Need Planting Help

I am cleaning out my closets and as much as I’d like to pretend I’m going to start planting boxes again... I don’t think it’s happening. So, I have quite a few stamps, both singles and series/groups that I’m asking for help in planting. I will mail them to you, you plant wherever you want, most are already named, some are not. All sizes. Please, message me with your address and how many stamps you like and I will mail them to you. All I ask is for carving credit when you plant ☺️
I appreciate any help you can give,

Huge huge kudos to Captain Slick Kitty and all her helpers. This event was worth every minute of our 8 hour, well 20 after boxing, drive. The stamps were amazing, the "window dressing" carefully thought out, and the events mind blowing. Every single detail was presented in s way that made the weekend blow our minds. Thank you thank you thank you. We look forward to the next one.

Thoughts on my 10th event???? OMG! Have I done 9 already?

Thoughts on my 10th event????

OMG!

Have I done 9 already?

Damn, it seems like just yesterday I hosted the most controversial event of them all!!! Not to mention it was my first event.

Anyhoooooooooooooooo

I have several ideas brewing, and I would like some feed back.
The top running options are:
1) With the permission and grace of the Mystery Machine: Oregon Trail: The Doomed Donner Party Event. Cannibalism, it’s starving thing.
2) A Murder Mystery. This would be similar to the Beast in the Woods event, where you collect evidence and piece together the crime. This event would also encourage cooperation and sharing information with other teams. I really love my secret theme for this idea. It would be great for Halloween.
3) A CLUE theme event. This one would entail cards. It would also encourage cooperation of all attendees though that’s optional and a possible escape room. I also super love the secret theme for this event.

Then there’s LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION:
If it’s the Doomed Donner Party, obviously close to Tahoe/Truckee area.
But if not, I would have to really consider other options, especially it was an escape room. So, Reno would be the likely choice.

Also, like location, timing, timing, timing is everything:
Here in Lassen County, the weather normally rains/snows to the first week in June, which is why I don’t host events in the spring, unless it’s out of the area. Then in the fall, it turns cold November 1st, which is why my events are usually in Sept. or Oct. . But if you were here for Camp Aint Gotta Clue, it snowed on us, in SEPTEMBER! Sooooooooo……. Clearly the weather can be an issue. Normally, I do try to avoid 3 day weekends but maybe it should be considered. I don’t know. I am looking for feedback.

In all honesty, I will probably do all three of these but in what order I am not sure and receiving people’s feedback is always nice.

So, drop an email or respond to the post, whichevs, whichevs.

And after you scamper like a goat up and across the boulders in the desert heat outside of Oatman, and you just give up and sit down to rest... you just MIGHT accidentally find the location...

In search of clues in SoCal (Spadra)

Hello fellow boxers,

I am on the hunt for a set of clues, apparently only 3 sets are floating around and I have come up empty handed in my search.

The box is Spadra (#233799) in Pomona, CA. If anyone has them, or knows who has a set of them, please share the love. Contact through AQ mail to keep the secret.

Thank you all
