I planted Aiphid's Zombie Kitchen today. It's a really unique (and gruesome!) box. I've not used that Google docs thing before so let me know if that link doesn't work!

I have another one I did with WalkinOrange that is a really fun HIPS box that will be one day only (it's a gift for theseekers1108 to take home after that).

AWESOME CLUE !!!

I tried to take my visiting family to Southside Park today, but the playground is being re done, because of the recent flooding..... and was all roped off.
We ended up at the JAYCEE park up the road.

6 DAYS FROM TODAY !!!
Finally checked on some boxes

Well, it's been FOREVER since I've been out on the trail....but I finally got out today to check on some of my boxes. All of the 9 boxes I checked are part of the "All Creatures Great and Small" "series" at Salem Lake in Winston-Salem, NC. I was happy to find 7 of the boxes....but sad to find that 2 of them were seemingly gone. I was on a VERY limited time schedule - so I know the boxes are there.....I really didn't take time to check their condition - except one that was obviously totally mangled. The 2 "missing" ones have had their statuses changed. To make this "series" a little easier to decipher - I have chosen to group them into groups based on their trails. The boxes from today will be Group 1 - the group designation has been added to the clue. I have not checked the other 2 trails - so their group designations will have to wait.
All of these "All Creatures Great and Small" boxes are VERY lonely! They've really not had many visitors since our event years ago! Hope some of you North Carolinians......or anyone else who might be passing through our lovely state, will choose to walk the trails of Salem Lake to find some of these great stamps!

Ummm... I seem to recall you completely revised one of my clues since the story really wasn't particularly creatively written....

But I'm trying to get better!

Ummm. . .

only because you ASKED me to. Not because i looked at them and said, "wow, these clues are sucky and boring!" LOL. i don't usually go around rewriting clues just because, silly ;-).

And i think these new ones were really great! Whoo hoo hoo hoo!!!

I seem to recall the asking being prompted by some feedback. But in any case, I am interested in making more creative clues. My past clues are mostly just directions. I'm trying to do something different with the clues with each new box I plant now. :)

And i'm working really hard at way more creative containers, logbooks, stamps and clues. All because of the same kind of feedback. That said basically the reason my boxes didn't get 5's is because they sucked. LOL. Because they did.

. . . and MAN! maybe i don't want to be planting any more boxes. These things take a helluva lot of TIME.

When you opt to focus on quality instead of quantity the time it takes to make one box definitely increases. But after over 200 plants (not including all the donations), I think I've done quite enough quantity! :)

Plus I like to push myself to try new things, and learning to write creative clues is probably the biggest challenge I've had so far! I've been working on it for over a year with some really great clue writers and don't have much to show for it. But I'm slowly changing that...

Tell me about it! I've now been carving a certain series for over a year--that's just the carves. Not boxes, not pouches, they're not mounted, no logbooks have been made--just the stamps. And not all of them--13 are carved, with four to go--and the last two will be the hardest (which is why they're last).

I TOLD you people to stop me before I did another long series!

Better not to do a long series because you know that the bar has now been raised for you and nice handmade logbooks and box constructions are now required. Once you start doing that stuff, you can't go back! ;)

The ones I just had planted in Maine had an urban style box construction with a code on it. You got a stamp out of that box but then solved the code off it to get another box. I really need to do some of those around here. But they do take some time.

I am moving from Massachusetts to North Carolina next week with my 3 year old(my letterboxing partner). We are very excited to start letterboxing in a new area, just hoping there are as many boxes In and around Salisbury as there are on Cape Cod :)

Tomorrow is the day that I plan to plant the boxes, and there will probably be a dozen and an half or less total. It will depend on if any arrive today. LOL. Clues will be posted tonight. As per my appointment on Tuesday, I still have four more weeks in the boot, but Doc has given me the okay to plant at the small park. Tigs will bounce along with me so that I do not overdo it.

All that we ask is that you not be hunting for boxes during the ceremony. Hopefully you will all have a super fun time and be a blessing to theseekers as you share their big day with them! 8^)

The Salisbury area is wonderful and there are plenty of boxes in the Piedmont of NC to find !!!
We're from Newton, which is about 40 miles from Salisbury.

Let us know when you're settled !!
