So far the best goal I've seen listed by anyone.. Cool


I also really like this one.....It's more about the journey than the count at the end of the journey!

As corny as it may sound, a goal is to NOT complete the 366 grid. So far I've been able to keep one day cache free. It may be hard to accomplish this goal in 2014, as I will be in a really cool place on said day.

Only other goal is to average one find/day.


I can report one of my 2014 has been achieved!

My goal is to be more involved in Geocaching for 2014. Joining Washington State Geocaching Association (WSGA) and MNGCA are the beginnings of that involvement.

While I'm still living in the PNW for the next year and a half or so:
-I plan on attending some of the bigger events, like the Groundspeak Block Party, and the Going APE! event.
-I'd like to visit the original stach before I move out of the area.
-I need to finish Spokane County Quadrangle Challenge

2014 goals:
1. Finish D/T grid
2. 1000th find
3. Maintain more unknowns than micros


We can report one of our goals has been attained.
10 more finds and we can cross another off the list.

@schmittfamily
I am curious to see how you do on the "more unknowns than micros" goal given that a vast majority of puzzle caches are micros. Good luck!

STILL didn't finish the 366 grid! 3 days left. I have an alarm set to go off on those days . . . I don't know what else I can do . . . .

My goal check..

Quote:
- Complete all Counties in Wisconsin. I am currently at 50/72.
- Finds in two additional Canadian provinces; Alberta and Saskatchewan. There is a slim chance I might pull this off in July.
- Continue my quest to find all of the oldest active geocaches in each state. Not likely to make progress this year.
- Continue my quest to be webcam cache leader. It's no longer likely to ever happen.
- Continue my quest to cache in all 50 states and DC. I only have 5 remaining. I am pretty sure no progress will be made in 2014.


- Two additional Wisconsin counties.
- Made it to Canada but not to new provinces.
- I did manage to find Oklahoma's oldest active geocache.
- I'll never become the leader anymore but I did manage to add 5 webcams to my count this year.
- I did not add to my states with cache finds list but I did manage to geocache in 18 different states and one Canadian province this year.

2015 isn't looking good for my 2014 goals either, except perhaps Wisconsin counties.

Ha ha, our goal was to drop our finds per day average to our lowest previous level back in 07. We were doing great until we went to Hoopla last weekend!

Some of these are carried over from 2013, since I missed completing so many of those goals:

Travel: Add 1+ new states and 15 or more new counties.

Increase my non-traditional finds. I'm currently at 67.8% Trads. I'd like to get that below 2/3rds of my finds. Specifically-attend at least 2 CITOs, Find 10+ virts, 15+ ECs, 15+ Multis, and 75+ Mysteries. Attend at least one event per month.

Challenges: Qualify for (and find) at least 20 good Challenge caches.

Publish: Get 10+ new caches out for others, including the ones I have written up but haven't placed yet. Take cachers to interesting locations, rather than street signs.

Documentation: Take and post more photos, write better logs, including my DNFs.

MNGCA: Be involved with the 2014 MnGCA geocoin design, if one is going to be produced nest year.


2014 has been a relatively disappointing year for me goal-wise so far, and I don't necessarily see a big change coming in the next two weeks.

New State-Yes, Nevada
15+ new counties-No, I think I'm at 8: 1 in WI, 1 in NV and 6 in TX

Non Trads- Yes, my Trad ratio is now 65.31%
CITO-No, 0
Virts- Yes, 18
Earth-No, only 8
Multi-Yes, 20
Mystery-Yes, 158
Event-Yes 23, including at least one each calendar month

Challenges-Sorta, qualified and did lots, but only 12-15 really stand out as memorable challenges that I truly tried for, as opposed to stumbling into eligibility for

Publish-No, only 3. Nothing in the woods.

Document-whether my documentation logs have improved is up to COs. I didn't add as many photos as I had wanted to.

MNGCA-Yes, involved with geocoin committee.

With the kids getting busier as they grow, I'm finding it harder to get out and grab caches on the spur, and have picked up most of the area between work and home-at least those I can do in office clothes.

Although my goals are not lofty, I managed to achieve them.

I have still not logged a find on my birthday. It's the only day on the calendar which is blank, and blank intentionally. I'm really not big on birthdays, but reminding myself that although geocaching is big in my life, there is so much more, is the rationale.

With today's outing, I managed 366 finds so far this year. Average a cache a day keeps the game fun for me.

Other notables, although they were not goals- 8 countries (6 new), only one new state. Maybe next year I can get more states off of my list. Will think about what to set for 2015 goals....
