Announcing fantastic letterboxing tours coming to your community.
Do you want to make your vacation extra special this year? Are you visiting relatives and not relishing sitting on the front porch all week talking about the old times? Would you rather be letterboxing? Have you printed the clues but aren’t sure whether the neighborhood is safe, or don’t know where the public transportation really stops. Have you looked for boxes in the area before just to realize they are mostly all are missing or soaked? Are you going on a business trip and have a free afternoon?
Call us! Our professional guides will help you through the game. We will put you at the correct trailhead or in the exact park so you can focus on finding that box with the assurance you are in the right place. We guarantee a 100% find rate on all the boxes you seek. If you don’t find every box we point you to, you pay nothing. We print all the clues or you can bring your own. We will tell you before you go out if the boxes you’re looking for is missing. Our Local Letterboxing Tour Company can also include mystery and bonus boxes for a slight extra charge. Depending on the location our tours start at $40/hr for a group of three individuals. Our fees do not include admission to parks, zoos, pavilions etc. We provide all the transportation to and from the letterboxing location and will pick you up anywhere within 15 miles of that location. We also provide light refreshments during your outing. All of our guides are experienced letterboxers with more than a thousand combined finds to their name. We can provide tours for larger groups upon special request. Some of our tours are designed for handicapped individuals and children under 12 as well.
We currently have guides waiting for your call in Tampa, FL. Williamsburg, VA. and Pasadena, CA.
Call now to make your reservation 277-453-6657.

Carvers: We are currently seeking for good carvers. Carvers who routinely get blue diamond’s on Atlasquest and have lots of plants. We will pay from $30 to $100 for a complete box (stamp, logbook w/baggies, camouflaged container). Our operations staff will contact you with the theme and will mail you a check upon receipt of your box. Our plan is to increase the finding opportunities in some of America’s greatest tourist spots. We are currently working with the largest theme parks in the US on an exclusive planting contract.
Careers: Our team has the technology to take on big challenges, the integrity to do it responsibly and the drive to make letterboxing a national pastime. If you enjoy the hobby, are in good physical shape, and get along well with others you could have an exciting future with LLTC. . All our guides are independent contractors and set their own hours of work.

To my friends in beautiful Northern California, I must say I was planning to visit you this day, but that can not occur. A higher authority has insisted my presents is required elsewhen immediately. Princess Leah, will you be joining us.

So, to the effervescent Denise on the Water, the compassionate Wendy in the Bay Area, the masterful Grumpy and the confident Grinch both of Saint Joseph; to the lovely Lisa and her talented Robb, and to the cosmic Doublesaj and her True Blue, I bid you all good health, good fortune and a clear mind.

Lastly to my dear friend Kitty in the Villa of Sue, I am so sorry I have never met you face to face.

Your Most Humble Servant,

OBJuan

That was my first semi solo event - a 14 hour one no-less.
I think I got only half the boxes you planted because I was so diverted by the beauty of the surroundings or the distractions of the haunted. Not only were the stamps I did get amazing, but the people I met along the way were captivating. I will write an entire short story on my adventure as soon as I can. Your event proves, hands down, take a tiny little town with no boxers (let alone BOXES) plant them and they will come. I had an amazing time... Thank you so much. The historical aspect to this series, in this TINY little town is unmatched in the 4 years I've been at it :claps:

WELL DONE GALS!

Can you say... some people go to GREAT lengths to invite someone to an intimate gathering of a Ship of Fools ; )

Pack your backs and pack those waders... looks like we're heading into rough waters! And crossing borders to do it!

Did someone advise New Hampshire?

It was a great day indeed at Spring Grove, such fine company in such beautiful surroundings.
Jeeves and Dude, you are welcome :)
GypsyLadybug and Cookie Cutter were great companions per usual and very patient slack-boxing guides for Jabber (record find day - woo-hoo!) and myself, stopping at ones they had both found before.

At Callaway, not near the raptor show

True. I forgot about that.

We went to the raptor show in January and left Scooter and Chipper in the RV. One of the birds (can't remember which one, maybe the vulture) actually walks up and down the aisle at one point and having a dog there would not be a good idea. Mine are little white Bichons. Neither the birds nor the dogs would be happy being so close to each other.

At SMP not on the actual mountain or in the Songbird area.

I remember one time when we were at SMP Scooters Dad went to the top to get a box while Scooter and I looked for one near the carving. A long time ago dogs used to be allowed on the walk up trail.

Also, they can't go in any buildings at either place.

Alas dear slpa... some of us have to work on Sunday mornings and cannot stay up until the wee small hours of the morning.

But even as I attempted to sleep - those dasterdly fools kept laughing at me in my dreams.

So - as I sit here at work - waiting to open the envelope - I'll have to wait a bit longer. Seems folks need monograms before fools get to relish contents of a mysteriously laughing package ; )

Seems my 12 foolish friends from over the border (well 11 of them - with one Maine descenter in their midst) have gone to a very elaborate time to invite Team MudCup to Ship of Fools by enticing us with passports, maps and mystery...

Now mind you - Tea doesn't do water - so hopping aboard the SS Ship of Fools could be treacherous at best...

And looking at the weekend that it falls on - there's a Friday the 13th in the mix. I sense trouble right out of the gate.

Just goes to show you - 'keep your friends close, and your foolish friends closer' ; )

Oh, I know, but I was teasing Mouse Nanny and they aren't at Fred Bond park anyhow. Besides, I have to do a bit of research to have more than a "go here, then here" clue.

Airstream, I know it is a long drive for you, but if I am lucky, the boxes will be there for a long time. I know you'll be down that way again.
