I’m headed to Indpls.next month, my hometown.
Look up Crown Hill Cemetery, any of them are fun to find.
I will be replacing my Benjamin Harrison plant at C.H.C. while I’m there. Have a fun time.

Just looked up the forecast, and it's supposed to rain. That's a big nope from me! Guess I'll have to come down again some other time to hit Crown Hill.

I was going to suggest the Benjamin Harrison one, but I guess maybe not. :( It was a good reason to find the cemetery's high point. The view there is very nice. I think there are still a couple others in that general area.

I would second the Paddle Your Own Canoe. The Cindarella selfie is also particularly fun. There is a nice mix of boxes to be found. There are several that don't give the exact section where they are found so you have to work a little harder, but they're good finds if you manage to figure them out.

If you plan another trip, I may be available to serve as a navigator around town.

Stay flexible--the rain could come earlier, later or not at all....

Love the crazy weather

I had a couple people tell me that the bushes where the Benjamin box was planted had Abeen cut way back. I know some of the groundskeeper there know the boxes are there throughout the cemetery and usually don’t bother them. Benjamin may have accidentally been cut in half or something. But I will replace it.
Thank you so much for going to recommend my box to someone, that makes me feel good that I put it in a place that you enjoyed.

Upcoming trip... seeking boxes & cool spots
Board: State: Indiana
Mar 17, 2019 5:54pm
Any off the beaten path interesting spots (odd, interesting, unique etc...)
In southeastern Indiana?
Also looking for "do not miss" boxes.

Will be visiting northern Kentucky (Creation museum) & will only have a day of rambling. We love to go junking/antiquing, photography, fun interesting spots for young teens etc...
Any suggestions are appreciated!

Anyone else heading out tomorrow? The weather is supposed to be much nicer -- less humid and cooler.

We are going to hunt for some very old plants and "never found" boxes. My plates are quite remarkable, so you might find us.

Enjoy the weekend!

A couple of years ago I was in Indianapolis. Someone gave me a beautiful stamp of Bobby Kennedy. I have been waiting for the perfect spot to plant it. Next week I will be in Washington DC and thought what a perfect place to plant. Now, I cannot find the piece of paper that had the carvers name on it. I want to give him credit. Please help.

If you got the stamp from TAP it was probably me.

Geez, more than a couple of years, I was there in October, 2014. Just sent TAP an email. Anyway, if it is yours, I will give you credit. Love the stamp. I wanted to find the perfect spot for it. Las Vegas, NV is not the spot. If I knew how to put a picture on here I would.

Thank you for all the encouraging messages :) <3
I plan to check on all the boxes at Lincoln SP in two weeks while my kids are on fall break. I have been getting reports about missing boxes. I may move things around, be sure to double check the clues if you head that way in a few weeks.
Thank you for a great Four Seasons Event

It was an enjoyable way to spend a beautiful fall day with the trees in full color. Everything was very well organized and top notch. The clues were very clear, the food was tasty, and the fellowship is always fun. A special thanks goes to the organizers and to all the carvers.
