I boxed in St. Paul last year. Anything by twofreetimers and Dartmoor Dreamer are always treasures to be found.

Aw shucks....
We have great carvers here in Minne-snow-ta: Tie Dye Sue, hartwolfzell, estella & skootch, Traveling Queen of Hearts....
Remember that it very likely cold here in November, so look for letterbox clues that mention hanging pouches or "do not un-pin" (so the box is not frozen to/in the ground).

According to my local newspaper, Lake Elmo Park reserve is going to undergo $2.5 million improvements in the fall of 2019.

My letterboxes at that park will be retrieved and retired in August.
If you want to go with me for a day of boxing/retrieving/retiring. I'll make the day into an event!

Sounds like a great time!! Will watch for any updates. That park is HUGE and has a fair amount of GCs too, so I wonder what will happen to those as well.

What is are the developments going to consist of???

It is with a bit of sadness that I report another letterbox gone, retired, sent to the wood chipper.

I'll update the clues. The first box is in great condition and has not had a finder since hartwolfzell was there in the spring of 2013. Since the hiding spot for the second box is gone, I will not be re-carving that particular stamp.

At least some people had the good fortune to find the second box?? Some of my internationals seem to have gone missing without AQ finders and that makes me sad.......

Happy 4th of July.

I enclosed an ink pad with the stamp in burgundy for you to use.

Also the puzzle clue for another box in the yard is in the mailbox. Feel free to sit on the deck while putting it together.

When you get to the correct location ... I forget how many driveways north of the Bait Shop .... put together the name of the Box of the Month planter and look for something obvious (when you see it, you'll know!)

Owlet was one of my favorite clues.

If you want to check out letterboxing and are in the Brainard/Baxter area this weekend, head over to Crow Wing State Park Saturday August 24th.
Class starts at 10am in the picnic shelter. Everything will be provided and there will be 20+ stamps to find. (If you were at the GLG in June you will already have these stamps)
I must love you so much...

Hi!
skootch and I went out to scope the state forest for our summer event. It's hilly, at least the part we were in.

I managed to faceplant into a marsh/bog that someone left so inconsiderately in the middle of the path. skootch was following me, and I ended up on the other side, after sinking to mid-thigh and getting my L boot stuck in the mud, finding sticks, logs and branches to throw into the goo, so skootch could get minimally wet, getting over to the other side.

We ended up hitting the nearest burgh to get clean dry clothes, lame adventure, but we can mark that fun stuff on a map, so y'all can avoid it, next year.

It is here, and in its place. I removed the red log book, so it is just the stamp and log book that it is traveling with.
I have no idea where my letterboxing stuff currently is, I am buried in tie dye.
I also listed October’s box, now that it has been mailed and we are in November.
I am here, just super busy.
