Hey all,

I'm 99.99999% sure there was an Alphabet County Challenge, with the hide somewhere in MN and I apparently didn't bookmark it. I've tried searching for it, but I'm coming up empty. Anyone recall this one? Did I miss out on it before it was archived?

Thanks!

Ditto! I should really do that. I was in Texas in May and took a really stupid trip to the Mexican border just to qualify, getting back to my hotel at 3AM. But might I recommend south-central Texas for those pesky U, V, and Z letters. Still missing Q, but the wild card takes care of that.

Can't you use this 'wild card' thing?

OK, so does Minnesota have all the counties to qualify for this challenge?

No E or U either. I have all MN counties, plus St. Croix in WI (Hudson, for X), and still needed E, Q, U, V and Z.

Why does that Z county in SD have to be in one of the most inconvenient possible locations? Sad

Zavala County, Texas, isn't exactly a monument to convenience either.

I still need Q, U, V and Z. With the wild card, I'm down to three of those four.

Using St. Croix, WI for the letter X, I need Q, V, and Z; and with the wildcard Iím down to 2 counties left.
