While the thought of there being two million active geocaches across the globe is pretty phenomenal, it sure seems like they've been stuck at or around 1,997,000 for a while now. Every time I check the main geocaching.com page, the total count hasn't made a lot of movement. I guess with so many caches around the world now, there are probably almost as many being archived as there are being hidden.
Regardless, now's your chance to get your 15 minutes of fame. I understand gc.com will post the Cacher's name and GC number of the two-millionth cache when it is hidden. So get out there and hide a cache this weekend to get your shot at making geocaching history. And if that's not enough incentive for you, then check out the 2-millionth cache contest going on at notaboutthenumbers.
