Some habits are hard to break, and so I couldn't leave 2018 behind without my year in review blog post. Since geocaching has been the topic of this blog from its inception I have to report that I have found none this year. I actually did search for one after I saw a group of people searching through some bushes. I became curious and turned on my geocaching app. Sure enough there was a cache at that location and... it was missing or I just couldn't find it. Additionally after wild fire made many of my remaining active geocaches unreachable I disabled them. A reviewer then archived them before the roads were even reopened to the public. After that I pulled a "lazyboy" and archived almost all of my others.

Highlights for the year include:
  • Sixth year of Blazers Season Tickets
  • Ran my first 5e D&D Campaign
  • Took over as Treasurer for the WCC
With no geocaches found I have none to list as favorites.  I'll probably try and adopt out a couple of my remaining caches and archive the rest this year. I might search for some, it looks like the app has been improved.

While 2018 was not the best year ever for mostly personal reasons it wasn't that bad. I've branched out to hit a few more restaurants here in Portland rather than just food carts. I've really started to focus on collecting Oregon Trade Tokens which is proving to be a lot of fun. I do hope to get out and do more hiking. Geocaching could still be a part of that. We'll see what 2019 has in store.

The year is over. I though 2016 was an odd year, but 2017 just continued the oddity. As for geocaching I didn't even end up finding a Christmas cache ending 14 years of tradition. I did however attend a lot of coin shows.

Highlights for the year include:
  • First geocache found in Colorado
  • Attended the ANA Summer Seminar
  • 5th year of Blazer season tickets
I'd normally list my top caches here, but with only 4 finds and none of them great I won't bother. You'll also notice that I didn't list Star Wars in my highlights of the year.

I imagined finding some more geocaches, but since the new app is pretty much useless in free mode there went the easy finds. Loading up my GPA and going off geocaching just doesn't appeal to me anymore. I'll probably start to archive some of my caches as I can get to them and remove the containers. Others I might have other geocachers collect or adopt.
