Not the Daily Stuff

I’m trying to improve the blog so I’m messing about with it. I’d like to add more photos to each blog but it seems I can’t do it with this host. Anyway, bear with me.🥴

Now these are entirely Covid dependent.

1. We have another cruise booked to Iceland taking in the Shetlands in July. Hopefully we can strike lucky here. If Covid has eased by Christmas, we hope to visit Lithuania or another Eastern European state that we haven’t been to, for a Christmas Market.

2. I need a 4.5/5 cache to complete my grid for the second time. I have one in mind but I’ll need these Covid tiers to ease a bit.

3. It’s the same for my English Counties list, if the tiers ease, I’ll find an excuse to visit Greater Manchester.

4. I want to drive my present D/T of 1.85/1.79 up a bit. My new idea is to only go for a cache if it is has at least a 2 in the D/T. However, I will always go for a series cache even if it’s the dreaded 1.5/1.5.

Let’s start by taking stock of last year resolutions. Certainly the pandemic took a large bite into the possibility of completing these. This is a recap of my predictions last time.

1. I plan to visit the following new Geocaching countries next year - Portugal, Morocco, Gibraltar, Albania, Iceland and hopefully Lithuania.

I managed to visit Portugal and Spain on a cruise but unfortunately due to Covid, we weren’t allowed to dock in Gibraltar and Morocco.🙁 Not only was our cruise to Iceland postponed but then cancelled when the cruise company went bankrupt. All our other plans to travel abroad were scuppered.

2. I plan to complete all the English Counties by caching in the Isle of Wight and Greater Manchester. 

We managed to get to the Isle of Wight in February but later travel plans were abandoned.

3. I plan to add the Shetland Islands and a few of the counties around Glasgow to my Scottish Counties list.

I had planned to visit The Shetlands on the Iceland cruise but no luck unfortunately.

4. I want to bite a big chunk out of my solved Challenge Cache list, hopefully driving up my D/T ratio.

I maybe had a nibble at my Challenge Cache list but not much more. I managed to reach 500 1/1 caches for yet another challenge so now I will only look for a cache if it has at least a 2 in the D/T so I can drive these numbers up.

The weekly stats for this blog came in today. During the last week the blog has been visited 2008 times, which is mind blowing.🤯 I had another look and since I started this up in August 2016, there have been 150,310 views.🤯🤯

However, only one person has ever commented on the blog. Perhaps that person has been doing all the reading. If you are reading this, please say hello.👍🏻

After failing on five out of six resolutions last year, should I play safe or aim high? All those unfulfilled resolutions will still be on the list.

1. I plan to visit the following new Geocaching countries next year - Portugal, Morocco, Gibraltar, Albania, Iceland and hopefully Lithuania.

2. I plan to complete all the English Counties by caching in the Isle of Wight and Greater Manchester. 

3. I plan to add the Shetland Islands and a few of the counties around Glasgow to my Scottish Counties list.

4. I want to bite a big chunk out of my solved Challenge Cache list, hopefully driving up my D/T ratio.
