2011 Caches – Best Caches?

The best caches? – well, maybe!

This list is by the percentage of finders who awarded a favourite.  However, for many of these caches the sample size is very small and arguably not representative.  But, if you haven’t found it, you can’t rate it!

One thing for certain, Puzzle caches were very much absent from the lists of popular caches and caches by favourites, but they certainly appear in this list.  This is probably because although most cachers just avoid puzzle caches, those who enjoy them do so enthusiastically and then award favourites to these caches.

  1. The API for third party applications will return members only caches without checking if the person running the query is a member (or at least it used to). When I started geocaching I used to cache & log finds through a Symbian app called geocache navigator. It took me a while (and a strict email from Miss) to figure out why I couldn’t see the caches I logged on the website (but they did count as a find)

  2. I wondered if anybody would comment on that. Only premium members get favourites to award and the percentage only includes premium members. So in this case 2 of the finds were not premium members. However, this is a premium member only cache so this shouldn’t happen. I have checked other caches and the same has occured. Either they were premium members at the time they logged it or there is a loophole in the system that allows non premium members to log a premium member only cache. I will investigate further.
