We struggle with this every time we plan a trip. Generally we look at an overview of the intended route using the map of GC.com. Then we choose strategic areas to center our PQs on. Look up the zip codes and set up the PQ with <100 caches each. You can get 35 a week 5 per day.

Since our GPs will hold 1000 cache coords we just get all that we can and proceed.
Depending on out time we will cache only close to the route or in clusters along the route. We were recently given MS Streets and Trips and are anxious to try this and see if it is better. If you want to discuss this feel free to call or visit us. Check the clue of our cache Hockeyology for phone number.
BTW I have seen a discussion in the GC.com forum that some state organizations are putting together info about caches along major routes in their states. That info is found here.
Good luck, poppy
