    Yep you forgot to check and highlight the state of Maine.
    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    No - I never do for Maine queries! I just input the ZIP code.

    Must be something else...

    Default A hint for PQs...

    Here's a helpful hint when creating PQs and you don't want to forfiet one of your 5 allowed for a day when you screw something up.

    Don't check off any day of the week when you submit the PQ. Just create it, and once it's created, preview the results. Check the number of caches it produces and see if they appear to be in the correct area.

    If it worked, then all you have to do is go back and edit the PQ and select the day(s) you want to get the PQ.

    If it did not work, edit the PQ the same way until it does. because gc.com did not send you a PQ, it will not count toward your daily quota.

    This is a good way to get PQs that are under the 500 cache limit. Keep adjusting the PQ and previewing the results until you have just under 500, then select a day to produce it. if you select the current day, the PQ will be send within minutes after selecting the day usually.

    I believe the following is the best way, and I use it. It will have no duplicates, so you get your money's worth.

    Using the method of test-firing PQs in my previous post in this thread, search for all Maine caches as you normally would, and don't select any origin. Then, play with the "Placed during" numbers until you get close to 500 caches. For example, I get 2 PQs for my unfound Maine caches. My first PQ has caches placed from Jan 1, 2000 to Feb 28th 2006, and my second PQ has caches between March 1st, 2006 and December 31st, 2009.
