The Membership Advantage



To take full advantage of LonelyCache, it is important to become a member and be logged in. Membership in LonelyCache is based on membership in Geocaching.com. That is, a LonelyCache account is paired with a Geocaching.com account and shares the same account name.

There are advantages to being a member of LonelyCache and browsing it logged in. Several of which are:

  • One click navigation to your geocacher statistics page.
  • Your hides and finds are easily distinguished from other caches.
  • Your placement in leader boards is highlighted.
  • Links are provided to see your found/hid caches or your un-found caches for a region.
  • Links are provided to see your found and unfound caches for a geocacher.
  • Adds your Geocaching.com avatar to the LonelyCache header.1.
  • You can create your LonelyCache Most Wanted list1.
  • Your recent finds are automatically updated and included on LonelyCache.1, 2.
  • Times will be displayed using your time zone instead of the site default Eastern US time zone.3.
