Sorry Bon Echo, didn't mean to tick you off.  Laughing  On a serious decline, maybe? Geocaching has been on the decline since 2012 I believe, just not as pronounced.

Traditional Plants on AQ (the bar graph by year about halfway down the page is telling).

We do often have people find our caches that never log on the website. In this case though, I think they're all Atlas Quest letterboxers, despite that hobby being practically dead these days. Geokrety was a cheap plastic coin in a plastic pouch similar to the ones real Geocoins come in.

There was no GeoKrety tag in the cache and many more than the 3 people who logged online have signed the paper logbook. Just an FYI.

Out doing maintenance on our non-OCNA cache at GCC, so thought I'd grab this while here. Of course, it was a spur of the moment find, so I didn't have our stamp on us. Well, since B wasn't here with me, we will just have to come back together with our stamp... and that way B can find it too. TFTF! We hope you are well, SF7!!  -E

Wife working a 12 hour shift on a Sunday the Bills have a bye. I'm like "Hello, 115 mile round trip Opencaching run". Finding the trailhead was difficult. I did not put in their coords, I just sort of looked for it, and found it. Once I got there and followed the instructions, it wasn't too hard, although the trail is hard to follow in the fall with the fallen leaves. I left a geokrety here! Sad that there are more AtlasQuest finders than Opencaching Geocachers. I thought we at least had them beat. Laughing EDIT: I had trouble dropping a GeoKrety in here, but I finally got it. It is a little gold plastic coin from Germany.

Headed south of the border again this weekend (well, actually a lot more east and just a bit south) but this time it was adults only, no kids (first time in 8 years that we've been able to say that). We traveled to the Finger Lakes area to enjoy a romantic anniversary weekend - by romantic, I mean stopping to find caches, garage sales, thrift shops, driving secondary highways, stuff like that.

This was our first cache stop on the trip, and although it was still morning it had already become quite hot and humid. So the dark and damp forest would have been the nice relief except for the mosquitoes - they were thick and thirsty. We mad our way to the proper post, proceeded to the wrong log, then backtracked a bit and made the find. the cache is still in great shape, and nice stamp too. I have an account on AtlasQuest and have a few finds there, but I'll only be logging this one on OCNA since I don't have a personal stamp yet (it's in the works) and so I only signed the logbook.

In the end, we found 6 OCNA caches (and dnf'd two), also visited the oldest geocache in the state and picked up two other gc.com caches plus a few qualifiers for some TerraCaching locationless caches. A good weekend all around. Thanks Sabrefan7 for supplying 5 of the 6 OCNA caches that we found this weekend.

I'll admit that despite my own proclamation that OC>US was dead and soon to be buried I do peruse the site once in a while to view the 10 or 12 new caches published nationwide in the last six months.   Thats just how I stumbled upon this unfound cache which had been sitting unnoticed for some time in the woods of Batavia despit being published on this site and cross=listed on another.  I have to say there is nothing sadder than the tears od a clown an unfound cache in my book so to set things right I met my Letterboxing buddy, GreatBigSaebre and headed off to Batavia after leaving work today.  My goal was obviously to find this cache and let the owner know his efforts to place the cache were noticed by at least one other human being besides the unappreciated and relatively unknown depsite often tooting his own the horn site administrator who allowed this cache to be cross listed.  Anyway enough about the shortcomings of others and onto the cache.    I followed the instructions and found the cache in short order, Thanks for placing it.
