Would have missed this except for the serial thread bumper. Some thanks are due, I suppose.
Anyway. We're a little closer to 2020 than when this thread started, but still a couple years away. We should certainly have 10,000 caches by then, even if we slow down, as we average about 800 caches a year. So we should hit 10,000 caches either by, or in, 2020.
It looks like we will be returning to Europe soon, at least for a couple years, so I hope we can get more countries found. Not necessarily all 53 on the project-gc map -- I don't know how interested I am in visiting Svalbard, at least, not for what it would cost, but I certainly want to get to Monaco and San Marino by then, two that we missed last time we were in Europe.
Visiting Africa would be nice. Getting to one of the Mediterranean countries should be easy enough, but perhaps also Namibia or South Africa?
