Gram and I are looking at an international trip late this fall. As part of the preliminary planning we are looking at caches. One particular challenge has caught our eye, but I'm having trouble assembling the needed data.

We are asked to list a find in each of many concentric rings of distance, starting at our home base, in 10 kilometer jumps. The catagories are 10-20 km, 20-30 km, 30-40 km, etc. all the way out to about 600 km.

There's got to be an easier way to mine this data than manually scrolling through lotsa geocaching.com pages! Hopefully some of you well versed in techy solutions will be able to offer us a step-by-step tutorial. I've toured some of the various knowledge bases and forum archives and have not found much.

Thanks a lot. cYa, Grandpa Jim

It doesn't sound like they picked ranges that match your profile, so you will need to use something like GSAK to filter your list of finds by distance.

If you have gsak, there is a macro for "the well traveled cacher" that may be helpful.

On a side note...enjoy your travels!

What is the GC number of the challenge cache?

would it help to change your distance preference on your GC account to Metric?

That is exactly what I was thinking and it is simple enough to do. Depending on your GPS type, you should be able to change it on there also. I was recently in Canada and changed my GPS to show Km instead of miles.
