I personally will be celebrating the 12 th anniversary of my 25 th birthday in February 2007. the DW is not to fond of the hobby but my 6 year old is OK as long as his feet don't hurt..my 3 year old is a trooper...only hear complaints if he has to go potty...

 

my soon to be 17 year old thinks it's funny we use multi-million dollar satellites to play hide and seek.

I'm 52 and just got started in this madness this fall. I had heard about it a few years ago, but thought that there wouldn't be many caches around. Boy, was I wrong! I got into it because I wanted a hobby that would get me a little exercise, and I hate to walk just for the sake of walking. I think I have hoofed it more miles in the last month than I have in the last 20 years! :surprise:

Calculated Average Age.

 

Yes, I have spent much time keeping track of the age of each of the 570 posts. My calculation made me realize that there are several ages: internal and external.

 

Internally, the average age is 11.57 years old. Externally is somewhat older, but really not worthy of calculation for its the internal age that is the one of value. :unsure:

23, started when I was 19.

 

On a related note, has anybody noticed that (almost) everybody with 3000+ finds is a graying man? My theory is that they're retired, get obnoxious around the house, and their wives kick them out and tell them to 'do something productive' rather than putz about the house.

Just staring at the responses (I'm somewhat of a Math wiz and really good at staring at a bunch of numbers and taking a decent guess at the average), I would say the average age is right around 40, but with a pretty wide "standard deviation", no major "cluster" around that mean.

 

(Though it means that I and the other adult member of our crew are very very "normal" <_<). (I think we already posted, but since I don't want to go through 12 pages of entries nor look at my hundreds of entries, the answers are 39 (me), then 42, 6 and 4 (well, OK very very soon on the last 2). I guess almost a "dupe" of the previous poster :D
