Current GOAL

  Please move this coin in any direction you want as long as it stays in North America.  This geocoin may very well be the most important geocoin you will ever hold in your hand. The reason I say that is because this geocoin is on a journey to remind people to be aware of bikers that share the road with us and to give them a little extra room on the road. Sadly, the man pictured on this geocoin (Tod) is no longer alive. On August 12th, 2008 there was an accident that involved a truck and Tod who was riding his motorcycle. Sadly Tod died as a result of that accident. Now his family and friends are left behind to try and understand why a careless lane change by a motorist took somebody they loved very much from them.

About This Item

  This coin was designed and distributed by Tod's best friend as a way to raise awareness of the need for more motorcycle awareness and safety programs. Please remember that the bikers on the road don’t have nearly as much protection as those of us in cars so please keep a vigilant eye out for them and give them a little extra room. By doing those 2 simple things you help a keep a similar tragedy from happening to another family. If you’re a biker please wear an approved helmet to stay safe so your family and friends won’t be forced to learn to live without you.

    Grab It (Not from a Cache) 05/24/2009 paint4fun grabbed it   Visit Log

    We'll grab it from you, do a virtual drop into the cache we found it in and then move it on...that way it can still log some miles when we drop it into the next cache!! This coin made my wife and I remember our honeymoon when a biker passed us, and then slammed into a van that was stopped, waiting to turn left. The biker ended up being okay, but probably would not have made it had it not been for his helmet! Our hearts go out to you...our 7 year old said a prayer for your family tonight. God Bless!

    I am the owner of this geocoin. I messed up and need the next person to possess this geocoin to help me fix the problem. I dropped this and one other coin just like it in 2 different caches. The problem is I forgot to write down which one was dropped where. So if the next geocacher would just "grab" the coin from me and then drop it in a cache of their choice that will solve the problem. Thank you for your assistance with this request! Michigan Cacheman
