    Thumbs up Another Good Geocaching Site

    I see that at least 2 other geocachingmaine members have already found this site:

    Oh - and if you think our signature Maine Geocacher Permit looks a lot like the US Geocacher Permit they're advertising, you're right. But we DID NOT steal their design.

    We modified the design of a CANADIAN Geocacher Permit we picked up in Quebec.

    And here's another site:

    http://www.travelertags.com/index.php?Itemid=1

    This site would allow us to establish our own numbered Maine Geocoins,and be able to track them here.

    What does everyone think?

    Default Geocoins

    The only thing wrong with not logging through geocaching.com is people don't know where to log the coins. Many people don't know how to log tb's in or out of caches as it is. Going another step further will really confuse them. I have 5 Calif. geocoins out there that I have never heard from since they were taken from the original caches. I don't know if they just decided to keep them or if they can't find where to log them. I like the idea of a Maine coin though.

    I hear what you're saying - but there isn't any way to log a uniquely Maine geocoin on geocaching.com, is there? I've seen many state coins but none can be logged there.

    Seems a shame... You'd think they'd set up a system for state coins - like a number with a 2-letter state prefix...

    Any way to petition them to do this other than just emailing them?
