Hi, Thanks Deniserows! I definitely enjoy AQ. Just wish there was more LBing activity in my area. I think I'm going to have to go visiting family (CA, OH, & GA) to get a fix.

Take care,

Hi, Katrina of Buster Pirates-

We're about 30 minutes outside of London and have been very busy planting boxes. If you're looking for a short jaunt. Would love to do an exchange too!

Safe journeys,

Multiple boxes from one person in a tracker gets confusing when filling in the found grids. It is much simpler if the participant number and box numbers match. If you must add then put them at the bottom of the list. I prefer for people to simply add the stamp as a bonus surprise that can be logged in seperately.

Thank you, Traveling Dudeks! You've given me lots of great ideas research to get a feel for the area and what I want to plant. The (Letter)Box Elder Bug sounds promising!

Thanks again,

Quote The Sharpie flip chart markers seem to act like an emulsifier. It wets the old ink and the old ink will apply to the paper as well.


If you planned it out though, you could get some really interesting and exciting combinations, like:

Gurple
- apply gold water based ink to the stamp and let it dry. Then apply your nefariously won purple and stamp. Voila! Gurple. Brilliant.

Quote I caught my first mess of crappie today. If the weather holds up like this some of you folks will enjoy some fine fishing at the gathering.



I just saw that the weather on Friday is going to be 72 and for Saturday it is going to be 74. They didn't have Sunday on there, but seems to be looking good for fishing I'd say, and nice for boxing too. (smile)

Quote Like the root ridden trails at Latta Plantation?


When CDQ and I were there, it wasn't the roots causing problems. It was the teenagers who were off hiding in the woods smoking illegal substances. The smell is a dead give-away, even in the great outdoors. Quite an educational experience for my innocent teen-age daughter.

It's only been 40 degrees both times we went and school days, so no "illegal substances". My neice did poo in the woods though.

AC Moore is a big box craft store, like Michaels. Hobby Lobby might have them, but someone else will have to confirm that for me.

One hole, one post -- foam makes for more stable covers, and less pages makes it a little loose so that the pages pivot on the post without the screw working loose.

Atlas Quest: International Letterboxing
Quote I discovered that the punch made by the Marvy circle craft punch


Years ago my mother made hand pierced lampshades. I now have some of her punches, which resemble pencils with a pointy end, and they are really good for making small holes for mini logbooks. I have two sizes of these punches, but am sure they make other larger sizes also. I will hunt the Internet and see if I can find any links to them.

Here is a website that has the two piercers that I have. If you click on the link, then go to tools on the righthand side of the page and then go to the second page of tools, it will be in the second row. What do you think about the transfer paper they have on here? Have any of you tried this brand or type?

No, that's not a typo.

I overheard my children discussing the topic of my ahem . . . addiction . . .

My eldest said that I had "letterpox" -- so it's not an addiction after all. It's a disease!!

No cure, please.

I have a piercer like that -- it came with a scrapbooking tool set from Making Memories.
http://www.makingmemories.com/products/tools/toolkit.cfm

I've tried transfer paper, not that brand. It didn't work for me on PZ Cut, but I'm no expert on transferring anything.

I posted an earlier message about using a quilling tool (under $3 at Hobby Lobby without the coupon) for making holes in logbooks. It's near the scrapbooking embellishments. Looking at the lampshop piercer, I know I have one of those that came in my pottery tools kit, but it is a bit fatter than a quilling tool.

My kids told me it must be a mental condition. I agree with you, that it is (hopefully) an incurable disease. Much to their chagrin, a couple of my grown children are becoming hopelessly infected.

For the ATC's, I think it would be great to stay with the 2.5 x 3.5 size, so they will fit in with anyone who already collects ATC's and they will fit in the baseball card sleeves for easy storage, viewing and protecting.

Another idea is that ATC's made with one's personal stamp might be great to put in boxes for first finders... I know I'd be excited to find those.

Hey Star Birthday Girl of the Galaxy!
See how the stars sparkle and the planets twinkle? That's because they are all celebrating this most GLORIOUS of days -- the day when you arrived on this particular little orb! Even Pluto has put on her party dress (holding no hard feelings at being kicked out of the Solar System!) Yes, this remarkably non-participatory group will be at any Birmingham event. The One Who Has Gone a Bit Overboard will even make stamps and hide new boxes for your Event -- which is different from the tiny gathering (though how he can possibly hide even MORE sort of makes my head spin to think about, and of course I am saying he will when he is at work and I have not talked to him specifically about THIS. . .)
Let us know what you want us to do, and PLEASE restrain yourself and keep the first thing small. The Event can come in its own good time.

Not sure where to put this, so here it is:

Many of you may know about the multitude of tragedies that have befallen our friend, PurpleintexKim: Her husband's injury, death in the family, multiple illnesses and now losing almost everything to a tornado.
I want to emphasis up front that she has not asked for any help and did not ask me to post this! But I think it would be nice if we could do something as a community to assist and encourage her and her family. They have two small girls, ages 4 and 7.
I have two suggestions:
1) They have a Wal-mart nearby. Gift cards could be used to purchase almost everything they need.
2) Kim lost all of her letterboxing stuff, including all of the stamps from letterboxes that she has found, traditional and otherwise. I think it would be great if we could replace that for her. If you know she found one of your boxes, would you send the stamp image to her? You can check her logbook online to see what she has found.
She gave me permission to give out her address (it's a PO box), so if you would like to help, please AQ mail me and I will send it.
I hope that you will not think that this is in bad taste, or that I am pressuring anyone to participate. If anyone else would like to make other recommendations, they are welcome!
Thank you!
Stacy
