Subject Last Episode – Finding Archived Geocaches

Hi everyone,
I was listening to your last podcast this morning and heard about the question for archived caches. Thought I could give a little help with that.
On project-gc.com, it’s easy to display a map of all the caches of an area, including the archived and/or disabled ones.
Go to Tools / Map compare. Input your name, location, check “none found” and “one found”, and add the filter “Show disabled / archived”
Other filters are also available to narrow the search down if needed).
Then you get a mat of all the caches of that area, showing the archived ones with a red cross on the icon.
Below the map is also a complete list of the caches displayed.
Hope this answers the question.

Thanks for the great podcast and keep on podcasting!
Vincent aka Vinceo from Grenoble, France.

Hey guys (and Jessie), I was just listening to the most recent show. You talked about how to find archived caches. I did find one potential workaround. It’s not perfect but it does work.

If you use the map compare feature on project-gc you can select to show archived caches. I suggest limiting the area as it will pull up all caches. The good part is that it clearly shows archived ones marked out with a red X on the map with clickable links to the cache pages. Hope this helps and good show as usual.

Special thanks to BroncoCole and all the others that sent in their suggestions!

GCPC EPISODE 528 Show Notes

GCPC EPISODE 528 – Fun Facts, The History of Geocaching

Some of the topics we discussed tonight:
Geocaching was originally similar to the 160-year-old game letterboxing, which uses clues and references to landmarks embedded in stories.

Geocaching was conceived shortly after the removal of Selective Availability from the Global Positioning System on May 2, 2000, because the improved accuracy of the system allowed for a small container to be specifically placed and located.

The first documented placement of a GPS-located cache took place on May 3, 2000, by Dave Ulmer of Beavercreek, Oregon. The location was posted on the Usenet newsgroup sci.geo.satellite-nav as 45°17.460′N 122°24.800′W.

By May 6, 2000, it had been found twice and logged once (by Mike Teague of Vancouver, Washington). According to Dave Ulmer’s message, this cache was a black plastic bucket that was partially buried and contained software, videos, books, food, money, and a slingshot. A geocache and plaque called the Original Stash Tribute Plaque now sit at the site.

The activity was originally referred to as GPS stash hunt or gpsstashing. This was changed shortly after the original hide when it was suggested in the gpsstash eGroup that “stash” could have negative connotations and the term geocaching was adopted.

For more give the show a listen…

Hi,

Is there a way to map archived geocaches?

On the Geocaching.com site you can see caches mapped in a variety of settings: everything, your finds, your DNF’s with cache type filters.

But, how do you see what you have found in total including archived or disabled caches, and, more importantly, ALL previous caches in an area including archived or disabled ones?

I quite often read the description of a cache by a veteran who comments about one or more caches that used to be in a the same spot the current cache is replacing.

Thanks,
I LOVE the show usually binge-listening to the audio version.
Keep it up!! – Brian AKA “Slingworthy”
