I wonder, with all the FTF hounds around, how long a cache could go unfound. Most traditionals are found within a few hours, or a day at most. But could a 2d/1t cache last a week without anybody finding it ( or logging the find, in the case of grangerfam). ???


What in the world are you talking about? I don't understand what you mean? :buck2:

My only FTF of the month went over two weeks between being published and my find (with no finds since).  OK, it's not exactly a 1/1...  ::)  ;)

Thanks, Neal!  I actually got 5 last month, though, including one outside our area in Ingleside, TX.  I would bet that's the one you're missing.  O0

I got another out-of-town (out of state!) FTF on This Earthcache, only because I stopped there to take pictures and get info to create my own earthcache!  This one got published after I created my PQ for the area, so I didn't even know it existed until I got home and started looking at listing it myself.  I have to admit, it looks like the CO did a better job on his research than I would have....  ???

We got an out of town FTF while cruising the Hill Country this past week. Exotic Area had a blank log when we got to it last Thursday.  O0  O0  John Wayne: Concho still has a blank log in it after 8 days. We didn't realize that when we were in the area.  :(

Lets crank this up again. I have rebuilt my file up so that I can make my report/s again.

Last year in March, I lost my pin drive that I had my information on. I couldn't get over that. I had so much info, I didn't how I could recover.

Early this year, I purchased another pin drive (one that clips to a key ring {the one with my keys to my van} so that I can keep it with me at all times) and started rebuilding the file. I began picking up short cuts how to get the info into the Excel spreadsheet that I have.

I had most of the spreadsheet compteted in March and was ready to start posting the monthly report, then Sharon, my wile suddendly passed away. I kept entering info into the spreadsheet but I didn't feel like posting the information right after her death. Its taken this long to be able to start postng again.

So here goes . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .



FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH 2010





TEAM TROGLODYTE had a good month adding 16 FTFs for the month

EASYGROOMER logged in 15 FTFs for the month

FENDMAR had a good month also finding 13 cacches with blank logs

FAMILIERYAN found 11 new ones

CRIFFREE was able to find 9 caches wi blank logs

NO MUGGLE found 6 caches with blank logs for the month

Collecting four FTFs were ATENNISBABE; BITTYBIT; CACHECOW QUEEN; CACHIN SHARK; COOK CACHERS; ONESTEPCLOSER; and TEXAS PULLTAB


Finishing up with 3 FTFs for the month were AARONBARBEE; AGTITAN; DMONEY524; KINGWOOD PATHFINDER; MCKs CACHERS; MYSELF; RAVEN; SKYFIRE & RANDOM; THACATFISH; TREA and the UNDEAD CACHERS



xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

For the Month of APRIL

It takes me about 20 to 30 minutes weekly to enter the information onto the spreadsheet then it take me about an hour to hour & half to complile the information monthly to tranfer it to a monthly report.

Hope you enjoy reading the information

Looking forward to seeing the reports. Do you have to request to be included or is anybody who finds one included automatically?
