Oh shoot! We'll be in Boston for my nephew's graduation that weekend! Happy hunting! We'll have to head up your way another time and check out all the new boxes. We really appreciate you taking the time to carve, plan and plant all these new boxes. You're awesome! :)

Ooh, that will be a nice trip. Whenever you get up here, send me a message if you would like. It would be fun to meet up for a bit. 😊

We did not wind up getting home after church until after 2:00, so driving over there did not work out. We missed spending part of the beautiful day with you but look forward to hearing about it. Happy trails!

A big shout-out and Thank-you to Bluebird for a fun event. It was great to see old friends and meet new ones. Our group had a great time walking the trails, chatting and finding neat LBs on our adventure.

ISO a payphone

I know these still exist... somewhere.

Does anyone know where I could find one? Preferably in the Lake Norman/Charlotte area, but I'm getting desperate.

(I thought there was one at the Big Ben Pub, but it's only the booth, no phone)

I do not know of a specific URL, but there are payphone locator web sites. Try Google!

I have! I got an address from one & ended up at a gentlemen's club - which didn't have a payphone. I went to a $1 Store & and never had one... there are some at the courthouse, but sending Lbx'ers there for a stamp won't work.

Don't know about North Carolina but I do know that the rest stops in Pennsylvania and Florida all have pay phones in them.

I can't imagine who is trying to lure us over there. So. Many. Boxes.

Do we need a mini meet or something?

Letterboxing supply freebies

I'm not really letterboxing anymore and will be cleaning out my supply stash. I know I have some camo pouches (including several small pouches), some logbooks, and scrap pieces of carving materials that can be used to carve cooties or fleas. I think I even have a NC Treasure Hikers charm somewhere. Is anyone interested in claiming this in NC? I can send it via mail. First to post a reply gets it!

I have two stamps I'll plant soon but then I'm officially done from planting. I may still head out to box now and then but it's pretty rare for me nowadays. I do miss many of you I have met over the years though.

Funny coincidence, I can't remember the last time I saw a phone booth, then today I saw one in a park less than a mile from my home. I was at the park wondering what that guy on the bike was doing way over there. So after he left, I walked over and there was a payphone next to one of the picnic benches, kind of tucked away.

Thanks for the offer of picking them up Candy and DeeCee but it might be a bit hard to coordinate with my schedule. I hope you enjoy the event this weekend and don't get rained out (stupid weather).

Since this was a NC giveaway to first NC person to post reply, these will be going to JBartiste.

Thanks to all of you who messaged me but these are now claimed.
