I plan the following..

- Knock off two more of the four remaining states I need.
- Acquire at least 5 to 7 more webcams (while daughter swims at finals in CA).
- Find my 100th Wherigo.
- Hide my 100th Wherigo.
- Camping, camping, and more camping.

Ok...I'll throw a few goals out that I've been thinking about:

- Complete Jasmer challenge (one left)
- Complete 20th fizzy (currently at 14)
- Attend a few more events

I will FINISH the 366 challenge - been working on the last 7 blank spots for 4 years now! And only ONE is left!

Then, probably around 2021, I will actually find the challenge cache for it.

My 2017 Geocaching goals:
1. Continue to increase the percentage of my total finds which are made up of non-traditional cache types, ending the year over 40% lifetime non-traditional. I'm pretty close to this, so if I can concentrate here I should make this.
2. Increase my find count for the year over my 2016 find count.
3. Add 1 or two new states to my map.
4. Add 6 or more new counties to my map.
5. Hide 5+ new caches, and retire some of my oldest caches.
6. Hit the century mark for Letter Box hides and Earthcaches, and the double century mark for multis.
7. Get at least three Wherigo caches completed.
8. Find more Challenge caches that I enjoy doing that will actually challenge me, not just occur because I happen to be racking up finds.
9. Have fun.

#9 is really the most important

One goal is to See if we can actually place the challenge cache that we requested a checker for back in June. Since we got the feedback that it is a legal challenge we just need to wait for the checker to be created. 6 months later we are still waiting.....
