For those that didn't notice, gc.com is now offering pocket queries of your found caches (it's a one click deal to add it to your queue). You can run the query once every 7 days.

Apparently (I haven't tried it myself) it will return ALL of the caches that you've found, disabled or archived, and is not restricted by the 500 cache limit.

I'm a little confused by it personally as I don't see it being that high on anyone's wish list, but that's just me.

Did it. Came back short 25 of my cache total. But it was fun to plot them on the map all at once and see what it looked like.

Apparently nobody has ever hidden more than 500. I can't imagine that Jeremy would discriminate.

At first I was excited about it but then found out it just gives you only your logs on them. Every few weeks I like to see other cachers experience at some of my favorite caches I have visited. I thought I could cancel 3 of my PQ`s I have set up for found caches, its better than putting a cache on a watch list and receiving an e-mail everytime someone post something on a cache. I dont want all that e-mail. Oh well, good thing I didnt delete the PQ`s.
My results did have all my finds though.

C'mon KB - you own the caching world record for hides and everybody who's ever done a search (most caches, oldest caches, (in MN), newest, nearest to home coords or otherwise (etc) knows it. This is for people to see what THEY have accomplished - not built to show them your dominance Smile

who am I if I don't bask in another cacher's glorious accomplishments anyway?

Heh keep at it KB, gotta break that 1,000 barrier.

Sure now they come up with a pocket query for all found caches... I've already had my finds up to date in GSAK since I started the process 6 months ago, including fixing the tedious archived cache issue.
