We were there last weekend and did get 12 boxes.

We did end up at the wrong Botanical Gardens and wondered why all the clues did not work!

The box that was supposed to be on a car wasn't because it had been pulled. Oh, the car wasn't was where it was supposed to be either. We stumbled upon it!

The Bonaventure Historical Society has developed a $5 tour app that would be great for both you and your noxer!
You can't go wrong anywhere in Savannah. You'll have an amazing time!

Good morning wonderful people!

We are just 2 WEEKS away from our Savannah Getaway and I am developing my bucket list, lol. The earlier suggestions are much appreciated and definitely being implemented. We love to combine full on tourist spots with the "insider" places

One thing we'd really like to do is visit the Mata Hari Speakeasy, so am looking for a way to obtain a key or password. I've contacted our lodging host, but know letterboxers are always a better bet for the "underground" so to speak.

Once we have a slightly better idea of schedule, I'll post if available for a meet--

Thanks so very much

This looks perfect! Thank you!! Bonaventure was on my must-see list and this will allow us to wander at our own pace.

Get there with plenty of time to spare. They start shooing people to the front from the back at about 4.

If you have time, have a meal at Paula Deen's restaurant. It's SOOO good! I always enjoyed just driving through the neighborhoods of Savannah. Many of the old neighborhoods have squares in the middle (Kind of hard to explain but when you see it, you'll know) and large shady oaks with Spanish moss.

Thank you, Savannah!

Had a wonderful few days in this beautiful city! Due to a bum hip and a couple tropical rains, I didn't get to box nearly as much as I wanted nor did we get to do everything on our to-do list, but I would visit again in a heartbeat!

Only one letterbox this trip, from Bonaventure --crowds, mosquitoes, humidity, hip and noxer all came into play on that. You all weren't joking about bug spray in your clues!! The tour app was worth the $5.

Again, thanks for all the suggestions. Will come back someday!

I have a custom-made stamp and a very nice container I would love to have planted in Savanah. This is in honor of The Girl Scouts. I LOVED being in scouts. I no longer live in GA and want to find the perfect spot for this plant. Prefer for it to be indoors. I wish I knew how to post a picture of the stamp and box on here. If you are willing to take this on for me, please drop me a note with your thoughts as to where you could plant it. Will send you a picture of the stamp and container via text or email. Thanks.

Thank you so much to Quite Contrary for the great letterboxing weekend! We only missed one stamp, which was a temp box that I guess was put online after we got there (we had data issues with Verizon the entire time, so I didn't see the entry until after I got home :( ). Oh well..... it was a great time! I wish I had more time to sit and chat and exchange with y'all! Maybe next time! And thanks to SHH for cooking breakfast! It was awesome as always!

For those who haven't logged Let's Fly Away yet, the clue has been revised for it's next gather, so it will not show in your Appling GA search. Please use this link to log your find:

we had data issues with Verizon the entire time...

Summer 2018 we spent a couple of days in Bowling Green, KY. Lovely town, home of the Corvette Museum. But our Verizon phone went belly-up as soon as we entered town. No calls, no data, no nuthin'. The locals told us it's not a Verizon town. Sure enough, as soon as we left town everything started working again.

Is there someone in the Cumming, Canton, Ballground area that wants to help plan an event in this area? Seems like Letterboxing has died around here and I know it will be a lot of work. Would like to get a few people to help plan and impliment an event so we can get people back to meeting each other. PM me if you are interested.
