Anybody and everybody who enjoys carving rubber stamps should beg, borrow or steal a DVD of the 2013 documentary "Tim's Vermeer". Around Day 67 in the film, you'll understand why I say that. You will be able to relate, trust me.

Tip: You can probably borrow a copy for free from your local library. If you don't have a library card, get one -- they're free. If your library doesn't have a copy of Tim's Vermeer, chances are good they can get it through the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) program -- for free.

After you all have seen the film, we'll need to have a discussion about whether the process developed in the film can be adapted to carving rubber stamps. I suspect that it can, if only to apply an image to the rubber surface in preparation for carving. Or perhaps merely to generate an image on paper that can be scanned onto the 'puter and then transferred to the rubber using one of our tried-and-true transfer methods.

Another great Susquehanna Sojourn! Game day and game night have never been more fun. Though the temps were in the 90's the stamps and the fun did not melt. A night boxing game of Clue was a fun way to end the day. Thanks again for hosting such a fabulous event!

If you don't have a library card, get one -- they're free.

Perhaps for you but around here it costs $50.00/year.

Yes but it shuts out other boxers that you didn't intend to block. You could always go to a Word of Mouth status to get box clues.

I saw the movie a couple of years ago. I’m guessing you are referring to the camera lucida he used. Instead of spending the $50 to get the commercial unit you can get an app for an iPhone or iPad for about $5. Here’s a link showing it in use: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uzb7aCCdum4

I got it as soon as I learned about it. The devices take some getting used to. I built a stand and everything for mine but in the end it was just more trouble than it was worth to me. Plus it doesn’t help with the reversing issue. Maybe the commercial product would be easier to use.

Having said that, if you are interested in art at all I highly second the OPs suggestion about watching this film. It is fascinating!

We have three who have so far met the challenge. By now you should see the pattern of the clues. This is a little different that you aren't making 42 fit with John Galt etc. What those clues represents fit together for the ultimate solution.

Major General John Reynolds decided to bring his wing of the Army of the Potomac up and fight at Gettysburg. He effectively decided the location of the 1863 show-down in Pennsylvania. He died less than a hour after he made that decision. He was a really good general, maybe if he had lived, he'd have been great. We will never know.

5 weeks ago, I planted a letterbox dedicated to Reynolds, not far from where he was killed. You should go to Gettysburg, not just to letterbox, but to learn some of the 10s of thousands of amazing stories that are the essence of what America is. Stories ranging from who will win the war to those of local civilians who were completely overwhelmed by what they saw.

And BTW, there are many well planted boxes in the area.

Bonjour Grateful friends!

I'm hoping that all of you can join us at the Grateful Letterboxers - Dancin' in the Streets event!! It's coming up quickly!! (July 8-15, with July 14-15 being the primary weekend)

If you are planning to camp, I'd love to include you on the Grateful Camping Address List! Please, as soon as possible, send to me the following information:

1) Trailname(s) of all people on the site
2) Site #
3) Nights you are camping (e.g., Thurs/Fri would be someone arriving on Thursday and leaving on Saturday)

C'mon out, everyone, and do some dancin' in the woods!

I have eight of our books scanned in so far and I use the scanning software that came with the scanner for the start and MS Paint for cleanup and adjustments. I have also put copies of them on our tablet and they can be viewed at any time.
