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.

Where in NE Wisconsin?! I grew up in Rhinelander, still get there a few times a year to visit my Mom. Maybe we could meet for an exchange 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!

I'm headed out July 7th, 10am from the boat house. Plan to clean up all 4 loops. If you want to tag along, let me know to expect you. I've already got one buddy so I'm not alone, but I've kinda neglected things, so I've got to get all of them anyways.

Oh yes. Every once in a while, I wonder if I'm going to find another person looking for the same box I'm looking for. Then I remember that no one has found it in four years (usually) and the odds of someone looking at the exact hour I am are.....pretty slim. :D

Series sneak peek near Three Lakes, WI
Board: State: Wisconsin
Nov 23, 2019 10:31pm
Hello Wisconsin!

I planted a series of boxes near Three Lakes a couple years ago, but I just got around to writing the clues. They are some of my best carves, and they honor a man I highly respect. Since they have been in the wild so long, I am wondering if there is a boxer near Three Lakes or Rhinelander that would be interested in getting a sneak peek at the clues to check on the boxes before I make them go live.

If that is you, send me an AQ Mail, and I'll get you set for the trail!

Thanks!

I posted this already on the Region: Great Lakes board, but I just want to make sure the word gets out.

Get ready to play the latest edition of the longest Bingo game in the world, Great Lakes Letterboxing Bingo! Based on boxers, boxes, and events in the six Great Lakes states from the traditional Yahoo Great Lakes board (OH, MI, WI, MN, IL, and IN), the game is open to anyone who would like to join in the fun.

The game start Jan. 1 and continues with one word called per day. A great way to stay connected to letterboxing and letterboxers thru the winter.

Interested? Just send me your email address in a private AQ message, and I'll send you out your 2020 bingo grid, word list, and rules. No commitment!
Going crazy with social distancing

Happy spring all,

I am going a little stir crazy cooped up by myself. I'm a teacher and we are at home for the foreseeable future. I'm in Milwaukee, if anyone would like to do some boxing on one of the warmer days coming up, let me know. I would not mind doing maintenance on some of my loops from past events, so that is an option too. Keeping our social distance on the trails while we are out is the plan.

Me too. I don’t feel like carving or reading. Going back and forth between here, Facebook, Netflix, and YouTube.

But I live in New York. Sorry

I would hike with you, or do maintenance- but I would have to do weekends, or after 5:00; I'm working from home. IF you want to check on Minooka loops, I was there yesterday- it is SCARY how much they have changed the trails and park!!!!

Sadly, I also have not been inspired to carve as of late, hoping this too shall pass!
