Geocaching, IYC-2011

The whole periodic table of elements, with each element released as a geocache (IYC2011 - <element>)

In November 2009 I took the initiative to create several geocaches with chemical element theme. Since the IYC2011-theme was on the table I chose to publish all the chemical elements. Since January 1st, 2010 I have started to publish the "IYC2011 - <element>" caches in preparation for the IYC2011. Within this year (hopefully) all 112 named chemical elements will be published on They will either be traditional-, multi- or mystery caches.

Since I live in Bergen, Norway, most of these will be hidden/published there, but some scattered across Norway.

Does someone else have similar ideas, or thought about IYC2011-caches during 2011?
