Geocache Description:

GCYP7T An Alphabet Soup Challenge for Washington
GC15Y83 An Alphabet Soup Challenge for Utah

Those were the days. I walked home from school for lunch everyday. Mom had hot soup, a sandwich, and a glass of milk waiting for me. My favorite was alphabet soup. I would try to find all 26 letters and also spell words. Mom didn’t serve it often. She said that I dawdled too much and it got cold. (Never heard of microwaves back then.) Well, now you can create a soup of caches you have found, one beginning with each of the 26 letters of the alphabet. Read on...


Minnesota Challenge:
Alphabet Soup


The challenge:  to find a Cache in the State of Minnesota beginning with each letter of the alphabet on or after January 1, 2008.


To complete this cache:



Create a public bookmark called "Minnesota Challenge: Alphabet Soup":


Include this cache in your bookmark; since you haven’t found it yet, it doesn’t count – you will need another “M” cache
  - Keep this bookmark public for a minimum of 3 months after completing the Challenge
  - Include one Minnesota cache you have found for each letter of the alphabet
  - In the cache comments, include the date you found the cache


Successfully find and log a cache (no events) beginning with each letter of the alphabet.  The letter must be the first letter of the cache name. Examples:
  - Zebra Stripes = Z
  - The Zebra's Stripes = T
  - Extra Zebras = E
  - Xtra Zebra Stripes = X
  - “Blurry Zebra Stripes” = B
  - 1 More Striped Zebra = 1, so it doesn’t count for anything!
  - One More Zebra Stripe = O

A look at your alphabetized bookmark list will indicate whether or not you have each letter

  3. The posted coordinates are not correct. They are about a mile from the cache site. The actual coordinates are posted below.

Note: if you can not or do not want to use the "bookmark list"
you may list all 26 caches with GC####'s and links in a posted note.

Additional Hints (No hints available.)
