I'd be willing to bet that the "Frog" knows and keeps tracks somehow. I'm sure they will do something when it happens.

Too bad they couldn't give away a 10,000 gift card like itunes just did.

Well, it was passed yesterday. Currently 1,001,001 caches.

On the national forums' thread there doesn't seem to be any indication of which cache it was, and perhaps the frog needs to do a magical query to find this out, but I suspect we'll know sooner or later.

FYI, the answer is "We have no way of knowing." In case you missed it in the newsletter:

Quote:
This is not the millionth cache ever hidden, since caches have been archived over the years, but the millionth active cache listing. There is no way to pinpoint who owns the cache, since every time a cache is archived, this changes. Therefore, if you hid a cache on the 8th, the millionth might have been yours at some point during the day!

Here are some interesting facts that show how quickly geocaching has grown in the last couple of years:
• We hit 500,000 active caches on 12/31/2007
• Geocaching.com had 531,000 active caches listed as of 3/3/2008
• There were 741,000 active caches as of 3/3/2009


Over 1/4 million hides in the last year. I bet the bison tube, matchstick container, and broken blinkie light industries are wondering what the heck is going on.

Going through the old logs and found this thread. Just so everyone knows, I hid the 1,000,000th active cache ... at least I had a cache published on the day that 1,000,000 was surpassed, so it's possible. And since there is no way for anyone to disprove it, I am claiming it Laughing
