The site went belly-up shortly after I discovered it, but it has been reincarnated as the Lonely Cache Project (or LCP for short, again by some cachers in Arizona). You can read more about the point system at that site (link). I checked in (and still check sometimes even though I no longer live in the regions served by the LCP) on the site frequently, sometimes using it to find cool lonely cache destinations, and sometimes just to see who else is finding these caches. I was hooked. But as I mentioned, the LCP only monitors for the mountain west, and now I live in Tennessee. Guess I'll have to find some other way to look for the lonely ones around here.
I did have a little foresight though and created a handful of TBs to hunt Lonely Caches for me. I give you, The Lonely TB Project or LTBP. Now I can live vicariously, if not very infrequently, through there journeys. Below is a table of the Lonely Cache Hunters I put out and some interesting stats. If they move a bit more, I may even throw together a chart. One interesting stat is the accumulated LCPs. I count the number of CPs a cache has at the time the bug is left (excluding the geocacher(s) that just found it). IN this way you can see which TB gets to the loneliest caches. For the purposes of this chart, I only count a cache as a lonely one if it has at least 25 CPs at the time of visit.
