On my own blog, no less.
I made this braggadocio entry about my mileage and states knocked off the list with a find and then a single commenter weighs in: Lotrat, with some even more impressive stats. 18:32 with 56K miles and including a pair of smileys in China.
I’m jealous. I was supposed to go to Hong Kong this year but kept missing my connection due to weather delays. When I heard Lotrat was heading over there for a trip I knew he’d have a couple to throw in my face. Punk.
Now go get one in North Korea and I’ll stay impressed. Just one- that’s all you need to log. 😉

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…
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. 😉
