    Old470 has well over 100 finds, and probably would have 200 DNFs if people would log them.

    I know Fort Williams has a ton of finds. Unfortunately there is no easy way to create a list of the top Finds or DNFs. You'd have to create a GPX file that included all logs for all 2331+ caches.

    It would be nice if it could be done! If we can get together 25 of our members, we can create the database files necessary. That would be less than 100 caches each for us to keep updated. Remember, of course, in order to do this and be within gc.com TOS, the entire database file would have to be created by you, without the use of pocket queries. And, it'd have to be a database of our own design, not copied from GPX / groundspeak. And even then I'm not sure it'd be 100% legal.

    So, it isn't looking good right now. Maybe someone will count up Ft. Williams' numbers and post them on this site, and challenge anyone to find a cache with more finds.

    I have added the highest and lowest elevation caches, but they are still up for discussion, especially the lowest elevation. I don't think there is a cache higher than 5252 feet.

    I also made a few minor adjustments, and added links to chart images for number of caches placed by type and container (Too boring for the main page, so I just linked to them). The small and micro charts really show how those increaed rapidly in 2006.

    Database has been updated to 4/26.

    Default Ranndom Stat:

    Location in Maine in which you are the furthest from any Maine cache as possible: At about N 46 50.8 W -069 50.7 (Map 60 of the Gazateer, on the Maine border not far from Depot lake). At this location, Maine's nearest cache is about 38 miles away.

    Sorry. You can always find the stats link on the left side of the main screen, under articles, or my first post in this thread.

    Or, just say you can't find it and I will post it.
