Thanks Tramper, real interesting... looks like there are not many bom scares, so you have time for stats. Hope it stays that way! :(

 

I've only been caching for almost 2 month's now (since 9 april 06, and found 34 cache already!). This is one of the best "games" to play. I've never used my GPS this much before, but now I feel that I'm really getting my money's worth from it. The GPS is still a toy to me, but now I have a practical use for it.

 

Caching took me and my girlfriend to the best places in ZA that we never new about (and I'm sure that 98% of the population dont know about.) That is the one thing that we really like about caching.

 

Thanks to all the cachers out there! Lets keep up the good Caching.

Very interesting Tramper - thanks! I've often wondered how many members caches there are, and thanks to you I know!

I stand by my theory:

Geocaching is a pastime invented by the marketing boys and girls at Ziploc. And Energizer is a Ziploc subsidiary.
