# Silly question from a newbie about distances

Now, I've placed a cache and as I was driving home, pondering submitting it for approval, I suddenly realised I hadn't checked how far it was between my cache and another nearby.

I have the co-ordinates of both, obviously. So how can I check?

I could drive back and measure it, but I'd rather not!

here's one, but if you google there are a number that do the same thing.

Thanks -

sssss, yes I'd read that, hence my query.

uk89camaro, thanks - that's perfect.

Watch out for Multi's and Puzzle's in the area that you have to solve to find the final coordinates!

If you have your new one and all surrounding caches in GSAK, set your new one as the centerpoint and that will do it for all surrounding caches. Apart from puzzles and multis which the reviewer will check when you submit yours.

What's GSAK?

The cache in question is live, so all was fine.

Display both locations in Google Earth and use the measure distance tool, always works for me.

Simples as they say!

What's GSAK?

The Geocaching Swis Army Knife It allows you to maintain a database of caches on your PC, and can do all sorts of useful stuff. As you're a Premium member you could set up Pocket Queries and automatically import them into GSAK to load all the caches into your own PC.
