Maybe. I did find one of my Old School letterboxes that still needs to be planted.

Thanks. Yeah, it kinda added to the lack of finding any boxes.

You know, I remembered your post a few weeks ago as I saw it on the group. So that was one of the first thoughts to mind was that you were correct. =)

Does anyone else do this?

When heading to an event, if I have time, I will sometimes look at the traditional plants by the boxers headed to the event to see if any are PLANET EARTH or UNITED STATES locations on their letterboxes. When I look at the clue, often they are bonus boxes or clues that are specific to another event. But sometimes I've unearthed a letterbox that will be hidden somewhere at the event.

I'm headed to the LL Bean event this weekend and cannot possibly do this with all the letterboxers attending, but it's a bit of fun on a cold night.

That's a good idea... maybe just search the boxers from that area?

I think that's definitely a good idea. But I happened to find a couple of Planet Earth boxes by a couple of different letterboxers who are traveling to the event and the boxes travel with the boxers. The clues gave a description of what to look for, so I'm going to be on the lookout for them. Who knows? I may or may not have time.

Last summer when I traveled to Ohio, I found a couple of additional boxes because of sneaky clue listings. Loved it when they were there!

Oh...my...goodness! Just when I thought I had planned all the letterboxes that I could get at this event outside of the actual boxes planted FOR the event, you had to introduce me to this idea!!! What to do, what to do....I only have two days to go through all 200+ attendees to find their hidden secrets.

Thanks....I think.

How do I list this kind of stamp. I have a really cool one I’ve been taking with me as a PT but it’s too time-consuming sometimes. Especially at certain events depending on how busy they are to carry it around and give it to people. If I could just plant it when I get there and pick it up before I leave I think more people could get it but I’m not sure how to list it.

I've seen people listing traditional stamps for events with the location of the event in the listing. Then the clue says, "Clues to be posted at event." Then when you get to the event, you could hide the box, write the clues, and post them on a bulletin board or whatever in the main event area.

I think that's what you are hoping to do?

I do what Angel Winks just said. There's a couple different ways to do it, depending on how you want to plant it... if it has clues or not.

You can either make it a traveling event box and call it a "hidden in plain sight" or "table top box", and just add a new event each time you move it. For these, you wouldn't have clues. Just leave it in the gathering room either out in the open or 'hidden in plain sight'.

Or, you can make it a temporary traditional box with Word of Mouth clues. For this, you can change the physical location of the box each time so it will show up in searches for that area. Then in the clues, just type available at whatever event and list the clues or state WOM clues available then. After the event, change status to unavailable.

OMG! You guys are CRAZY! Once I start listing boxes tomorrow and your printer bursts into flames - you'll stop printing :)

There over 200 just the night of the event - you'll get PLENTY of ink :)

Did anyone lose red ink at the event....reason I ask is this morning, I wore the same boots that I wore to the event and walking down my icy driveway I noticed a red stain on the ice every few feet....after investigating and realizing it was not from an animal or me, I found the bottom of my boot was the issue.
hmmmm took a lot of wiping in the grass and paper towel to get the ink from my shoe.
who knows how long it was there....or what mess I left behind.
gave me a fright.

Hi there, Michigan Letterboxing Community,

Just checking in...anyone hoping to do some Michigan letterboxing this summer? I'm just curious who our active letterboxers are.

I'll start: LaLaBirds and I plan to get BaliWho's latest plants in Charlotte in a couple of weeks. We are hoping for temperatures in the 50s by that point. In the meantime, I've been sneaking out for a moment here and there trying to replant letterboxes that I've recarved. And, I'll be heading to Familyof6's April event in Saugatuck!

Okay...looking forward to hearing from whomever is on this board!

TrailMark and are haven’t had much opportunity for boxing since Live and Breathe in Texas (I’m not even sure if I finished recording finds from there). We are hoping to do some boxing on the west side of the state later this week. Planning to attend April event but I’m not sure that I will be prepared for whatever Andrew is cooking up!

There's a letterboxing event in Ohio at the end of April that I've been looking at, I signed up for that before Fo6's, and they are both equivalent distances from me, so I still don't know which one to go to.

Another event in Ohio in June, that I try not to miss. it's every other year.
There's also a set of stamps (300 or so, YIKES) that have been promised to me, I will use them to host an event. I'm waiting to get the stamps to plan.
But that will most likely be later in the summer or early fall.

We have been looking for warm weather we have a few spots around us we want to check out to hide some new stamps I carved over the winter...we also want to get some we planeted a while back and replant them someplace different.
We signed up for both events in april but we have leaned more towards the one here in michigan.... Although we are not sure we fully understand it we are really looking forward to it.
Someone said that saginaw had quite a bit thats one we would like to go find soon...
is there a lot in Charlotte???

I'm active. I enjoy letterboxing year round. Got out this weekend to find a couple in Plymouth, MI.

Looking forward to a trip with 4Eyes at the end of the month to celebrate our respective AQ-versaries (my 11th and her 9th.) This is the 4th time we'll be doing that and it's always a lot of fun. Think we're going to try to plant a couple this time.

I just signed up for the Saugatuck event. Disney vs. serial killers? It's a no-brainer.

And I'm also looking forward to an epic letterboxing jaunt over the Memorial Day weekend with three fellow boxing fanatics. You know who you are. :)

But you've never participated in an event hosted by FamilyOf6... You definitely need your brain for it.

I plan to go boxing whenever I can. I was hoping to plant some the next few weeks since I'm on break but still to much snow here. Maybe I will head south and find some cemetery boxes! Definitely going to the April event. Hoping not to have to make up to many snow days at the end of the year so I can still to the GLG event.
