Feature request: Write Notes list for Earth caches

0 votes
93 views
How do you log earth caches? I log them with a write note, so that I get my logging in order (especially re trackable visits) (especially when it was found on a big geocaching trip), then later (possibly immediately, possibly much later) I send the answers in to the cache owner. The owner might reply immediately, or they may be on a caching trip and reply some days later, or they may have retired from the game and never reply. Once I get the reply I convert the Write Note to a Found It, and add any favourite point.

So sometimes, I have trouble finding the earth cache I write noted on in order to sit down and do the answers, or to  realise that the owner is not responding and log the find anyway. Sometimes it is a few months before I realise there is an outstanding earth cache to finish.
Does this sound familiar?

Would a PGC page highlighting Write Notes on Earth caches be useful to find those old earth caches still in a half-completed state? Perhaps with an embedded code word so that PGC does not flag write notes logged for other reasons?

On your profile page on Geocaching.com, you can go to Geocaches, theyn select "Write Note".  This will show all the caches that you have written a note.  While it does not filter for only Earth Caches, does make it easy to find caches with notes.  Can also go directly to the written note display at this link:
