My mission is to make it to the Grand Canyon and be photographed in front of some of the amazing scenic views and also visit some caches in the area. The Grand Canyon is more than a great chasm carved over millennia through the rocks of the Colorado Plateau. It is more than an awe-inspiring view. It is more than a pleasuring ground for those that explore the roads, hike the trails, or float the currents of the turbulent Colorado River.

 

This canyon is a gift that transcends what we experience. Its beauty and size humbles us. Its timelessness provokes a comparison to our short existence. In its vast spaces we may find solace from our hectic lives.

My mission is to go to South of the Border it is a rest stop and roadside attraction on Interstate 95 and US 301-501 near Dillon, South Carolina, so named because it is just "south of the border" – the border between the U.S. states of South Carolina and North Carolina. The rest area features not only restaurants, gas stations and a motel, but also a small amusement park, and, famously, fireworks. Its mascot is Pedro, an extravagantly stereotypical Mexican bandido. It is advertised by hundreds of billboards along surrounding highways that start 175 miles away. Well-known landmarks in the area, the irreverent signs feature Pedro, wearing a sombrero and poncho, counting down the number of miles to South of the Border.

My mission is to Visit and be photographed at the Tulum Ruins.

About 80 miles from Cancún, high above the water, lies the post-Classic Mayan ruins of Tulum. Perched with a view of the Caribbean, this walled city fortress holds palace as well as fortress building ruins, set above a sandy beach. With the fascinating Maya stucco buildings and stone relief set near a sandy, deserted beach with no commercial development in sight, the ruins and their beach are a popular spot with vacationers from Cancún.

I like this one. Can I be attached to this coin ( in the summer, I am not going to R &R on Rockin Roddy's Motor now).

 

If Opals will post her beautiful poem here we are at 96 missions now. 4 to go people. (Anybody did a recount, Im not sure I counted right?)

 

Be Aware Of Bikes Around You!

This code, we should all be bound to.

Look where they are and where they'll be

And if you do then you will see

What you should do to keep a distance

to avoid a tragic collision for instance.

Life is a gift that we can give.

Such a fast paced time in which we live.

Slow down, and give more space.

Make the roads a better place.

So here's to Tod and Tim and Karey

And the wonderful man she was to marry.

And Motogrrl and all who've passed.

Keep this code , make it last last.

It's one we should all be bound to.

BE AWARE OF BIKES AROUND YOU !!!!!!!!

Mission:

 

Travel and help all of us on the roads!

 

Please, post photos in your log, of very dangerous roads, crossroads etc in your area, where many accidents happen!

Let us all know of the danger there, and where exactly is this road!

It will be great to give us all details and info of the place, and why not, even cordinates of it, so if we ever pass from there to be more careful!!!

My mission is to get to japan and visit The Top of The Mount Geocache(GC7AA7).

 

Top of the most popular mountain in the world. The mountain has over 100,000 climbers every year.

 

This is a long difficult climb to the summit of Mount Fuji-San. A climb that is very honarable if you can reach the top. Cachers climb to the top and log the find.

 

The hike take between 4 to 6 hours to the top and about 3 to 4 down. Bring lots of water and snacks to eat on the way up. Also bring a couple thousand yen and by a hiking stick and there are little camps as you hike up the mountain. You can have them stamp your hiking stick for 200 yen each camp. Also there are places to by food on the way up. At the top you can by a flag that says Top of Mt Fuji. It is a challenging hike, but rewarding when you know that you accomplished something that difficult.

All done setting up these Coin pages. I'm still working on attaching a car to each Coin and they will all be released at an Event near HQ in August. Perhaps at the Block Party or another Event that weekend.

Robert,

You are amazing! Thank you for doing all this to raise awareness.

I wish for the awareness to go both ways!

My mission is to move from cache to cache spreading the message of care and patience on the road. Always take a 2nd look. I want to spread this message everywhere, "To Hell And Back." I would like to have my picture taken with road signs, indicating where I am, especially one for Hell, Michigan. Once I grow weary of my travels, I wish to travel to south-central Pennsylvania to meet up with SgtMikal.

VERY cool! I have put this coin on my watch list!

 

What a great undertaking, WSR!! That must have taken you quite a while to set up. Best of luck, and I look forward to visiting this thread a bunch more again, as activity picks up.
