"My Locations" list

Recommended Posts

I would like to see a list of locations added that I can use as "home" points. Currently, you can enter a single point as your "home" location and view all the caches within X miles of that location. You can also enter any lat/long combination to search from, but I would like to save those for future searches. For example, I like caching during my lunch hour so it would be nice to have my office as a saved location that I could search from.

 

Perhaps there is a way to do this now, but I don't see it. A possibility would be to create my office as a virtual cache and then search for nearby caches, but I don't think that is a good idea.

You could always bookmark the search results.

 

If you lived at the confluence of N 43° W 086°, your url for the search would look like this:

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/nearest_cache.asp?origin_lat=43&origin_long=-86

and it would give you this result.

 

Don't forget to convert to decimal format first. Your one hidden cache is at N 42° 55.022 W 085° 39.686, which translates to 42.91703, -85.66143, so to search for caches in close proximity to your cache on a frequent basis, bookmark this result.

That's a good idea. I will do that. The problem is that I'm typically away from my machine when I want to do the search, so I won't have the bookmark available.

So, if you're not concerned about other people knowing the coords you're interested in, add the links to your profile. (click on the underlined space under "other hobbies.")

That will do it! Thanks! Seems obvious now. Sorry to bother you all with this.

I use backflip.com to save these links. That way I can pull them up from any pc.
