Hi OM

 

You want to find caches PLACED on a particular day of the year? If so, in the PLACED DATE section of a create Pocket Query page, select the third choice down for the Between / And dates. Enter the SAME date for BOTH. The date that you are interested in. Only caches hidden on that date will be returned.

 

If you only want to view them, do NOT check off a day of the week for the PQ to run, and only preview them. No PQ charged against your daily limit that way.

PQ will only show for the year.

eg if you want a cache for 18 August, you will have to search each year separately...

 

GSAK has a macro AnniversaryHides, which can search ignoring the year.

i was hoping there was a simpler way to do it with pq's. but guess not.

 

thanks

I run PQs for all caches with 65 miles. Upload into GSAK. (Okay. Only looked through the nearest 7000.) Arrange by date hidden. Needed 12/15. Yes. Had to look through 14 years. But that was simple enough. Found six in the 7000. Went for the nearest one. Qualified for "Find a cache hidden every day of the year." Didn't take that long. (No! It was not 2/29 that we needed!)
