Mine worked OK, but at first it said 19 of my caches had uncalculated counties.. I waited a little bit and then it figured most of them out. I had to do the last 3 manually because they were puzzle caches with posted coords in Lake Superior.

I was really thinking that with 1750+ finds in MN that I would have more counties done. It's not like I concentrate on metro only caches.

Guess I need to start doing some more elsewhere -- although I'm not at all interested in the Delorme caches.

Hey, does anyone know of a national version of a county map (i.e. a utility that shades in counties rather than states across the US?)

It doesn't seem fair to pick up one cache in a state and get the whole state filled in (although I did that for Illinois and Indiana this past week - it does make a nice looking map...)

The same place will do it. Instead of clicking on the state, click on "Full US Map" at the top of the state list.

I guess it depends on the goal you are using. If you are doing a state goal then it works, if you are doing a county by county cache then that's different.

I've found that it really takes a bundle of work to get yourself out to all those other counties. A bundle of work, and a bundle of driving. All that driving adds up to time not caching.

I have found caches in all 87 MN counties, but there were many times when I wished I'd just stayed in one place and found a dozen caches rather than driving 60 miles for one.

Wow - this is a great case of "be careful what you ask for" - so many counties - so few filled-in spaces!

You right camo-cacher, I'm going to stick with 'get the states' maps for now, much more satifying.

But thank for pointing me to this neat utility, very cool!

Tony,

At least you got to see areas of the state that many many others will not.
