Woah, we’re over half way there.
So it’s time to take a look and yup, just like Tommy it would seem I’m *woah* livin’ on a prayer.
A new addition to the top of the list was the unscheduled mid-life crisis. Credit where it’s due, I’ve completely nailed it!
*Takes a bow*
I’ve chosen the design for my first tattoo, the Ferrari is on order and has anyone seen where I’ve put my toyboy…
In all seriousness though, here’s how I’m getting on so far;
1.Finish the Norfolk Coast path
2.Get the Geocache on Ben Nevis
Last time I was up there I missed it due to time constraints and the cold. This fact drives me nuts. GCG6XD I’m coming for you! *But not in a hurry.
Yikes. Still yikes, but I have looked at it from Cym Glas Spur, does that count?
Yep – post to follow
5.Find a webcam cache
Found one last weekend, it was broken. 😣 The quest continues.
6.A mountain walk in the dark
Last time I did this, I had that Wow! Stars! moment but to be honest I wasn’t really on this planet, this time I’d like to enjoy it. Maybe in the Autumn.
7.Find the five oldest caches in the Region
Found the 2nd (now archived) and 4th in the region. On target.
9.A hill Walk in the snow
Not much snow this year. Global warming folks, not big, not clever.
10.Five Bucket list geocaches
11.Start my training.
Logging commenced, course to be booked imminently. Hmm bet that’s got you wondering…
12.Complete my geocaching DT grid
Only 6 to go now, but getting tougher. Is there anybody out there brave enough to take me out on a boat?
Oh yes! Post to follow
14.Sleep somewhere unusual
Does Essex count?
16.Lord Hereford’s Knob
I’ve left it alone so far. 😉
17. Find Ten Geocaches with 40 or more favourite points
Super easy for a caching snob like myself. 😉
Safe to say I’d forgotten about that. Abi…..
19. Search for fossils on the Jurassic Coast
Uh-huh. Post to follow
*Still The hill that got away.
21.Leave the country!
Well so far I’ve reported my passport missing…🤷🏻♀️
22.Bag Twenty trigs
Possibly three or four so far. Must try harder.
23.Bag Five Wainwrights
erm 1. But it was a very big one.
24. Annual walking challenge
Claiming a girls weekend away for this one. The challenge involved to get away was pretty epic. Blood and vomit filled Post to follow.
25.Find geocaches in five new counties
Devon and Leicestershire so far.
26.Visit a Bothy
Not so sure about this one now. I’d still like to but after some ridiculous hot deals website listing them as a free holiday getaway and rising reports of Bothy misuse, I need to consider where I stand on this ethically.
27. Blog more
Kinda. I no longer want to burn the WordPress servers so I’m taking that as a positive.
28. Try Kayaking
Anyone brave enough to take me?
29. Spot an Otter in the wild.
Tried. Failed. Big fat DNF. Not giving up yet.
30. Log an Earth Cache
Three in fact. I even gave two favourites. Impressed Steve?The weirdly wonderful Woolpacks on Kinder Scout
31. Gaping Gill Winch
Because caving didn’t quite put me off being underground.
32. Solve and find 40 Puzzle caches
34 solved and found so far. Several solved and waiting to be found, I’ve got this.
33. Go on a ghost walk
In Whitby. It was weird. But we had gin after so…
34. A sunset hill walk.
Technically the final eve of my 39th year, but I’m taking it.
35. Improve my Navigation skills.
36. Spot a red squirrel in the wild.
Yes. The cheeky red floofs certainly weren’t shy. In fact double success as I had a chance spot in the Lake District recently too. Totally squealed. 😁
37. Place a cache
I’ve only been awarded an adventure lab. Work in progress at the moment but looking to build it in the next few weeks. Geeky excitement.
38. See the sunrise on Snowdon.
39. Learn some scrambling techniques.
Let someone talk me out of a course last year, silly me. Luckily the opportunity arose again this year. Tales of an awesome weekend to be told soon.
40. Publish a post with actual photos of me. Possibly the most terrifying challenge of all!
See 39. Yikes. Action badass shots aplenty.
