Show 85.0: A New Year!

Listen To The Show (53:24)

On our geocaching show today, Sonny flies solo while Sandy is in Massachusetts for a wedding. He takes a quick look back at some of the 2006 topics and previews some upcoming shows (including the exciting conclusion to the Travelin’ iTrax and FoxTail coin race challenge). There is also a phone update from Sandy on her snow caching adventures, and some audio from various listener milestones! Sonny also shares a fun photo tip for this time of the year.

Caches Along a Route Tutorial

The new “Caches Along a Routeâ€? feature available for premium members on Geocaching.com makes planning a geocaching trip much easier. There are previously uploaded routes in which you can search and run pocket queries or you can build your own route. The Caches Along a Route page at Geocaching.com has very good directions for both searching previous uploaded routes and for using Google Earth to create a route but I wanted to expand on it and show some screen shots. In this tutorial I will go step by step with how to build a route in Google Earth, upload the route and build a pocket query for the route.

There is a lot of information and screen shots for this tutorial so I decided to set it up on a page of its own. Here is the link to the tutorial.

Happy Caching,
