      The upgrade and new version of the forum software did away with a separate username and display name. Some of you may be logging in with a username but your Display Name is different. So if you are one of these users and have trouble logging in use your email address you registered with or your Display Name. If you still have trouble use the Contact Us link at the bottom of the forum with your User or Display name and I will try and get you squared away. -Team Four Paw

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!

Congratulations!  That takes real determination.  I would guess the quest for the plate helped a bit - and you got them both.  Way to go!  :laugh:
