Just wondering how others are doing on the various challenges going around.
We are at:
5k Dani Radius - 10 to go out of a total of 232
FFP - 4 left within 2.7 km of home
Battlecache - 2 grid squares to go (will be able to get them in Regina next weekend)
OBG - 117 days to go til Aug 27. We have covered off Sept/Oct/Nov/Dec/Jan. Trying really hard not to miss a day.

Does anyone have any other challenges they are going after?

What is the "World Domination"?
I haven't heard of that one before.

Nice winter topic Geo-Indy. I’m interested in trying any personal challenges other cachers can point out.

I’m falling way behind in Battlecahe; I have 47 grid squares to go. I also have the scuba attribute to go for the “Cachettributes” geocache and need the numbers “0, 2, 4, 7, 9” for the “Alphanumeric” cache. There are 5 caches inside my “Dani” radius so it’s time for a trip out to La Barriere Park again.

I am also trying to find a cache placed each month since August, 2001 and still need 12. If I can get them I may try to work my way back to May, 2000, when Geocaching started.

Sounds like the makings of a new Challenge Cache , "OBG's Monthly Cache Challenge"

Fascinating thread Geo-Indy. Here's my 2 cents worth:

This past year has been a geo-fun filled one for me driven in large part by OBG Bingo. Just 3 caching days left. Targeting Feb. 3.

Within that year I completed Manitoba ABC Soup (Apr 26/09), Heartwarming Handyman Can (Nov 18/09), Cachettributes (Jan 2/10) and Operation Battlecache (sometime in December/09). My Dani radius is down to 5 caches; 2 mysteries and 3 traditionals one of which I have on tap for OBG Bingo in the event I need to walk to it because of a bad snow storm Smile

I've been chipping away at MHz's Alphanumeric Challenge. Still need 7 more: 0,2,6,7,8,9 & Q. Oh yeah. And glacier_ice's Photo Edited: 9 Aha!'s, 2 Hmm...'s and 3 Huh?'s

If anyone is curious as to what all the acronyms are, some of them are listed in our lexicon thread in this forum. For any others, just ask and we can explain.
