As much fun as I have had traveling the back roads and planting boxes wherever I go, I'm going to have to hang up my hat for a while. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 weeks ago. Tomorrow I have surgery. Sometime right before or after Christmas I will start heavy-duty kick-my-ass chemo, at which point I will likely hibernate even more out of sight than I already have been.

When Live & Breathe was going on, I had a few people ask if I had time to meet up for exchanges. I didn't because I was in the process of having tests. And, honestly, I've enjoyed the anonymity out here in Texas. I haven't been to an event since 2010 when I was living in east TN.

But I had planned to meet up with a couple of local letterboxers to pass off a couple of HH that I can't move forward. I thought I'd make a mini-event (which is not an event-event) to see if any other local (Dallas, TX area) letterboxers would like to come have dinner with us. There will be no event stamp because I have surgery tomorrow and I can't guarantee I'll feel like carving anything after that. (But if someone feels like creating one and donating it, I'll set it out.)

I'm thinking the best date would be Friday, Decemeber 14... evening because I don't know yet if I'll have appointments during the day. Location will be near Allen, TX. There are many letterboxes to find in the area, so if you travel to spend the night you won't be without letterboxes to find.

I want to go ahead and list the event this afternoon but I thought I'd post here for comments or suggestions before I make it official.

I’ll be thinking of you and I encourage you to take it VERY easy for a while. I made the sorry mistake of rushing into things too quickly (I also had 3 children under 6 at the time) after my mastectomy and subsequent treatment. Please be easy on yourself. No stamp is worth sheer exhaustion. Trust me, just breathing for a while could be difficult. Everyone will understand. (hug)

So sorry to hear this. I had breast cancer, too, and it took me a while to get back into hiking. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Stay positive!

There are so many of us survivors. Recovery takes a toll. It does take a while to get to "normal" and normal might be different. Battling and healing take an enormous amount of time and energy.

Hugs to you and your family. Wish we could come out to your gathering and offer our support in person, but we're on the wrong side of the metroplex and I don't like driving at night. We'll be cheering you on in spirit and hope our paths will cross at some point in the future.

You are in my thoughts and prayers. I have enjoyed finding your boxes over the years.
It was very obvious that you put a lot of thought and planning into your plants.

When I see or hear your name, I think of beautiful small white churches, in a small rural , quiet place. Thank you for sharing , showing me these wonderful spots through letterboxing.

Wish I could make it for your event, but Houston is a bit of a ways to make it up to the DFW area. Defiantly in our thoughts and I second Baby Bear's motion, if you need anything from the Texas Letterboxers please reach out!

Sending soothing thoughts,
NLW
