It took a little digging, but here is the New River Gorge's guidelines for geocaches. I would assume that they would like letterboxes to be handled in the same way. https://www.nps.gov/neri/planyourvisit/permit-guidelines-for-gps-based-activities.htm...

Thank you, dancing pecan. We had followed a link on the site for GPS based activities but it was a dead link that led to a 404 error page. Good detective work! We will contact the park superintendent and notify him or her that we placed a box there wi...

What was the Disney decree? (Just curious)

Oh, I was lucky to read the Burgemeister poem just in time for it to be deleted. Very funny with the link--but it-just-disappeared. I'd love a copy AQ'd to me if possible, can't remember who wrote it.

Just to be clear, I have no intention of outing the boxes or pulling them. Live and let live. I was mostly curious about the feelings of people in the area about the subject. I've tried several times to get the Super of the park to allow LB's and geoc...

Merry Christmas to all you boxing Mountaineers! May you find all your boxes and your ink pad never go dry!

Definitely a great thought. Hope everyone has a safe, healthy, and prosperous 2019. And of course: "It is a great day to be a Mountaineer wherever you may be!"

If traveling through the Charleston, WV area check out the Box of the Month 2019 series. This will be one location that will have a new stamp planted each month. The first one is my carving of the new Doctor Who. Eleven others from various carvers w...

HI friends! We are planning a tip out to Harpers Ferry (among other places) and are wanting to know of great places to stay: hotels, cabins, airbnb, etc. We are on a budget. But, we are hoping to maybe have a kitchen?? Also any can't miss boxes beca...

There is a nice KOA next to the park entrance/main parking lot.

... I was looking at that one, and it seemed a bit pricey. Have you stayed there?

I visited there several times and enjoyed staying at the Youth Hostel. You have kitchen privilege and choice of inside bunks or tenting if you are geared for outdoor camping. Bonus is meeting interesting people.

Calling all West Virginia boxers! Come enjoy an event in a scenic part of Virginia that you've probably never boxed in before. It will be an overnight camping event, since the event location is in the abject middle of nowhere. The park has camping and...

Hi. I am thinking of taking a trip to Fayetteville, WV, and was going to map out a route when I noticed that most of the listings have no location other than Fayetteville. Per chance has anybody mapped a route for this area? I am not looking for any...

Decide which boxes you want to do and then simply map the locations of each box, addresses, intersections, parks, etc. The map is going to be determined by which boxes you personally want to do.

I would suggest contacting WVElliotts privately via AQmail. He lives in the area and planted many of the boxes
by MissMoonProfileContactLogbookNote

Mapping a logical route is still going to be determined by what boxes a person wants to look for.
by RDHGProfileContactLogbookNote

Thank you kindly for your advice. The challenge is that there are not locations listed on many of the clues. There is only the town. When I get to town, follow this road or that will probably make sense. Since it is not local, though, I was hoping...

Thank you, IrishRef. I did contact him. 👍
by LCABProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: State: West Virginia
I see why you're asking - most of the clues are puzzles to solve, or abbreviated business names to get the addresses so you can map them out. He might as well put in the addresses if he's willing to give them out. I have found that some areas take...

... Which is why I said that you have to determine the specific location of each box and then map them out, which can be done prior to getting there. Much of my boxing is done in places I have never been to, and very often it is just a town given. I re...

... That is the point I was trying to make. Do the research at home, whether it is obvious locations or places that take a lot of work beforehand such as it being only a town listed. It can be time consuming but totally worth it. Cemetery boxes are a...

Thank you again. Yes, I get that now. Truth be told, I do not think that I have ever been to an area where almost every single box was a riddle. I guess it threw me. Well, no matter how it goes, fun adventures will be had. Haha. Thank you again,...

For cemeteries, Find a grave https://www.findagrave.com/ can be very helpful. It had GPS coordinates many times

I would suggest for lunch either Cathedral Cafe or Secret Sandwich Society. The box owner may as also be open to meeting if you reach out ahead of time. in general it always help to have a county and or town map in hand. suggest stopping at visitor...
