I boxed in St. Paul last year. Anything by twofreetimers and Dartmoor Dreamer are always treasures to be found.

That would be an incredible choice for a big event. It's a gorgeous piece of Ohio. And it's spread out with lots of trails.

While walking down the street a corrupt Senator was tragically hit by a car and died. His soul arrives in Heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.
"Welcome to Heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts you see, so we're not sure what to do with you.
"No problem, just let me in," says the Senator.
...
"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we'll do is have you spend one day in Hell and one in Heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity."
"Really? I've made up my mind. I want to be in Heaven," says the Senator.
"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."
And with that St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to Hell.
The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him. Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people. They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.
Also present is the devil who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go. Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.
The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in Heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him, "Now it's time to visit Heaven."
So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and before he realizes it the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.
"Well then you've spent a day in Hell and another in Heaven. Now choose your eternity."
The Senator reflects for a minute before he answers: "Well, I would never have said it before, I mean Heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in Hell."
So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to Hell.
Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.
The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.
"I don't understand," stammers the Senator. "Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable.
What happened?"
The devil smiles at him and says, "Yesterday we were campaigning. Today you voted."
VOTE WISELY IN NOVEMBER 6th!

Aw shucks....
We have great carvers here in Minne-snow-ta: Tie Dye Sue, hartwolfzell, estella & skootch, Traveling Queen of Hearts....
Remember that it very likely cold here in November, so look for letterbox clues that mention hanging pouches or "do not un-pin" (so the box is not frozen to/in the ground).

If I lived in Hocking Hills, I would definitely have my hands in this.

So I couldn’t find anything specific to letterboxing but here are the geocaching rules. Similar, but in my opinion a little more liberal than the US National Park regulations, or that just may be my interpretation, but I’m not a lawyer, I’m a dawgdok.

I have one of those, too! In fact, adjacent numbers were called, but not mine. Of course, it would have broken a long losing streak, so it's not all bad.

**********Pubic Service Announcement ********** Pubic Service Announcement *********** Pubic Service Announcement

Please be advised that all digging for chiggers is to be done in private by consensual partners. We know how you are, and some things cannot be unseen. Additionally, "scratching 'em where they live" is a violation of state statutes, despite its tolerance in certain counties with low tooth-to-tattoo ratios.

In consulting with the Highway Median Roadkill and Spring Festival Cookbook division of the Parks & Wrecks Dept., we will remind you that there are plenty of dead armadillos on Texas roads. Perhaps you can make do with those. They are easier to catch and have the added benefit of an olfactory experience, though you should be prepared for passersby pointing and laughing (which you should report immediately to the Public Commission for Civil Open Politeness (PC COPs). Advice to poke with a stick is an inappropriate euphemism, so we won't say it.

I've been boxing for 12 years, and have always gone by the philosophy of "what they don't know wont hurt them."

As long as the box was just off a trail, or in a safe area I would look for it . . . heck, I'd even plant one there (have to make sure the clues are cryptic enough not to pop up on their searches).

However, if a box is WAY off the path, in an unsafe/fragile area, I'd stay away.
