For a while now, I have marveled at the discovery logs for Geocoins posted by Team Richards (TR). This family puts a whole new perspective on writing a log after writing down the number off a coin seen at an event.
We all know, trudging off to find a cache may take you to a new place, allow you to view new vistas and generally give you a good feeling. But discovering coins, it sure can be rote - what do we do this for?? Just a cute little icon which someone paid extra to have attached to their coin?
Well, TR carries Geocoin discovery to a new height and the extra mile. It is seldom, if ever, they view a coin, write down the number and then just log - something like "nice coin, thanks for sharing". Oh yeah, I am guilty of this, too. Their discovery logs usually always contain some factual information about the art or subject of the coin. Some meaningful information.
I thank them all for their time to explore and learn together. Through their informative logs, I, too, have learned a lot ~ from information about optical illusions, information about dogs and loads of other neat facts and things. There is always an informative tid-bit to learn. Truly, this is the heatbeat of expanding the mission of coins in collections which we hold and do not release. What can we learn from the subject portrayed on these coins?
TR is doing the research and sharing it with us. If you have never read a discovery log written by TR, find an event they attended to see some coins they have discovered. It is a whole new World of learning!
Thank you - TR for making the coins I have shared - come alive! Cache on, cache happy - keep discovering!
