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!

We will be visiting at the end of March. Going to see Mickey. I'm looking to letterbox on one of our days away from the parks. Any suggestions on boxes we should definitely look for? Thanks!

I have been told that Antisocial Veggie's boxes in Ormond Beach are an experience. I am planning a weekend trip to find these myself in the near future.

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.

Where can I get Sistema boxes inexpensively down here? I'm on the lookout for all new stores, since all of the places I used to shop up north haven't made it to FL yet.

Thanks!

It is what a lot of people use down here. They’re not bad. I still like lock n lock best but it’s very hard to find. All of my spare lock n locks are in storage so I’m trying to find something that I can use until I can get those out of storage.

We occasionally find sales on them at Aldi or Meijer stores if those stores are available to you.

Ok so while I was out letterboxing today, I stopped by Ollie’s in Eustis to get the Sistema boxes they had on sale. However, I ended up finding something that may be just as good for less $! They look like Lock n Locks but are about $1.25 each! The brand name is PAC-it Fresh. They look sturdy and seem to stay closed and locked very well (so far). Can’t wait to paint these up and try them out in the wild!

I was very excited to see a huge lot of Sistema boxes on craigslist for cheapcheapcheap but it was the microwave ones with the vent on the top, no good for boxing.

Unfortunately, some of what makes these boxes good or bad is not readily visible. I used some cheap knockoffs for a while because they tested great, didn't leak when submerged in the bathtub, etc. But the problems arose after they had been in the field for a couple of years when the blue rubber gasket in the groove crumbled and fell out in chunks. Apparently blue silicone costs more than cheap blue rubber.

We long recommended Lock 'N Locks *by name* because long experience had shown them to be very reliable. But they're pretty hard to find any more, so we're in the process of settling on some other brands. The Sistema containers look good so far, but I dunno if they've been in use long enough to know for sure.

There’s a few of us scattered between western palm beach (southern oracle), Broward (not sure who’s still active, but Ms Cherry is there) Dade (me).

We’re pretty thin here in south Florida. :(

Thank you for your responses. I told her that the area is kind of scarce for letterboxers, so having a new player in the area could be a welcome thing. 😃
