We recently asked: How many caches have you hidden?

After tallying all the answers, we found that on average cachers have hidden 104 caches, including hosting events. I think this data might be a bit skewed as we had some very prolific hiders chime in. So here’s what we heard:

  • Jack of JacknBerli on Twitter shared: Around 300. Most are still active. Started hiding one week after we started Geocaching in 2013!
  • Ed Shaper shared: 188 but lots of those are events.
  • Charlie on Facebook shared: This is a very timely question. Currently, we've published 39 caches, including 15 Earthcaches and 4 events. On Groundhog Day this year, we'll be putting out an additional 37 puzzle caches as part of a project to do an 81 grid of puzzles. This will make 43 out or 81 done. 26 of the 37 are also form a small piece of geoart in the area.
  • Al shared: None. I'm more of a hunter than a hider, but I'm working on my first hide. I'm going for one that will gather a lot of favorite points.
  • For those wondering, I’ve hidden 249 caches: 100 on my main account including 28 events, 113 on another group account for maintaining a power trail about 30 miles west of Spokane, and 36 on our Cache Advance profile, most of those are the current Filmed in Spokane GeoTour and 5 events.

As always, we really enjoyed hearing about hiding caches. You can to, if you-
