Some Jerk seems to be popular today as his is also the closest unfound to my house at 1.1 km away (PGP Cache) but unlike certain dim reptiles, I *am* able to figure this puzzle out but just haven't bothered to yet...



The next closest is In Seine at 1.8 km away which we've attempted once and could not locate the first stage.  We simply haven't been back yet to try again.  For the longest time, it was my closest unfound cache until Some Jerk came along!



There are 4 caches under a km away which I've long ago found.

Well, I own 3 of the 5 caches within 1 kilometre of my house. The nearest being At the Blitzing Post, a staggering 10 metres (if that) from my back door.

The nearest cache owned by another is third on the list, and is the (in)famous Park Lane Pulley, about 700 metres away.

If I want a cache I haven't found yet, then Greetings from Belgium 2 (6th down) is where I'm headed -- a brisk 1,100 metre jaunt.

And lastly, my Dani number (unfound within 5k) is 43.

Dani number?  SWEET!



My Dani number (not found within 5km) is now 25 but 7 of those are disabled.  I have 1 cache left within 3km of my place but it's also disabled (Conquista Del Mundo - Ukraine).

Our 'Dani number' is 4 (under 5km right?).  One is disabled.



4 unfound out of 47 (that are not ours) within 5Km of our house.  Apparently we're not fans of burning alot of gas for caching.

Since the Dani number appears to be the ruler by which we are measured by I will bend to the collective will - my Dani number is 13 unfound out of 70 total.  This gives a Dani ratio of 0.19.  Using a ratio should help those individuals living in cache poor areas and provide more fair comparisons of cache coverage.

PostPosted: Nov 11, 2006 4:31 am    Post subject: Infinite Number of Caches! Reply with quote

I like where this is going. If I use the dani number for my “true” home coordinates and then apply the burchil ratio, I get zero caches found within five km out of a possible total of zero. Zero into anything is infinity therefore the burchil theorem proves I have an infinite number of caches within 5 km of my house to find. Gotta go! If you don’t hear from me in the next two months, send batteries.

Our Dani number is zero out of 15. Even at 10 km, we are zero out of 50.

My Dani number is 4 (under 5km) Lots of puzzle and multies. Guess I'll have spend some time to get these cleaned up.

My Dani number is 1 unfound out of 23 within 5 km.
Using burchil's ratio, that puts my unfound ratio at 1/23 = 0.04

Maybe I'll go out and find that one today ....... It involves climbing a tree limb that may or may not break, though...

Expanding to 10 km, there are 160 caches, 44 of which I have not found, making my ratio to 0.28.

If I count the disabled caches, my ratio is 25/80 = 0.3125



If I disregard the disabled caches and my own caches, my ratio is 18/71 = 0.2535
