After giving it some thought I came up with some real goals (no staying ahead of BigChiefS4 really isn't a goal of mine). Here they are:

1. Have fun finding geocaches.

2. Find more caches with other cachers than I find alone.

3. Black out my D/T grid.

4. Find Alvin's Phone Line for find #3,000.

5. Find 100 caches a month for 12 consecutive months (on month #7 right now) to qualify for Minnstar's challenge.

6. Make it to the top 100 cachers in Minnesota (by number of finds).

7. Let BigChiefS4 catch up to me so that we can find #4,000 together.

Well, you've jinxed yourself now!


Well, I'm up by about 1400 right now, so he has quite a bit of work to do to catch up


We'll have to do another numbers run one of these days!



Sounds like a good idea. I'm sure once he hears about this that he will be even more motivated to catch up.

1/18/2012 tonkaMN 2,375 - BigChiefS4 1,002 = differential 1,372


He's gaining on me

2/21/2012 tonkaMN 2,548 - BigChiefS4 1,307 = differential 1,241


Slowly, but surely he's catching me:

6/20/2012 tonkaMN 3,352 - BigChiefS4 2,497 = differential 855

I can help you with goal #6.

You only need to get to the rank of 101 to be official. I'm still being listed on the Minnesota list but officially, I don't live there any more.

Sounds cool! You're probably around 6th now. Here's the leaderboard (but it's not a complete list of all geocachers):

Thx. I knew I wasn't 2nd but never could get a straight answer. I knew I was top tier in the category.

There's a chance I will be within a couple of finds of the lead by end of 2012. My summer routes take me past 24 or more cams, not all of which will be doable.


I am currently 6th. My caching tour for 2012 starts in two weeks. By this time July I'll be officially 2nd in the world for sure and with any luck, I'll be first (need 20 to be first).

Our goal for 2012 is to get my son, Troutonthebrain, up to 1000 finds. Our plan is to get him to 1000, which in turn will put me at about 1500. Each time we find 500 caches will then put us at a 1000 cache milestone. When I find my 2000th cache though I want to have hidden my 200th hide like I did for my 1000th (100th hide was hidden right before.)

All 2011 goals accomplished. 2012 goals are..

- Complete WI county challenge.
- Add 5 more state's OLDEST caches to my completed list.
- Add at least 7 more states cached in.
- Take care of that embarrasing 1 find in Manitoba and find several others.
- Take the world record in webcam finds, 2nd place is just not acceptable.
- Hold the 5th annual canoe-in geocaching event.



- Complete WI county challenge.

Stalled but sitting at about 33% of counties remaining.

- Add 5 more state's OLDEST caches to my completed list.

Managed to get 3 new states and also made good on the controversial Indiana and Ohio.

- Add at least 7 more states cached in.

Attained 5. Seven is a goal that wasn't possible this year.

- Take care of that embarrasing 1 find in Manitoba and find several others.

Managed to find two more Manitoba caches so now sitting at 3.

- Take the world record in webcam finds, 6th place is just not acceptable.

Made it to fourth or third place this summer. I see the record holder also managed to score several more webcams in the last few months Sad

- Hold the 5th annual canoe-in geocaching event.

Next weekend.

I saw a post on FB about 2011 geocaching goals, and I was curious if anyone has any goals for 2012? Mine is to fill up my D/T grid!


DONE! Finished my grid yesterday with a trip Rochester way.
Gold Rush-Clam Island, 3.5/5 GC28NQ9
Turtle Tunnel-4/4.5 GC2ZFK5
Very FUN for Salsman!-5/3.5 GC388X5

I had a lot of help along the way. Emails, text while we were deep in the tunnel, and lots of hand holding! It was an awesome, if very long, tiring day.

1. Finish the 365 day streak challenge

2. Raise my average D/T to 2.0 for both (I am now close and there is a challenge for this in Sioux Falls, SD)


I finished the year of caching, but at the same time I was trying to raise my D/T averages. I was able to complete both. Today, my wife and I cached around Chanhassen and Chaska and got the caches I needed to get the averages up to 2. Very Happy
