HC when you add new caches to the list do you put them at the bottom of the list or are they in some type of specific order?

Yes, what TheNorman said.  Of course, that puts the new one's at the bottom of the list.  I add all the new caches to my Longest Since Last Find bookmarked list and it is set to send me notifications when anything is logged to them, so I know that Generals Tree was archived.  I don't bother editing the list mid-month whenever there are any changes or that is all I would do!

About 15 caches were going to come off the list this month, but 30 more were going to be added.  At one time, the list was down to 70 or so caches, but even with <ahem> vigorous -- archival of missing caches by WTR, the list was going to be over 150 caches and ballooning upwards.  It's frankly become too much of a PiTA each month to tabulate (even for a retired guy!).

With that said, I've made an executive decision from this point forward to only include caches not found in 3 years or more in the listBUT, I've expanded the radius to 75 miles from downtown Houston.  This will easily include all of Galveston County, up to Huntsville, out to Brenham, El Campo, down to Freeport, and even a chunk of Beaumont!  We'll see how this goes for a while.  Here we go:

______________________________________________________________________________________________________

September Update: As of August 31st there were 16 active caches within a 75 mile radius of downtown Houston that have not been found in over three years. They are:

  • East Texas’ Hardest Mystery Cache GCNP2K - was last found on 03/19/10 by ggmorton and cachestacker.
  • GCWLGBP: Night Time Ninja Aptitude #10 GC2P4MQ - was last found on 11/18/11 by Benttandem with one DNF since.

I like this.  It feels like we have less work to do now.  In fact, it feels like we have just made major progress!  ;)

Thanks, HC, for keeping this going.

I think that you should make 2 separate bookmarks. Only list the 3+ year caches but also include the 2 year caches in the post. That way we can still work on the 2 year list and they hopefully never make it to the 3 year list.

This seems to make MORE  work for me, not less. ^-^

How about this.  Go to Geocaching.com, Click "Play, then "Find a Geocache".  Click "Take me to the old Search".  Choose "Latitude Longitude Search" and put in N29 45.400, W095 21.800 and a radius of 50 (or 75) miles.  Click "Search".  On the resulting page, click the words "Last Found" at the top of that column, TWICE.  This sorts the results with the longest unfound at the top. Below the events, about halfway down the page, will be the start of the list.  Feel free to go back as far as you want to see unfound caches.  Had I stuck with the old method this month, it would have stretched to the bottom of page 9.

I dont understand how this is more work. You said that you get notifications every time there is something logged or changed on the caches that are all ready in the bookmark, so if you do the steps that you just mentioned shouldnt the new caches that need to be added to the list be at the top (under the events) of the first page? What about pocket queries? Can you filter it by dates if you do a pocket query?

LOL I wasn't saying that he HAD to do it and I wasn't saying that I'm not capable. I appreciate all that Larry does, I just didn't understand how it was more difficult. If he doesn't want to do it anymore that is fine. I'm sorry Larry if you felt like I was pressuring or belittling you and I apologize to everyone else who thought that's what I was doing also.

When HC was working 70 hours a week, he laboriously put this list together.  Now that he's retired, he had to cut back.  It's basic math...

No worries, Tubadude!  I take offense to very few people, outside of BaytownBert.

Pulling the list up on GC.com is a piece of cake.  Looking at each cache, figuring out when it was last found and by whom and how many DNF's since and then typing it into the ever-changing HGCS software, along with a link to each cache, and then adding and editing the bookmarked list each month is what is time consuming.  There is no macro that does that stuff for me.  When I was adding in 5 or 10 new caches each month it was no big deal.  Now it's 30 a month and by this time next year it may be 50 or 60. 

Ain't nobody got time for dat!

Thank you for explaining that. I did not realize you had to type the list out on here. I thought you were given access to copy and paste it.

Not only did I find my 1,000 cache for the year, but it was on a cache that is on HC'S list. A2zman61 and I  found C.J.s (GC388FG) today. It was last found on 11/9/12 so that means there was a 3 year, 1 month, and 20 day gap between finds.
