Hello, it's me, WarriorWoman.

Just started using Atlas Quest and am loading my info into its database, including all my planted boxes. Right now just browsing the site.

I've been boxing all winter, despite the snow. Can't record all my finds in here, though, since the database is new and relatively incomplete, especially for RI and MA.

I'll be planting a Sprite and Highlander box on Rome Point in the near future, and the Boo Boo Box is due to make its postal debut in the next week.

This place looks like fun!

Just a note to let you guys know that I will be flying into and out of Providence on Monday night 2/6 and Tuesday morning 2/7. So I could be available for a Personal Traveler exchange!!

(warning though, it is a kindof crappy little airplane stamp)

Flight #62 arrives PVD at 9:44pm and I fly out again on Tuesday morning flight flight 1023 at 7:10am. I'll be staying at the Comfort Inn Providence Airport. If you catch me in the lobby of the Comfort Inn as I arrive or depart in uniform (around 10:30pm or around 6 am ) you can get my Working Personal Traveler!

Let her be in our prayers.

Hello Rhode Island,
Just wondering who from RI is attending the gathering. Since I do not know anybody, it would be nice to try and find someone from RI. Looking forward to meeting all of you and putting a face to the names I see in the lob books.

Colonial Industry Series Planted!
Board: State: Rhode Island
Jan 26, 2007 6:00am
I know that I really procrastinated on this series, but I finally planted the 4 box Colonial Industry series "in the wild".

For those of you who attended last November's Mystery Gathering in RI, these were my "hidden in plain sight" boxes.

For those of you who did not attend, now you can go and search for them!

Have fun!

box suggestions
Board: State: Rhode Island
Jan 27, 2007 11:30pm
Hi everyone. I am going to be traveling to the Providence area for one day, and am looking for suggestions of boxes I should hunt. For this trip, I'm interested in drive-by, urban, and other easy-access boxes. I won't have a lot of time and won't be able to change into hiking gear. So if you know of any boxes that meet those criteria and that you'd recommend, please either post them here or AQ-mail me.

I am traveling from Boston, so if you know of cool boxes somewhere on the route in between, I'd be glad to hear about those, too. (I think I'll be on I-95 for most of the way.)

Thank you so much for your help!

I'll shamelessly recommend two of my own boxes.

If you're going to be on 295 at all, Beautiful Rest Stop is right off 295 going North in Lincoln. I didn't put it down as a drive-by but it's a really short walk, like 5 minutes there and 5 minutes back.

Ladd Observatory Box #1--the Outer Box; it's a drive-by, and is located right in Providence. I'm pretty proud of the stamp! If by some miracle you're here when the Observatory is open, you can go for the inner box as well. It's definitely there but no-one's found it yet because the observatory is only open Tuesday nights from 7-9, and only if it's clear that night.

Enjoy your time in the Ocean State!

Thank you, July. I've printed the Observatory clues already. I'll only be there tomorrow, so I won't be able to hunt the inside box, but I can try for the other one.

I'm not sure whether I'll be able to go to Lincoln, but I'll print those clues just in case. Thanks for letting me know that it is a quick walk.

I appreciate the help!

Hi Dread Pirate Queen, There is a series in Roger Williams Park Zoo titled One more Book Please. I think it is a series of 12 but some are missing. I actually haven't found these yet they are on my "to do" list. It is just a few exits down from Providence off on I-95. Most of the boxes I have found in RI are in the southern area. It is not actally in the zoo so you don't have to pay to get in.

Coming your way.....

We are heading down to Foxwoods in the morning, and was wondering if there are any drive bys on the way down.

Can anyone give us some suggestions?? We will be taking I-95 down through MASS, and RI into CT.

Would love to try to get some on the way.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions,

Susan and Ray

Have you tried doing a AQ search for Route 95? It will give you the list of boxes within a set number of miles of the interstate selected. This is a very good option for road trips.

need hitchhikers!
Board: State: Rhode Island
Jun 26, 2007 8:35pm
I'm leaving for California tomorrow! Been keeping an eye out for hitchhikers lately but no luck... so I tried a local hitchhiker hostel today but couldn't find it! Then I tried three more likely boxes--no hitchhikers. If anyone happens to be reading this tonight and happens to have a hitchhiker they'd like to see travel, and happens to live in or near Providence...if you drop it off before 9:30 am tomorrow (June 27) at the Ladd Observatory Letterbox (outer box) I'll take it west. The box is easy to find at night.

I figured this was worth a shot!


p.s. if this is totally uncool hitchhiker etiquette, let me know--I'm still sort of new--
Triple Crown of Fright

Hi everyone!

Soooo just went I felt I had thought of a great way for others to enjoy the Halloween crazinessof letterboxing.. an innovative idea emerged from the FN3 organizers crew at our meeting this last week...

Since a number of folks are coming for most of the weekend and
included in that group are some mystery folks....

AND there are some folks who cant attend the MAINE EVENT of Fright on

We decided "Lets Turn it UP a notch!"

So at the behest of the Frightnight crew You will now see that the Triple Crown of Fright is listed currently!

That means
2 unique mini events are now wrapped around the Main event
Frightnight 3....SO we now have a Frightnight Weekend.........

Sooooo the question is


Any questions please email me directly on yahoo or AQ......

We appreciate everyone's contribution to this year's extravaganza and past Frightnight events! This is our way to insure maximum enjoyment for all!

I'm planning a small lunch & exchange so that some of us local RI boxers can get to know each other. I will not be listing this as an event on the event page. This would take place somewhere around Providence or possibly Seekonk. The tentative date is Dec. 9th in the afternoon. Please contact me if you would be interested in coming.

Happy trails!

Any gatherings going on in RI soon? I'd like to get back into the swing of things.
