Easy way to find archived 'caches in my area?


Followers 0

Recommended Posts

We started geocaching in '09 and have deployed several in the past few years. More experienced 'cachers have sometimes noted that our hides are in close proximity to geocaches which came and went before we began the game. In one instance, I've found an archived listing for a 'cache that was very near one of ours. I'm just curious: is there an easy way to find older, now archived geocaches in our area? This is just me being nosy/curious...no drama intended (nor solicited). I have no intention of logging anything to the archived pages.

I've used Project GC's 'Map Compare' feature to look for archived caches.

  • Profile name: yourself
  • Compare with:  leave it blank
  • Cache location:  make selections, although not necessary if you set a center-point using additional filters
  • Show:  select both 'one found' and 'none found'
  • Use the drop-down 'Add Filter' menu to select:  "Center/radius" (if no location selected in 'cache location' above)  &  "Show Disabled/Archived"  (be sure 'archived' is selected)
  • Click the "Filter" button to run the search
