Anyone have an idea if there is a list of Challenge caches in or around MN? Tried looking but all I could find was worldwide ones.

We (and by we I mean the better half 99% of the time) maintain a bookmark list of mostly KB's challenges, but it has a few of the other ones as well.

Go to GC2YK5T

Boreal Walker has a pretty good list there.

Best way to find challenges is to look for mystery caches hidden by King Boreas or Boreal Walker. Here's a short list of some..

Challenge caches need to have, by definition, the word "challenge" in the title. While I haven't tried it, I would think that you could filter in GSAK for caches in Minnesota, "Challenge" in the title, and mystery/puzzle type caches and come up with a pretty good list.

I guess I should clarify. What I am looking for is caches that would qualify the challenge status on GC.com. As well it would be nice if they were someplace close by rather than in a whole other country.

I think loneeagle is looking for this type of challenge?

I list a bunch of Minnesota challenges I've completed on the cache description of this cache. I also highly recommend this bookmark list, which is sorted by state.

Are you looking for "challenge caches" or "Geocaching Challenges"?
