Hello all,

I was tooling around on Project-GC one day, and I found this alphabetic challenge cache that required you to find caches starting with the letters of the alphabet in order, but not necessarily in consecutive order.

For example, given this list of finds:

Code:
    
Found it   10/10/2014   Miller Bridge     
Found it   10/12/2014   Aloe There!
Found it   10/14/2014   Cache Key
Found it   10/15/2014   Ring Around The Ridge
Found it   10/15/2014   Behind the Pine
Found it   10/19/2014   MD Cluedo 2 of 10
Found it   10/19/2014   The Ende (With an E!!)
Found it   10/19/2014   Bone Collector
Found it   10/19/2014   Welcome to Blandair Park
Found it   10/24/2014   Alpha Cache
Found it   10/25/2014   Cross Multiplication
Found it   10/25/2014   Walking Around Columbia Hickory Ridge


Aloe There! would count for A. Behind the Pine would count B. Cross Multiplication and not Cache Key would count for C because I found Cache Key before I found a cache that started with B. Then the next cache I found that started with D would count for D, etc.

My problem is that I can't recall for the life of me what the name of the challenge cache is. I know it has a challenge checker, but I can't remember if this challenge was in Maryland or one of the neighboring states. Searching for alpha and order on the challenge checker page brings up several versions of the standard alpha challenge.

Does anyone recall the name of this challenge off the top of their head? If so, I will be eternally grateful.

The two closest would be

https://coord.info/GC38GBN - ABC 123 - An Alphanumeric Challenge
https://coord.info/GC20A4C - Alphanumeric Challenge - Cache Name

Thanks lostsole, but the challenge cache I'm trying to remember for requires that the caches be found in alphabetical order, but not necessarily consecutively.

(L)Earn Your ABC's Challenge GC589G8 in New Jersey is a cache like you are describing.

That's it! Thank you! Maybe this was the one I saw and perhaps there isn't one in Maryland... yet.

That would be a great Challenge cache to have in Maryland but under the new Challenge Cache rules, AlphaNumeric Challenges are no longer allowed.

Challenges are not allowed based on these cache page elements: cache titles, cache owner, GC Codes, publishing Reviewer, cache page text, or D/T ratings of events.
