Stone Mountain Park does require research and foot work before you enter the park... that box that you went looking for was missing but you walk by about 10 boxes to look for it

While that is definitely true, if you are feeling overwhelmed, I would simply recommend you find what seems obvious to you and then at least you can mark some off your list. Even for people who've boxed there many times and have close to half the boxes (me - with family trailname) it is still a bear to tackle and organize clues.

PLUS, by doing so you will start recognizing landmarks and grow familiar with the territory so that other clues begin to make sense.

True that. I am not able to relate since I grew up in that park. It is kind of like having people plant boxes in my back yard over and over...no research required. Just searching. ;)

Just checking to see if there is anyone that might want to camp with me this weekend? Have reservations Fri, Sat and Sun nights at Fort Mt SP (Gwinnett Co is out on Mon). If you don't want to camp but want to box on Fri or Sat....that's good too. Have to be in Chattanooga on Sun and will come home on Monday......my daughter's soccer game is back on for Sat and they weren't so excited about going anyway so.....it's just me!

I'm going to be visiting from Thurs-Sat. I was wondering if there are any boxes I absolutely should find or what any of your personal favorites are :) Also, I tend to be super oblivious. Are there any areas with boxes that I should be more aware of safety? I've only done a tiny bit of boxing in Atlanta before but what I found was great! I cant wait to get back to it.

I hope you enjoy your visit. Decatur is a good place to start. Check out the Decatur cemetery @ 1211 Church street. A number of series are buried...er planted there. Especially look for This Is Not The Zoo (5). Sorry I can't help more. Happy Hunting!

Georgia on my Mind is fabulous! It's out of the city on the Silver Comet trail if you want a scenic walk. http://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.html?boxId=216506

Hi PJ,
I agree with the others, Decatur Cemetery is a great place to look, I have a series there. (shameless plug for "The tools She Used") Seriously, go on my plants, I have a series there and then hit boxes nearby for others there. You can google Decatur Cemetery and print out a cemetery guide with the sections labeled- it helps since you've never been there. There is a walking entrance and a driving entrance, the old section is a little rough, if you car has low clearance, walking is best. (it's also narrow) Going during the day is good, lots of walkers, so you'll have to watch for them. The weather is supposed to be absolutely beautiful while you're here, have a great time.
B Stitch?

Does anyone know how to get in touch with B Stitch? I found A Lil TLC which is a letterbox near the grave of Lefteye of TLC. The clue is a great tribute, but the box needs some TLC - the other kind.

koala,

I checked to see if the B stood for everything cuz i know another B Stitch, but the B stands for Bristol. Not the same person apparently. While i was checking, i noted that the last log in for them is April of 2012.

i'm sad there's lost belongings BUT -

WHAT A GREAT TIME!!

LOADS of great boxes, wonderful food (and hot chocolate that smelled ghoulishly good!), happy companions (Ben, you're a great TALL box collector). What more could anyone ask of an event??? karmakat and peepstone, you did a phenomenal job of our Inky Something!! ;-)

And Big Red: your home is beautiful, your daughter is lovely, and boxing with you is truly a blessing! Thank you so much for your hospitality!

Also, not our backpack but kudzu goes out to karmakat, big red and peepstone for this event. OOPS, make that kudos to(sorry but this is the south). Thank you to big red for allowing us to traipse all over your property and home. Thanks to peepstone for organizing some crazy boxers into a somewhat cohesive unit. And big thanks to karmakat for the event, the creative way the clues were done and being charming enough to talk big red into letting crazy boxers traipse all over her property. JOBS WELL DONE!! Thanks to the little folk who put up with us and I hope someone told the zombie to come in out of the cold and enjoy some hot chocolate. Many Thanks again!
