A fairly simple link to my first cache:

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=4713

and if you look for it anywhere on the website, you get this:

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=0f1cd000-6591-497d-8c0d-1c084f23fdbc

The website SUCKS ! I hate the "improvements"

<~ edit ~> Sorry, my example is "members-only"

What am I missing? I don't see a problem.

I'm trying to build my own "my caches" list, like they used to be listed. I have a lot of the ID numbers, plus it's kind of cool to see where they rank. Is this the 4713th cache placed? What number did they start at?

Anyway, NOW I would have to copy/paste crap like this:

=0f1cd000-6591-497d-8c0d-1c084f23fdbc

I guess I could start over, and use the waypoint links.

... or just forget about it. They're all gonna disappear anyway.

Mouse-over the "Watchlist" button. It lists the cache ID number still.

Take, for example, the Breakfast Buddies event:

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=33657bcd-a796-4155-9e36-f10ceef5b4f9

http://www.geocaching.com/my/watchlist.aspx?w=178258

The 178258 is the cache ID.

I just got frustrated when I was linking to cache pages elsewhere by cacheID and found that they had changed it (months ago BTW) to those stupidly long asdjfasd9f892j45s9d8f09 things).

This was the easiest solution I could find outside of using the waypoint link.

Jod did this because someday the number of caches will exceed the number that a signed 32-bit integer can hold (about 2 billion). Rather than have a flag day, he decided to make the change early and head off the inevitable. I heard some guy was hiding caches at an incredible rate.

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=gc1269 still works.

http://www.geocaching.com/about/guidelines.aspx#vacation

In Wisconsin, on Hwy 21, from I-94 to I-39 there are three Lil Otter caches very close. A few others are in the area. I don't remember the distance (50-60 miles?) but it's incredible the number of county parks, city parks, etc. along that route.

I could have easily placed 10 caches, but I was on "vacation"
