One Degree of Separation - Ducky on the Lake
This project was launched to unite the entire geocaching continuum together at one point using the "Small World Theory" as it pertains to geocaching.
If even half of the nearly 13,000 caches originally released on 5/26/2006 get placed as a geocache, no geocacher in the entire world (with even 1 find) should be able to go much beyond 3 degrees of separation from every other geocacher in the world, but the REAL object of this project is to bring that number down to 1 degree for as many geocachers as possible.
One Degree of Separation is a project that has been taking shape and GROWING for nearly 3 years. It's a variation of the "Small World" concept that was proposed in the early 20th century. Many people are familiar with the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" game, but few know just how far back the idea goes.

To visually see how the project grows over time check the ODS: PRIME! geocaching profile stats Many other goals will be posted as the project grows, but here are a few.
#1 To have an active ODS cache hidden on ALL 7 continents.
#2 To have an ODS cache hidden in all 50 states.
#3 To have an ODS cache hidden in a number of foriegn countries, by milestone, 10 countries at a time. First milestone 10 then 20 and so on.
#4 To have an ODS cache hidden in every county in Texas.
More goals will be posted on the ODS website....
Thank you for participating in what is sure to be a noteworthy point in geocaching history.
