Geocaches placing by month and day

Have you ever got the feeling that Geocaching is more popular during spring and summer time than during the winter?

Well, I wanted to make sure that this is the case, and made this chart out of the more than 700,000 active geocaches in the states.

As you can see, during January and February it’s a little cold for people to geocache, so they stay at home, just to get out during spring time and hide tons of geocaches.

On June when it gets warmer, geocachers have their short break, just to get out more during the long vacation.

The worst Geocaching month is December. Apparently some people prefer spending time in home with their family on Christmas than running freezing when it’s snowing outside. Go figure…

And what about the day?

As you can see the first of each month is standing out, and the 31st of each month is trailing behind (as there are only seven 31st per year).

Finally, what’s the date with the most Geocaches hides?

If you guessed 1/1, then you guessed right. There are more than 3500 hides on this day.

Number 2 is July 4th, and number 3 is September 5th.

Where is December 25th? It’s very low with only ~1000 hidden geocaches.

Last place is taken by February 29th which comes only once in 4 years, and has only 356 hidden caches.

So long for now. I hope you enjoyed this post.
