If there isn't a cache where the road turns enter a waypoint.
    We did this on our trip to Texas and we made a lot of waypoints in the middle of the road, at every major bend. We then set the distance at 2 miles and got every cache within 2 miles on our route.
    Woah! This isn't sinking into this old head!

    Will you ne at the Kayak Kache event next weekend? Can you demonstrate this for us?

    I don't think we will make the event on the 20th. The annual Police picnic is the same day. But brad seems to have it under control. We will still be here for the event in Sept. I'm working on a GSAK file of I-95 that I'll be able to send you that will simplify everything.

    Wow. Thanks EGSG. I tried it and it worked for me. I never knew about this option. I will start using it more now that I know how to use it. I just wonder how many other things GSAK does that I don't know about yet.

    Yeah - I've been experimenting too, and I think I understand. Now if we could only do a pocket query along a route! LOL!

    Actually, when you open GSAK, if there's an update, there'll be a small notice in the upper left. That's how I stay up to date.

    And as a registered user, I got notification thatthere's a new (2006) version of Delorme's Street Atlas out. Why doesn't someone buy it and give us a review! LOL!
