      The upgrade and new version of the forum software did away with a separate username and display name. Some of you may be logging in with a username but your Display Name is different. So if you are one of these users and have trouble logging in use your email address you registered with or your Display Name. If you still have trouble use the Contact Us link at the bottom of the forum with your User or Display name and I will try and get you squared away. -Team Four Paw

That's great!  I wonder what the oldest unfound is now?  I know this one has got to be close to the top!

The guys that found 4.5lb Walleye posted a thread on gc.com before they made the trip. It was actually pretty cool because they used a [url="http://www.findmespot.com/en/index.php?cid=101"]Spot[/url] device to send their location so that others could watch their movements. I'm wanting to say that i read somewhere that they were on the water for close to a week before they even got to ground zero. An awesome adventure for sure.

I bet he took a replacement cache with him... just in case. :coolsmiley:

Here is another cache in Canada that has not been found – since 8/18/07.  I’ve met the cache owner before – he placed it on while on a fly fishing trip.  I’ve been toying with the idea of taking a fishing trip up there to find it next summer.

Looking at the far reaches of the Aleutian chain, I've found a few interesting things:

 

There are four other caches on Adak besides the Mt. Moffett Summit I linked to above, and only one has ever been found.

This Cache is the only one in the 50 states of the USA with an EASTERN Longitude.

There is NOT a cache in Dutch Harbor called "The Deadliest Cache", however there IS one in Akutan  http://coord.info/GC3V3D9

 

Round trip to Adak from Houston is only $2300.  Who's with me?

Two thoughts:

1.  The container looks like one of those cheap plastic school boxes so it is amazing that it was in such good shape.

2.  A bug jacket like Gordy's would have been nice a few weeks ago when we were caching in Minnesota - skeeters are horrendous up there.
