Baltic Cruise – Pocket Query Links

Cachers often wish to load their GPS and/or have Pocket Queries (“PQs”) saved in their SmartPhone before they head out on trip.

Some folks just want a few caches loaded – so they have an idea of what is around them, to “light up the map” with a new Souvenir.

Others want to have a view of EVERYTHING around them — conceivably “just in case” they find themselves somewhere unexpectedly.

Below you will find “PQ Creation Links” – each section has a description and individual links that will allow YOU to create your own PQs.

There are PQs for each country, covering the ENTIRE area around where we are staying – if there are few caches in the country – a single PQ includes them all.

There are MANY caches in some cities – and therefore multiple PQs are required to cover the entire area.

If you aren’t sure what to do with PQs – chances are… you’ll be fine without them.

Let’s be honest — we aren’t going to be near 99% of these caches – you’re on a cruise, not heading out for a cache-by-cache-powertrail-day!

So.. here you go! Version 1.0 of the PQ links for the July Baltic Cruise!

ALL CACHES PQs (aka For The Hardcore “GIVE ME MORE THAN I NEED MY GPS HOLDS MILLIONS OF CACHES” Cacher)

If you use this section, you have a serious data addiction. I applaud you 🙂

Some people like to have ALL the caches in their GPS – even if they are Multis, Mysteries/Puzzles and Wherigos!

The following PQs are zoned around the areas of the pre-cruise and cruise tours that we are planning to visit.

Yes, there are FAR MORE caches here than anyone will need – however, this solves the problem (i.e. reduces complaints…) when someone doesn’t have a cache in their GPS that someone else sees on their SmartPhone!
