I know, this is probably obsessive-compulsive, but I had a whopping half hour to myself on business in Maryland and just had to check that Geocaching box…

State Map as of May 1, 09

State Map as of May 1, 09

I have a personal goal of caching every US state in the next few years.  This map marks my progress nicely.  I do like the cool color coded state maps you can get from Itsnotaboutthenumbers, but this one will do in a pinch.  I generated this one using LogicWeave’s Cache Stats.  INATN (short form) actually has my favorite statistic right there on the front page when you upload your PQ:

Approximate cache-to-cache distance: 67623.42 miles (108829.34 kilometres)

That’s just over 54 miles travelled per Geocache logged.  I knew I got around for work a bit but these numbers just blew me away!  I love looking at maps like these.  If you have a blog or profile with your map posted, drop a link to it in the comments for all to see, especially if you have a map looking better (more complete) than mine.  And if you have a nearly complete county map for your home state, drop a link to that, too!

I’m happy to live vicariously through the caching exploits of others.  😉

Ya damned straight- I got pwned on the first comment. That’s worth it’s own post.
