Geoboxing?

So, the Washington County Parks system has come up with a hybrid series called Wild About Parks Quest. It includes 22 letterboxes, 7 bonus geocaches, and 22 letters for the Master puzzle. Most of it looks pretty straight forward. They have their own boxes that they move and change each year and there are prizes for kids 17 and under if they show up in the 15th at the finale depending on how many you have found. I would be interested for next year I think.

What I like is that it gets people who are interested, but doesn't affect our boxes.
Irish Fest in Milwaukee 8/15

I'm volunteering at Irish Fest on Saturday 8/15 at the Archives tent in the Cultural Village. The exhibit is on Irish Travel posters from the 20th century.

If anyone happens to be at the Fest and would like to do an exchange, I'll be there from 2 pm to 5:30 pm. I'm bringing two Personal Travelers and two fleas from Ireland that I'd like to pass on.

HI all -

I don't see any replies so I'm hoping there may be SOMEONE in the Door who is interested in meeting up. Maybe we are solo up in the Door???

Adopting Boxes
Board: State: Wisconsin

Thread
Hi there all! I'm a fellow boxer in the Chicago area. A couple of years ago I had placed a few boxes in Sheboygan and am no longer able to maintain them. I am hoping to find a friendly soul out there who would be willing to adopt the boxes for me. Please let me know if you are willing and able to help me out! Thanks!

If you don't get a response, you might try the Yahoo Great Lakes Letterboxing Group. I don't think they're on AQ too much. I never see anything on the Wisconsin board. Or change the subject title--sometimes the word "adoption" can stir up a can of worms on the boards.

New to Milwaukee - Suggestions?

Hello everyone,

I'm getting back into the Letterboxing scene after taking a break the past few years. I'm new to the area and I'm excited to start finding and planting my own boxes soon!

Any recommendations/favorites to suggest in the Milwaukee area? I'm hoping to bring a colleague with me on one or two finds, so beginner-friendly boxes would be nice too.

Cheers!

If you would be interested in attending an event, the 2017 Great Lakes Gathering - "One for the Books" will be held in the Milwaukee area (Delafield) on June 24th. That would be a great place to meet up with some local boxers and find lots of great letterboxes!

Thanks! I had spotted that and thought to myself that I am so lucky that I decided to check in to AtlasQuest here and now. I would have been kicking myself so hard if I had pushed off logging in until July! :)

There is also a Yahoo group (great lakes board) that had a bunch of locals on it where you may get more feedback. But you should DEFINTELY come to the GLK event later this month!

Hope to meet you there,

I see the posts on this board are pretty old, so I thought that I would make an introduction to give it a boost. {Off topic but, OMG A NEW PREDATOR MOVIE, eta September..WOOT}
I am in northeast Wisconsin and my days off are Monday/Thursday. Those will be my trail days if anyone is interested in partnering sometime.

I am in Manitowoc. Rhinelander, I think is about 3 hours from here? I have a friend from Rhinelander and she's taken me up there a couple of times. An exchange sounds fun! If any dates are good for you this summer let me know. I just need three weeks advance notice for PTO at work if possible.

Considering going...not sure yet. I went last in 2010 which seems a long time ago now. But it was certainly a memorable trip! First year after earning my PPL so everything was new and shiny. :)

Yeah, I know it’s really early, but there is a lot of planning ahead! I’ll drop a line much closer to time!
