Ok, I'm at classic, despite three trims (I've been here a while) and I'm wondering how to set mini goals from here.
i'm thinking fingertip, knee, mid calf, ankle, floor...

BUT these are far apart from each other. All my height (that's a tad misleading-I'm short) is in my legs. the fingertip/ knee/ mid calf are about 6 inches apart.
To compare, waist to hip is not worth measuring on me.

are there other points I'm obviously not seeing?

Well, before fingertips you've got thumbs.

And before thumbs, you've got wrists ;)

I suppose between mid-thigh, you can call it quarter thigh? Then knee, bottom of knee, top of calf, mid calf, bottom calf, ankle, etc. There was a big and rather humorous list of the various lengths from bald to trailing on the floor. What ever happened to that?

Non-artificial minigoals are few and far between classic and ankle.

Classic
Past Classic/Upper Thigh
Mid Thigh
Lower Thigh
Top of Kneecap
Knee
Bottom of Kneecap
If you have enough definition, you might get a couple mini-goals out of Calf
Ankle
etc.

One of my favorite lengths is "longer than shorts." Of course this length can vary, depending on the length of your shorts, but that's part of its beauty! Buy a skimpy pair of shorts and you'll reach it fast.

Do you mean this one (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/vbjournal.php?do=article&articleid=24)? ;)

I suppose you could do 1st set of knuckles, 2nd set of knuckles, fingertips to break that up.

Apart from that I can think of many, unless you have some moles on your legs or something you can use as a landmark.

I was going to suggest wrist but then I checked where it was on me and it's only halfway between TB and classic on me.
