I love geocaching and one thing for me is about the numbers! Yes, I admit it, it’s nice to see a BIG number when you log in and see how many you have found, and to compare yourself to others. But it’s also not just about the Numbers.
So how can you find what your geocaching statistics are? I use geocaching tools called It’s Not About the Numbers that is FREE. It walks you through the whole process, to go geocaching website, get your personal file, and the upload it. It allows you to export it through an HTML export that you can them copy to anywhere else you like – on your geocaching profile page, on a personal geocaching website or blog, like this one, or anything else you can think of.
Part of the geocaching tools that I like so much is the visual nature of what your geocaching statistics are. You can see the states or places across the world that you have been geocaching. I’ve gotten a few geocaches in Europe now, with Cyprus being a place I had great fun in.
You can also see the Combination grid of terrain and difficulty. This is my favorite thing to look at because I’d like to have at least one entry in each box. I tried for a 5/5 geocache a few weeks ago, but alas it was not to be. I’ll be back for that one though to get it included in my numbers.
The geocaching tools also includes the type of geocaches you have found and the size of the geocaches when you go geocaching. The most common type of geocache is the traditional geocache but I’ve tried to get a few different ones like the virtual or webcam versions.
So go ahead and see my geocaching statistics and try adding yours to your geocaching website. And maybe you’ll agree with me that It’s not just about the Numbers….
