Check out the "Overland Bound by Region" forums for other members that may be nearby. Here is a direct link to the Southwest (AZ, NM, TX, OK) region: https://www.overlandbound.com/forums/forums/southwest-az-nm-tx-ok.80/About to change my rig for overland capability. Is there a community in San Antonio to link up with? Would love to train and become an ambassador! Put my Communication Degree to work haha
My nearest member is probably 2000 kilometers from me. I'm in Krasnodar he in Saint-Petersburg, Russia )))In addition to your comments I assume that a recommendation from another member is required. My nearest member is probably 100 miles from me. It's not the end of the world but no one will see me doing my bit
Wellcome my friend!now there's a region I'd like to go to
M,While I understand the sentiment, these coins aren't free to make or ship. Maybe a list could be put together for a coin donation setup at the store, where members can purchase coins for deployed members. Something like that. We need to keep the costs for members low and voluntary.
Thanks for your service!
Does it have to be an ambassador coin or can it be anychallenge coin? I always carry my favorite unit's coin in my wallet, from when I was stationed in South Korea.*It has also been alluded to, if a Ambassador Challenge Coin is presented by a member at an Overland Bound gathering, and tapped on a hard surface, you have 10 seconds to show your coin, or the drink is on you, whether it be beer or Sarsaparilla!
I have not served, but my Grandfather did, on the Thresher Sub. I have a coin that was given to my family at the 50th anniversary and unveiling of the memorial in Boston. Still one of my favorite coins that I carry every day.Does it have to be an ambassador coin or can it be anychallenge coin?

I suggested a while back with regards to an OB Trackable Geocoin but I don't think there was any interest.This is a great idea. I got my member coin in the mail the other day. Thanks.
Maybe even a coin for Geocaching that could be tracked.
I have done a little bit of Geocaching, but not enough to be good at it.
Have some members build and place OB based caches around the country.
Awesome - not much can be said to say how both sad and proud that day was for Americans and the many heroes there were who will never be forgotten.Oh my I did not expect this! I received my Base Camp Flag today but the Ambassador Coin with it is over the top! Your reaction when I offered a bit of support to a couple going through what must have been a couple of very rough days was all the thanks I needed. Knowing I might have made you feel better was priceless. I just wish I could have actually done something.
I should tell you a little story. This is the second Coin I have been gifted with. And your Ambassador Coin now resides with my 2002 Air War College Coin. A good friend of mine represented the United States Coast Guard in that most important War College year. He presented me with his Let's Roll Coin at the graduation ceremony. I feel that coin embodies the spirit of Todd Beamer. You may know that Beamer was part of a group that stopped hijacked Flight 93 from reaching its target, some believe the target was the White House. (For anyone too young to remember Beamer and his "Let's Roll" google it.)
My wife and I stayed after the ceremony to socialize with members from all of our military branches that day. Many of those men and women received orders that day. War. Sobering.
Corrie and Michael, Thanks for everything. Your Coin is in good company. And I have two good luck coins now. View attachment 9002View attachment 9003
I myself would like to earn those awesome coins. Do not no where to start or how to start. To new at this.Ha! I think so! We are still defining (community will help) the requirements for other coins, but that's a good candidate! I updated the post to show which tracks/coins are ready! Also, you can read the requirements in "Profile Page" -> "Badges".
