Does any have any more information about the nature conservancy letterbox challenge. First their web site said clues would be available Jan.1 and then it changed to "coming soon"

Yes, I'm working on the Nature Conservancy series. :) Unfortunately, due to the insane amount of snow we've had, I haven't been able to get out and plant any of the boxes yet. But don't worry, the challenge is still on! The passports have been printed and you can either download from the Nature Conservancy website or request them by mail. :)

You can get more information and download the passport on their website here: http://www.nature.org/wherewework/northamerica/states/newhampshire/misc/art32613.html

And if you'd like to carve stamps for these series, let me know! :)

Oh, I forgot to let you guys know what happened. The nail polish made the sharpie not work. :( Then I had the same idea, AFF, about coating the sharpie with clear nail polish afterwards. Do you think I could find any around my house? Nope! Nothing. Only white. I've been cleaning and normally don't paint my nails.

In the end, I gave up. I put the sharpie directly on the plastic and called it good. If it last for two people, I'm happy. My name is on the side of the stamp so hopefully, I can help them figure out which one it is if it becomes a problem.

Thanks for everyone's help. If someone comes up with something that works on plastic and stays, please let me know. I'm having more fun carving the tiny stamps than the bigger ones. The pink stuff seems to be perfect for this type of stamp.

Thanks for the web sites and suggestions everyone. Sounds like I'm just going to have to be more organized. We only have a teenie, tiny post office here in town and that's what causing some of the problems.

The web sites have been good. I will keep looking around the bigger towns to see if I can find something that works off hours for me. Looks like no easy way to do it. At least now I have hours and phone numbers from the web sites.

Good luck finding them. I think most of them are gone by now. We saw them advertised two years ago, but we found out too late and they were all gone. So when they had them again this year 2010, we got them in November when there were lots of them.
They work very well. But we find that the teeth on the bottom will wear out if you walk on the ground with them. I was looking at my DD's pair and it had some wear on them already because she didn't take them off when we were walking back from the trail on the pavement.
I'm wondering if they sell just the teeth parts incase these wear out.
You might want to check out how to use them properly. Just found out we were walking the wrong way with them on, so it was a bit tiring. Was supposed to break the trail with them, so whoever is first has a harder job doing that. And when you step, the inner side is suppose to overlap a bit. I think we were waddling in them, but hey, it's our first time with snowshoes. :-D

Praying for comfort and peace for you, her and her family, for knowledge and skill for her doctors and quick recovery. How scary! The first 72 hours will be the hardest, because they will not have any of the culture results back. They will be forced to use antibiotics that cover a wide variety of infections a little instead of antibiotics that cover specific infections a lot. It makes it even more tricky when a person has had an allergic reaction in the past. Lifting you up to our Lord, may you feel his comfort. Momma, dbfamily

Just saw that Cabela's has a sell on snowshoes right now. Not as cheap as the ones in Ocean State Job Lot. Check their bargain cave on their website.

I don't want mine naked..it's just as much fun for me to see the handwriting and the stamps as it is the card.

If you want it to be sent with no envelope, it's naked (no envelope=no cover :) I really need to get back into Postcrossing, I have way too many postcards around here!

When I'm with Sweetness we play the parts of mom who is to distracted by her phone to pay attention to her child and child who is bored so goes poking around to entertain herself. Sweetness grabs the box and we're off. I usually by the mom part and Sweetness plays the child part.

When I'm alone, I play the part of fatty who can't take another step and must sit down at that very spot to rest and check her phone. When the coast is clear, I grab the box and go. No fat suit required!

If you've ever been in a room with her you hear clucking, braaaacking, crowing and barking. I suppose it could be any of the above. It's uncanny, in a Ripley's sorta way. We need more roosters in this world and fruitcakes!

So, do you all get kids involved with postcrossing? My DS, aged 10, would love to get mail. But, I would be the one making sure we are taking care of our responsibilities.

I have a jumble of an old postcard (PC) collection that I used to have in a poster frame. One of my favorites include a PC of showing drawings of winter and summer in Britain (cloudy and rainy). I sent that one to my now DH when I spent abroad in England.

I don't have kids myself, but I've received a number of cards from kids. I think it's great when they write the message themselves, even if they are too young to be able to write a lot. :)

A few years ago, I took my kids up to Boston and while there, we spent a day walking the Freedom Trail (which I HIGHLY recommend). We bought a great book about the trail and they had a nice write up about this flood and we were able to read it at the actual place that it happened.
