    And I question the validity of this many finds. Unless there's a micro under EVERY lightpost, this seems impossible.

    Here is link to Today's Cacher describing a previous 24 hour record that has been broken since then and I'll try and find the link to the new record holders
    article.

    Couldn't find the correct article but the record was set at Geowoodstock 111 in a 24 hour periond it was 263 caches by these cachers. They were hoping for 275.

    As mentioned by others I can't imagine doing that many caches would be much fun . . . I'm guessing that there were not very many scenic caches or long walks (shoot, sounds like there were not many short walks either).

    Personally, I would rather do a handful and remember each and every one then do a blitz like this and not be able to remember #5 from #112. When I cache (even on my geocaching blitz-days -- every third weekend since that's when I have a whole day to myself since Heidi works) I'm able to remember each and every cache and to me that's what makes geocaching great. But then again, this is just me.

    Not sure what our personal best is (Sheesh! Who worries about the numbers? ), but we grabbed 15 today in southern Masachusetts and Rhode Island, and only ONE was an "urban micro".

    (Hey! There are some BEAUTIFUL parks in southern Rhode Island. We're glad we came.)

    I did 19 today and not a one was a micro. In fact most were in the woods. I must have walked 6 or 8 miles throughout the day. A lot of fun though, especially with all the flooding around Concord.

    Msteelee and me beat our old record onf 11 Maine caches in a day and jumped up to 24, most of them got in the micro capital of Maine (Lewiston). We didn';t push real hard, even hit a few yard sales in the process. Why isn't there a yard sale locationless? I must admit, I'm not as proud of those 24 as I am of my first record of 11 in a day, which was in the Boothbay area. Some micros may be hard to find, but some are very predictable, and not having to walk even a quarter mile to a cache sure cuts down on the time it takes to do them.
