Something tells me ol' Mark will still be way up there even after he's been gone a year or two.  Great cache hider, that Chance Encounter.  I liked the fact that his caches were really spread out.  He didn't just blanket an area with tons of micros, his were all well though-out, individual hides.

Speaking of blanketing an area, my count jumped up 6 caches while you were typing this post!  :D

Like your stats, Thot!  O0

Oh, the queries we would query if only we could attach directly to the GC database tables!  ;D  

I'd love to make graphs of cache find rates and cache hide rates over time for the Greater Houston Area if only we could run a little SQL, heh heh!  :laugh:

I think it is just caches hidden in the greater Houston area --  though I'm not sure what the radius is.  His numbers matched my stats for unarchived caches (not counting my caches published this evening) once I backed out caches I have in Dayton and New Waverly.

CHANCE ENCOUNTER might be one that owes the most caches.  A lot of them are in Tennennesse, SE Texas and maybe some other states.  No telling how many in the Houston area.  A lot were all East Texas.

I ran a survey and he has placed some 387 total caches all over.  Out of the 387, he has some 102 archived and 2 disabled.

9KEY has 322 active caches.  I have no idea how many disabled or archived.

As for me, I have placed some 131 caches plus 8 more pending,  69 of which are archived, 1 was never approved and 9 currently disabled

I know somewhere, one cacher has placed some 4000 caches, I don't recall his name.  He is not from the Houston area.  KING BORUS or something like that.  Check the forum in GC.

Its still fun to find some unusual places to hide a cache around Houston

169 of my 322 caches are archived. CE and I both hit 300 on the same day.
Cybercat of San Antonio is in third place in the state, I think.

So when Snoogans gets his "One Degree of Seperation" going will he own all those caches in conjunction with the hider or will he just be the Godfather.   If he is going to be owner in conjunction with, it will be a long time before anyone will be able to beat his record of owned caches.
;D  :D  O0

;D From the overnight listings, looks like Parker Plus is trying for the most set in one weekend.  Good timing.  O0

Pretty soon Parkerplus will again have the most caches hidden in the greater Houston area.  Keep them coming Parkerplus.  I guess we have some catching up to do after all of the ones that came out last night.  Of course, we're getting way behind just about everywhere.

I have a newbie question:

How does someone like Chance Encounter maintain caches in Houston when he lives in TN now?  Seems to me like they would need to be archived due to not being able to check on the logs and how they are holding up.

Most finders will let you know if the log it wet.  In fact they may even replace them.  When was doing a bunch  of ParkerPlus caches I would bring extra log paper just in case the log was wet or full.  It is also import to log DNF's so the cache owner will know it might be gone.  Many cachers who happen to be in the area may check out them as a courtesy.

Yes, as a matter of fact we refreshed the log on ParkerPlus' "Sisters of Charity Park" today when we found it full.  Unfortunately when we went to "Rats,I didn't bring the Fishing Poles" I did not have another.  The log there was wet and full.  If you go, take a log extension suitable for a micro, but I am sure P+ will have changed it out by then. 
The item about logging DNF's is pretty important to us because we use it to tell if a cache is in trouble.  Today when we visited ParkerPlus's "Skim Milk" we found the entire lot freshly bulldozed and a cable worker trying to fix the communications lines that had been burned by the workers who cleared the site and started a fire burning the debris.  Funny thing, he said that the damage to the lines had cut a lot of communication to Minute Maid park last night.  So much for the City enforcing the restriction on outdoor burning.
Anyway, we will try to fix the caches we can, report any problems and definitely report any DNF's.

No more SKIM MILK?    :'(
That was one of my favorite P+ caches.

Sorry, only P+ can tell us if it is really gone, but I suspect from the evidence it is.

BTW  ;D Welcome to the forum Mr. Muddy Buddy.  Haven't gotten around to doing that even though I feel like I know you well from other cache experiences.  Hoping to meet up someday.

Went by the location and found everything and I mean everthing is gone. Everthing. No more artwork, no more SKIM MILK.

Many thanks to all of those that came by here and looked for SKIM MILK. It was fun to read all the logs, comments.

Sorry to bring you the bad news about Skim Milk P+, We did enjoy a batch of your other downtown caches Sunday.

I think all of my caches are outside the reviewed area, maybe there's an award for living in Houston, but only placing caches far away??? :'(

That's what you get for placing your caches on offshore platforms.  Bet you don't have many finds either.
