When Does My Tally Start?

My son introduced my wife and me to Geocaching when on holiday together. We went with him to find four caches and joined in the actual hunt and signed the log books with our given names, having no user name at that stage. When we returned home we registered, adopted our own user name and started to log our finds.

 

The burning question is... can we count the finds we made with our son before our own registration? We note that other teams sometimes hunt together so may we now retrospectively add four caches which we took part in finding even though not official, registered cachers at that time. Please?!

It is possible to choose the date of your find, as long as it's not in the future. As recommended by others, you should log your find with the actual date that you found the caches, as long as your name was signed in the log book.

 

If the cache's log book contained only your son's name but not yours, then I recommend going back and finding those caches again to make your find official. I actually did that for the first two caches I found with my brother, but he actually signed my name for me (different from my Geocaching name), so I didn't have to go back... <_<

I found my first two caches two days before I signed up for the site. You bet I logged them! I don't think I actually got around to logging my first 8 or 9 finds until I'd been caching for several months, and had logged quite a few subsequent caches.

 

There's no statute of limitations. If you found 'em, you found 'em!

If you found them - log them. As far as your name in the log book, do what feels right to you. It's just a game.

When it comes to that, don't worry about logging anything. If your names in the logbook with a date, your name can be online with that same date.

 

You "joining" date means nothing in that situation.
