On this last day of the year, with the leading team currently caching in Arizona and the next closest player nearly 2,400 points back Shocked Shocked Shocked, I think it's pretty safe to call it for 2010.

As if there were ever any doubt, the Lonely Cache Game has crowned a new king—and queen! Starting off the year on a tear of 733 points in January on 62 finds, HuffinPuffin2 proceeded to smash records, including:

-Greatest number of monthly points (781.5)
-Greatest single-season point total (3842),
-The all-time record for lonely caches found, at 367 and counting.

Looking at the all-time leader board is equally remarkable. HP2 did in a mere 15 months what it had taken us veterans three years to accomplish. It's also worth noting that they did it the hard way, with nearly 97% of their LCG reports coming from new finds (just 14 revisits Shocked); and without having the benefit of "maintenance points" available to players in years past.

While they could have easily blown by the all-time cumulative points total in 2010, they took their foot off the gas pedal in December to show a little mercy wink ....but I have a feeling January, with a fresh list, will be a busy month… Very Happy

I'm amazed and tip my hat to this great team. They're great people in person, that write fantastic logs, and appear to have a great time doing it. I can honestly say, "I'm jealous." It's apparent they have a great relationship and have an enormous passion for the sport.

Yes, the HP2 team found out how much fun the LCG is! Congrats! Very Happy

Plenty of room for more cachers to join the party!

By the way... will there be a LCG Party this year?

I bow before the amazingness of all the top players, and I'm a little surprised that my 11 points Embarassed for the year didn't have me in dead last. Of course now that I've tried it, 2011 will hopefully include a lot more LCG caches.

Way to go HP2! Amazing persistance you have I thought my 200 point months were exhausting I can't even imagine 700+

I feel like a winner because I was ahead of you 2 months! not many can say they out scored HP2.

again congratulations

Yes, there is something uniquely special about the lonely cache game. The bug can bite hard, and it couldn't have happened to a better team. Hats off to Andy and Linda for all the new plateaus they showed us! Cool

If you want, we could make this a WGA event. We could probably get the board to kick in some door prizes.
