Let's not go there....
Time for a 60 Minutes style name and shame session
But I do now avoid caches placed by particular teams, and I'm ultraquick to do maintenance visits after visits by others.

Whilst people may imagine it to be hard it is quite achievable to do more than 5 or 6 caches in an hour if you pick the ones you do. I have done 10 in under 2 hours and if there had of been enough of the unfound traditional caches left in Perth I may have continued at that rate but I switched to doing long multi caches.djcache wrote:Chwiliwr,
This helps but the timing is the issue that interests me. As stated earlier in the thread, you need to find each cache in an average time of 14 mins & a bit even if you cache for 24 hours straight. T
That includes everything, travel between caches as well.
Drop it to 18 hours and the time decreases to about 10 mins per find.
Now there are always going to be caches that should take at least that long or more to find with out the travel to the cache even if the degree of difficulty is low. There will admittedly be ones that take less time too but maintaining a find rate of 10mins a cache including travel (over what distance does walking or running become faster than vehicle travel - bicycles are easier to park....) , logging the find, rehiding and any other delay (toilet, traffic, finding a park, muggles etc.) may require the skills of the man in the red and blue suit who changes in phone boxes.
Lets work on the 18 hours attempts used by others here - That means even if it takes you only 3 mins to travel between each cache you have less than 7 minutes to find it log it and rehide it to get 100 caches.
Good luck. Even with a driver.
And if there are multis in it one presumes that prefinding has been used as you might as well forget 10 mins even for an easy multi.
