I may act civilized, but that's just it, an act. Scratch the surface, you find a predator, harm those under my protection, it will be better to face your worst nightmare.

The coins are trackable that are used in a global game of hide and seek like the old treasure hunt days. People hide caches of gifts or travel items and provide information on where to look for them. They use GPS coordinates to pin point the locations. There are literally thousands of these things hidden around the world.

We had coins made some are trackable with numbers stamped on them and registered with> http://www.geocaching.com/

When some one finds the cache they pick up the trackable items and report they have them. Than they put them in another cache and report where they placed them.

We use them for advertisement and navigation practice.

Heres what they look like>

If geocaching travel bugs were attached to these coins, they would probably get more activity and could be tracked at geocaching.com.  There is even a section where it will plot a map on google earth showing the coin's current location and travels.  Travel bugs are about $4-5.  Just a thought.

The wooden ones arent trackable but we have metal trackable coins. That would be an idea to attach travel bugs. Ill look into that. Thanks Fat Guy.  :thumbup:
