I just looked at our stats and as of right now, we've found 2012 caches in the year 2012. It would be kind of cool to stop now. I doubt that will happen, however.

We were doing really well on keeping our numbers down and expanding our interests until Trekkin' was hauled along with a couple people even nuttier than we are. Oh well. Rolling Eyes

Anyone else have any cool caching numerology observations?

Hmmm... Let's see...
Your find count divided by the number of words in your first post is 14944/72 which is 207. On page 207 of the time wasters' thread, Mathman (Math? Numbers? See the tie-in?) mentions paying $19 for DSL. The 19th word of your post is....
2012
Shocked
That can't be coincidence.

Somewhat related along these line...

Myself personally:
Most minutes spent looking for a cache and finding it, 135.
Most round trip miles walked to a single cache, 11.

OK, while you guys play around with these big numbers, I am going to finish up the work on string theory.

Actually, the longest time spent was counting the words in T&B's first post.
