Mooning Gnome
2. Wolf of some sort
3. Crocodile/Aligator
4. Crow


As soon as we agree on about 5 mascots we'll put it to the vote. Might have to find a few links to where we can get the mascots from..??? I'll have a look....

I've done this a few times with geocaching.com travel bugs (http://www.geocaching.com/track/faq.aspx). The concept there is slightly different however.. you hide the mascot at a known location in between people. I think the relay way is actually better because you get to meet with other ADVriders. If the relay gets nearby N. Georgia, I'm there. :)

Mooning gnome with...

... a croc biting his ass would be HI-larious!!

I really can't think of anything else right now... and it doesn't really have to start with a ADV mascot, we could use the mooning gnome and start planning the ride, that would be great, eh?
