A while ago I has compared our puzzle density to other metro areas and I couldn't find an area with more puzzles in a 25-mile radius other than Seattle. Well I just checked again today, and we just passed Seattle. Smile Doing an advanced search for Unknown caches by postal code, I get 976 for 55401, 970 for 98115. Nice work people! Very Happy Does anyone know of an area with more puzzles?

That was sort of what I was thinking, but then I hate puzzles... Confused

Yeah, there may be a lot of them, but the problem we have is that most of our puzzles are way too easy. Wink

Wow. That's cool. And if you've got more than 6 puzzles active in the area, you can sleep knowing that this wouldn't be true if you didn't exist.

Cool, nice catch! I guess this wouldn't have been possible if the winter series didn't contain as many puzzles as it does. Smile

I'm sensing a trip in your future. That would add another layer of difficulty, solving a puzzle in another language.

Shocked

Czech it out: http://coord.info/map?ll=50.093098,14.450565&z=13

They have at least as many multis as traditionals, and none of the few puzzles I've looked at have geocheckers.

Wow, that's a lot of puzzles [in Prague]! I looked at a few of them, and well over half seemed to have an English option, and a couple were exclusively in English. It might actually be possible to do a puzzle run there.
