Thank you thank you thank you!!

I’m so grateful for your kindness in taking the time to advise and guide me in and around the greater Atlanta area.

And for offering to hike with me.
Trying to figure out my divide and conquer plan... I printed out a bunch of clues yesterday and next is to sort and see how to figure out which areas what days... unsure of the plan at this point but a very sweet offer that is much appreciated. If I’m in the zone for a boxing buddy, I’ll let you know 😉

Happy Boxing

Theseekers1108 posted this on Facebook and would like folks here to know, as well.

Dear Friends, especially, LETTERBOXING FRIENDS ... Our friend, letterboxer Hornicorn, was in a bad car accident last week. She was struck by one vehicle and pushed into another. Miracle nobody was killed. Without gory details, nearly everything is broken from her shoulders to her toes. She had no head injuries thank Goodness. They have already reconstructed her shoulder and both of her legs. She will have several more procedures and then an extensive PT regimen. For now, she's in ICU at UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill. From there, she'll probably go to a regular room and then when they've done what they can for her, on to a Rehab Facility. We stopped by Saturday evening to visit her. She was, of course, in some pain, but all things considered, she was doing well and able to visit with us. It will be a long, hard road to recovery. Please keep her in your prayers.... and add her to prayer lists at your church. She's a very strong woman with a good, loving family, but we all know the POWER OF PRAYER will do wonders for her.

If you'd like to send her a card, contact theseekers1108 via a message and she can get you the address. THANK YOU! HUGS

We have a fair number in our immediate family and we give birthday cards to each other in person. I save the envelopes that haven't had the flaps completely glued down and are re-usable. Even if there's a name written on the front, that can be covered up with a label.
almost time!

The locations should be released this week and we'll be able to start planning challenge hikes. I hope a lot of them are on blue trails now that I'm trying to figure out the miles I've hiked on blue trails. If anyone wants to carve a stamp for me to plant I'm more than happy to plant it! A thank you shout out to KitKat for offering to manage the tracker again. I agree with the comments from last year about planting early so we can get a jump on it before the high heat of summer. Maybe an April 15th plant by date? March 30?

For me, it really depends on the stamp.. if it's a fairly simple stamp, I usually can finish in an hour or so.. any longer and I usually stop for a while.. (I've broken a couple of fingers in the past) because I'll start making multiple mistakes if I don't..

I cannot find my original post, so I am reposting rather than updating. If anybody would like to carve a stamp or a few for a homeschool, letterboxing education event, please see the tracker. We only need seven more. Thank you!

Hi, RDHG,

Since I'm a retired homeschool mom (4 graduates), I would especially love to help with this project. It was through a fellow homeschooler that I first learned about LBing! If still needed, I'll take Ben the Dog. Any kind of dog will do? And I'll try Ceclia the Toucan, too. Also, I recognize your name (and Super Hedge Hoggie, too) so I think you're in NC as I am. I do not see on your post where you want the stamp mailed. And is your event on 3/7? Or is that the deadline to get it to you?
