* I debated keeping this one. But it looks like it was placed and adopted out a little while later. So the cache has always been there it just changed listings.

On another note I am sure there are others that actually say they were placed earlier. In fact on this list the bottom 3-4 were published after the 1st of the year but we go by the listing date. If you have some that you think should be listed let me know. I will see if they should be here.

If you are wondering about the GC Codes... well the GC codes came along a few months after the start of the website. Jeremy Sad down and assigned them codes based on the states. It looks like the first codes were given to Washington, then Oregon, etc.

By the time you get to GC code 50 they are in order of them being published.
