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.

    From one edge of Wisconsin to the other...this time I have left Todie on the shore of the Mississippi River. Hope you catch an exciting ride from here--happy trails.

    Hello again Todie's coin. This was my first TB a year ago. Made quite a geo-detour to pick him up again today. Have a few ideas about where would be a good place to drop him (again). Will move him on, I promise.

    • Nice Safe Dual Sport Bike Ride on Back Roads So sorry it took me a while to get that in a cache.  Between a summer to busy for caching and a few tries where I didn't find the cache.  Anyway, the Todie travel bug took a nice safe ride today and is back in a cache.

    Somewhere around 80% of motorcycle accidents are the fault of the driver of the other vehicle.

    The government does so many stupid things these days, such as bailing out rich guys who are mismanaging banks and invading countries that are totally messed up and would be best left alone. All the while the government is sidetracked with those projects it is NOT doing a very good job at some basic tasks we actually need them to do- better regulation and training of drivers everywhere.

    My hometown recently had a case of a person who was around 90 and who hurt someone because they got the gas / brake mixed up pulling out of a parking lot. This person had just gotten their license renewed for another 7 years. In many other countries (for example European countries) they actually do check people out and make sure they are still able to drive well as opposed to just collecting their driver's license renewal fee like here in Wisconsin.

    But we all can make a mistake while driving and my best wishes goes out to everyone affected with Mr Todie's accident!

    OK, I'll get done ranting but this coin found its way to the right motorcycle riding guy! Will take it for a motorcycle ride to another cache.

    I'm not a biker but this coin has a great message. Decided to take this to our cache, Little House, in Neenah. This is our first coin so I thought what a great cause for our first coin. I know it will get some attention in Fox Cities.

    Oh, thank goodness, I thought I was going to have to head up there and get him moving myself. I've solved the puzzle, but you are saving me the miles from Madison. Glad he's on his way again.
