Subject Last Episode – Finding Archived Geocaches
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!

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!
