2016 Geocaching Resolutions

Possible Caches along the 14 missing degrees for my 360 degree challenge

Any 2016 geocaching resolutions? I want to finish my 2015 resolution by picking up the one day that I missed in 2015 on the "days with finds" grid. I also just discovered that I have only 14 degrees left of the 360 degree challenge. So for 2016, I want to pick up at least one cache in each of those missing degrees (closest per degree being anywhere from 11-40 miles ATCF). See the attached map of the possible caches I can find along my missing degrees. P.S. I am amazed that I have found a cache in every degree that is heading toward the lake. Those 1 degree cones are very thin when they are close to home, yet I have found at least one cache within the Toledo area in each of those degrees.

To get even closer to completing our Fizzy grid.
And if that means finding at LeAST one of the missing half-dozen or so combos, so be it. :)

Getting to 6000 in 2016. Shouldn't be hard, as I'm close. Or maybe the goal should be 7000! :D

caching more, but perhaps the logging of the finds sooner - yup, i'm gonna pick that goal - quit procrastinating on the logs' postings!!!...

I'd scratch off number 5. I've met the guy, real screwball. Good luck on the rest though!!

I'd honestly forgotten about these until I saw this topic.

1.Reach 7,000 finds
2. Place a small Geo-Art
3. Host a Geocaching event in at least 4 states
4. Build a Wherigo for Findlay
5. Complete Illinois/Indiana/Ohio County and DeLorme challenges

As of now,
1. About 1500 away (possible but tricky with my work schedule)
2. Early planning stages
3. 0/4
4. Not yet, but have ideas for a ton of caches for this year.
5. Longshot goal, hoping to finish either Illinois or Indiana at this point.

Good goals Andog. #4 & #5 should be easy. 250+ more finds by the end of the year makes #3 doable. Putting out 13 more hides is ambitious, but doable for #2 (and fun for the rest of us). About how many unfound caches do you have in Putnam County for #1?

How's everyone doing on their resolutions?

1. Dependent entirely on if I reach some power trails over the summer. Right now on track for 6500 or so finds (career).
2. Planning stages
3. 0/4.
4. Not on my radar yet.
5. Indiana is looking likely, Illinois significantly less so. No chance on Ohio.

Yippie! I completed my initial 2016 geo-resolution of completing the 360 degrees around my home and finding a cache on the one day that I missed on my calendar fill the previous year. Early in the year I added another goal to make a huge dent in the second round of the finds calendar fill. I had 97 days with 0 or 1 finds and I wanted to get that number to under 30. Well, today I got that number down to only 12 days. So that was a success. About a third of the way through the year I noticed that I had hidden at least on new geocache and had at least one FTF in each month. So I added additional goals to continue that for the rest of the year. Well, as of today, I completed those goals as well. Now to come up with my 2017 geo-resolutions...
