Rottie Lpve hasn't logged in for four months or more so unless someone is on social media with her it may be hard to tell. I know another boxer who is a close friend of hers. Maybe she knows.

We survived here in the beach again. Dodged yet another bullet. Lots of wind and rain. Haven't heard of any serious damage. It's hard to grasp the destruction caused in Waverly.

It's looking like a beautiful day here today, finally. Everybody should take a day off and come to Virginia Beach today.

Rottie Love says that they are blessed and have no damage. They still do not have power and about one mile up the road trees are an awful mess.

So glad to hear! We were also very lucky here in Petersburg and Richmond. We had a couple of tornado warnings but they passed us by. I watched all day on radar as storms passed to the west and east of us. So scary! My stepdaughter and her husband in Portsmouth were also fortunate. Thanks for checking in, BB!

Is anybody planning to be in the area Friday afternoon to hunt for some of the area boxes?

I will be. It's about a four hour drive. I don't expect to be there until one or two.

I'll be arriving on Friday afternoon. I'm leaving sometime Friday morning for the 3 and a half hour drive up by myself. My usual riders couldn't get the day off work after all and I'm not keen on driving in the dark. I want to see the landscape while driving.

Going to VA Beach

I'll be going to VA Beach for a couple of days next week. Unfortunately, I'm going with Noxers (Hubby and friend). Our friend is paying for our room and most of the eating expenses, so I wont bash him. It's just that he has everything planned out from start to finish. Being a Noxer, Letterboxing is not on the agenda.

So, I'm going to sneak in a bit if I can. I have looked in the search and see many awesome boxes available. I apologize in advance if I get some but not all. It's nothing personal. I may not get any at all :(

Here's hoping for at least 1!

Almost anywhere you go in the beach there is a library branch close by. Slip away for a few minutes to escape the heat and get a letterbox inside. All branches have an "approved" letterbox inside. You won't be disappointed at all.

Hope you enjoy your stay.

I second the Library Boxes! I didn't get them all, but the ones I got were awesome finds! Surely you'll pass a library at some point :) Just look at the clues in advance. Some need some extra brain power- worth the effort, but some maybe not the best ones if you only have a couple minutes. :)

Just got back myself. In addition to the library ones already mentioned, try #240559, I went early in morning. Pretty quick find and shouldn't interfere with 'the schedule'

With Pokémon Go hitting the streets everywhere, I can't help but think letterboxing is a better hobby. I've been out of the scene for a few years.

I'm wondering how many letterboxers are still in the area. Its good to see BBStacker is still active. It looks like we need some new boxes, too. I'll do something about that.

No hell is correct. That state takes forever to drive through. It's even worse when you're hiking through it. :)

I95 isn't so bad - well except for the DC area and the Richmond area. It's when you are going East/West on I64 that seems to take forever. But either way plan on at least five hours in the state.

East/West on I64 that seems to take forever.

Or North/South on I81 which is our preferred route from Pennsylvania to Florida because it avoids the DC area. But, oh, that long drive through Virginia makes it seem as though we aren't getting anywhere.
Box in Marion Needs New Box

If anybody is nearby or will be passing by this box, apparently, the actual box has been destroyed. The finder said that the logbook and stamp are fine but only in a plastic baggie at this point. If you are able to help by replacing the box, please let me know, and thank you!
