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

I thought turkeys could fly.

But this is from my most memorable episode.

It was such fun to run into you! Been a while since we've seen someone in the wild, lol.

Perfect day for boxing, except for all those dang muggles....

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!!

I posted this already on the Region: Great Lakes board, but I just want to make sure the word gets out.

Get ready to play the latest edition of the longest Bingo game in the world, Great Lakes Letterboxing Bingo! Based on boxers, boxes, and events in the six Great Lakes states from the traditional Yahoo Great Lakes board (OH, MI, WI, MN, IL, and IN), the game is open to anyone who would like to join in the fun.

The game start Jan. 1 and continues with one word called per day. A great way to stay connected to letterboxing and letterboxers thru the winter.

Interested? Just send me your email address in a private AQ message, and I'll send you out your 2020 bingo grid, word list, and rules. No commitment!
