Stats a lot of caches!

It's time once again for some stats about geocaches.
  • I reviewed 3,053 new geocaches during the past year -- roughly from September 2008 through August 2009. All of these were in Iowa. That comes to an average of 8.36 caches reviewed per day.
  • Worldwide, 391,742 new geocaches were reviewed during the past year.
  • In the United States, 193,054 new geocaches were reviewed during the past year.
  • Iowa now has 7,949 active geocaches (including event caches but not including EarthCaches) listed on
  • Worldwide, there are now 912,967 active geocaches.
What's your guess for the exact date that we'll hit 1 million?
