Your Geo-Birthday

Postby Handyman-N-Fam » Fri 2011-04-08, 20:13:48

On our way home from the latest shenanigans in West Unity, the conversation with TeamMina turned to geo-birthdays. We were curious if we had ever found a cache that was hidden on the day that you joined geocaching.com. (the date is on your public profile page)

It turns out that we have. We joined Geocaching on Friday, January 30, 2009. We found a cache in West Virginia, GC1M9Q0, hidden on January 30, 2009.

What about everyone else, have you found a cache hidden on your geo-birthday?

Yes we did, and it's funny too, as it was after the weekend when Mina learned from her sister that water was fun.
We found the cache, and unexpectedly Mina jumped into the river.
Her first geo-water experience. Wish we had a pic of it.

All we knew to do was go to our profile list, click on traditionals found (since there's so many more), then the date placed along the top line.
Then scrolled back some 80 pages!

If you use gsak just do a query of your finds, then sort by date hidden and you can find out that way.

You can do the same thing with cache stats. Sort by month placed, and then go through that months caches for the corect date.
