17 Down – 33 to Go!

I know, this is probably obsessive-compulsive, but I had a whopping half hour to myself on business in Maryland and just had to check that Geocaching box…

State Map as of May 1, 09

I have a personal goal of caching every US state in the next few years.  This map marks my progress nicely.  I do like the cool color coded state maps you can get from Itsnotaboutthenumbers, but this one will do in a pinch.  I generated this one using LogicWeave’s Cache Stats.  INATN (short form) actually has my favorite statistic right there on the front page when you upload your PQ:

Approximate cache-to-cache distance: 67623.42 miles (108829.34 kilometres)

That’s just over 54 miles travelled per Geocache logged.  I knew I got around for work a bit but these numbers just blew me away!  I love looking at maps like these.  If you have a blog or profile with your map posted, drop a link to it in the comments for all to see, especially if you have a map looking better (more complete) than mine.  And if you have a nearly complete county map for your home state, drop a link to that, too!

I’m happy to live vicariously through the caching exploits of others.  😉
