If you like to keep tabs on your Geocaching statistics, you’ll just love CacheStats 3.0!

How has your find rate been holding up over the years? What are your longest streaks? Want to see what it will take to reach your end-of-year goal? CacheStats analyzes your “My Finds” pocket query to find out all this and more!

CacheStats 3.0 Released!

CacheStats is a free Geocaching statistics program created by Doug from LogicWeave, who, when not creating great software spends his spare time Geocaching. I guess you can say that CacheStats was made by a Geocacher for Geocachers! :) The program offers a plethora of statistics presented in an easy-to-read, friendly manner that includes your find rate, averages, yearly data, milestones, a goal calculator, cache info and a whole lot more.

We have had CacheStats listed in the Geocaching Resource Directory since December 2007 but we had never got around to trying it out – our loss. Now, since we have installed it we can’t see caching without it!

The 2009 Geocaching Kickoff Into SpringMar 23, 2009

We had a great time on Saturday at the annual Nova Scotia Geocaching Spring Kickoff. It was a fantastic afternoon of getting together with friends and family!

This is the fourth year for this event and it gets better every year! As in past years it was held at Curly Portables in Enfield, about 30 minutes outside of the Halifax city core.

The 2009 Geocaching Kickoff Into Spring

This year saw the biggest turnout for this event with 102 Geocaching teams signing the log. This translated into a total of 161 people attending! There were several people from out of province, from as far away as Ontario, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. There were even some Geocachers who arrived that did not know that the event was going on – they logged in, met some new folks and had a great time!

We shared a table with our friends, the ‘Geotrekkers’, and spent the afternoon exchanging caching stories, travel experiences and caught up on recent news. We had a lot of laughs as we spoke and joked with other cachers who dropped by our table and those we met as we walked around dropping by other cachers tables. We also had a great meal. Yes, it was definitely a party. :)

In addition to the great food there was a bunch of prizes to be won, a 50/50 draw and a Travel Bug auction. The door prizes included carry bags, caching goodies, t-shirts, a ready-to-go Geocache, a set of unactivated silver provincial ACGA coins and more.
