-   The solution is very easy. When you send for your pocket query, just ask for caches with a terrain difficulty of 'less than or equal to' 1 and traditionals excluding micros. Bernie.

I'm typing my frustration out loud here...
 I'm trying to map out caches to do on our vacation to Mt. Rushmore/South Dakota/Devil's Tower  and it's a bit frustrating. It appears that the cache placers there aren't as well trained as they are here.  I've found several caches of a terrain of 1.5 - 2 with a "simple" description and I think ... "We should be able to do this" -- keeping in mind that our group consists of  have a 7 year old who is oh so tired of  micros; an impatient male  who thinks drive and sleep, drive and sleep is an IDEAL way to spend a vacation, and myself -- whose prescription orthotics were recently eaten by the dog..  ...Then..  30 logs in I read "Hot day to make this uphill 3 mile walk"  or  "first mile OK..  loose rocks,  boulders and rattlesnakes at the end made this one a bit more challenging than I would have thought."  
It would certainly be nice to have a note somewhere in the description that says, "Even, flat terrain on this 4 mile round trip hunt for a micro that has been stolen twice already."
Also -- I'm not seeing any familiar names on logs from Omaha to Mt. Rushmore..  or I'm totally missing them..  anyone cached Omaha?
