Life as a Geocacher

Caching and Reviewing

This is made up of stories from my caching and my reviewing.  It is a collection of those along with comments and thoughts.  Photos, and maps of some adventures and lists of some of the oldest caches.

Stats for sites

I just downloaded 5000 caches from opencaching into my GPS. From the Utah border to Kansas then border to border (almost)

Opencaching.com stats

5000 caches

  • 2269 - 45%  have never been found
  • 998 - 20%have been found one time
  • 556 - 11% found twice
  • 1095 - 22% have been found 3-5 times
  • 69 -1% found 5-10 times
  • 13 - 0.2%found 11+ times

503 -10% not imported from geocaching.com  (I saw a few are hand entered from geocaching.com so the number is likely a % or two below that)

 

Of those 5000

  • 130 placed by BakerGeckos
  • 299 placed by Bikephotog
  • 488 placed by Calgold
  • 113 placed by da438
  • 439 placed by Jackofalltrades001

  • 140 placed by Mo Pirate2
  • 123 placed by rathbun2012
  • 147 placed by StealthRT
  • 143 placed by Tawner

Total 2270.  So in this area, 45% of the caches are put out by 10 people.
