Geocache Description:

Welcome to the Gilby Challenge Series! 🎢 

This challenge cache is hidden at the posted coordinates. The hide is a standard park-and-grab but the D/T has been adjusted to fit the challenge. To claim a find, sign the log and meet the requirements listed below. You are welcome to sign the log at any time, post a note, and log a find once you meet the requirements.

This cache is placed in honor of my home state! Minnesota got its name from the Dakota word "Mnisota" which means "clear blue water." The state's motto is L'etoile du Nord, or "Star of the North" 

Challenge requirements: find 500 caches with the 'available in winter' attribute, 250 caches with the 'scenic view' attribute, 100 caches with the 'ticks' attribute, 75 caches with the 'recommended for tourists' attribute, 5 caches with the 'tree-climbing required' attribute, 3 caches with the 'may require wading' attribute, and 1 cache with the 'boat required' attribute.
