Gosh, I miss some of those folk! Scoutdogs carved my sig stamp for me! I had an email from Franz not too long ago.

I ran a search using Ohio as location, looking only at active, unknown and unavailable boxes, then sorted by date planted. According to that very rudimentary search, there is a FlyFisher "restoration box" that has been adopted and moved (twice) found in 2017, so 15 years.... Franz has one at 13 years (French Park)

This is such an interesting thread--if I were a bit younger I'd go after some of those oldest plants. Unfortunately, I do not do well in the underbrush, which is where so many of them will be.

And speaking of decluttering ... why do I have two Ohio gazetteers? If anyone has an interest in one of them, let me know.

May I just 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) all of these wonderful AQ wishes to these 2 letterboxes who make my letterboxing world better? Honestly, letterboxing in the midwest is the best because of you two.

Does such a letterbox as WKRP..."As God is my witness I thought Turkeys could fly" already exist in Cincinnati exist? Would anybody living in that area be interested in planting/adopting one?

That was sooo funny. I could barely keep myself together when I was describing the episode to my daughter who had never heard of the show. That one and the one about Les's enemy tornadoes.

We live about 1.5 hrs away & would gladly plant a WKRP box-probably in Spring Grove for more exposure-if someone wanted to carve 1?? Alas our carver has wrist problems so no stamps coming out of the R-Gang camp at this time

Hey, franzsolo here. I was just browsing the boards and found this subject.
I started letterboxing in November of 2001.Went back and forth with flyfisher in Dayton Ohio.
My first plant was "pigs" but have no record of where I planted the box.
My first find was "Fort Ancient" by Polly.
My 1st attempt was Nov 5th 2001 It took me three tries ! I asked Polly for a hint but would NOT give me a brake ! :)

All these plants and finds were under "LETTERBOXING NORTH AMERICA" not Atlas Quest.
I joined AQ a few years later.
I had tons of fun meeting Ohio letterboxers . Finding great places to plant and hike also.
I really miss everybody due to there is not much boxing activity out here in the Northwest.But I do have a journal full of great stamped memories !!!
Hope everyone is doing well,

franzsolo...

You are so missed! If you ever make it back to Ohio let us know. I miss chasing your boxes the day you planted them, lol.

Most of my finds for those first years were yours. I might just give those old ones out there a shot. I love a challenge!

Was looking at the boxes in southern Ohio, there’s a few there but I also noticed that they have not been found at all, one of them being mine, or not in quite a while. Are there not any Lboxers in that area? We were in a beautiful park at the KY stateline.

The SW corner of Ohio tends to a bit more active than the SE right now. I know I haven't been out that way in several years, primarily because my boxing time is so limited that I tend to stick close to home or go where there is a larger density of boxes for me.

Thank you for planting there! We have lots of wonderful boxers in Ohio and I feel like we are all starting to box more again. You must have hit a down time; hopefully the drought is ending :)

Hoping with the emptying of my nest next fall, I might be able to get out and about a bit more!!
