21.4 miles - Cache requiring a boat

or a good pair of swim trunks

Let's see...

464 Caches within 10 miles

At 20 miles, add 1121 more!

This is why I got a kick out of the "is geocaching slowing down" post here in the forums .

Current find count: 286... many of which are from outside that 20 mile radius. Last weekend we went on a cache run and the nearest cache to home was 39.5 miles. Farthest one that day (19 caches later) was 82.3 miles from home.

I haven't even gotten all of the caches within a mile of my home (11 of them). I've got 9, DNF'd 2 and one is #3 in a series of puzzle caches that I'm saving for a later date.

For those of you in "cache thin" areas, you may want to come out to California for next year's GeoWoodstock. The greater Sacramento area is thick with geocaches!

Driver Carries Cache

From my cords. in pittsfield mass., there are 101 caches within 10 Mi. 51/ I have found, 4/ are mine, 2 were F.T.F.s... At 15 Mi. there are 150 caches, and at 20 Mi there are 220 caches. This area Gaines on average of 5 caches per week at 20 Mi.

I have one unfound that I need a boat to get. 138 found within 10 miles.

How many square miles are in a ten mile radius? I suck at math so somebody else will need to tell us...but I'm pretty sure that twenty square miles more than doubles the area of a ten square mile radius.

n'est-ce pas?

pi x radius x radius (pi R squared, is hard to do on a regular keyboard) = 314 square miles.

I should've narrowed my goal to a 10 mile radius, but I set it at 20. I thought, 'no problem, I'll have that done in a few months'. Well...it's been a couple of years now & my GSAK file still holds about 500 in that radius!

3 caches within 10 miles. 2 are ours. But, we only have to drive about 60 miles for a cache rich environment. Best of both worlds!

I haven't gotten all of them yet. In fact I just found out about a cache that is literally right out side my front door, I'm gonna get that one in the morning
