    And Michal, to confirm, you are or are not using dates paramaters? All joking aside, this looks pretty easy.

    This will return all caches in Maine, including temporary disabled. If you are looking for custom set of unfound or what ever PQs just for you for given criteria, I can have it evolve just for you

    No, I never did. Because of the disadvantages which comes with it. I was looking for a robust scalable low maintenance solution and this was the best I found. I understand you may have different priorities and this solution may not be the best for you. I also use this for building stats on this page http://mgs.cano.sk/ It is important for me it will work without touching it for many years

    Each method has its slight disadvantages. The PQ's with center points has a lot of overlap and produces many duplicate caches as well. The date method while it produces no duplication requires a bit of update now and then, but with the PQ BY DATE Macro in GSAK that is minimized.

    Either works just fine. Me, I used the by date method quite successfully. At one time I had all of Maine found but for 1300 caches. That is far gone now. Think of it, the whole state of my unfound caches in three PQ's. Those were the days!
    I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!

    I know, for my other project, where I'm trying to cover whole world I use time based combined with another criteria based PQs :P

    Is that a worldwide distribution of caches?
    (If so, I'm taking my next vacation in Greenland, looks like it's covered in them...)

    But seriously, are the white areas caches? Pretty cool if so.

    Yes the bright white color are caches, the gray white in Greenland and Antarctica is just snow However there are caches in Greenland and I was thinking of going there for little caching, but I couldn't find a flight

    Thanks, everyone. I think I'm going with the date method. It seems like it'll be a bit of work keeping the queries updated (like, when I decide to do Stud Mill) but it was mostly the overlap that I was concerned about. I was trying using a point as a center and trying to put queries as close together as possible, but it was taking a bit of time. I was able to put together ten queries using the time method in a matter of minutes.

    Cano, if you ever find out about flights to Greenland, let me know. It's not going to happen any time soon (maybe not even in the next five years), but I'd love to go where few people have gone to find a cache.

    Put my name in the search on GSAK and then remove the ones you don't want. Then bring up a map and pick out some of the nearby ones that are great.

    That might be a good place for an "along the route" but I don't know about the legs for that.

    The date option is a good one. I only redo my pq's when they drop below the 425 level which means you have to find 500 or so before you need to redo the pq's

    Correct me if I am wrong but it appears today needs to be the cut for the the 10th pq that used to be from 8/13-12/31 and a new one needs to be set for 10/29 to 12/31?
