These are my new year's goals for geocaching:

 

1) Work on finding the caches near my house.  Specifically, I would like to see the first page of unfound caches be further than 3 miles from home.  Right now, we have ten pages of unfound caches within 3 miles.  Slackers!  Many of those in my area are puzzles, so I started actually solving some in September.  I haven't gone looking for a lot of them, but I have loaded the final coords on the GPS.  Solving more each week.

 

2) Catch up to my brother and cookcachers.  There was a summer we were all neck and neck in cache finds, but then they got way ahead of me.  We haven't cached that much this year compared to previous years, but I want to change that this year.  More caching!

 

3) Clear out the parks in the Houston area.   I have a list of ones I want to work on this year, and dates I plan to go to them - I am going to host events at them when I do, I think, so we can have a chance to work on that in a group.  I really enjoy the friendships I made through geocaching, and events are one way to build on those. 

 

4) Bring back the Golden Ammo can to SouthEast Texas by leading our team to a victory this year!  I think we can do this!  I know we have the best team - now we need to bring that team out with a strategy that capitalizes on our strengths.

 

5) Go back to Utah and claim a find on Potters Pond, the grandfather cache that Jason held us back from due to safety precautions.  More grandfather caches and western road trip adventures.

Looks like I'm gonna have to start caching again! :laugh:

 

My goal for the year was to finish my 366 day matrix, which I did on Dec. 26th!

 

Goals for 2014 - 5000 finds, hide some around Spring, attend the TC again this year, work on D/T matrix.- not very ambitious, but I am a bit of a slacker...

I don't know if they were goals at the start of 2013, but my accomplishments were:

1500+ finds in the year, my most ever
Attended the Block Party and got 11 cache types in a day
Also found 5 old caches in the Pacific NW that filled in holes in my Jasmer grid.
Logged 83 benchmarks and got FTF on cachestacker's Benchmarks Types Challenge
Cleared out all of the kayak caches around Baytown (still have some CLAPS to go)

...and the year ain't over yet!

My goals for 2014 are to clear out more of my "perimeter" -- I still have 49 unfound caches within 10 miles of my home coordinates
Make a dent in the GBP caches while the weather is cool.
Maybe not in 2014 but I really want to get the last cache needed for the Jasmer Challenge.

Okay.  Here are a few of my goals for 2014:

1.  Complete the Double Fizzy Challenge

2.  Find more benchmarks

3.  Find more Kayak caches.  We have the North part of CLAPS to do, then Cedar Bayou, and the Highlands, plus the Woodlands.

4.  Try to get the 3 remaining states that we haven't cached ... Hawaii, California, and Oregon.

2014 Caching Goals:

 

To be more active in the Geocaching community by attending a Geocaching event at least once every other month.

 

To reduce my date grid zeros by half by caching on at least 60 new calendar dates.

 

To get within 200 of that elusive 1,000 found by increasing my "Found Its" from 681 to 800 or more.  (I've been at this entirely too long not to have a comma in my total found at this point.)

 

To meet as many new cachers and get re-aquainted with as many "old-timers" as possible!

In addition to what Mr. Muddy Buddy listed, I'd like for us to reach the platinum level (80 caches) for the Texas State Park Geocache Challenge.   We are currently at 72, so with a little travelling, it should be pretty doable to get 8 more.  We've really enjoyed visiting many different state parks this year.

I wonder how much longer the Texas State Parks Geocache Challenge will go on?  It IS the 2013 challenge after all...

 

I'm about halfway done filling in my 2nd passport, so I'm a bit behind Muddy Buddies. :laugh:

Goal

 

Continue the State Parks Adventure:  I am on my 4th Passport

Go to Geowoodstock

Go to Block Party, even if only for the day. (Somehow my ex always ends up with the kids on Block Party weekend..not messing it up this year)

Assist in presenting a Fantastic MEGA Geocoin Event.

Try to make it to 12,000 by the end of the 2014...which will be a miracle.

Grab atleast 2 more states... I know one state will be a convention I will be attending in the fall...that is if the boss lets me cache while working.  Probably only virtuals....

Get my kids to LIKE caching a little more, just above *really hate*, to 'kinda hate'

1. Host more CITO/events on this side of town.
2. 85 caches a month = 1020 per year.
3. Teach more geocaching 101 classes (Develop solid teaching plan)
4. Host more mash-ups.
5. Make more fun videos.
6. Put a dent in the Beaumont area caches
7. Put a dent in the North/NE side of Houston caches.
8. Archive a bunch of my caches and put out new ones.
9. Attend more events
10. Actually learn GSAK (Just saw the BFF's videos and am going to study them).

OK, after reaching my goal for 2013 (1,800 total finds), here's my Resolution for 2014:

 

1. Try and reach 2,500 total finds (or more)

2. Host at least 1 more event

3. Come up with more ingenious ways to hide my caches

4. Try to mash-up more

5. Have Fun, Help out & keep enjoying the wonderful HGCS!

I have done the highlands caches, but if you head up to the Woodlands, lmk!! ;-)

 

I still need the South part of the CLAPS.
