GQotDPinterestHey Cachers! This is Lookout Lisa from Cache Advance, and I’m your host for the Geocaching Question of the Day.

Cache Advance is your geocaching hub for all of your caching needs, including the Cache Crate, a monthly subscription box of geocaching and outdoor gear.

Now you can hear the recap on the Podcacher Podcast with the Geocaching Question of the Day weekly!  Tune in Sunday night for this week's question recap.

We recently asked: Geocaching Question of the Day: How far is your Find Farthest from Home?

Geocachers definitely like to travel! Lots of interesting travel and holiday stories were shared. So here’s what we heard:

  • Kari on G+ shared: 1600 miles. Nothing is very far when you live in the middle of North America.
  • Tom shared: You got me beat, Kari, but not by much. 1,528 miles here, and for the same reason - I'm near the middle of the continent. Getting much farther away requires travel to remote places with extreme climates, or crossing an ocean or two.
  • David on Twitter shared: 1,376 miles from home while in Jamaica on a cruise.
  • Dora shared : 7,903 km (from BC Canada to Osaka Japan)
  • Don on FB shared: 9,249 miles from home, between my home in the U.S. and a cache I found while on a trip to Australia. BTW, on another trip I have another in which I found 2 caches that were 9,226 miles apart... ON THE SAME DAY.
  • Guy shared: 7417.31 Miles away found while I was deployed to Afghanistan –thank you for your service!
  • My furthest is 4851, a virtual in France. I was chaperoning my nieces on a European trip in 2005 and also got my furthest North find in Northern Scotland about a week later!

As always, we really enjoyed hearing about geocaching adventures, and you can too, if you-
