Not to be confused with the OLDEST CACHES thread.

I love finding old caches, the ones with four digit GC numbers (GCxxxx). I hadn't realized until today that I personally own three 4 digit caches that are still active, including the first cache I ever hid.

We know KB is the true king and has many old caches. But do any of you active cachers have any active 4-digit caches? I know you're out there.

I have 19 4-character listings active right now (3 of which are adopted from DLHCacher), the oldest of which is my first hide, GCGK1C.

We have six, all of which were adopted from the Lil' Otter. Our first hidden crept into the realm of five digits. Hidden in early '07.

From what I heard last weekend, it's probably not a PnG. Wink

That's what happens when you hide in the middle of the woods in the middle of nowhere.

That doesn't hurt either.

I originally drove within about 800' of the site, but now it's apparently about a half mile hike. I haven't seen the cache container myself in a few years - every report on it is positive so I haven't seen the need to revisit it.

The best I could tell while playing with GSAK is that KB owns 216 listings that aren't archived, the first being GC1269 (7/21/01), which he has labeled 001.

I just noticed we're seeing published caches with codes of GC3Xxxx. Soon we'll be at GC4xxxx!

Thanks for keeping those old ones active!

9 of my 19 published caches have 4 digits. Five are still active.

I have 17 with 4 digits and 5 of them are still active. One (GC3367) was adopted from Silent Bob.
