    Hmmm, I wonder.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

I just feel a little sorry for the folks in the southern part of the state who have to travel so far to hit it.
    Don't feel TOO sorry for the southern contingent. Just scroll your map over to NH to see what's in their backyard. The rails-to-trails in NH are easy to find, caching icons mark them well. (And some nice walks too)

    I would just send the whole GSAK file, but I also have the zip files that ran before the outage. So If you need files I have them.

    Sharing of PQs is against gc.com's terms of service...

    Under the circumstances I think a little sharing would be fine.

    Sharing? I would think selling or re-distributing for profit would be bad but sharing is a little harsh. I share the information with my daughters, 5 and 8, and would hate to see them carted off to Levensworth.

    Well, you'll have to discuss that with someone better at law than me. But from your statement, I'm saying the difference is that you're sharing the information - reading a cache description and/or coordinates. That's not quite the same as sending a PQ file to another individual or posting the cache information from your PQ file onto your geocaching web site, listing the data as if it was your own.

    Good news Dave, as long as I don't sell the information to my kids and I tell them that it came from "Geocaching.com", we are safe from violating any geocaching laws. Although I was dismayed to learn that if we get lost searching for a cache that is in their .gpx file they (geocaching.com) are safe from any litigation that we may consider taking against them. Stupid rules!!!
