collecting countries in General geocaching topics Posted February 2, 2016 I've cached in 19 different countries (17 if you exclude the US virgin islands and Puerto Rico) since I started geocaching in 2005. In some of the countries, I was only able to make time to find one geocache... but I made sure I found one to light up that country on my map! My one and only in The Netherlands: "Under the bridge" http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC921 Only one in Sweden: "Swerail #02" http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC17GG3 Also only have one in Slovenia... a guard rail cache wedged in the little nub of country between Austria and Croatia! When I was a lot younger I traveled with my family to a number of countries in the Caribbean, but I haven't otherwise missed out on nabbing countries like Andromeda321 has. I've missed out on a few states in the US, though. Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Washington namely, plus driving through Alabama once. My 2013 plans (so far) will allow me to add Argentina (I hope, I'm here now but there isn't a cache with 100 miles ) and Brazil. Plus Washington state! It has been quite some time since I've visited this thread, and I'm sorry to say I still haven't gotten through all the pages since I last contributed. I'm sure there are lots of entertaining and inspirational posts, so I'll be sure to catch up soon. My 2013 plans came to fruition! I added both Argentina and Brazil during my time spent working in SA. Later in the year I added Tahiti/French Polynesia (technically an overseas collectivity of France) and Washington and Oregon states. 2014 brought me to Israel, The United Arab Emirates, Germany, Vatican City, the UK (England), South Korea, Singapore, China, Japan, and Taiwan. Busy year In 2015, I added Portugal, Spain, Ireland, and Guatemala. Stateside, I added North Dakota to my states list. All told, I'm now up to 36 countries by the GC.com count. Here's to another fun year in 2016!
