Why does it seem like new caches are down in numbers?

In my area, Fargo/Moorhead the number of cachers hiding is really down. There is only one other person that is hiding besides myself.

Is everyone switching to that Pokey man craze?

Do you have a lot of area finders? If so, maybe host an event to get people together...sometimes "spreading the fever" helps.

The next event in the area is Sunday, Sept 11th. The last event was not well attended in May-there were 4 of us and two of them were the host and hostess that I took them out caching afterward, so they could get a FTF that I hide because of the event.

Most of the finders are just passing through "fly over" territory. Most of the regulars have quit finding also, so I was thinking that people must be doing the latest electronic "thing".

I've still got a couple of hides I am working on, but with school starting this past week I haven't had as much time for geocaching. Hopefully I will be able to get some stuff done in the next couple of months, but a lot of that depends on how busy I end up being.

Right now I am thinking we will be at the September 11th event, unless plans change and we end up being out of town.
