Does anyone know which cache in MN has the longest time for FTF? Mine may not be close yet, but it would be pretty cool to break it:

Not sure how one would even begin to figure that out... Our personal record for longest MN FTF (as a finder, not hider) is 8 days (from publication). We have another that is 9 days from the placed date, but only 6 from publication.

Come to think of it, I think there is at least one MN challenge cache that had over a year between publication and find (it was a KB one I believe, but I can't remember which one...)

In recent times, it could be Peter's Earthcache in the middle of nowhere within the BWCAW.

Nope.

Keeping a couple caches quiet that have been unfound longer than that in case I decide to make a FTF run on or about the anniversary of their hidings. Not sure if they are the longest, however.

Vultures and Accipters have been disabled for quite a while. No one could find them, including I. Guessing whoever placed them messed up marking the coordinates.

Argh, I figured my secret wouldn't be kept long. There is a couple near the bottom of the list which is out of place, actually, one is doubled up on.

Damn, never noticed this one my route PQ. I visit family in S.D. often and pass by it. Butcher and I found one on the same tank on a trip awhile back. This must be the new version. Next trip I'll check it out.
