We need all of your help again. Maybe if some people can get make some suggestions then those of our members with some serious skills (E-Train comes to mind as one) can create us a logo. The logo would be used on T-Shirts, hats, etc. When we get a few examples we will select one to be our Logo. :D

SOME GUIDELINES:
1. Outdoor Adventure Related

2. Communications Related (It is what got us started...)

What i think would look good, is a round (circle) logo with "Outdoor Adventure USA" text around the edges of the circle, then on the inside there can be a 4x4 vehicle of choice, and a radio tower next to it with a couple of squiggly lines above it that look like its transmitting. I dont have any skills in graphics, but i can try to draw out what im talking about and scan it.

to continue with this idea....

as part of the circle include the points on the compass, N, S, E, W.

The Vehicle shoud be a standard every day jeep, as a jeep is the international symbal for off-road, like what the off-highway signs on the trails use.
Make sure to include an antenna on the jeep

I haven't seen anything come out so I decided to have a go.

The sun represents the outdoors,
the Tree represents nature
Red, White, and Blue USA represents the freedom of The United States that allows us to explore the great outdoors.
The California represents the California heritage of the beginning of OAUSA.

Im 600 miles from the comfort of my home, so i drew my idea on paper the best i could. All of the text needs alignment, and there can be various color schemes. I couldnt draw the Jeep as i picture it. I wanted a Jeep coming up over a ridge with its nose sticking up in the air, just like the logo they have over on http://myjeeprocks.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

http://www.myjeeprocks.com/images/header/header_bg.jpg" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

My radio tower is really lame, i dont know exactly what they look like. A little help would be nice. This would be cool... http://www.mrsikhnet.com/wp-content/upl ... _tower.JPG" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Heres my hand drawn, half assed, excuse of a logo. :D
