Now you can type in your zip code, check the box that says, “Exclude hidden/found items from results”, click the “seek” button, and presto; you’ve got a list of all the nearest geocaches still waiting for you to find.
You can add even more precession by entering your home coordinates instead of your zip code by selecting the coordinates option in the drop down menu.
At this point you’re probably thinking, wow, this is great, but I don’t want to have to type in my entire latitude and longitude every time I want to run this search. Well, you don’t have to. If you’ve paid your $30 Groundspeak membership fee, then you can create a pocket query (more about this in future posts) with even more advanced filtering options, and even save the query. After you set up the query, run it to see what the results look like, and then bookmark it! Better yet, drag the browser icon from the URL address bar down to your browser’s link tool bar, and you’ll always have instant access to an updated list of your closest, un-found geocaches.
