We were doing a bit of cache maintenance this weekend and while checking throught the paper logs  noticed once again that many cachers either forget to log their finds online or never log their finds online. Perhaps they just like the treasure hunting and aren't fond of the internet stuff. We were wondering what percentage of finders did this.



With the amount of traffic at some caches it seems that many more may find the cache and don't write in the physical logbook either, just out for the hunt. Perhaps hiders with caches in view of their workplace or home have some insight into the ratio, but what percentage of cachers do you think find without logging online?

I have noticed on a few of my hides there is no logged visits, but the one that is close to my work has 100% log rate, (tusk & hammer) .

Of the caching teams we've introduced to caching only one find caches but don't log online. They started off logging online but decided they didn't want the hassle of remembering to log online so they just log in the books. They were briefly called terraraidrinkers or something like that.

My Bison Castle Cache has 124 current online Found log entries. Looking at the old logbook, I'd estimate about 10% of the finders didn't log thier finds on the internet. I'd say another 5-10% used this cache as one of thier first finds and logged only a few more if any other caches. MHz
