1 Year Geocaching

Today a year ago my good friend Fahrbereitschaft introduced me to the wonder of Geocaching and helped me find the first couple of Caches.

In the last year I found 150 Caches in 12 countries all around the world :).

Here are some statistics about my finds:

Statistics generated on 20.06.2013
pratchettfan has a total of 150 finds at 150 different geocaches since 22.06.2012
( 401 mdCachingPoints )

Average finds per month* 12.6
Average finds per year* 150.8
Year: 20122013
Caching days: 47 22
*The 'Average' is an projected average taking into account the exact timespan between first caching day and gpx file date.
Example: If you started caching a week ago with 1 find the projected average will be 52 finds/year (1 per week).

Since 16th August I carry with me a personal GeoCoin in the form of Shark Tooth, logging it in every Cache I find. So you can see my travels since mid-August on a handy map:

I'm looking forward to the next year of caching and wonder what it will have in store :)
