The Alphabet Challenge

A new challenge cache has popped up in Nebraska within the last week. Thankfully, it will require no work outside of finding it because I have all the requirements done. The challenge is based on the alphabet.

Called an alphabet soup challenge, the idea is to find a cache for every letter of the alphabet.  Now, sometimes you might find cachers who hide a series of alphabet related caches, but that is different.  For this challenge, the caches you use to complete the challenge must each start with a different letter of the alphabet.  For many letters, this isn’t a problem.  However, some letters do require some work to find caches near yourself starting with those letters. Some additional requirements can include all of the caches being from one state and excluding certain types of caches, in the case of the Nebraska version, which requires them to be Nebraska caches and event caches are excluded. Then there are some additional rules such as how to handle a cache beginning with A or The and whether they can be old finds or finds after the start of the challenge.

I’ve already created a bookmark list on my profile called TripCyclone’s NE Alphabet Soup. However, I’ll go ahead and list the caches I’m using here:
