    They are both terrific places to visit! I don't recommend travel by kayak in either case, however.

    That does raise an interesting question.

    FORUM DERAILED!! So anyhow, where were we with this 2008 geocoin discussion? SNOWSHOES!

    Has anyone taken a crack at a design? Is that our next step?
    I heard a pair of snowshoes side by side. Possibly with one having a tracking number and/or the year 2006 and the other a different tracking number and/or the year 2008.

    What's the next step after that Andy? Brad?

    Honestly, the design has always been the sticky step. Once that is approved, ordering can start. (Probably SHOULD wait at least until Jan. for the 2008 coin tho... )

    Since, I have been working on a coin - I know one sticky wicket which delays things a lot the first of the year is the Chinese New Year. If you don't get things in before mid-January to February - you loose a lot of time. Guess it depends on when in the year you want to get the coin out.

    Coins, I am learning, are a lot of work. Thank you to all who have worked on ours in the past (and will in the future).

    The rarer the coin the better. One every couple of years sounds better. We can judge the popularity of Geo-coins and changing trends better. Winter theme sounds great. Some caches that are unavailable to cachers with out water transportation, become available when our waterways freeze over.
    I am somewhat talented in graphic arts and maybe able to help. I am semi-retired, so I have alot of free time. (When I'm not geo-caching.)
    A design contest, with a prize for the winner maybe?

    Hey Welcome to the site Mapachi. You can use your talents in graphic arts anyway you wish. We are always looking for new design concepts for the coins and other things we do around here. A banner for our events that take place is another place we need to consider for a design so go for it. Of course I'm way down here in SC and don't get to have much personal input on things but still consider this place and the people here my geocaching family. Glad to have you aboard.

    Default Maine Geo Coin

    Being a newbie and not having found a Maine Goecoin yet, I was thinkign what a "non-Mainer" might like in a Maine coin. Well it won't be Baldacci on the front and Susan Gendron on the back but how about a coin shaped like the State of Maine with a hiker in snowshoes on one side and Stephen King chopping down a pine tree on the other? I'll keep trying, but I'm sure I can come up with something!?!
