Reach Admin's end of 2014 Hit Total (1,720)
100 New Zip Codes
5 "Wish List" hits (a hit in one of the counties from my "Top 100 Counties where I want a Hit" - the yellow ones are completely surrounded - N.G.C. would be my New Glob Count if I got a hit in one of these, I am currently at 160 places hit in my Home Glob)

[I'll be keeping my master list off-line, but I'll put the big impact ones here]

2015 Goals for me would be

A. Hook up old home glob to new home glob
B. Get at least 2 "surrounded" Counties.
C. Get at least 100 new Counties.
D. Complete at least one more State Bingo (currently I have NJ and DE Bingos - the most likely candidates are PA, NY, CT, RI and NC)
E. Expand my Home Glob to get into at least 20 states.
F. Hook my big Florida Glob into my new Home Glob.

Not sure all these goals are realistic, but might as well dream big or go home!

Currently 7514.15 behind Diamondback Dave in TrackPoints. Should be able to catch him. 70392.17 behind Darth Slurpee - that would be hard, but maybe.

Get various bingos that are based on type of bill hit (in general, I pay more attention to that than where they get hit)

2015 Goals

  1. Enter one bill at TrackDollar
  2. Get more hits in the first 15 days of January than Alan will muster for all of 2015 — even with the 40,000+ more total entries he says he'll have over me at the end of the year

Darth Slurpee starts 2015 off at 110,303.27
Alan From Rochester starts off at 40,333.71

Points needed to pass = 69969.57

TrackDollar point differential every single day in 2015 required to overtake = +191.7

…also, I averaged 164 TD points/day last year. I suspect that will more or less continue. You'll have to keep up with that, too, in addition to the 191.7/day to overtake. That would be ~129,830 entries — minus a few hundred for your hits — you'll be shooting for. Shocked

I recognized that passing Darth was unlikely, even with my massive stealthing. I knew he was still active, but I didn't know he remained that active.

Get my hit rate up. This mainly entails TD-marking some bills I would have otherwise stealthed or WG-marked.

288 No  Embarassed
Alan's current pace (.87 TD hits/day)has him getting 312 hits in 2015, and with more promised marked bills out there, he should easily exceed that.

+356 TD points/day?

So far, -12 TD points/day  tongue

You two fight over TD points all you want.

For me, the only stat that REALLY matters is Hit Rate.

It figures that I'm off to a slow start after posts like this. Razz
Then again, December 2014 was a particularly busy month. So maybe that got my hopes up.
New holiday money helps me in early December. I had extra enterable bills late in the month for another reason, and now I have fewer enterable bills for the opposite of that reason.

LOL, we all go thru cycles.

You're still by far my most productive Track Child.

#1 - Achieved
#2 - Fell way short.  Rolling Eyes  Alan's already gotten 347 hits, and I was only able to muster 288 hits the first half of January. Embarassed My instincts told me to go for all of January with my comparative goal, but I decided to be aggressive. I underestimated Alan's ability to get hits while overestimating mine. Maybe Alan and I should leave each other out of our goals in 2016. Razz

I think I'll be going back to my tried-and-true (and easily achievable) solitary goal in 2016.

Cute & Funny. I will probably manage one strap. I'm not hitting any of the other goals I set for myself I January. I will have an update to this thread in the next few days.
