COINTEST OVER: GeoResolutions

Recommended Posts

OK, the year is coming to a close, and it's time to start thinking of setting some goals to reach in the new year. I will award some Coin Prizes by random draw for all posts in this thread.

 

The Prize Coins are still undetermined.

 

The number of prizes is still undetermined(more than 5).

 

You may post as often as you like(but not twice in a row).

 

Entries end at Midnight on December 31(according to the time in my forum clock).

 

Any resolutions in this thread should relate to GeoCaching/GeoCoins.

 

Drawings will be sometime in January.

 

That's pretty simple. In keeping with the old "Mail Order" Disclaimer...Please allow 6-8 weeks for shipping. Just so that no one gets upset that their prize hasn't arrived quiclky enough. Thanks for playing, let's have some fun. Your resolutions can be serious or silly, but should be clean and fun.

 

My GeoResolution for 2009 is to reach a total find count of 1000 Geocaches!

I also resolve to find my 1000th, and being only about 85 away, I think that's more than reasonable. I'd also like to find at least one cache with 5 stars in terrain and one with 5 for difficulty (but not necessarily a 5/5).

Check out this cache for a description of how it works -- it's pretty cool! And I understand exactly what you mean about your resolution -- that's exactly what I'm trying to do too. : )

I resolve to up the number of Earth caches in Western Australia. Right now, I think there is one :)

 

Yahoo - I will have to return there! Was so disappointed by the number of Earthcaches -hardly any in all of OZ! Making it so hard to upgrade my Earthcaching status from Silver. (Geared for cacher who are able to drive to another state!)

I do hope you can achieve your goal.

 

Edit - to add my resolution, and to not break the rules of two posts in a row (at time of edit, there was not rule about edits - hee hee)

 

Simple resolution - to up my number of terrain 2.5 and above caches.

 

Harder resolution - put out some more challenging caches.

 

Happy New Year, to you all!

I resolve to be the geocacher with the most geocaches placed in my "state".

Wow that would be to easy for me as i am just a few away from hitting that mark and i just may go do it today HUMMMM

MY GeoResolution is to start logging my finds!!

Well... I have some geocaching things I want to do in the new year!!!

 

One of my goals is to finally meet an other geocacher!!!!!!

 

I haven't meet anyone yet! I may have seen some but I didn;t know what to tell them!

 

what I mean... I have seen some people near the cache and looked like they wanted something there! I was with my father but I didn't know what to tell them, becasue I was thinking that they may be muggles! Most probably (if they were geocachers) they were thinking the same thing for me too! :blink:

 

This year I was very close to meet an other greek geocacher, but unfortunatelly he never came in Rhodes! :)

 

I feel lonely here!

Ok! I would love for this year to place some caches, my first ones, here in rhodes, and why not, in Leros island!!! I know some great places, and I would love to show them to other friends too! Of course I was facing some problems with cordinates, but I believe I can handle it this new year!

I resolve to keep up with my logs and not get so far behind. Well maybe if I can at least log them within a week of when I find them would be good!! LOL

Thanks for the cointest WSR!

 

I resolve to the the "100 Cache Loop" around Allegheny State Park!

Wow, what to do what to do??? I know....I want to place 100 caches (won't be too hard on this one :) ) Find 1000 (now, since I've not cached in nearly forever, this might be tougher, but I'm only 35 away), find caches in a new state, climb another mountain for a cache, ride my motorcycle at least 500 miles (one way) while on a cache trip...all while riding or driving SAFELY and RESPONSIBLY!!

 

And probably one of the harder ones...

 

release (or help to) another 200 coins into the Todie's Wild Ride cointest!!

 

THANKS for another great cointest WSR and THANKS for giving me reason to aim high with my resolutions.

 

btw, this is not an entry into the cointest, I have won and been gifted sooo many coins through generous and caring souls this year, I want others to enjoy the fun!!

 

Lastly, this year was a very trying year, I hope to make next year a BETTER year and will try to work on my positive attitude!

I would love to go to an event!!! If I can not do that because there were only 2 events in Greece (I think) and they were before I was a geocacher....I will make an event!!!! :)

Okay, so my other resolution is like DJ's -- I want to build up a bunch of coins so that I can participate in the missions and run some cointests. I'm actually in the process of doing so, too, hopefully, thanks to Mike Atwell and MotoCycleBoi (skippity skippity).

 

Oh, and by the way, thank you VERY MUCH for the cointest! : )

My georesolution is to find caches in some states we haven't visited before. We are fortunate to have such a great diversity of terrain and environments in the US.

 

Happy Holidays and thanks for the cointest! :)

I resolve to hold at least 3 CITO events in my area and get as many local cachers on board with me! While discussing this with another local cacher, he stepped up to the plate quickly and decided his 50th placed or adopted cache would be a CITO event! CITO 2009 :):blink::)

I would like to hit 2,000 caches next year and stay in the top 100 cachers in my state.

 

I would also like to get off my butt and get some of the designs I have been sketching for geocoins in production.

I resolve to reach 500 caches found this next year. Also, to find at least 3 caches in each state on a trip to Florida this next spring. Thanks for the cointest.

I "resolve" to place a couple of the series or multi caches that are floating around in my brain.

 

I would also like to design a personal coin. Just not sure if I can swing it financially.

One big geocaching resolution I have is to get to an event in the US to meet some of you great people!! I have traded with so many people that it would be great to finally meet some in person. Maybe 2009 will be the year to finally do that. :):blink:

My Georesolution is not to forget to take a picture of every trackable I retrieve from or discover in a Cache!

Last time I moved a TB from one Cache to another during the same tour, I forgot to take a picture, and I was so sorry, because there was no picture at all on it's page!

Our resolution for the new Year'09 would be to not get so far behind on activating our coins as we receive them in the mail. We take alot of pride in our coins and activate every one of them and upload pictures to their pages and bring them to every event we attend, to share them with everyone. We also have a spread sheet of every coin we own, including our untrackable geocoins, total all pretty close to 1,500 coins :D

One of my geocaching resolutions for 2009 is to hit the magical 2000 cache finds by years end. This past year I was averaging about 100 per month. Now that the days are shorter and work is busier than ever I haven't even been hitting 50 per month...

Another New Years resolution came to our minds is that we have placed a bunch of Official Wisconsin Spirit Quest Cemetary Caches just like Indiana has, and we like to place more in the upcomming new Year. We have had alot of fun doing placing these caches and learned alot on the history we didnt even know in our own County we live in. It never seems to amaze us on how much we learn just being in the sport of geocaching. We would never give it up for the world. We have placed 37 Wisconsin Spirit Quest Cemetary Caches and hope to bring more out in the upcomming new Year.

Ask them politely if they have lost something.

Make a joke that a GPS might help them find it.... if they stare blankly, then you know it is a muggle and just laugh.

Otherwise

 

To find an event.

 

Good luck.

 

 

My Quick resolve, that will take most of 2009 to achieve.

 

Convince my life & caching partner that we really should go to the Mega Event being planned for Easter 2010 on the large island west of New Zealand.

 

AIr tickets, holiday applications at work, caching plans, accomodation, rental cars and snake education all required.

Cool idea...

 

My resolutions would be:

A.) Attend at least one CITO event

B.) Grow my wooden nickel collection to 100 tokens. I currently have about 60.
