I went to check on one of my oldest letterboxes from 2004 today. Lo and behold, it was still there. It’s called Happy Snail, but I don’t think he’s very happy anymore because his head is gone. It looks like a critter nibbled at it at some point. I pulled the letterbox today and will be re-planting it when I do some maintenance. Just thought it was exciting to know that it has been in place for 14 years and wanted to share. Have a great evening!

Midwest Letterboxing Event (MLE) Like our own area GLG, maybe in April and host it at different state parks like they do at Homerdoodle...?

Just some thoughts :)

Some of you Hoosier (and maybe Buckeye) boxers may have noticed that lately, I've been posting boxes without the clues, stating that they are coming soon. That happened recently with a series called Found in the Woods. Just so's ya know, the boxes are hidden and the clues are posted now. Just giving you a heads-up! Enjoy!

Nov 17, 2018: Power Plant Challenge
Calling all letterboxers: It's time to plant more boxes!

On the looooong ride back from L&B, fellow boxers and I were discussing the future of letterboxing in North Carolina and decided:
1. We want to be able to find more letterboxes in NC
and
2. Newer letterboxers would be attracted to letterboxing if they don't strike out on their first few searches due to older MIA boxes

Therefore - we have created a Power Plant challenge! We challenge all letterboxers to plant 10 traditional boxes in the next six months. Imagine - if even 10 boxers accepted the challenge - that would be 100 new boxes. If 40 boxers did it, 400 new boxes in the state for everyone to enjoy! Even if planting is not your favorite part of letterboxing - the only way to get new boxes (and boxers) is to plant - so let's all plant together!

~ Of course, there are prizes ~
Participants who plant at least ten traditional permanent plants between Nov. 1 and April 30 will receive a Power Planter Patch.
Participants who plant at least 50 traditional permanent plants between Nov. 1 and April 30 will receive a Power Planter Path tag.
There will be special recognition and a grand prize (TBD) for the participant who plants the most traditional permanent plants during this six month period.

~ Quality is important ~
While this is a planting challenge, it's important to still think through your permanent plant - don't just toss boxes out and hope for the best. Plant boxes in locations you would be able to check on, are safe from muggle meddling, and will hopefully be around for quite a while. Drive by, long hike, easy clue, challenging puzzle - and all shapes and sizes of letterboxes in between - those details are up to you. You could do a series or individual boxes. Since the goal is to increase our permanent plants in the state, these boxes should be permanent, not temporary or just for events.

~ Other details: boxers and boxes everwhere are welcome!
Anyone can participate - even boxers in other states
You can plant anywhere - even other states (letterboxing while traveling is a grand adventure)!

~ OK - you're IN - how to participate:
1. Send me an AQ message to let me know you want to participate! You can contact me at any time during our six month challenge.
2. Plant at least ten boxes (or way more) over the next six months (Nov. 1 through April 30, 2019).
3. We will recognize all participants at the big GeekFest event in Raleigh at the start of May. You do not need to be present to participate (but we know you want to come to this huge event). We will share all the participants who qualify for the patch and pathtag, and announce the grand prize winner. If you are not able to attend GeekFest, we will send you your patch/path tag through snailmail.

Let me know if you have any questions, and plant on, NC! (Super Hedge Hoggie)

This is cool. And I definitely want to dive into my first year of letterboxing, but! In Alaska I don't know if I'll be able to get out for 10 boxes by the deadline. I might have to wait to start till then. 😞 but I can always have personal goals for the summer.

Hi all!

I'm going to be venturing down to Indy this Saturday to go to the Star Trek exhibit at the Children's Museum. (Raise your hand if you're not surprised.) I noticed that the museum is less than 2 miles from Crown Hill. I'd like to pick up a few boxes there if I can, but I'm not sure of the conditions - snow, ice, mud, etc. Any insight about that, and also any recommended boxes, would be appreciated.

I have found just about everything you can find there, less a few newer ones. Hopefully you will have a map and box locations with sections plotted ahead of time. My boxes are retired now. I had to remove My Sweet Daddy after a tornado or strong winds took down the tall tree hiding it. Most of the boxes can be drive-by's. Haven't seen the forecast for Saturday, but take hiking boots or something to keep your feet dry.

I'm partial to my retired boxes, but one that stands out in my mind not to miss is the Paddle Your Own Canoe. I'lll look over the rest later.

From the Children's Museum, I would suggest entering the Cemetery from the 34th Street entrance. There are painted lines on the roads to follow if you get lost, provided that they aren't snow covered. If you don't have a map, you can pick one up in the main office (north entrance, off 38th St.)

You are likely to encounter deer at anytime, especially in the area around Dillinger.
