Geocaching app says there is 863,461 Official Geocaches World Wide.... Anyone going to try and fight to get the big 1mil?

Tough to tell when there will be 1 mill. As fast as caches get published daily, there are several being archived.

We'll see what happens.

Logically (from my perspective) is that as more caches are added each day more are archived each day until it balances out at a number that may or may not be over 1,000,000

Created vs Archived - I agree there is a lot of change however, it has gone up several thousand in the last month so my thought is that the ratio is still in the placed's favor.

cheezehead - thats a good question, a lot of planning and getting the reviewers jacked up on energy drinks to stay awake Razz

866,963 caches as of this post. About 3 thousand more since the opening post of this thread. Assuming it keeps this pace, I would estimate the 1,000,000th cache in about 177 days.

997,008 caches now... less than 3000 left to go. Don't think we'll get the ones we've been working on out in time to be the lucky 1,000,000. Sad

Now, Cheezehead... Do you really think such an honor as the 1,000,000th hide would be allowed to occur north of Highway 64? Laughing

And this is interesting because the main page only lists active caches. Like the stock market this value can rise / fall (mostly rise hopefully), but how is anyone going to know which one it is / was?
