Canada Caching

Post by Hoojar » 30 April 13 12:02 pm

Does anybody know if any other website supplies the 'Cache Hidden Ranges' like this site does? I am trying to prepare a database for a trip to Canada soon. All help appreciated.

Thanks!

As you might have seen there is ALOT of caches there, surely it would be better scale down your PQ to along route or what I did pregenerate a whole bunch of GPX files for different areas then copy to GPS the previous day.

This would need some device to copy or edit your GPS files, I had a Android phone which I could copy my next days GPX file to my Dakota or with wifi create on the the fly.

I was hoping to 'easily' download all of the caches into a GSAK database, and then be able to transfer them to my unit as necessary.

Only 31,000 in British Columbia though http://www.geocaching.com/seek/nearest.aspx?state_id=64

That's less than a week's worth of pocket queries!

If you know where you are going to be, you can use GSAK's "Geocaching.com access/Get geocaches..." feature, centred on each of those places and out to 50km. Premium members are allowed 6,000 caches per day this way. Effectively instant PQs!
