It must not be about the numbers...

My brother's cache just got its second find since 2003. It's a little hard to get to, so I'd expect the next smiley to come along in about 2012 or thereabouts... But the view is nice!



Weirdly, both logs only have one find to their credit. But they each emailed my brother with the secret pass phrase in the cache, so we're pretty confident they really did visit.

ETA - you'll have to pan out quite a bit on the Google Map to get a sense for where this thing is...

Could the 2 finders be scientists up in Alaska who maybe are very into/curious navigation/GPS but don't have time for geocaching due to their extensive research and did this one just for the curiousity (or just to say they were there?), or even stumbled upon the cache by accident and completed the task when they found out about it on the web. Some caches in Antarctica (yes Antarctica) are like that. And the last finder of NYC's famous "Spooky Island Cache" on North Brother Island was someone like that who was there for something Audubon related, knew nothing of caching, found the box by accident and was curious and signed on to gc.com to log this find, never (at least so far) to cache again.

You may be on to something. Both finders were on Adak doing UXO work - disposing of unexploded ordinance left over from WWII. I don't think they found the cache by accident - I think it was more like what you were describing with the Antarctican scientists who have the equipment, and a lot of time to kill. Although I can't totally rule out accidental discovery either - if you're looking for WWII munitions, old WWII bunkers are logical places to be poking around.

Although "poking around" probably isn't the safest way to do that job, but you know what I mean :)

Okay, I'll bite--

What does he do for a living and why is/was HE there?
