I am Geocaching Thankful for:

The General thankfuls:
All the places I have been while geocaching
All the people I have met while geocaching

For health, enough money for the petrol, and good enough weather to cache!
Attention cache owners! This new Dashboard tool is for you
How big is the universe? Why are we here? What would geocaching be like without cache owners?
These are questions that we do not know the answers to. What we know for sure is, that geocaching would not be here without the universe, you, and dedicated geocachers who create and hide geocaches. This is why we have added several features to the updated Geocaching.com Dashboard to make maintaining a geocache easier and owning one more delightful.
GCPC Mailbag…Send your geocaching email to:
You’ve done lots of shows on trip planning, but I haven’t heard one done on route planning (unless of course I missed it
I know where I want to go. I have all the stops (at least primary ones) identified. Now, I need to find the most efficient route possible, that gets me from a starting point to a destination point. Oh yeah, and it has to be free, because as we have all recently learned, Geocaching is Free, right?
Google maps does a good job, but you’re limited to 10 stops. I was currently trying to plan for an attempt at the Geotour-GT77, “Butler County Donut Trail”. It has 15 stops, plus starting at my home address and ending there too, so I need 17 stops.
Google searches revealed several tools for planning a route, but they all want an address! Now I have to figure out how to convert coordinates into a street address. I did find a couple that took coordinates, but they were also limited to the number of stops on the route.
What’s a cacher todo? Any hints, tips, applications, or other tools would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the show, and hopefully some suggestions!
