My idea is to clean up everything in my proximity, but obviously it's not working, my closest unfound is just 0.8 km far away :)

At one point I was down to 40 unfound caches within 50 miles of Bangor. Now there are 620 unfound in that circle! I honestly thought I'd find them all (back in '05 or '06).

My closest is "Taco Treats" .8 miles away. I've been out there 3 times and nobody has found it since September.

At one point I was down to 0 unfound caches within 500000 miles of Bangor, it was back in 1990 :)

I'm shopping every day there, but never went after Taco or the another one :)

I have 377 within a 50 mile radius of home. My nearest unfound is only .59 away. That one is across the river though.

My closest unfound is .48 miles away.

My closest unfound that I am sure I want to find someday is 3.7 miles away.

Excluding events of course...

Well we've got one at .5 and two at .8. The rest are over a mile. I guess we should start cleaning them up! :rolleyes:

I actually like puzzle caches, but I'd like to be rewarded for my efforts at the cache site. I have not been informed this is the case with the puzzle caches closest to me, so they are not on my "must do" list. However, I do have a few of the puzzles solved and will probably go do them someday. Perhaps I'll walk or bike to them from the house and get some much needed exercise while doing those.

We've got a puzzle cache 3.5 miles and a traditional cache 4.4 miles from us that are the closest unfound caches to our house. Neither of us is in a big hurry to do puzzle caches so that one may remain unfound in the foreseeable future.

It depends! Back in Maine at one time it was almost 30 miles and then all those caches started appearing. Here in PA it is like 3 miles, but here in PA I have over 4000 within 50 miles! Fun! Wow!

When those were placed he was in Maine. I have adopted a couple others he had. This one is far ragening and a lot of stages are missing.
