1) What was the letterbox in the fake log under the birdhouse?

The fake log under the bird house is a bonus box: AQ 303692. You must log the birdhouse find before you can log the stump bonus box. :)

Haha. Does anyone else find it amusing that we hit 2,000 and 3,000 and 4,000? Did anybody hit 5,000? πŸ˜‰

Hello my NC friends! Now that Geek Fest is over and you have had a whole day to recover, it's time to start thinking about our next adventure! Actually, you can rest longer, but if I don't post this now, I will forget!

I've posted two crafting events for props, etc for the event, one for June 29 and one for August 10. Also, I know that all of you are so creative, so send me and Super Hedge Hoggie all of your wonderful ideas for animal props!

Thanks!!

After chatting with some folks over the weekend, I said that I would post details. Here you go! 😁

We have a new boxer in our midst. Yay! JBartiste is not able to get to most events because she works Saturdays, yet she would like to meet other boxers. For this reason, we planned a casual meetup for June 2nd to introduce her to some of you and enjoy going out boxing together. The Mooresville Meetup is the first weekend in June.

Strictly Nightboxing 4 will be August 17th. This focuses on nightboxing. Of course, you can hunt for other boxes in the area over the weekend, as well.

If you have questions, please ask. If you would like to contribute any stamps toward the nightboxing event, please do! You can check out the stamp request page here. Thank you oodles and bunches, and we hope to see you at one or both events!

I might be able to pick up a couple letterboxes this weekend in Branson, while chaperoning the kids' school music trip! Both the older two are in choir. The band director scheduled some training and performance times for both band and choir in Branson! Yay!

Oh! Enjoy Branson. I'm hoping to spend a couple days there in June sometime and I too will probably pick up a couple letterboxes while there. If you run into something I shouldn't waste time on let me know. But boxes there seem to be in pretty good shape overall, at least for the drive-bys.

Hopefully by now some of the dust has settled from the amazing Geek Fest 2 and life is returning to normal for the hosts. Unfortunately, after injuring myself I had to head home before the announcements of the Power Plant Challenge on Saturday evening so I was wondering if the results could be posted here. Perhaps listing the top planters and the total number of boxes that this challenge generated would be interesting to many of us....or at least to me! Thanks for a wonderful time even though mine was cut short!

WHEW - what an amazing challenge and participant announcement at Geekfest!

Over 80 letterboxers participated in the Power Plant Challenge!! All told, more than 2100 new boxes were planted - 2100 new traditional, permanent plants that everyone can enjoy! WOW!!! We had absolutely no clue that it would take off like that!

The patches are in the mail - literally - I sent them off to the post office this afternoon so they are on the way to everyone who could not attend. To the small group of participants who have not yet provided me your mailing address... check your AQ messages and send me your mailing address.

16 boxers planted more than 50 (FIFTY!!!!) traditional, permanent boxes in the past six months!!! SUPER SUPER AWESOME!! When the pathtags arrive, we will send out a message so we can get those out to folks.

SIX boxers planted more than 100 traditional, permanent boxes in the past six months!! ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!! (no additional prize, but I wanted to brag on them).

The grand prize winner (of pink stuff - of course) is:

AIRSTREAM DREAMS!!! She planted an almost unbelievable (but we believe it) 181 boxes as part of this challenge and totally packed her home town and of course, North Carolina with new plants for everyone to find!

Thanks again for all the positive discussion, hype, and of course, PLANTING that came from this challenge. We would be open to having another/similar challenge in the future, and I hope everyone enjoys all the recent plants and keeps planting more boxes!

Happy Letterboxing!

Wow!!!! Thanks for the update and thank you for sponsoring this fun challenge. It was wonderful to be inspired to clear my desk of all of the stamps and logbooks that had been waiting literally for years to be planted and it looks as though a lot of others did the same thing! What a great inspiration!

That's awesome... I would have had been able to plant a few more - but we had snow on the ground for most of the planting time... so if you do it again... maybe a different timeline so all areas can plant in better weather conditions :)
