Almost 15,000 Geocaches Found!

Posted in Featured on Jan 31, 2008

While adding sites to the Geocaching Online Resource Directory we frequently come across some that we want to bring special attention to but up until now we couldn’t figure out how. We thought of special icons or a top list but this didn’t do it for us. So what we have decided to do is to add a new category to the blog section of Geocaching Online called ‘Featured’ where we will feature these sites we come across.

The first Geocacher’s website we will feature in this new category is ‘Geocaching with EMC of Northridge, CA’.

Elin Carlson

The ‘EMC’ in the site title is the initials for Geocacher Elin Carlson. Elin began Geocaching on Memorial Day weekend, 2004 (though she joined GC in 2003), and has found over 3,000 caches each year since. At the time of writing she has logged 14623 Geocaches found! Yes, you read that right. She is currently ranked #3 in the world! Her cache finds run the full gamut of traditional, multi, virtual, etc. caches. She is also a Platinum EarthCache Master with 33 EarthCache finds.

In addition to her finds she is also an avid hider too! She has logged 117 Geocache Hides to date.

We’re not sure where she finds the time but when Elin is not Geocaching you can probably find her singing. She is a professional singer and performs classical music and opera, but also sings jazz, pop, and film scores.

Although her website is relatively new she says that she will be posting a weekly review of her Geocaching adventures. With 3000 caches a year this should be an interesting read as her recent posts prove.

She is also in the process of writing an eBook about her Geocaching experiences.

Erin is an inspiration and we will be frequenting her blog. You should too!

    Somehow, finding 3000 caches a year seems to take the fun out of the sport.

    Hey, thanks for the nice post!
    I’m having fun chronicling my caching experiences, and hope to add more actual photos and videos that I take.
    I also hope to connect with more geocachers worldwide online and in person.

    p.s. Aaron, trust me that the number of caches I find does NOT diminish the fun! If anything, it really increases it! I enjoy caching in all its permutations, from the one on the mountaintop to the 100 urbans in a day. Whee!

    One on a mountaintop? Now there’s something we can do! Well, perhaps on a hilltop… a little hilltop :)

    And a hundred in a day… sheesh, I guess it’s time to put them ol’ hiking boots on :)

    Like we said, inspriring, very inspiring… thanks for the comments
