I was scrolling through GC.com's site this past weekend finishing up some caches that were on my "to do" list when I happened to notice that Smitty & Co. have a ton of caches out there (and most of them I have yet to do) and this made me wonder who out there has placed the most number of caches here in Maine . . . I was particularly impressed with the volume of Smitty's placed caches to his found caches and from personal experience I've enjoyed the few caches of his that I have done.

We were up north this weekend and I think we counted 30 plus that Northwoods Explorer has put out.

aa1yb (http://www.geocaching.com/profile/default.aspx?A=29325) has hidden 33 caches, many of which were Maine's first. Though he's not much of a finder, he gave caching an early start here.

Northwoods Explorer (http://www.geocaching.com/profile/default.aspx?A=381878) has hidden 46 caches.

I have only hidden 5, but there are 34 coordinates used in those 5 :D

Since I love useless statistics I calculated the average find to hide ratio of the top 44 finders in the state according to the link referenced above.

The average is 67:1 or 57:1 if you exclude the 8 who have no hides.

The highest is Team Horwich at 13:1

Wow, tough crowd. You have to have over 500 finds to break into the top 10:p

Slate not that it matters, but I have a total of 25 hides. When I moved from upstate NY I adopted all my caches back there so they could stay active. That helps my ratio a little bit.

Also, my stats do not show here in Maine even though that is where I am at. My cache total is 572 caches found. So I am in the top ten.
