Now that I've been enlightened to pocket queries, a whole new world has opened up. I'm curious as to what people have loaded into their GPS on an every day basis, just when driving around.

Last week I was fortunate enough to take four days to just drive. I elected to stay (mostly) in Minnesota. Here is what I had loaded up, and have loaded up today...

*Every unfound multi in Minnesota- I like multi's, but this was mostly to used to locate State Park Wildflower caches. Now I learn some are traditionals, so I may need to replace this with Sparkyfry's bookmark list.

*My list of solved puzzles/challenges completed. A few hundred caches worldwide....just in case I'm in the neighborhood. This also includes virtuals in areas I may travel.

*Unfound caches within 52 miles from my home coordinates. This does not include puzzles, as they would be included in the previous list.

*The 110 (or so) oldest unfound caches in Minnesota. This has been my favorite list to fulfill. Many logbooks well over 10 years old. Love them. Search these guys out to see why and see if you feel the same!

Oregon doesn't let me do this, but in the iPod I have Minnesota State Parks, unfound within 53 miles, and a list of "caches of interest." Things I've found that would be fun to do if we get the chance.

Trekkin' has all our hides in his 60CSx. Otherwise, we make a new PQ for each outing.

My guess, so he can hide new ones in the area and know it isn't where a cache is already.

Don't you have a smart phone? I find it easier to just pull up the geocaching app and see how far away caches are.

Yes, I do. But you try finding every cache in Miesville Ravine and then tell me you wouldn't prepare ahead Wink

With a flip phone does it really matter if there is a data network available? Laughing
