I "need" to go to St. Louis for some genealogy research.
I suppose that I could fit in a little LBing too ;)

If any of you go on a Friday, give me a heads up--I'd love to go with you. It's a 2-hour drive from home and I'm off on Fridays.

Thanks to PackerBackers, CordivaeBlue, and everyone who contributed to last weekend’s fun at Peace Begins with a Smile! We had lots of fun on the trail, at the pavilion, and on the playground. The weather was great for most of the day - much cooler than the gatherings in our region earlier this summer - and we were lucky enough to be not too far from the car during the brief downpour. We had rain gear in our pack, so we avoided a soaking and had just a brief wait before going back on the trail.

My Home Dome letterbox in Rhinelander has been relocated a few times over the years due to changes in the location's landscaping. The building's groundskeeping crews have been kind enough to never have tossed it. However, when I checked on it this weekend I found that they had also recently relocated a geocache to be literally right on top of my box. So, not willing to risk one of my favorite carves, I have completely relocated the box to be a couple blocks away. The new clues have been posted.

Just as a reminder you can reserve your campsites now. Crow Wing State Park books up every weekend during the summer. Don't wait to long before reserving your space.
I camped there this weekend they have campsites at are out in the open and also some that are more private.

I posted BINGO 2019 word lists, rules, and grids on the Yahoo group site. Please join us for this winter tradition! Cards are due to me by 12/31/18. New to Great Lakes Letterboxing BINGO? Fill out a card, check the daily word, and then cross of your winners. Terms are based on letterboxers you've found and people you've met. Don't worry.. there is also a list of general terms for everyone's use.

CHECK THE RULES, I'VE MADE A FEW TWEAKS THIS YEAR!😉

I'm curious if you have. If not, it's not too late to get out there and make a find!

I've found 3 on this year's list, which is two more than last year. All 3 are in the greater SE Michigan area.

I've found 13 and see a whole bunch on there which I would LOVE to find (but won't be...). There are so many great letterboxes out there.

Last year, it seemed as if the general terms were being called more than in the past, so you never really know what's going to happen. I think the way it's set up works to everyone's advantage.

Now to fill in my Bingo sheet and get it mailed off...I really should do it before Christmas...

I use a random generator to set the word order..so it's just the luck of the draw for general terms vs specific ones... even if it seems to vary from year to year.

Oh, I figured that. I just wanted to make sure people who didn't necessarily have a lot of box finds or exchanges or events knew that the general terms are totally worth adding to the card.

Thanks, Adam, for all your work on this. It's such a gift to letterboxers.

Hi there,

Our next trip will be a fall trip to the Door County Lighthouses and letterboxes. Tentative dates are Sunday, September 22 to Friday, September 27. You arrange your flights to and from Milwaukee and we’ll take care of the rest. We will rent either vans or a bus.

Visit Pinecone Adventures Facebook page and “like” it to get the latest news. If you are interested, please comment on the post about this trip.

Hope to see you on this trip that will be filled with fall beauty, the sea, lighthouses, letterboxes and, best of all, some terrific letterboxers!

Also still time to join the Bingo Side Wagers game, submissions accepted through 1/10.

Side Wagers 2019
(thanks to Azobox, Wisconsin Hiker, TJ Mich, Atom 118, and all other previous Side Wager coordinators!)

Side Wager: A wager made beyond the normal rules of the game. A hedge bet.

If you'd again like to add more excitement to the letterboxing bingo game (or another way to win), enter the Side Wagers Game. When will AtomicBeans pull the term that finally and completely fills in some player's card? Pick the right day, and you WIN! Again, this is the Big Game here, not the interim games. The date will be determined by the claiming of a successful full card by a BINGO player (and its certification by AtomicBeans).

To enter the side wagers game, decide what day you think the first full card winner will be crowned. Send me your guesses.

Your guess must be submitted before January 10, 2019.
Email: baliddletoo@yahoo.com

PLEASE DO NOT POST TO THE Atlas Quest BOARD

In the subject line, put "Bingo Sidewagers Game"
In the body, please indicate:
1. the date you have selected as a first choice,
2. one additional backup date
3. your trail name.
4. your email address

If multiple people in your household use the same trail name, you can submit one entry for each person. Please differentiate the entries to clarify each entry. For example: Team Rabbit: Brown Rabbit; Team Rabbit: Rainy Day Rabbit; or Hartx6: Becki and Hartx6: Matt, etc.

If two or more players choose the same date as a 1st choice, the first entry is given the date and the 2nd choice backup date will be assigned to anyone else who chooses the initial date. If both of a player’s choices have already been selected by other entrants, they will be assigned a date close to their 1st choice. This will be done by moving earlier *or* later until the next available date is found.

After you submit your entry, I will email you with confirmation of your officially selected date. Each person will be assigned one date only.

Once the bingo game gets underway, you will see me posting some mysterious messages. These messages are clues to who is currently in the running for side wagers fame. If you figure out the messages, please do not post answers to the message board in order to keep the mystery alive for others.
