The Cache Checkers

? about finding more than one cache in same area

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

What is the quickest way to discover how many caches are in one area?

 

I was recently at a cache in a local park and was told there are three others and several across the street. I don't know if they are placed by the same person. I entered the zip code, but it would take me awhile to look through them all.

 

Anyone know any shortcuts?

On the hide-n-seek a cache page http://www.geocaching.com/seek - there are more options including search by address and search by coordinate.

 

Also on any listing page - you can click the link that says "all nearby caches".

Just pull up the map on the bottom of the cache page and you can zoom out a little bit to see any near by caches. I use the maps to find groups of caches close together.

Personally, I like the "Search with Google Maps" option on this same page. For me it's the quickest way to get a visual perspective on your surrounds.

I do this then hit the 'map it' button at the top of the list & check from there.
