Seems with the cooler weather and holidays in November we have set a couple of records for caching in Arizona. There were 41 caches hidden in Arizona this November breaking the old record of 40 hidden in September. Also the number of caches searched for and logged set a new record with 744 beating the old record of 657 in September. I wonder if December will be even bigger?
Team "Wyle E" is the first in arizona to break 100 caches (96 of them in arizona at the time of this writing). They did this while keeping a suprisingly low number of not found caches, probably due to incredibly high number of times they were the first person to the cache. Sometimes getting to the caches before they were officially even posted. :)
Congratulations Team Wyle E.
Introducing GPS Drawing, you drive/move around leaving a track of where you have been leaving behind a picture drawn on top of a city street grid, big field or where ever. One person tied their GPS to their dog and ended up with pictures with very eratic lines.
OK.. this is a little on the silly side, but it does look kinda cool when overlaid on top of a map to show where you have been.
The big question is how are we supposed to get stats out of it :)
After an all nighter we now have all our adventures put into a database. This means that we can now input our cache adventures in a very easy way with very little work. This means that hopefully we can get caught up to current with out adventures and then be able to update the site in real time. This will be a lot easier than creating sevral web pages from scratch every time. It also makes it easier to redesign the site quickly and easily as you will witness as the site redesigns itself on the fly with every click using the web themes library that I have been working on for a while now.
We've just added for your testing pleasure some new stats that we (mainly Jason) have been working on for a while now. They are located in the menu on your left. Please give them a try and tell us what you think on on the mailing list or at "geocaching at snaptek dot com". If these work out there will be a lot more on the way. Hopefully this will spur some good conversation.

For those of you that visited this page in the past you probably instantly noticed that we have a new fresh look. The really cool thing about the way we did our page is that if you don't like the way it looks you can click reload/refresh and get a different look. In the future we plan to have a way that you can set your favorite look and have it stay that way, but while we are working on the site we decided to just be cute for now and have it switch randomly.
If you are using a browser with complete PNG support, namely Mozilla or Netscape 6 you will get stuff more correctly like the logo on the top of this page. If you aren't you get a fuzzy looking logo that simulates, badly, the look you will get with the proper browser.
Also while we are switching the look and adding lots and lots of new features and stats, expect thing to now work for short periods of time. If you notice something that appears to be overlooked or have an idea for a new feature that you would like to see please email us at "geocaching at".
