Any further plans on this? I'm happy to help with some carving if given sufficiently advanced notice on subject/theme ;)

Thanks!

In case you didn't happen to see it, I have a new (and, to my knowledge, unique) box planted. Give it a try!

Is it set up as an automatic response? Do we need to have a battery pack on us?

There is a box down south that uses phone and e-mail. You have to send in the correct answer to get the next clue. My phone nearly ran out of power trying to find the boxes in the series.

That was a fun distraction amidst my remodeling mess even though I'll probably never get to CA.

Event Issue/Concerns~Oh, that Darn Cat

So, I have be struggling with this year's event.

The escape room was sooooo much fun and it was a great theme. And it was a type of event that I had wanted to do for some time . . . which brings me to this year's event.

I really, really, really want to do a multi-day "camp". The problem for me and my crew is location. Location, location, location. It would be better for my crew and co conspirators to host this type of event in "our own backyard".... as in Lassen County.

Lassen County is just ripe for dozens of plants we can do for the event theme.

The problem of course for the attendees is Location, location, location. This is why we normally eye Reno for the events because it is closer and it is a big city and it has casinos and great food. But Reno will not work for all of the activities we have planned for "camp".

Now, one of the cool things about where we would like to host this "camp" is actually free to camp in and RV camp in. It's totally free. (But for RVs, there is no sewage dumping, though.) Hotel camping, though, is not free.

But if no one comes, then that would be super bad. (and a little hurtful)

So, that's the problem.

Using the theme, we have soooo many awesome ideas, like a smore's gathering, ghost stories telling, potlucks, a Beast in the Woods mystery, an escape room-that is separate from The Beast in the Woods, maybe a talent show, a really fun raffle . . .

It would be 2.5 days of camp related activities and letterboxing.

The event would start on Friday, go through Saturday and end Sunday afternoon. You don't have to do the "camp" activities, if you just want to letterbox the entire weekend. You would decide.

But I don't know what kinda of interest this would garnish. Now, I know I haven't said the actual theme, but it's a great one!

And just an FYI, I actually like the idea of the event starting off on Friday the 13th of September but we have also been eyeing the last weekend too.

So.... feedback, please! The more the merrier. Anyone who has ever attendant a Cat and Bird Production KNOWS my events have a cast and crew that are driven to having an AWESOME event.

We'd happily go anywhere for one of yours and Funnymingo's event.....trouble is it's a BUSY year at work so it just depends on if we're in this country then

Having said that, I don't camp.....but I DO hotel camp!!

LA is huge....where exactly are you staying/working. That can help us narrow down where you will be and we can better recommend boxes to find etc.

If you are downtown, I can highly recommend the Los Angeles Public Library, I just read a book about it (Library Book by Susan Orlean) and there are letterboxes there also....the area is also where the Black Dahlia was last seen, so you can visit those sites (and there are letterboxes) , I also recommend the Angels Flight funicular in downtown LA. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angels_Flight
