don't be confused by "Like a Prayer" down the road a bit.
But do get the rest of them in town and around.

If you're coming to town, when?
Always up for a meet-up.

I already got this box - Prayer Rock - but was doing research for another boxer that was headed that way. You and I will meet for soup, I hope.

Tell them to drop us a note if they'll be in the area.
If it might help, I could do a recon on the box on Saturday.

Mmmm, hot soup.
Hope my favorites are there again.

Found the box today, so it is also still there. If anybody is going to find it soon, it could use a dry logbook and a fresh set of zip-locks. It was damp, but still legible. Hope this helps.

Hi Vermont! My family is up visiting for a few months and I am realizing I didn’t bring all the things I need for some LTCs I’m working on. Where do you go locally for supplies? Starting with card stock. I’m in the Hardwick/Woodbury area - I’ve located a Joanne’s in Berlin. Doesn’t have to be a chain - any hidden gems out there?

You aren’t that far from Johnson where there is The Studio Store. They don’t have much of a website but have been open since I was a teen. Might be just “fine arts” rather than “crafts” so I’d recommend a call first. I have an under visited LB in Johnson in case you are interested! :)

I don't have any suggestions in the Hardwick area, but if you go to Johnson, VT there is a box which was a pleasant surprise.
If you're picnic people, bring one.
If you have little ones with you, there's a Fairy Forest there too.

(Not the same Journey's End on the Long Trail.)

Stowe area, anything by greenmountainhiker is worth the trip.
Stowe again, if you're going, AQ mail me for a mystery box.

I was in VT. for a week, letterboxing and locating covered bridges. I saw so many fields of hemp even a field across the road from a police station. It was amazing to see.

I tried it.
Let me first say, I didn't read any of the detailed information such as side effects before trying it.
The pervayor told me to "patch test" before going with a normal dose.
I put one DROP on a small gauze pad, not dropper, the implement to get it out of the bottle, on my knee just before going to bed.
I put plastic wrap over my knee to keep the oil from rubbing off while sleeping.
Morning, I put one more DROP on to the same pad and rewrapped before going to work.
About an hour later I started to feel light-headed to the point that I was hugging the walls at work.
Yes, the pain was virtually gone, but so was my ability to walk a straight line, or drive safely.
By about 2 PM I noticed the pain coming back and was feeling a bit steadier.

That was that for me.
Great, it took the pain, but made me feel unsafe to navigate the world.

Back it went to the pervayor for a refund.
Yes, I got a refund.

One dose was supposed to be one dropped on skin.
People tried to tell me it was all in my head, but if I didn't know the side effects, well....

My wife and I have both used the CBD cream on a few locations and it does seem to make them feel better. She is also talking the CBD oil orally, one or two drops a day and she finds that it's helpful.

Yeah, I’ve read all the stuff about it online. I wanted to hear her personal experience if she had tried it. I don’t know anyone else who has actually used it.

I use CBD regularly. My husband does as well.

I use a CBD oral spray for my anxiety and panic attacks. I will say that it does have some effect and has stopped me from spiraling into an attack. Actual marijuana can have mixed results for my anxiety. It can actually trigger panic, for me.

My husband uses medical marijuana for his nerve pain in his shoulder and arm. When he travels for work or is on call, he obviously doesn't want to have the effects of the THC so he uses a CBD vape pen and/or a topical. The CBD DOES help him so he can function and sleep, just not as well as the THC does. That almost completely eliminates his nerve pain.

Thanks. That was useful information.

I’ve been reading that states that have legalized marijuana (not just medical) are seeing a decline in the use of prescription opiates. I can believe that. I would imagine the majority of people who legitimately take it for pain would rather not.

I would imagine there is a whole spectrum of experiences with CBD, from negative to positive and everything in between.

I think it will be regulated someday and become more and more mainstream. The big drug companies will want to get in on the $$$$$.

I get my full spectrum CBD tincture from a dispensary and it is tested (so I know I am giving this the best try I can). I can't get it to do anything for anxiety or depression. I was on the 1200mg bottle and take a full dropper twice a day. Tbh, maybe my issues are just too severe for it. For my migraines, I am unsure. I feel there is some decrease in pain. I have also tried it when I was starting to get sea sick from too much turning while taking people out tubing. It seemed to help some with that.

Heads up: Any med that you can not have grapefruit with, you can not have CBD with. So that includes heart meds like Lipitor, estrogen (so hormone therapy and combination birth control). It reduces their effectiveness, so don't go be "I feel fine", because you may end up taking care of a new human for 18+ years. :P

The tinctures didn't work for my anxiety/depression either. I really needed the fast acting aspect of the spray and vape.

It helps my back and leg pain. I didn’t realize it was gently helping my mood until I quit taking it for about a week. Going back to my dispensary Sunday when they have it 40% off. I use a 1000mg/ounce.

Not sure if you are still here, but The Drawing Board in Montpelier is definitely the hidden gem you are looking for. They have plenty of supplies for creating stamps, books, etc.
