Well I'm glad I could bring a bunch in from the northern hemisphere.

 

Keep it up guys - perhaps we can make a concerted effort to place those TB's in our bags this weekend?

Good question. I am hedging my bet on more. People will enthusiastically drop them off and do one or two caches in SA to claim a geography, but could not be bothered to grab trackables or wish to feel obligated to hang onto trackables for the duration of their stay.

I love seeing these stats - thanks Danie Viljoen - keep them coming - amazing to see the fairly even spread.

 

I wonder when we'll break the 1000 TB mark?

I attached an updated graph of the number of trackables in South African caches.

If the trend continues, we should hit 1000 by 27 Nov 2011.

That is surprising - I expected more cachers to be in the country while watching the soccer.

 

I'm going to post on the stats page regarding this.

I will be dropping off a whole lot while here - but will also be collecting to take back with me. Most cachers will drop and collect so perhaps the figures will not always reflect the actual movement in and out.

I guess it all averages out in the end, but if coincidentally in the days preceding the stats being taken there are more coins and TBs removed from caches and sitting in cachers hands that would influence the figure too, as it would if coincidentally more cachers dropped coins that are sitting in their bags. It seems that as event caches come up people start hoarding them to take to the event. I wonder what the figure would look like if we all dropped all the coins we are sitting on?

Eish - that figure is a little bit skewed as there are a number of coins from a collection in the Event for discovery. :) But on the positive side I have dumped a few new ones in SA during my visit. Not too many but did leave more than I took nevertheless. :)

I would have expected the number to be higher. Of the 102 new TBs in circulation as a result of the 2011 TB Race, 82 are still in SA. Are they all in cacher's bags because it does not seem to have made any dent in the statistics?

I am a cacher in Arizona in the USA. I would like to mail some Travel Bugs and Geocoins to a cacher in S. Africa in order to get these travelers onto a different continent. In return, any Travel Bugs and Geocoins mailed to me will be placed in caches in the US. I got two good responses within hours of posting this request. Two will be plenty for this project, thank you.

This implies that about one in eight caches contain at least one trackable, on average. Or one in five, if one assumes that micros can not contain trackables.

 

The long term (2 year) growth is 1 more trackable every 5 days.

 

There are currently 6 caches with 10 or more trackables:
