See the Texas talk list. Trying to get information on how many of you will be in Kerrville Friday night, if you want to meet for dinner, and where y'all are staying. Please give me your thoughts on that yahoo group list. Thanks!!!
Soup's On Seeks Carvers

This year my family is hosting our ninth annual Soup's On event in November. We invite boxers to the Western MA region for the day to box, then we have a potluck of crock pot soups for dinner and more boxing in the woods around our home. The theme this year is Autumn.

I am on the lookout for stamps if anyone would be willing to carve, or donate any unused stamps you may have. I can return the stamps or permanently plant them, whatever you like.

Here are some trackers for ideas:

Autumn Holidays
Autumn Scenes
Autumn Treasures

Thanks for considering.

Event in Idaho

The Crafty Mom, babypanda, and I are working on a letterboxing event for late this summer. Logistics still need worked out, but we need to know how much interest there would be for the event. Currently the plan is to have the event over a weekend in September/August (probably Friday evening-Sunday morning). It would be near Boise, Idaho. There will be night boxes as well as boxes to find during the day. The theme is the Enchanted Forest (all things mythical, Narnia, LOTR, OUAT, etc). Because there is a cost for the campground and likely prizes as well we would have a small cost per person.
Any thoughts, tips, interest in this?

Last year was our first time to this event and we were up for 41 hours straight!!! We drove up early Saturday, went to the pre gather, then the main event, afterwards we boxed in the area, then traveled back to hartford, CT and stayed overnight!!! We also boxed on our way to CT. Example of why we are staying for the weekend this time!!!! I am bringing my PTs for at the hotel. Might take to pre gathering, not sure.

As we are just getting back to the game, I am eager to find some events that will be stamp heavy and at a maximum of about six hours from us here in the Lake Norman, NC, area. Yes, I am looking at the events list, yet I would appreciate any tips about upcoming events, too. Thank you!

Howdy and welcome back!! After Geekfest - Letterboxing gone WILD (animals!!!) in September in Raleigh and then Ready, Set, GO! in Mistletoe, GA in November will both be fantastically super awesome large scale events! Mistletoe State Park is at the very top of GA, so you can scoot through SC and join in the transportation themed excitement! So excited to see you at upcoming events!
