Yesterday I ran a PQ (2 actually) on local Earthcaches. I went out 100 miles from my home coords in Kenosha. Both PQ's returned no finds. There are at least 3 I know of within 10 miles of home.

Anyone else have this problem?

I know when I run PQ's sometimes I don't have the right checkboxes checked and I have to do it all over. I just ran one and it came over just fine.

My mistake in the PQ is usually where it asks for the TYPE of cache and I choose Earthcaches BUT I forget to move the dot from ANY TYPE to SELECTED TYPE after choosing Earthcache.

I have done the same thing as Anne mentions.

If it works, 500 PQ request picks up caches as far south as KY, over to ON, and into SD.

I read your post and thought that would do it, but it still comes up with no results. I'm double checking, and this is what I have checked off.

Selected types
Earthcaches
Any Container
I Haven't found
I have found
My Home Coordinates
Within a radius of 100 miles

Go back and try this:

Choose ONLY "That is Active"

It might be confusing the PQ when choosing the "Have found" and "Haven't found". The PQ will automatically pull ALL ACTIVE Earthcaches that you have and have not done. I ONLY use those choices when I want to specifically filter out the ones I have done already.


Also.... when I ran it from my zip code, I also chose the "STATE". That wya it will pull Wisconsin only and not Illinois.

Hope that helps!!

Fu
