Geocache Description:

** This cache IS at the listed coordinates. **

The Challenge is to find one Minnesota cache on a given day; two Minnesota caches on another day; three Minnesota caches on still yet another day and so forth all the way up to finding thirteen Minnesota caches on a day.  However; they can be done in any order and do not need to be on consecutive days. For instance, on day #1, you might find seven Minnesota caches. Now you have your 7-caches-on-a-day completed. A couple of days later you might find three Minnesota caches. OK, now you have your 3-caches-on-a-day completed. Therefore; the minimum number of days that it would take to complete this Challenge is 13 days.

NOTE: Your cache finds DO have to be in Minnesota.

Below are three additional stipulations:

I will explain this stipulation by using an example. Let's say that all you have left to do to complete the Challenge is to find 8 Minnesota caches on a day. You look at your finds log and discover that a while back you found 9 Minnesota caches on that day. You might think that this would complete the Challenge for you. Wrong! If you need to find 8 Minnesota caches on a day, then this means that you need to find (or have found) exactly 8 Minnesota caches on that day and no more.

On each caching day, you must find at least one Minnesota multi-stage cache or Minnesota puzzle/mystery cache. They can't all be traditional caches. So, obviously this means that for your 1-cache-on-a-day requirement, you need to find either a Minnesota multi-stage cache or a Minnesota puzzle/mystery cache.

No finds before 5/01/2008 are relevant to this Minnesota Baker's Challenge, in order to even out the Playing Field for everyone.

NOTE: Other than the multi-stage or puzzle/mystery requirement, the other caches for a day can be of any type, including events, virtual caches, earth caches or additional multi-stage caches or puzzle/mystery caches.

To complete this Minnesota Baker's Dozen Challenge, do the following:

Keeping in mind the requirements stated above, find and log the thirteen days of caching which consisted of one Minnesota cache found on a day, two Minnesota caches found on a day, three Minnesota caches found on a day and so forth up to thirteen Minnesota caches found on a day.

Create a public bookmark called "Minnesota Baker's Dozen Challenge" which contains 14 cache names inside it. These caches are the Minnesota multi-stage cache or Minnesota puzzle/mystery cache that you found on each of those thirteen days of caching. (Of course, it will be the only Minnesota cache found for your one-cache-on-a-day requirement!) Include in the comments field the date that the cache(s) were found and whether this was a 1-cache-day or a 2-cache-day or a 3-cache-day, etc. The 14th entry in this bookmark needs to be this Minnesota Baker's Dozen Challenge cache itself. It's fine to create the bookmark before you are done to track your progress. Just let me know when you have completed the challenge.

Once you complete your bookmark, post a note to this cache page. You may then seek the final. The final cache is probably a 2.5 star on difficulty.
