So hubby is saying I'm a go for the trip... we will see, hope it works out that I can go. I think I have january's and february's clue figured out. I'm not a ciper person so I may not get March's figured, but have a good start on April's and May just arrived in my inbox.

Mei I'm looking forward to it.

Is there somewhere specific on AQ to put a route of boxes for an area?

You can use the trip planner if you have a specific route you will be taking. Or, you can map all the boxes in a given area....will show the locations (or approximate) on a map. Not exactly certain what you are looking for, but I use these two to research often. Actually, you may have to be a premium member for the trip planner.

Do you mean plan a route from box to box in a certain area?

If that's what you mean, I just do it on google maps, from specific location to specific location. Always works great and no need to be a premium member on AQ.

Thank you. I did not mean to be unclear. I made a route for the area around here and wondered if there was a specific place that I might share it. It is not a trip, per see, though.
Adopting letterboxing materials and boxes?

Hey everyone!

As some of you might know, WalkinOrange passed away last year. His wife is looking for someone close to her in Matthews or Charlotte that would be willing to take all his letterboxing material and boxes and get all of his excellent carvings back into the wild.

Anyone (or multiple people) up for the task?

Hi GT,

I will be in the area this weekend for SoccerGirl02 NC ODP tournament and would love to pick-up the letterboxing supplies. Please let me know. I sent you an AQmail too.

Thanks,

If there is a lot, I would also be happy to help and would be willing to take the boxes.

I think we would all be happy to help get his carvings out in the wild! Outdoorsoccer and RDHG - let me know if you want me to plant some.

If a number of us plant, we could do a WalkinOrange tribute series with his stamps. Just an idea.

So my daughter Ruth has accepted a part time library assistant position at Eva Perry library in Apex. It is part of the Wake county public library system. I am such a proud mama today. I told her that she has to help me plant some boxes in the library.

That's wonderful. I hope she enjoys it. I am trying to move into a different library position eventually, but currently that, too.

Hope you all are doing well!

Do you remember when the North Carolina board used to be the busiest board on AtlasQuest? Where did everybody go? I know that a few people are no longer letterboxing. A bunch of us are still here, though. Why do we not chat like we used to? It is not a big deal, yet I am curious about how the activity faded.

I feel the same in WI. I was gone for a bit, came back, and it's crickets. I looked to see when the last Greater Midwest Gathering was and it looks like 2 years ago!

Actually, there is a great lakes gathering(GLG) every year, and it was just held last weekend in Minnesota. It really pained me to miss it, but it was not possible for me this year...:-( Will plan for next year though! Not sure which state is next to host, but it WILL happen!

Awesome! I've just gotten back into letterboxing and didn't see it on the event list or the past event list so I got worried. I dont remember who hosts these.

I'm still around here at least once a day. I honestly think Facebook happened. I'm not letterboxing nowadays nearly as much. Hardly ever. I come here to see if there have been new boxes planted nearby (rarely happens).

A lot of the boards are far quieter than they used to be and it's probably because AQ isn't the only game in town as far as talking with likeminded letterboxers.

I scouted locations and carved stamps this week so I'm planning to spend the next few days putting together boxes to plant in our neck of the woods. Stay tuned, knit wit!

I don't interact with boxers on FB.
AQ feels safer.
Although some of the furry and antlered creatures here do give me pause to maybe reconsider that feeling.

Included in the furry group.
That's where turtle fur comes from. Turtles are shorn just like sheep. Turtle fur is from the soft underbelly of the Geochelone Elegans.
