Welcome to the Longmire Challenge! This great TV show based on the series by Craig Johnson is one of my favorites. Please join me for the fun.

This is a task based challenge.

There were six seasons of the Longmire TV show. For each season - 1 through 6 plus the Overview, there are a list of tasks to complete. 

Levels of Play:
Level 1: All tasks for 1 complete season
Level 2: All tasks for 2 complete seasons
Level 3: All tasks for 3 complete seasons
****Level 4: All tasks for all complete seasons

Please Note: the Overview is NOT a season and is optional for completing the challenge.

Special Note: Many of the tasks are open to interpretation. For example, if the task calls for reading a book where someone is betrayed - if it's betrayal to you, it works.

Tasks for at least one full, complete season must be done in order to count the challenge as being completed.

The challenge begins September 1, 2018. There is no end date. 

***There are a total of 71 tasks for those who choose to do the entire challenge.
