It was a wonderful event! So glad we were able to camp and spend even more time with our northern friends too!
Visiting Maryland

Old Blue and I are visiting from California and wonder if anyone wants to meet up for an exchange. We will be in the Baltimore area all day Monday, and Tuesday, May 21 and 22. I know it’s short notice but if anyone’s available, let us know.

I’m hoping someone is home planting boxes. I’m away in Virginia adding to their count. It would be great to come home to some new boxes to find.

I have three or four to plant, but did not get it done this week like I'd hoped. Going to try to get it done in the next couple weeks.

Restaurant Recommendations

Hello, I have been asked to find a nice restaurant anywhere between Washington DC and Baltimore but preferably closer to Washington. My stepdaughter from Hawaii is attending a convention and wants to meet us for dinner one evening. We are looking for a nice restaurant but not a fine dining place. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

What type of food? There are SOOO many options. And, do want to stay on a route between DC and Baltimore....or can you veer a little west of the 95 corridor?

We are driving down from Reading, PA and will be on 95 between Baltimore and Washington. I am not exactly sure where in Washington my step daughter will be but she will have a car and will meet us. So veering a little west would probably be ok.

As for food, I have a meat and potatoes man, no ethnic foods except possibly Mexican, unfortunately. Edited to add, he just said seafood would also be good.

For a real Baltimore experience, Timbuktu. Crab cakes are renown. But also, steak, chicken, etc. Not in Baltimore, but off 95 near airport.

Wow! Sounds perfect! We checked out the website and as soon as we verify that she will have a car, I will be making reservations. Thank you!

Is it a box?

I did a maintenance run on some of my boxes today (fabulous day to be out!). While checking on this series in Magruder Branch Stream Valley Park in Damascus: https://www.atlasquest.com/boxes/clue/?boxId=270402

...I found a torn gallon Zip-Lok at the side of a trail containing the remains of a mostly rotted spiral-bound sketchbook, a pen, and a store-bought stamp of a cardinal. All the paper was filthy mush, but the bag seems to be of fairly recent vintage. Can anyone identify this? I will administer CPR and replant or return it to the owner if it is an actual letterbox. At the moment, it’s just trash found on the trail. I looked on LBNA and AQ but could not match this with a box.

Since it had a store bought stamp, it may be a geocache letterbox hybrid. You could check the geocache website to see if it's listed there.

Any active boxers in the Frederick, MD area? I just moved here from WV Eastern panhandle (so not that far, really). 🙂

It doesn't seem that there are many active in and around Frederick. We are about 30 minutes away, but we are in Frederick all the time. Our youngest go to school there. A couple others live within striking distance. Wish there was more activity in the Frederick area. Glad to be "neighbors" now.
New Personal Traveler

Hello, I am new to Atlas Quest's "Boards," so I don't know how they work, but I just wanted to share that, for people in/near Frederick County, I have a new Personal Traveler that I am hoping somebody will find! Kind of a puzzle to get it, but I don't think it's TOO hard, if you use your resources. Link to get to it is here: https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.php?boxId=308122

Best of luck if you do make an attempt to get it, hopefully this is the right place to share!?

It's only available for people who can come get it in Frederick. While it is a personal traveler, it does have a clue, and technically a plant location. Sorry! Besides, yeah, don't have a way to get to Iowa! LOL!

I might be able to get down to Frederick with a large carton. 🤫 You’d have to pay the shipping, though.

Don’t worry, I’ll poke air holes in it

Hey, what are people's thoughts on (if I were to find time) me creating a three or four-box series in a park dedicated to one of my favorite games. (Don't ask what game, it would be a surprise). Older game, but some letterboxes may be familiar with it...

I don't think I'll be looking for it any time soon since I'm in a different state, but I think people always LOVE a new box, or several! People seem to be pretty open-minded about subject matter, so I say go with what makes you happy and don't worry about it.

Good luck and have fun!!

Hey, thanks Hiking Vikings for finding my PT! I do have one last question though, for you or anyone who sees this. I don't know when I'll have time to create my new series, but I definitely want to. I was looking at parks and forests nearby, and I was wondering if anyone had any good location ideas. My thoughts were at the New Market Community Park which isn't too far from me, but I was wondering if anyone else had thoughts. Figured putting at the park may interest some letterboxers to check out downtown New Market, but if anyone has a better idea I would LOVE to know!!!

Thanks,
-The Great Trail Ninja

With a lot of the nearby letterboxes being found by almost (if not all) of the local 'boxers, I figure I want to do a new plant to give letterboxers wanting a new find (without traveling far) a new chance for a letterboxing adventure. Plus, I am really getting to enjoy planting and carving stamps as well! I am open to ideas for locations, preferences, etc from all boxers who would want to find this series, who are in/near the Frederick County area!

Let me know what y'all are thinking,

Okey dokey, I'll probably stick with that location then... though, hey! If you ever pass through PA, I have a letterbox that may or may not still be there. Only my family has found it, it might not even be there, but let me know if you're ever in/near Pocono Lake, PA!
