+Snoogans Posted August 7, 2008 Share Posted August 7, 2008 Okay, Comments keep getting made to me (at local events and forums) and about me that I'm basically not caching or not so active...... It's time to determine a caching catagory for me and I was thinkin' others might want to find theirs. Here's my geocaching activity: Finding: I add about 100 finds or so a year to my stats on average. Events and caches with GOOD word of mouth are a priority as well as any cache that is convenient to where I'm traveling. I DON'T cache willy nilly to improve my stats or out of any OC need to find what's hidden. I don't find any cache beneath consideration. I'll find any cache in any catagory or any style of hide so log as it's convenient for me to do so. FTF is NOT my drug of choice, but it's nice when it happens. O0 I NEED to find a cache in new places. Any cache will do. Coloring my world map red is my only real caching goal. (Besides getting all the cache icons.) I wish my wife understood that. Travel bugs: I move about 500+ TB's a year on average. Discovering does not blow my skirt up but I'll do it occasionally. I like to move 'em, move 'em. TBs and New coin icons are the only stats that matter to me. I own hundreds of TB's and coins.... About a third of my TB tags are unactivated and more than 2/3 are unreleased. Hiding: I add about 15 to my hide stats every year on average. I host quite a few events, not because I enjoy it so much, but because I want to give back to the community that hosts so many great events for me to attend. I've got literally hundreds of half baked ideas for future caches in some stage of planning or material gathering ALWAYS. The Snoogstress is NOT amused but she does tryyy to understand. I'm more of a hider than a finder with a hide to find ratio of greater than 1:10. I get far more pleasure from reading a find on one of my caches than I do finding most caches. Forums: Whether it's here or hgcs.org or some other cachin' site, I post on geocaching forums daily. SO, what kind of cacher am I. I'm certainly NOT retired, or inactive. On the contrary, I'm VERY active, but I'm also NOT into what everyone else is into.... What catagory do I fit in? Please, help me find out. Well, I guess we need to define the catagories first, so I maybe some othe folks should post about their cachin' activity so we can sort them into some catagories.......... Quote Link to comment
