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
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.
I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.
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
You can't have everything. Where would you put it?-Steven Wright
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?
