You know, this is how I like to cache. Although every once in a while, I'll use a PQ. I also like to load a few from a single cacher, for example I've done this with Hollora and EMSDanel. Next on my list is Mapachi, LT and Kayaking Loon. Uh.....any advice on LT's caches :rolleyes::D
Copy-to_clip for copying lists of caches to the forums, IRC, or HTML for posting to Web pages. It is a simple enough macro that I was competent to be bug-free. I'm not competent enough to think my other macros are worth posting. Some may be, I know a few aren't. I think I have posted a few in these forums, and I have shared the macro to make lists of caches near locations like waterfalls with benandtina, and I may submit that once I have fully refined it.
Too bad locationless weren't still around, someone could place a make a macro, log it as a find cache.... :rolleyes:
I discovered that Groundspeak dropped the kml format as I was getting my cache along a path routes ready for Geowoodstock! Had to do under 500 mile paths and then stitch them together in a text editor :(
I'm amazed how many complaints are heard from folks when referring to something that's generally offered for Free. You see it all the time w/IM or e-mail programs. And we see it w/geocaching I'm sure.
Ever done the research to see how many caches are offered to non-members. This site/forum's resources alone are greatly taxed by folks that don't help support it financially.
Google's kml queries were offered free. If someone was plotting a route using 200 waypoints, they would query Google’s servers 200x200 = 40,000 times. Like all the e-mails and forum posts on this site. It all adds up quickly and causes the need for more equipment/resources. It's not surprising that many of us GC.com members are noticing and complaining about the speed and accessibility these days. It all costs money.........from somewhere.
Even w/all the compliments and comments about all the work hide_from_the_kids did on the BK discount cards....to this day there have only been 6 purchased!! 100% of the purchase money goes to the site!? That's unheard of.......and w/20% return each use...you're return is fast and in no time you're actually Saving Money while supporting the site.
Human nature....gotta love it. We're interesting creatures......aren't we!?
For my long trips, I often make my entire route first using Google Maps adjusting for the caches I want to do, then when I have decided on my final route I make 500 mile sections to create the PQ with. I can load the 500+ mile route I create with Google Maps into Google Earth as well. That's where I liked the Google Earth KML; I could load my entire route and then see what caches were near that route.
