What are your high-level goals?

Many geocachers will, sooner or later, do things like filling their date grid and filling the D/T grid. However, as time goes by there are more and more cachers who have been in the hobby for ten or even fifteen years who will have done that a long time ago and are looking for more difficult goals.

Personally, I've been working on filling other calendars. I already have a complete calendar with only traditionals and a complete calendar with only mysteries. I'm slowly working on doing the same with multis, but there are too few around here so it goes slowly. I know others are working on the D/T grid using only one cache type.

When you've done the "normal" goals, what are you aiming at that isn't one of the standard targets?

I don't know if we have any high-level goals. Of course we wan't to fulfill some challenges in Finland, but I don't keep those as high-level goals. Maybe our high-level goal as part of geocaching community is to keep this hobby alive and as private level to keep geocaching.

1,000 caches in a day. Setting up the team now. :)

For all of us "just having fun" should be the highest goal!

In 2012 I set a target for a longest streak of 30 and in 2013
of 111 days. I reached both, but I'll never repeat something
similar, because waking up in the morning and knowing I
have to find a cache somehow is killing all fun.

Now I just aim targets without any time limit like filling
calendar or D/T and it's completely secondary when it
will be finished.

Caching with a pressure to succeed is no fun!

By the way: Meanwhile I regret, I didn't know about PGC
at that time when I stopped the 111-in-a-row. I wished
my decision was >122 :-(

I just made a very long streak including a winter then have some reluctance just going outside to grap a cache. So sad this situation after having some pressure to 'accomplish a goal' the same when i promised to hide few caches and come to the last day before an event. So keep it a fun moment! Do not target or await anything than having pleasure to find or hide or meet! Have fun next year!

My high level goals for 2018 is 300 caches with climbing gear. 500 caches with treeattributes, and at least two trips abroad for caching old ones. Finally get the 10th round of the grid.

I want to continue my event series, I would like to do another series (idea already) and set up a earthcache letterbox. Of course, I want to continue the next culling.
