Caches along a route

Recommended Posts

Hi Caching folks. Has anyone discovered a work-around to creating "cache's along a route"? I'm so frustrated! I also contacted Groundspeak and their response had nothing to do with my issue.

 

Open Google Maps and log in (need Google account) to My Maps

Create New Map

Select Draw line, then in drop down select add driving route driving route

Draw your route and save it. Give it a name.

Select the three vertical dots at the top and choose "Export to KML" and then "Entire Map". Click "Download".

You will get a .kml/.kmz file in your download folder

If you get a .kmz you can rename it .zip and extract all just like any .zip folder

Go to Geocaching.com and upload the .kml and use it as your route / create pocket query.

I have done this many times and have no issues with it.

Can you tell me how to get to My Maps in my Google account? I'm stuck at the first step :)

I figured it out. It works pretty well :)
