TB-run has been shut down permanently now. I've made a note of the TB numbers and will have to manually work it out in December  :D

What a shame, and a pain for you Griff Groff having to try and work out all the mileages of the TB's.  :-\

That's a real shame its shut down :( From reading through posts, is it due to changes on GC.com on what mileage shows through ???

Just been through the logs on my TB.

Some thing odd was going on between cachers 'Les Pandas' and 'CRISFIL17', like on the 15th Jun, my TB visited a UK and a French cache, not impossible but no log of it changing hands and this happened more than once  ???

09/May/2018    25.73miles    Charlie_Towlson took it to
15/May/2018    36.5miles       Les Pandas grabbed it & took it to
13/Jun/2018    535.66miles?   CRISFIL17 took it to - no record of it changing hands!?
15/Jun/2018    529.87miles?   Les Pandas took it to  - no record of it changing hands!?
15/Jun/2018    532.67miles?   CRISFIL17 took it to  - no record of it changing hands!?
23/Jun/2018    146.37miles?   Les Pandas took it to  - no record of it changing hands!?
24/Jun/2018    12.93miles?   CRISFIL17 grabbed it & took it to
19/Aug/2018    6,272.32miles   Reemus5 placed it
14/Nov/2018    5,546.13miles   SLOlocals placed it

Lots and lots and lots of "took it to" dipping logs. So, up to admin what miles count?

Ideally we shouldnít count dipping, but Iím leaning towards including it this year as it makes it quicker/easier to work out.

But if we follow our published rules, we should only count the first log of each cacher (i.e. the first drop).

What do you think?

As it was in rules about dipping, that's how I came up with the log extracts from my TB, only the first dip, all the rest (in my case 336 records!!!!!) ignored.

For my TB, on the page it shows a mileage of: 16,073miles
But my list ignoring dipping, that drops to: 13,638miles

I'll recheck when we are close to the finish 'line' :)
