I just noticed that Room 104 of Watertown S.D. Has passed our King Boreas as #1 hider of geocaches world wide with 3420 hidden Shocked . KB has 3108 to date. Better get busy Ian! Wink

I've cached in SD and have MANY room104 finds to my name. I'd like to say that KB has very few, IF ANY, P&Gs, outside of challenges that is. Point is, KB's position took MUCH MORE effort than room104's did.

That's a good point.

I have family in So. Dak. so I visit often and found many room 104 hides. I do know there's a difference, style location and container. There is the KB style hide and the room 104 style.

KB has nothing to prove. We know who's King!

I'd hate to be a Minnesota reviewer when KB decides to regain his title. Laughing

You could adopt my 150 caches, that'd give you a big jump.

Room104 has many caches that are on bridges and in cemetaries in SD. Neither of these are allowed in MN that I am aware of, plus most of his are micro P-n-G's. It is nice if your just looking for numbers, but they do get old after a while. He resides in Watertown and if you look at a map around there he has literally driven down every mile around (out of) town and placed caches on signs, bridges, and such. You could literally drive straight down a gravel road and pick up 60 caches in a row.

I'm always happy to look for a KB cache cause I know it will be a good one.

I'd say that's much more important than anything.

I just got finished caching with Team Stevecat today. I can tell you that he has an 800 cache power trail to his credit along Route 66 here in California.

Clay4 put out the ET Power trail.

So I guess if KB were to create a power trail from one end of the state to the other he could play that game as well.

It just goes to show you that it's not all about the numbers.
