How many found in between home and your nearest unfound.

For all your general chit chat, caching or not.

How many found in between home and your nearest unfound.

Post by McPhan » 08 January 12 7:23 pm

I was doodling around with my 2 GSAK databases (Found and Unfound) and thought I'd check how many cache I had found that were closer than my nearest Unfound cache (4.4km). So I did a filter for a distance of less than or equal to 4.3km and was staggered that I have found 102 caches in that radius. This number is the total of GC and GCA finds of all types, including archived.

Now there is a huge caching wilderness to my west so there must be some cachers that have some big found numbers between home and their nearest Unfound.

Care to share?

It depends... If you include trig points, then my number is 11 found in <=16.44 Km...
However I don't really chase trig points (even though I have found a couple...)...

So, excluding Trig points, my number is 34 found within <=43.49Km (35 if you include the 1 Trig I've found :wink: )

An interesting stat, I must say...

Interesting concept but my closest unfound cache is a puzzle only 1.9 km away so I only have 9 found within that distance.

After posting I realised that I was using two different home locations. Matching them makes it 122 finds within 5.2km.

Forgot to mention that I left frogs/gnomes off the nearest unfound as they tend to, well.... move.

I can find the GC stat easily enough - 14 found caches between me & my nearest unfound, plus another 2 owned by me.

GCA included - not sure how to find that one. The unfound GC is closer to home than the closest unfound GCA, just not sure how to tell how many found GCA caches there are in that radius.

I have 193 caches found between home and my nearest unfound (on GC.com), including 115 GC and 78 GCA caches.

I have 117 GCA caches found before my nearest unfound GCA cache.

I need to stop being obsessed!?!

...Nearest unfound is 650m away (A crappy poor maintained multi. Ahem.)

There's two in between that distance!! (Which is kinda disturbing, but hey, i love cache density)

Nearest unfound is just 11.9km away... I really should go and find that one... (Its a 1.5/1.5 small traditional :shock: )
I have found 35 within that radius...

My nearest unfound is 13.03 Ks away & I have found 48 combined caches out to that distance. However I don't look for all cache types or sizes & use GSAK to weed out caches as well. Checked Groundspeak & if I looked for every cache that was published the difference would only be an extra 5. Of course if I ignored GSAK & used the nearest unfound cache per a search of Groundspeak then I would have found 2.

My nearest unfound is 15.2KM away. I have a total of 47 finds and 2 hides inside this radius and there are no others to find. One of the features of caching out of the cities and built up areas. While I do live in a larger rural city we only have about a dozen cachers putting hides out up here so it is not hard to keep on top of them.
The closest 100 caches to me are up to 26.1KM radius. Out of those I have 15 still to find. Some I can't do because they are 4wheel drive and my i30 would not make it to the locations. Others I am saving for days I need a find on a particular day etc.

I have found/own 78 between home and the nearest unfound cache which I wont be finding for a while because it is a paddle cache. However if you exclude that one and go to the NEXT unfound (a puzzle about Electrical Engineering), I have found/own 161 between home and it.

And then just for the fun of it, there are 203 caches within 10km of my home (including my own caches) and I am yet to find 8 of them. Has anybody else managed to clear out a 10km radius where there are at least 150 caches inside of it? I know some people that live in rural areas would have an easy time clearing out 10km so they focus on other challenges (maybe 100km?).

Nearest unfound 1.78km from home, 47 found caches within that radius (some are corrected coordinates, some are not though).
If I find that one new traditional at 1.78, radius goes to 2.02 and found count to 67. After that there's a mystery which will be a bug-bear for some time (Squeaky's Heart).

I wonder if there's enough info above for people to work out where I live. I'm sure if I made it a cache puzzle I'd have visitors pretty quickly. :D

My nearest unfound is a mere 1.5km away (the rate of in-fill around here in the last 6 months is hard to believe). My number of finds in that radius (including archived etc) is 27.

Thats a density of 18/km, so both McPhan (23.7) and Team Unicycle (26.4) have me there.

My nearest unfound cache is currently 23.7km away. I have found the 248 caches closer than that cache. GC Only.

46, but my closest was only published this week. Once that is found it extends out to 142.
