In october, I celebrated my 10 years of geocaching by finding the most favored cache in France: Eiffel Power in Paris.
I met a lot of geocachers near the Eiffel Tower

This year I accomplished quite a few things including reaching find number 1000 and completing my DT matrix at the same time! I also hid my first few caches.

For me, it was once more travelling around and seeing new countries, as well as places I may not have found otherwise, starting with Gibraltar and Morocco in January and the doing a trip to the British Islands including the Isle of Man and Dublin (visiting GC43). I was able to complete my Germany map (6 states had been missing) and did some nice hiking trips. Well, and approaching 10000 finds - may have to set up a special event for that...

For all of you, enjoy the last days of 2018 and have a good start into the new year!

Until now my most southern GeoCache was one in Barcelona / Spain.

This year I managed to push my limits further south to a GeoCache on Sicily / Italy.

I completed my caching calendar this year, and reached the first level of the black belt in badgegen.
answered Dec 17, 2018 by Optimist on the run (Expert) (18,130 points)
I also went for the black belt this year, and managed it one week before the end of the year. Just to discover it was one level more...

A good question - thanks for asking it! We had quite a few successes this year:

(i) We reached gold black belt on BadgeGen without having completed the D/T grid.

(ii) We at last completed our first D/T grid with a 2/5 church micro cache accessed by kayak!

(iii) We visited three new countries - Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro

(iv) We reached 4000 caches earlier in the year and are only 100+ from reaching 5000.

A good caching year - a few more to do this year, but looking forward to next year!

Although I had the lowest find number this year (compared to the years before), I managed to accomplish a couple of goals:

reach 2500 finds (July)
complete the D/T grid (May)
get at least one new county souvenir (Portugal in June, Canada in September)
push the westernmost find way westwards to British Columbia, Canada (September)
fill the "Little Jasmer" (everything since 12/2000), only 4 2000s missing (September)

I tried to get a lot of PGC-Points as a normal user and it is possible to reach diamond level.

There are plenty possibilities in Project GC and I learn nearly every day something new.

It would be nice to have a detailed manual for Project-GC.

Happy caching

Ich habe versucht als normaler Nutzer möglichst viele PGC-Punkte zu sammeln und es ist möglich das Diamant-Abzeichen zu erreichen.

Project-GC bietet sehr viele Möglichkeiten und ich finde fast täglich etwas neues heraus.

Es wäre toll, wenn es ein ausführliches Handbuch für Project-GC geben würde.

Viel Freude beim Cachen

Although, I did not very much caching Groundspeak was able to get me out for each souvenir hunt this year. I also found my 1000nd cache and my most eastern and southern one on the Maledives. So I think not bad at all.

From the "Goals 2018" thread (green = suc6, red = fail)

As a startze I mostly make my own goals. By day, month, year. Haven't done the grid because there are not enough different D/T ratings nearby. But yes, I still want to fill it (probably next year).

I only have one goal for next year that's considered High level. I want to find 3000 caches in 2018.
Or maybe also: log 200 caches/day on MTB.

Other small goals are
- Trying to visit the 3 (mega/giga) events that interest me.
- Log caches in Belgium (home), Holland, Germany, France, Luxemburg, Italy and maybe other countries.
- Start on treecaches.
- Make a small mystery series
- And host at least 2 meet 'n greets

In other words, 2018 was a great caching year and it keeps getting better!
Met new peepz and got to know some other cachers a lot better. Visited some amazing places and completed the matrix twice, etc etc
But the best is that I 've met an amazing girlfriend who loves caching!

Many firsts for me in 2018.  I created a geoart and built my first lab caches for the Texas Challenge event.  I gave a 101 class for earthcaches at the CacheExpo in Weatherford, TX.  My swing band played at a geocaching event which was really fun.
