Thank you all. This seemed to work. Plus, it didn't cost me a cup of coffee or even a beer.


If RudeRat's suggestion worked then I believe you would owe him a cup of coffee or a beer (his choice).

Coffee or beer, coffee or beer, hmmmmmÖthatís a tough one.

If I bought a coffee or beer every time a geocacher helped me out (notwithstanding the GSAK questions), Minnesota geocachers would either be very very amped up all of the time or blathering drunks.

If you answered another question then maybe you could be an amped up blathering drunk?

Okay, I've got the hang of unzipping then dragging the GPX's into my Garmin- I can also easily delete the files when I get home. What I am learning now is that I have left over a bunch of child waypoints of parking coordinates, etc. leftover in my gps'r.

Is there a way I can batch delete these waypoints without deleting my favorite restaurants, fishing holes, and cable car stops?

I can't help you with old child waypoints, but if you run your PQ through GSAK, you'll get just one GPX file that has all the caches, as well as the child waypoints associated with those caches. Then, if you want to delete those caches as well as their children, just delete that one GPX file (I think I still have mine on the default, which is Geocaches.gpx). Hope that helps!

As usual, requested a Pocket Query to list caches (Found in the last 7 days)

Biked to GZ and could not make the find. Spent 20-30 minutes expanding area to 50 a foot radius and searching under each blade of grass! Am I going blind? Its been found within the last seven days!
Right? Well, I logged on to enter my DNF and read the last two logged Found It logs. Surprise!!!!

Found it Very Happy 05/11/2014
Found spot but it is gone

Found it Very Happy 05/11/2014
Found where it should be but looks like the container is either missing or removed.

Perhaps a new logging trend? Logging a "FOUND IT" for finding the cache "SPOT", or "WHERE IT SHOULD BE"?

Lesson learned. Very Happy Very Happy

Hmmmm.....someone should probably log a needs maintenance. If it's not in the obvious spot it's clearly gone. Would a "Needs Archived" be more appropriate in this situation?
