I was looking for archived caches and I remembered that they use to show up in the "hide and Seek" using the postal code. I haven't used it for a while and now it lists caches outside of my postal code and none in the city. Can you check yours and see what you get please. Is there another way to find archived caches?

As far as zip codes go, I think the site must be centering on the center of the service area for that zip code. Both Adams and Friendship show up with the closest cache being well out of town. I use coords nearer to my home for the search function when I want to see near caches. If you want to search near the center of Ripon, pick a cache right in town to use for your "find caches near".
As for archived caches, the only ways that I have ever been able to see them is if I know cachers who had found them (then I search their profile "found" listings for the archived caches), or I know who had placed the archived caches (then I search their profile "hidden" listings for the archived caches). If you know the GC code for any cache listing, you can type that in and it will show up, even if it is archived. I have never seen any archived caches show up in a search by using a postal code.
