I grew up in Dickinson!! Great little town!! All my happy childhood memories are from ND. I wish there was more LB activity, too. Wonder if i know your relatives...you know what a small world it is, and Dickinson is still, what, 19 thousand people? I have some ideas that i want to carve and plant. We will be there next summer for a family reunion....

That is awesome! I grew up in Dickinson... many years ago. Good chance we might know some of the same people. I still have relatives in Dickinson. Will see them this summer, and going to introduce them to letterboxing. Just now sure how much activity there is in their area... but maybe if they get into it, and do some plants.... things will pick up!

They don't know Cartmill's. Did you know any Schmidt's or Schmalz's? I graduated in 73, but my niece, who still lives there, was a 86 grad. She lived on Palm Beach Rd... but I was on the south side of the tracks.

We knew some Schmidts-I think i went to elementary with a Becky Schmidt? I will have to pull up my yearbook... I left in 81 when i was ten. We lived on 12th Ave West-two blocks from the HS. I went to Jefferson Elementary and my mom was a librarian at Dickinson State College. :)
Stamp Carver Needed
Board: State: North Dakota
Nov 16, 2009 6:49am
I am in need of a carver from North Dakota. I know, I know... I'm asking a lot. :) But I'm willing to be patient until one pops up! I am doing a series here in Utah this spring during Rocky Mountain Plant-A-Box month. It will be named, "Hello From the United States!", and I am getting carvers from all over the US to participate. The theme for the stamp would be, "Hello From North Dakota!", and would be of your own design of what you'd like Utah to know of your state.

In exchange, I will carve you a stamp of your choosing, any theme. :)

I've got a date of April 1, 2010 set, so it's not an immediate need. I just wanted to give people a heads up so they have time to prepare.

Tracker is at: http://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.html?gTrackerId=3809

Montana LB Event!
Board: State: North Dakota
Jul 8, 2010 11:42am
We're having our second annual letterbox event August 14th and 15th in/near Bozeman, MT. There will be a night of camping and plenty of fun to make it worth the trip. Don't forget we're pretty close to Yellowstone National Park and lots of other cool stuff like Lewis and Clark Caverns and many many hiking trails.

Last year we had an attendance of almost 20 people and hopefully we'll have a great turnout again this year.

http://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.html?gEventId=1757

Hope to see ya there!

Hello North Dakotans!

I'm going to be visiting my grandparents in Fargo in early July and wondered if anyone might be around for a get-together.

Let me know...

Thanks,

We couldn't help but notice that you're in need of some plants and would probably appreciate some new boxes in your area! How about if you all plan an event for your state for next year and see how many folks can make it. Now, I can't guarantee that I can make it but I'm an idea kinda person and have a bunch of Noxer family members, "The Captain and his crew The Reluctants" will testify.

I'd be happy to donate a box to the efforts. If you plant them and plan the event, they will come... SD, IA, MN, Montana and Canada would appreciate it too, I'm sure! You could even chose a theme or go with a random thing.

What say YOU?

I agree that an event is a good idea. If you get an event together, please post it on the Minnesota message board (and other surrounding states). If at all possible, we would love to come and would bring a box or two to plant.

I wish more stamps were somehow related to the location in which they are planted. Researching the local history is one way to get ideas.

And by "somehow related" I mean that very loosely. For example (these are some of mine):

Bottom of an enormous cliff -- "Toonsis the Driving Cat" (from Saturday Night LIve, the cat always drives off a big cliff)
Roosevelt Forest -- A series about FDR
A park next to the headquarters of AIG - "The Great Recession"
Place where I found an unusual marbled salamander -- "Marbled Salamander"
The Mohawk Trail -- Stamp based on the flag of the Mohawk Nation

Just different ways to incorporate the location into the theme of the stamp.

Don't be discouraged. Here's your chance to start a revolution! Maybe you can get a library or community center to let you give a talk to interest others. Any outdoor groups around you can talk to? Just some ideas...
