Box of the Month for December
Board: State: Florida
Dec 18, 2018 1:27pm
Just a reminder that December's Box of the Month is out and since it got a late start this month, we will be keeping it until January 2nd, so you will have all through the holiday break to get it.

Also, Santa Mickey will be out until January 2nd, and the NEW 2019 BOTM will be available starting January 1st!

So that means, if you want all three at once, you can stop by on New Year's ;-)

FYI that the January Box of the Month will only be out for another 10 days or so. Hope you will be able to come out and get this great stamp before it heads on it's journey! Also, Santa Mickey has an extended stay as well, and will be out until the January BOTM retires.

Hope to see you soon!

Disney question

Is there still a letterboxer who works in the Christmas shop at Disney Magic Kingdom? I met her there once, but I can't remember her name. I'll be at Disney next month and thought I'd look her up if she still works there.

Best easy hike near Orlando?

In my opinion, as a part time Florida hiker and an almost full time Pennsylvania hiker, all hikes in Florida are much easier than other areas because they are mostly level walks with no rocks in the trails (big time issue here in PA) although there are often roots in the trails. We just completed a hike which led to two boxes in Moss Park which is in Orlando. The walk was lovely and the boxes were terrific.

If you can get to any of Antisocial Veggie's boxes, you will be in for a very unique treat. She is probably the most creative boxer out of the almost 8000 boxes I have found. She is not in Orlando but can be rather easily reached with a drive up I95.

And, as a plug for my own boxes, I just planted 23 new boxes in Central Florida, mostly drivebys and short walks, including several on Merritt Island, home of the Ambassadors.

Yes, Sits N Knits still works at the Christmas Shop, but it's not in the Magic Kingdom. It's at Disney Springs.

I agree with Janila. Most of the hikes here are short, and the trails are not hard at all. A few roots here and there, and a boardwalk or two, but they are not bad at all! You would get into some hills in the Clermont area, but there aren't any boxes in that town other than at the local state park. I haven't even gotten the two boxes there yet!

The Box of the Month is out each month for approximately three weeks, about six to eight miles from World Drive. And it's a driveby..... AND you can exchange with me if you let me know when you're coming to the box!

It's a new stamp each month too! New stamp, new find!

Hint, hint ;-)

Are you thinking of the Ambassador Owl series in Merritt Island?

If so and you are headed to Brevard County there is Sams House Pine Island in Merritt Island and also the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary in Titusville.

Both offer either short or long hikes, depending on what you want to make of them as their are many trail heads/loops/spurs options so you are not stuck with hike in/hike out only trail.

Enchanted Forest is a combination of paved/dirt/sandy trails and frankly is one of my favorite park/trails. You could easily do a short hike here and stay on a paved trail that is much kinder to the knees than a sandy trail.

Robin Hood in Ocala National Forest Event
Board: State: Florida
Mar 4, 2019 7:52am
Thread
As Three FLAmigo's and I have been finishing up all of the details for the Robin Hood in Ocala National Forest Event being held on Saturday, March 9, we realized that we have received so many stamps from fellow letterboxers that we are expanding our plantings outside of the original planned resort area. And since there will now be many boxes on the local trails in addition to those in the resort, we realized that we can accomodate more than the original 25 attendees. So, if the fact that we had reached our limit had stopped you from signing up previously, please feel free to sign up now. The weather is looking good, the stamps are terrific and we welcome additional people.

Just one request, if you would like to come, please sign up, drop ins won't be admitted. The meeting spot for the event is in a private resort and we will need to know who is attending ahead of time so we can inform the guards that you will be a guest otherwise, you will not be able to enter.

Thanks, and hope to see you Saturday!

Today is not looking too shabby either so fixin to go out and hit the trail to plant just a couple more boxes...

Happy Boxing!

Any box by Janila or ThreeFLAmigos is good! Also, I have a box of the month box, but it may be gone by the time you get here. I only have one other box planted so far in Florida which is in Kissimmee.
