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.

Earthcaches and Letterboxes by state

 I was running some numbers and thought it would be interesting to see how popular Earthcaches and Letterboxes are in each state.   I know this varies considerably by the number of cachers that are there.  Areas that have more caches will have more of the different kinds.  But, being bored on a Sunday afternoon, I decided to pull the numbers and see.

Earthcaches

 Being an Earthcache reviewer this was first on my list.  I had to see what was out there.

 

My observation?  It was no surprise to me that California had nearly 600 eartcaches with the number of cachers, and the size of the area.  Similarly the area around the Great Lakes have a lot.    (I cant seem to fix this skip down.... curse it)

Letterboxes

 

This one was a bit of a surprise.  California has a ton, nearly 500.  Minn, Utah, Idaho, all come in with 220-240.  They are fairly popular here.  I make a number of stamps and have moved to placing them, so I know that they are enjoyed by a lot of cachers.   Minnisota, not sure why.

I was surprised to see the number of states that have under 25.  Montana, Wyoming, and North Dacota.  Those are close to the states that have a lot.  Then a Cluster in the South, and in New England. Hmm, who knows.   I just htought this was interesting
