+Seth! Posted October 23, 2011 Share Posted October 23, 2011 Hey, fellow geocachers. Four of my oldest geocaches have their ten-year anniversaries this month. My first geocache, Cul de Cache, hit that milestone on the 7th. That was followed by Urban Cache: Overdue (October 11, 2001), GPS? IP Address! (October 17, 2001), and Sawmill a.k.a. Your Browser's Cache that turns ten on the 30th. I remember when Adrian (then four, now 14) and I hid Cul de Cache and thinking how cool it would be if it was still out there a decade later. It would be like ancient treasure! Would you believe that there were only 8,439 geocaches in the WORLD when we hid that? That number has rocketed to 1,554,874. It has been remarkable to see this activity grow from what it was then to what it is now. In the most basic ways, the game hasn't changed, but it is quite different in many other respects. If you find yourself in the Seattle area, come on over to Kirkland and find some of the oldest surviving geocaches in the area. My Urban Cache: Overdue is a hit with everybody and the first of its kind, as far as I know. Cul de Cache is right by my house, so come say howdy. Happy geocaching! Quote Link to comment
