So do a PQ for that instead.

I will  :)

As it's a shorter series I'll leave it until the morning, and let you know how I do  ;)

Wow! I did a PQ from the origin of #1. All caches in the series have been picked up, and some others in the area if we have any more time. Brilliant. This won't be my last PQ  :D ;D ;D

If you go on your GC.com homepage you should see a 'build pocket queries' option on the right hand side. Selecting that should take you to your pocket queries, where there will be 'Active pocket queries' and 'pocket queries ready for download' in the latter you should see your PQ if you click on it you should then be able to unzip it into a GPX file ready for copying and pasting into the GPX file of your GPS

Thank you, but When I click it takes me back to the original form and resubmitting it still does nothing. I have an option to "copy" to the right of the "name" column but this won't paste into my GPX folder of my GPS  :-\

Are you definitely in the 'pocket queries ready for download' tab? Sounds like you are in the 'Active pocket queries' tab

OK, on the active PQ page is the correct day checked (ie Monday) and does it say when it was last generated
