2016 caching in review and your 2017 goals
« on: December 31, 2016, 05:25:09 pm »
How did your 2016 go caching-wise? Did you meet your goals? Anything you really wanted to achieve but missed out on?

What are your goals for 2017?

Geocaching really has taken a back seat for the last two years since starting a new job, but following on from Bear and Ragged's lead I though i'd analyse my finds for 2016:

111 caches found.

 1 x Letterbox
10 x Multi
14 x Earth
32 x Traditional
51 x Puzzle
 1 x Virtual
 2 x YOSM

Caches found this year:

Most favourite points:
Dorset Series Earthcache (Durdle Door) GC1G6EN (Earth) - 149 fav points

Oldest:
Highest in Conwy (Traditional) - placed 11 Jul 2002

New Counties:
Gwynedd


Despite the low amount of finds, this year has taken me to some very interesting locations, so for 2017 I hope that this continues, with maybe a few more finds and more caches on the 'wish list' visited.
