Haha, I can't say I haven't thought about it.......although PA might not want to approve a cache 400 miles from home in the ocean, or do they have an approver for that???  I could always do a puzzle at home with an extremely long projection >:D

So far I have only hidden 7 caches. Out of those 7 though 1 is archived and 2 are disables for the moment.

What is the updated info?  I don't know how it was done originally, and don't feel like doing it by hand.  Listing all of the nominees and winners for the awards took enough time for me.

I don't get it, but I have 44 active hides in the Houston area, but I'm guessing Clear Lake is now not part of Houston?!?!  >:D

BTW, I don't much care for CE caches and usually avoid them.  Seems like they mostly take you to areas a sane person wouldn't want to be caught in after dark unless you had a deathwish!  :laugh:

...hence the term...the gray zone.  

Not every area deserves a cache.  Hiders should always try to consider the safety of their finders.   When you find large areas that are devoid of caches, there is usually a reason.

....that's why doing the "zip code" challenge might be kinda tough on cache placement.....

If your referring to Thot's list of cache hides at the top of this thread, that is a list from April of 2006 (this is an old thread).  How many hides did you have back then?

I enjoy some of CE's hides out in the pineywoods of East Texas.  The guy really has caches spread all over.

Currently, I have 57 total hides, of which 10 are archived and one temporarily disabled.

Gosh, I  hadn't noticed this thread for a looooooong time.  I've forgotten how I compiled that list.  I'll think about it.  The only way I can think of right off hand it would have to include disabled and archived caches?

OK, I've updated this list.  Remember it only includes a zone that goes out 42 miles from downtown Houston.  Also, it has oddities.  Sometimes archived caches are included and sometimes not.  I only update the PQ monthly so if a cache was approved and archived within a month it would never get on the list.  But, that doesn't explain most of the missing caches.  Apparently I made a serious mistake in October last year and ran a cleanup macro on my main Houston file.  Bad move.  This knocked out all the archived caches prior to November.  For example, I have placed a total of 13 caches in the zone and my count is only 9.  One of the four missing caches is under a different name so it isn't in the count.  The remaining three are archived. 

I cut the list off at 5 hides.

Seems good to me.  O0  I have 67 total hides, 10 archived and 10 that are most likely outside of the 42 mile range.

I actually have hidden 17 total caches but out of the two I think are not include, one is archived and the other is about 2 miles out of Liberty towards Beaumont so it probably out of the 42 mile range. Thanks for the list though Thot.

Great work, Thot, and Thank You. 

That list must just pick up active caches primarily as we have 76 and about 20+ archived now and the Popeteers have over 100 but some archived, too...seems to be no perfect way to do it.
