Search for Adventures

Recommended Posts

I'm planning a trip  (Hopefully I will be able to take it) and for normal caches I can use PQ's and/or GSAK to find caches where I plan to travel.  However, I can't see any way to look for Adventures near a distant town.

 

Could I please ask the developers to a) include a search by location in the adventures app and b) develop some way to save those adventures which I would like to do and hide those I don't?

 

Ideally, (although I doubt this will happen) make adventures available via PQ's or make some way to include them in GSAK.  In any case, pleat let me explore adventures far from home

On the adventure lab app I just pan to the city I'll be traveling to and explorer for nearby lab caches.

That's OK if there's just one city.  I'm planning a trip to about 8 Major cities across Europe and the UK, so I pan around 8 times and then, having decided what adventures I plan to do, there's no way to save them.  There's no way to be notified of new ones and there's no way to be notified if one has been deleted/archived or whatever happens to adventures when they are no longer viable.

 

Yes, panning works and so does using a horse and buggy to get from Sydney to Melbourne - but neither are particularly efficient.

That trick might not work for the lab cache that are part of adventure that are spread over a large area. We have some province-wide adventures in my area and the stop in Halifax doesn't show.

Yeah I really don't understand why Groundspeak continue to include more and more players when there are huge flaws to be corrected first.

 

The only way I know of new adventures are by the Facebook group...

Apologies. I was trying to help.

Apologies if I came across as nasty.  I was just trying to show why panning didn't work for me.   No nastiness intended.

And the user's area can make a big difference. For me, there are so few Adventure labs in my area that I can pan for 45 miles and finally come across one!  

I absolutely wish we had the ability to save them ignore them put them on a list all of those features would be helpful.

It took forever for that link to load on my device, then holy moly! 

Why so many missing US labs? So bare in my country, and incredibly dense in Europe!! Fascinating.

Not much point me even dreaming about installing the app, particularly with the travel restrictions we have here now:
