Yeah, that DOES happen! Photopam's suggestion (good one!) is at the ruins of the Summer Palcace....but it's not a cemetery-the only cemetery I know of along the Nu'uannu Pali Hwy. is the Oahu cemetery so that was the only box I could find. Other cemeteries in the more urban areas of Hon/Waikiki are not suited for hiding at all-NO bushes or evergreen shrubs, etc and super-landscaped so the integrity of any box would easily be compromised. Morgenfamilyhunters planted the one I mentioned and I found it a few years ago, so I'm not even sure if it is still there. Good luck!

I'll plan on setting up a Letterboxing Event next Spring/Summer 2017. There's too much going on at work and on the home-front to properly plan an event this year. Stay tuned.

Have any of you gone to the North Shore is search of my HEKI box at their store? It was planted early March and no finders yet. Just trying to figure out what the problem is.

Thanks.

Visiting May 2017

Aloha, I'll be staying at Waikiki beach next May for 10 days. I will be with three sisters but I am the only boxer. Was wondering if there's a boxer nearby that would like to become "pen-pals", remember those?, and meet up with me for some boxing or grab an exchange. I also want to hike Diamond Head, my sisters can't do that. I thought if we became pen pals we wouldn't be total strangers if and when we get to meet. Thanks,

I have replaced MANO and The Legend of the Owl in totally new locations. I also planted To the Beach We Go. Hawaiian Hibiscus has had maintenance with a replacement also.

Get us a condo right on Waikiki Beach within walking distance of the zoo and Diamondhead. Of course I'm a walker and a hiker so I think everything is within walking distance.

THen you don't need to rent a car! If you want to go somewhere and you don't want to walk, the Bus will take you all around the island....you may know that because you may have been there before, but just in case-since you have a place in Waikiki and the traffic is so crazy in the Hon/Waikiki area, it's better NOT to have a car, so we have been told-but we stay on the leeward side near Kapolei and rent a car so we can get to places away from the city life...we get enough of that being from the Chicago area! When are you going? We won't be back again until 2018.

I was there May of last year and met 2 of the 3 boxers that lived there. One has moved to the mainland, and the other 2 don’t participate much anymore, say about zero. But, I did plant at Waikiki Beach, maybe you could check on it.

Hey....why did you change your name? How are you doing?
Meeting up would have been great but my family is in the process of moving to Maui.....so that will be my new stomping grounds for Hawaii visits.

Sue and I are cruising HI with 10 other letterboxers May 5 to 12. After that, we’ll be on Oahu for over a week with two other boxers, TsukiAmes Ames and Jai. We’d love to meet somewhere for coffee, lunch or a meal with any local letterboxers.

Let us know if you’re available from Sunday, May 13 to Sunday, May 20.
Thanks,

Mark Pepe

I heard there is a volcano eruption due and you should be ready to move quickly. Did not catch which island . . . but I suggest you turn on the news!
Meanwhile it is 93 degrees back here in DE and no coastal breeze~
Stay safe and box on.

Hello from the East Coast! I will be in Honolulu on November 12th & 13th. I have scouted out a few boxes online, but would also like to exchange a couple of HH at a hostel. Does anyone know of an active hostel within 20 miles of Honolulu?
Thanks, A Okay
