Saturday afternoon after grabbing a box in Indiana, my husband said to me, "How would you like to go to Iowa?" "Well, why not? We've never been there." So off we went, and after spending the night in Illinois, we crossed the bridge into Burlington, then drove up to Wapello. In the 1860s my grandmother's family settled there and my father and I used to dream about going there and seeing the area. Hubs and I found the country cemetery where my relatives are buried and we got to photograph my great-great-grandfather's stone and several others belonging to the family.

While heading back it occurred to me that on Father's Day, 20 years after we lost Dad, I finally got to realize his dream.

We then drove back to Burlington and scored our Iowa box at Grandpa's Homemade Ice Cream. We really enjoyed our very short visit to Iowa and look forward to returning.

August Update ~ I've been in contact with KnottyKnitterDirtMonkey and discovered that her trip did not work out as planned and it's not happening.
Since there are three 'agree's on the previous post, is anyone still interested in a boxing day in the Des Moines area?
PM me and when I get some kind of response(s), there may be some kind of get together (or not ~ depending). At the least I will let the interested folks know who each other are so if nothing comes of this, they can at least stay in contact with each other and make their own fun.

Hi Iowa boxers!!
My son (Kevin Mouse) is doing a project about Iowa and I was wondering if a few of you Iowa boxers could help him out by sending him a postcard or some tourist-y type of info about your state! We don't know anyone there!
If you could help him out with his project please AQ me and I'll send you our address. If you are able to send some tourist maps/books I will pay postage!
Thanks!

If you want to have it sent directly, and at my expense (being a taxpayer), use this link and order whatever you want.

OK, so I could never seem to get my poop-in-a-group last year . . . My Easter Series (Holy Week) is finally re-planted!! I'll leave it in place for a few weeks, so anyone that happens to have time to stop in town, I hope you'll make time to swing by West Des Moines.

Also, my Kids wanted to carve and expand the series, so check back before you hit the trail!

Enjoy =)

Dear Iowa Boxer's,

The Kindly Vikings are invading Cedar Rapids... well, we're moving here anyway. We are looking forward to boxing on some fresh turf, and meeting some of you.

If you know of some great boxes around Iowa (or nearby states) that we can pillage, please share!

See you on the trails,

Cedar Rapids? in Iowa? A real letterboxing family? Fantastic!

There are all sorts of boxes scattered from Iowa City down through and around Burlington, and a bit to your west and southwest, not to mention a few sitting in my house waiting for spring. You will not be bored.

A thoughtful letterboxer sent me a pine cone to be planted in Maine as part of the Pine Cone Project. I know her name and address but didn't jot down her trailname. Please pm me so I may give you proper credit as carver when I plant.

Thank you, Teacup

You are welcome, I'm sure. Maude didn't think Maine should be left out of the loop so carved us a pine cone for our very own.

My husband, our two kids and myself are going out to Iowa in September! I was wondering if there are any letterboxes along I-80, or not too far from it, that are must grabs. Anywhere from Pennsylvania to the Des Moines area of Iowa. We're going about 40 miles west of Des Moines to Stuart.
We will also be going to Winterset to see the new John Wayne Museum!
Thank you to everyone in advance!

Help needed in Iowa City. Box One of "M's Quest" Replanted today (rainy day) and found the 4th tree cut up pretty bad so we put the box under the 3rd tree but it needs to be hidden better with a couple of rocks or something. Could a close by boxer help out please? Let me know if you can.

Thank you

No timeline. Just looking for a home near the universities. Let me know if you can do one or both and I'll drop them it/them into the mail.

If anyone is interested, a substantial number of new letterboxes were just published in the Austin, MN area. That is the far South Central Part of Minnesota, so not that far away from Northern IA. Also, should you choose to get these, we highly recommend the new and improved Spam museum in downtown Austin. It's quite nice. That is all.
