How far can you go...or have been

Post by McPhan » 09 February 07 8:05 am

We can all find out who our top cache locators are. But who has travelled the furthest?

http://www.itsnotaboutthenumbers.com/

Since August 06 = 9234km. I'm sure some of our early starters must have astronomical distances travelled finding bits of plastic.

Let the challenge begin.

6,6481.17 miles (106,991.07 kilometres)

That could be right... maybe. Given some of my caches have been found overseas thats a lot of plane travelling kilometres included. Still, seems an awful lot....

Well now that you've joined, maybe another graph or chart needs to be done that's a bit more accurate? :lol:

20575.25 kilometres, which would be about accurate for us.

I believe that this will only be accurate if you regularly log your caches in the same order you found them.

EDIT: Oh... and it looks like I'm the only Australian who's bothered to set their country... at least that puts me at the top of the table for Australian's :-)

I made the world top 10 for a long log.

Was for the Dubbo Gold Rush.

Garners outstrip me on just about everything on the Australian list.

78297.79 miles (126008.08 kilometres)

There's a few caches in the US there, although they were all on the same trip, so only one flight included.
Also, if Mama Bear was finding and logging caches in Perth while Papa Bear was doing the same back home in NZ, that might've ping-ponged a few times, adding 10,000km a time!

How do you calculate your KM's travelled?

EDIT: Disregard this silly question :oops: :oops: :oops:
