How Many Disabled Caches In Your Area?

Ed & Julie

Recommended Posts

Just for fun, I ran a pocket query for disabled caches in my area.


I searched for all the disabled caches within 100 miles of my home coordinates, and came back with 221...seems like a lot, but I am in a somewhat rural area, so I'm sure other places have a lot more.


The good new is than my local reviewer has also checked some of the caches that have been disabled the longest and made a reviewer's note on the pages asking for a status report (my reviewer rocks!).


So...how many disabled caches are within 100 miles of your home coordinates?

In the entire State of Ohio, there are 133 disabled caches out of 4011 total, or 3.3%.

In the entire State of Pennsylvania, there are 170 disabled caches out of 5293 total, or 3.2%.

In the entire State of West Virginia, there are 17 disabled caches out of 696 total, or 2.4%.

Total for the Tri-State Area where I do much of my caching: 320 disabled out of exactly 10,000 caches(!), or 3.2%.


To answer the OP, there are 75 disabled caches out of 2812 within 100 miles of my home, or 2.6%.


I wonder why that is. :rolleyes:

Not many as our reviewer will archive them if they are disabled without any attention for too long. :D


My reviewer usually waits to get a SBA log before taking action unless the disabled cache is near or blocking a newly placed cache (that may account for hte unusually high percentage of disabled caches in my area)


I just went thru the long-archived list in my area and put a SBA logs on some of the longest disabled caches...you would think I was calling for the end of geocacing with the outcry it has caused :cute:
