And there you have it. After three years, a new all-time leader.

Congrats (again) HP2!

Shocked

And they managed to do what I could not in just one year.

Let see now, if this game started in Jan of 08 and the leader of that contentious first month was not determined (the lead flip-flopped a few times) until the end of Jan, indeed on or about Fed 7th of 2008 and the current lead is unquestionable on Jan 10th and will likely not change, would the former leader actually have held the throne for 3 full years? I'm just sayin...

just seeing if Dave is paying attention Wink

Ah....what the heck does that even mean? Shocked

I have long thought that the "ALL" stats should just be eliminated because I thought it discourages new players from coming into the game, after all, if the ALL are what is the measure, then how can someone coming into the game 2 or 3 years after its inception ever hope to gain ground? No team in sports starts out the season building on its cumulative record from the last year, etc.

But...I guess I was proven wrong.

And it's all just for fun anyway, right? Razz

I will continue to give the same amount of respect to the initial LCG players as I do to the players with only 1 LCG find.

Now, sniping...that's another thing all together!! wink

But your right! Who'd a thunk that HP2 could amass that many points in 12 monthes?

The gauntlet is out! Will we get a new high water mark a year from now, from some yet-to-be-named cacher? Or will HP2 try to better themselves?

Either way, the cache community wins. Geotrash is removed and maintenance decisions are made on missing CO's property. Or an out-of the-way cache is visited once more, and a nice log (or not!) is written.

Have some more fun, LCG players! I salute you all! Very Happy

I echo Jim's comments. I do it because it's fun and adds another element to the game. In my current scenario I don't see any means to compete with the HP2 team, but that's a bit irrelevent. I've got to experience some great caches (and some not so great) because of the LCG. Generally those that were "not so great" were because of CO maintenance issues. Those that "were great" were because of the challenge and/or location which has led me to bypass many caches that would easily give me more numbers.

It's all in good fun. I see I came in 6th place last year. Not bad for a year I didn't think I was going to play at all.

Had to give Dave a little jab for enticing me back in the game early on last year when he brought up the ALL time lead thing, which I too never really considered part of the contest.

As much as none of us want to admit it, there is some element of competition in this or there wouldn't be any tallies in the first place. How much influence that has on our state of play we each determine in our own way.

I let myself get "into" that ALL time lead chase and probably put myself out there more that I should have last year because of it.

Sure is nice to sit back and watch from the sidelines now. This year's goal? Beat -cheeto- and come in 71st!

Hrmm..I see I'm going to have to push Dave a little to keep finding just enough to drive Alex nutz so he runs all over at 3 in the morning.... that should keep the numbers flowing this year Razz

Congrats HP2!

Can't say I didn't have fun caching twilight through daybreak in the north woods or going on 36-hour LCG binges, but that train left a long time ago. Last year's windows were only open for a few hours at a crack, save one memorable over-nighter Wink and this year... let's just say I have only one LCG cache on my radar and right now I fear it is encased in ice!

Like everyone who gets sucked in, I did have a blast playing and the competition was always in good sport, although a couple times when I sandbagged it did get a little dicey. I'd encourage everyone to play, just make sure you balance the things that really matter in this life with this past time and don't let it tip the scale too far.

I may be done with the 3am moonlighting for points, but I wouldn't be surprised to find myself placing a cache at that early hour.

Year 5 is going to be a banner year for S|S!
