I like the icon for The minnesota Loon geocoin. Looks really neat if you ask me. Can not wait to see Alvins phone line coin in person. I am getting anxious.

OK, I was a little confused on the coin icon. I now see why that is. When I found the cache way back in 02 it was up in a deer stand and not the current seating errrrr setting.
