2017 Caching Diary

2017 Caching Diary

2017 caching adventures in pseudo real-time, sort of. Or not.

2016 Caching Diary

2016 proved to be my slowest caching year since 2012, but what I did do was mainly very good.
2015 Caching Diary

2015 Caching Diary

Back on the caching trail for another year, this year armed with a new Garmin Montana, which it took a while to figure out.
2013 Caching Diary

2013 Caching Diary

2013’s project was going to be to try to fill up my “Days I’ve Been Caching” matrix on the stats page. Or maybe the “Finds by Date Placed.” Or the “Finds by Month Placed." One of those.

UK & Ireland Counties

Months Placed Matrix

Days Placed Matrix

Days Placed Matrix

These pictures show my progress through the "Days Placed" matrix.
