Kirbydox (Donna) has completed the 52 Week Challenge cache after the breakfast event today. Congrats to Donna on completing this challenge as I am sure it was very difficult.

Congrats.  That's something I know I can never accomplish. 

 

Don't stop.  I've heard he's coming out with a 2 year challenge soon.

Gee. Now you tell me.  :angry:  I was marking off my events on a nice paper calendar. Event overload is right.  :blink:  

 

Thanks, everyone. It's nice to check this challenge off my list this year! It was a tough one.

This one is so far off my radar, it may as well be a FTF on the moon! Congrats Donna. Seriously amazing. You must be qualified as the most social cacher I know! :D

Congratulations, Donna. That's awesome!

 

I had to chuckle when I read the note from the Dutch guy on the challenge cache page. I almost had to post a note in reply to let him know that we have some pretty hardcore cachers over this way and that it was just a matter of time. I didn't know Donna was that close, but in hindsight it doesn't surprise me. She's been at nearly every event that I've attended in recent months.

I couldn't help myself....I had to send the Dutch guy a friendly geo-mail message to let him know that the challenge had been FTF'ed. It's just too incredible a feat to not tell him.  :)

Congratulations, Donna.  The gauntlet was really thrown down on this challenge and it is amazing to me that someone was able to do it.  I probably would have had the same reaction as the original poster on the cache that said, "You really expect anyone to log your cache?".   I have learned though never to underestimate our Houston area cachers.

I agree..... although challenges can be fun, nowadays it almost seems to revolve around challenges.

 

Kudo's to Donna though... 52 event-weeks in a row is by no means an easy accomplishment!

Agreed.  When I first saw that challenge, I knew it was going to be quite a task.  Congratulations, Donna! 


There is no adventure without risk.
