    I love the statistics page! I really enjoy charts and graphs and numbers, so I think it is really interesting to see my stats.

  • Wenin

    I made an attempt to geocache for 365 straight days, but work and the lack of geocaches close enough for lunch caused me to quit that effort. I’m now trying to fill my first set of a cache on every day.

  • Mike Sherwood

    I would like to see some additional stats on finds of caches that are older than 10 yrs old. “Historic caches pre 2003 have become a major focus for me.

  • Barbara Ower

    We’re just getting started with statistics, but we like to track finds by cache owner.

  • Stonagal

    One stat that I pay the most attention to is “percentage of finds by cache type”. I’ve made it a personal goal not to exceed 90% traditional. By making a point of solving puzzles, meeting challenges, and going to events, I’ve been holding steady at about 84% traditional for several months.
