Ey Up Me Duck Challenge.. [4:25]

Hi Mark,

So how many of the 12 Challenges did Oh Beep manage to achieve?
How many of the caching resolutions you made last January did you manage? Can you remember what they were?????
The ones below were ours:
  • To find 3000 caches this year – this was hard work and wouldn’t have been achievable without (and you won’t believe this!!) Moan-a-Lot’s help and the rest of Team Compass
  • To try and clear a 10km radius from house – we have done well but too many people putting new caches out!!!! Plus there are numerous puzzles I am still working my way through
  • To clear at least another 60 days from our date found calendar (currently at 242/366). – completed although we still need 2 days to complete every date. One date in Jan and then the elusive Feb 29th
  • To complete and find at least 10 Challenge caches – we have been completing Challenge caches on and off throughout the year – the ones we have mainly focused on though were the 3000 caches in a year and cache everyday for a full year
  • To complete DT grid. Still need: got it down to 4 from 11 to do: 1-4 / 2.5-4.5 / 4-4 / 5-4 – so this is going on our list for this coming year
  • To cache in at least 10 more English counties (currently 31/46) now on 44/46. Complete as only need Dorset & Isle of Wight now
  • Find some Little Quest Caches (currently 1/48) – to get us into double figures at least – now got 10/48. This is good to say we still only had 1 by the beginning of August
  • To find 20 more caches to help go towards completing the Jasmer Challenge (caches placed – months since geocaching began) – (140/176) :  Now got 161/188
  • To complete caches placed (days).
  • Find any caches in area with favourite points of over 25 – didn’t quite manage this. Out of 145 caches with favourites of 25 or over within a 10km radius from home we still need to find 17 of them (some are puzzles :( and a couple are disabled) BUT we have found 128 of them.
If you are continuing with challenges this year could listeners send in ideas and you and Sam could chose the one to do????
Happy New Year to you all – hope it’s a good one
Denise (and Ady)

From Scott Berks.. [19:20]

Team Box or Daddy Box

Why? Presents come in a box!

Scott note: For the record, Team Box (a real caching team in Chicago) is NOT a lesbian caching couple, We at the Chicago Geocaching Podcast checked, and were sorely disappointed.

Light em up

Light… as in XMAS lights! BOOM!
