Quote We had no trouble with Eagle's Nest but couldn't find that darn Squeezebox.



We completely forgot to look for Eagles Nest our first visit to Stone Mountain. We had so many clues in hand that we did not realize it unitl we were at the bottom of the mountain hunting Ryan's box. As for Squeezebox, well I took a nice tumble and there she was!!

I received word from Talking Turtle that she would be dropping this box off in the mail today. Cherokee, you are next on the list.

Hi Amanda!

I enjoyed the Oscars. It's the only awards show I try to watch every year. I especially enjoyed the musical numbers, Jamie Foxx's speech, that The Incredibles beat Shrek 2!!, that Dustin Hoffman had to whisper the winner into Barbara Streisand's ear since she forgot her glasses, and that most of the speeches were nice and short.

Million Dollar Baby is an awesome movie. I didn't see any of the other Oscar-nominated best picture movies, but I can tell you it deserved its accolades. The only bummer was that I hate boxing so I had to watch the boxing scenes between fingers covering my eyes. :-) But, I still loved the movie, even with the boxing theme, so that says something.

We enjoyed these boxes the other weekend as well and have plans to plant one here in the future. Just finished carving it the other day.

Wish we knew you were in town, we might have been able to get together.

Quote "We need to get out there and change that logbook for the squeezeboxers."

Granny and I are at the mountain frequently. We will be glad to replace the logbook for the sqeezeboxers if no one else is planning to do it. Seems like it was full when we found it several months ago.


Eli has been sent a new logbook from the squeezeboxers. It is twice as thick so it should last longer. I think he's just waiting for a day to go back out.

Granny, Paw Paw,
Drop us a line next time you are heading out there, or Mark, you too far that matter. We have a logbook made for the Stone Mtn. squeezebox that the squeezeboxers sent us, but we have had the hardest time getting over there to replace it. If we aren't busy we are too broke to get into the park, and then Aubrey is getting too pregnant to climb the mountain, so I need to make a solo trip. I am still trying to do it, but it needs to be done, so let us know.

Thanks,
Eli and Aubrey

Ok cool. Just let me know when you want to meet up and I'll replace it. No sweat. I need to check on DuckDuck while I'm out there too.

Cadenza, did you get any help with this? I checked the link on March 1st and I was able to read it just fine. I can copy & paste & email it to you if you wish. Just let me know.

A little campfire humor in light of our first camping trip of 2005. (I think I have covered at least half of the steps below).

15 Steps to Build a Campfire

1. Split dead limb into fragments and shave one fragment into slivers.
2. Bandage left thumb.
3. Chop other fragments into smaller fragments.
4. Bandage left foot.
5. Make structure of slivers (include those embedded in hand.)
6. Light Match
7. Light Another Match
8. Apply match to slivers, add wood fragments, and blow gently into base of fire.
9. Apply burn ointment to nose.
10. While fire is burning, collect more wood.
11. Upon discovering that fire has gone out while out searching for
more wood, soak wood from can labeled "kerosene."
12. Treat face and arms for second-degree burns.
13. Re-label can to read "gasoline."
14. When fire is burning well, add all remaining firewood.
15. When thunder storm has passed, repeat steps

Quote We also like the Continental Coffee shop- it has fond memories for Billy and me! Not to mention Memorable Books- have you ever poked around in there?


Hi KitCat! Continental is cool too. Wells Cargo is ok. And nope I haven't been in Memorable Books. I'll have to scope it out. I prefer A Capella books in Lil' 5 Points for obscure paperbacks.

Quote Yes, as far as Eagle's Nest goes, we need to start over at the top of the mountain, I think. We did the squeezebox first, and may have missed something in going back to do Eagle's


Yes, I think that's the problem. It is easier coming down. But you can also get my Extreme letterbox when you climb back to the top of the mtn. Shoot me a line next time you head out that way and I'll try to meet up with ya.

Take care,
Mark

Although the story is not much of a mystery, it is a light hearted fairy tale with a real live mystery intertwined!

I was only in town for USAirways international training (which is an all day thing) and I didn't think I would get time for letterboxing. I got out of class an hour early and had my Mom drive me down to McDowell so I could get the boxes. I was not dressed for hiking! (I was wearing a skirt and nice shoes). It probably would have been hilarious to see me tramping about the trail after those boxes!! I had a ton of red clay mud all over my shoes by the time I was done and I ended up hoofing it barefoot back along the handicapped access trail and the road to the Nature Center!! It took quite a while to clean my shoes! I was also racing against the sun as it was setting and my Mom was convinced that we were going to be stuck inside the park after "dusk"!

We had dinner at Sonny's BBQ on Tivola before she took me back to the airport.

Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum mysteries: One for the Money, Two for the Dough, etc are hilarious! I also enjoy the Burglar series by Lawrence Block. Burglars Can't Be Choosers, The Burglar in the Closet, etc. (He also has an entertaining Hit Man series: Hit Man and Hit List are the only two books so far). Bill Fitzhugh has some wonderfully funny books, starting with Pest Control. Dana Stabenow writes mysteries set in Alaska and one that is particularly funny is called Break Up. Also the Joan Hess Maggody Mysteries are a hoot. (they are set in Arkansas and have some interesting southern humor!)

Quote So, any thoughts on the Oscars?


I'm happy that The Incredibles won best animated picture because I'm a big fan of Pixar. =) Anyhow, the original Shrek already won best animated picture a few years back--it wouldn't have seemed fair to have the sequel win again! Other than that, I didn't really care what happened. *shrug* I'm not really an Oscars kind of person. =)

Sounds like you had quite a time! The red clay here is a mess to clean up! I once got locked into Bond Park in Raleigh looking for the Bond, Fred Bond series. It taught me to park outside the park gates if I were to be boxing in a race against daylight. Hope the stamp was worth it! Maybe you should consider bringing a change of shoes with you at all times, LOL.
