Forget the FTF How Many DNF's Have you logged.

Recommended Posts

I have 19 DNF's and 94 finds. Sometimes my DNF logs can be far more amusing than some of my found it logs. I do wish you could look at someone's DNF's as well as finds in their account. I'm not ashamed of mine, in fact I like them. For me it's not really about numbers or anything, just about the experience and DNF's are an integral part of my geocaching experience.

 

As far as statistics, the 19 DNF's and 94 finds add up to 113 attempts. That gives me a find percentage of 83.19%.

 

Here are a couple recent DNF logs of mine that I think are pretty amusing:

 

First one

 

Second one

 

If they add their DNF's to a public bookmark list, you can see them. Mine are visible in my profile.

The public bookmark list is cool, I have all my dnf's in public view, if I do find one that I dnf'ed on, I'll remove it from the list. Not ashamed of my dnf's, maybe it will start a new trend. Finding is not just about the numbers to me, the places you get to see is what it is all about.

That's a good workaround for those of us who want to make them available. Thanks for the tip!

Also, if you are on a cache's page and that cache is on someone's DNF bookmark list, it will tell you that on the right side of the screen.

122 DNF's logged.. probably a good 50 more that I didn't bother to log. If it is a halfhearted try at the end of a day, or my photo just isn't good enough to give it a reasonable go I often wait until another foiled attempt before declaring a DNF. Of the 120 or so caches (a couple multiple DNF logs on a single cache here and there) I eventually found 42 of them. So reported DNF rate is 8.7%, but the real number would be more like 12%. I eventually find virtually all the local ones, but those road trip blunders are on my list forever.

I have one DNF logged, but that is not my only DNF. I just haven't updated them yet...in fairness, I have 4 finds I still need to log though (and I will log the DNF's). :shocked:

 

I do not take DNF's personally like some seem to.
