Did you get to see the parent eagles?

The nest is visible from the parking lot high up in a pine tree. We were hoping to see Mom and Dad make their switch but it didn't happen while we were there. It was interesting to see the nest and tour the campus. We found a few Rome boxes and left one.

Please think of the older people in GA

I think we need to keep everyone in mind. I love a hike but admit to struggling more and more as my knee deteriorates. We also have some physically challenged boxers......so to keep everyone happy, we try to plant a mix of long and short......

I'd like all new boxes to be planted within 50 miles of my house. That gives you 5 states to choose from and a lot of waterfalls. Go.

I count only four, unless Virginia is closer than 50 miles away.

I know that for the ones that have no icon, I read the clue carefully so I can gauge how much energy I'll need or if the box is for me.

What are you talking about? Tiggers have unlimited energy! Or at least that's what I assumed because all I've ever heard about tigers are that their tops are made out of rubber, their bottoms are made out of springs. They're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy-Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!

Well, with what tigs is going through, that's something that will take the bounce out of anyone, including a tigger. At least for now anyway. High hopes!!! ;)

I have seen your stamp in a lot of boxes on our trip as we are on our way to Philadelphia. Visited Gettysburg and Dillsbury today. Had lunch with Paula (Red Cruzsader) at Wolfe's diner and enjoyed so much seeing her talents at carving.

we're on our way BACK to Gettysburg today!! i hope you enjoy Philly; it's where i was born (not where i'm from, mind, but that's the fault of the USNavy).

and MiSs C: i have chronic Lyme. When i'm in a flair, i have the energy of a sloth. My joints swell up and everything gets stiff and sore. If i'm fine, i can hike for 12-15 miles. If i'm not, 3 miles is a LOT.

WATCH OUT FOR TICKS.

Hey everyone,

I was just toodling around AQ looking at Sandy Springs clues. I was doing some location research for the World Peace Cafe and discovered that the establishment closed it's doors in August 2013. I'm guessing the stamp is no longer accessible.

Do the owners live in the area? I can't remember. Did you try emailing them? Even though they haven't been on in awhile, they might have their AQmail forwarded.

...but the clue says nothing about it being inside.

ALMOST got that box one day. I remember a special young boxer getting car sick and the restaurant was not yet open. And there was a big festival in the parking lot. And there was some crisis at work that I had to work through with staff over the phone.

A feeble yet memorable attempt. Never went back.

OK, so it was inside. Since it was stairs, and I had not been there, it wasn't obvious to me from reading. However, that also doesn't mean it is gone, just not accessible now unless there is a new business there. Maybe someone should go check. :)

I'm "old" and don't walk so well so I only go after those boxes that are drive-bys. Also, those are the kind I plant, wherever I am. So long as you aren't going after thousands and thousands of boxes, there are plenty of drive-bys.

Well, I got a stamp planted. :) I had intended to do a whole series, but I still have two more to carve on that, so soon. It felt good to be out there planting a little something again. Thanks DeeCee for the motivation!

Thanks. :) I'm glad to hear someone say that even though I royally messed up the clues and Beast kept walking off. Lol. The one I planted today was a stamp I got a while back from Don't Panic. I'm hoping to get the last two for the new series carved this next week.

If you ever wondered. RSINT = random stamps in the woods. I couldn't think of a good name. ;)

I'll have to see if yours is near me. Now that I can get out again, maybe I can find it.

I am going to the TN event up at Piney Campground at the Land Between the Lakes. If anyone has any kind of stamps just sitting around that they would like planted in that area.....I'd be happy to take them and plant away. There will also be Temp boxes so if you have one that likes to travel, I will be happy to take and return those as well!
