    Default Route planning - Distance between caches?

    Is there any way to work out the distance between caches,
    I am hopefully going to the Gathering in the Glens event (GC24M5Z) next weekend 13th-15th of August and would like to be able to plan my caching to maximise the number I can acheive over the weekend.

    GSAK.
    There's an App -oops- macro for that!
    CacheRoute.gsk
    "Creates an optimized driving route between Caches"

    Or.

    Load a GPX or LOC file, and get a Google map, and work it out for yourself.

    Sometimes the human eye is better than a computer! :lol:

    I tried a similar program lastnight but it only seems to give you the distance between the two points as the crow flies.
    will try both ideas you gave me and see what I can get from them =0)
    Then again I might just dig out the old OS map of the area and use a measuing thingy (thats the technical term) =0P
