So, Who Owns the Most Caches?
Posted 04 April 2006 - 08:31 PM
Chance Encounter 89
The Popeteers 43
OHL Hockey Guy 19
Team Troglodyte 18
Muddy Buddies 17
Wild Cat Bud 13
We B Hikin' 13
Full House 5 13
This list includes inactive caches. So far I haven't found an easy way to eliminate them.

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

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

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.
How come your numbers don't equal my stats?

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

Cybercat of San Antonio is in third place in the state, I think.

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.

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.

BTW 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.

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

That's what you get for placing your caches on offshore platforms. Bet you don't have many finds either.
I think all of my caches are outside the reviewed area :'(
