I'm thinking of attempting a 100+ day "just because". My best day is only 30 something, but there are a few areas where 100+ should be easily doable. I've been working on a few friends to have a driver, navigator, and cache grabber/signer. It would be mostly non-descript P&G caches, but with the friends I'm thinking about it would be a fun day.

I did 103 with all 3 boys so it can easily be done, we tackled the Pumpkin trail in Mauston plus some extras thrown in. It was a long day but not terrible.

After about 20 or so P&Gs I'm about ready to quit...I could easily do 100 in a day by myself...but it would be mind-numbingly boring.

I did something like 70ish on Friday at the West Bend event...starting at 11am and finishing at 5ish....those were a combination of event caches and P&Gs.....had I done only P&Gs that day I could have easily hit 150+ in the same amount of time....but then I'd likely never want to see a guard rail or sign again.

Big numbers are not hard to rack up...but there is always a trade off...be it unremarkable views or simply the inability to pop your head up and see where you are in the world.

So, let's say one does do 100+ finds in a day. Doing the logs is a pain, even with copying and pasting. We've seen references to using a GSAK feature (macro?) that can expedite this process. Can anyone shed some light on exactly how this is done?

Well, we just spent a little time playing around with this and we might have it figured out!

We're considering a big numbers run as well...it's always exciting to find those special road signs you didn't know existed or the elusive hidden treasure of a shiny guard rail.

When I did my 150 cache day, which included the pumpkin trail, I had all of my logging done on my GPS. After loading them up to GC, it saved time because I had my checklist on the screen. I now think that using an app like c:geo would have been even better use of my time. I could have gotten my route to the next cache and also logged the last cache in real time to the GC site.

Let me know when and where you are thinking of your cache raid run. I might like to join you, as I am trying to best last years total of 800 finds. I already have 706 to date.

My yearly breakdown

2009 401 1.5483 caches/day
2010 351 0.9616 caches/day
2011 217 0.5945 caches/day
2012 101 0.4298 caches/day

Yup, yup. Hardcore geocachers have found more in a few days than I have in all of my 3+ years of geocaching.

I'd like to know about this macro myself.
