Calling All ADV Geocachers!

Hey there fellow riders,

I am a somewhat amateur geocacher and am a huge fan of trackable geocoins. For those unaware, a geocoin is a coin made specifically for geocaching. When a geocacher comes across the coin, they can take it and place it in another geocache. They report all of this on geocaching.com and anyone is able to watch the progress of said coin online.

I would like pool ADVs' resources and create a custom geocoin for this forum. I haven't been able to find exact prices just yet. But, if we get enough interest the cost per person shouldn't be too much.

As for the design, I am thinking a generalized silhouette of a dual sport overlapped on a map of the world with some sort of slogan. The reverse side would have a big ADV logo with "ADVrider.com" somewhere on there.

If you're interested please post and let's get this done! Here is a small album of geocoin examples I put together:



PS I posted this on the Rockies regional forum originally but didn't receive as much interest as I thought I would.

What about these?

EDIT: Doesn't look like much interest in the first one.

I didn't see a thread about geocoins. Am I missing something?

Probably not. I saw the term, "Geocache" and assumed it was all the same. I see you posted up there and have some positive feedback!
