    Excellent list! I’m surprised we haven’t knocked out more of them… time to get to work on that!

      Technically 10.JAC0B’s MOVING Cache #3 is a moving cache and not really an Indiana cache although it is currently in our state, but no need to split hairs! haha! I love the list and thank you for taking the time to put it together!

    Well I have four of them so far. Would make a good challenge to find them all.

  3. Brian D. Stahly says:

      While I do need to update the list (some things have changed)- this is the top 25 caches in Indiana. Freddy’s Nightmare as of today is #34 with 23 favorite points. Please feel free to search for caches in Indiana and then sort by favorite points to insure that you have the most up to date list of Indiana’s best.

    • Mitch P says:

      I just made a bookmark – and Freddie’s Nightmare snuck in at #26 as it is tied with #25. I want to come do that one myself some day!

  5. Bill W says:

    Need a public bookmark list for these.

  6. Mitch P says:

    I just checked this list out as we are nearing a milestone and want a special cache. A lot has changed in the Top 25 since this list was created. I like the idea of a bookmark list – I think I’ll go create one. Outside of the top 9, however, there is a real logjam at every favorite point level.

    • Bruce says:

      Guess I know what I’m doing this weekend… Another item added to my to do list!

      • Mitch P says:

        I did create the bookmark – but unfortunately, the Favorite Points data is not included when you display a bookmark. You would be able to identify the ones on the list closest to you. But to sort on Favorite Points, you have to run a PQ and display it.
