Amyrica I can't bring Abby due to the hotel!!!

Thanks for the heads' up! I totally understand. You'll have a nice time in downtown Greenville. It's a cute downtown area.

We'll be planting a box there after the gathering--sorry we couldn't get it there beforehand. Since you're sticking around, I'll call you on your cell phone after it's planted so you can go find it! :-)

Sure, email me your cell phone number offline or give it to me Saturday and I'll give anyone a buzz that wants the clue that will be around later Saturday night/Sunday. I'm still not sure what time I'll be able to plant the box. My mother-in-law is in Greenville and I think we're going straight to her house from the gathering. Hopefully, we can pull her out and take her with us to the spot I intend to hide the box.

Yeah - I was wondering how/if clues to newly planted boxes might be distributed.

We will be planting in the AM too....and

heading to downtown G'ville afterwards - promised the kids a trip to the zoo!

I'm leaving first thing in the morning. My parents are already there. I'd leave tonight if I thought I could find the place in the dark. They probably also lock the gate at night. Can't wait!

Good idea Red! I actually thought about sending her to Amyrica's mom's (in-law?) if possible but it is just to much trouble. When we need to stop to eat Sunday, we would have to do fast food. Bluck!
So she is going to stay behind this time but she will be at Stone Mtn.
I hope shooting T comes anyway!
It's funny that EVERY child could care less about Christopher or myself but when it comes to that dog, she gets ALL the LOVE!!! LOL

I wonder if they're going to try to charge the bears that knock down small trees, or the deer that create their own "highways" through the underbrush and eat the leaves off the trees...?

If I had the money, I'd buy up a whole bunch of cheap acreage and post signs all around the perimeter that said: No Trespassing Unless You're Letterboxing!

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT - Tick Project
Board: Region: Southeast
May 27, 2005 12:34pm
For those of you who haven't seen this in your local papers:

Georgia Public Health Tick Attach Project

The Georgia Division of Public Health is partnering with the University of Georgia and the Georgia Poison Center to conduct a tick attach study. The study will help identify areas in Georgia where the chances of getting sick from a tick bite are the greatest.

If you find a tick attached to yourself or another person you can call the Georgia Poison Center (404-616-9000 or 800-222-1222) 24/7 for information about tick removal, identification and testing.

The Georgia Poison Center will provide information about how to mail the tick to get it tested when you call. The University of Georgia will test the tick for the bacteria that cause tick-borne diseases like Rocky Mountain spotted fever, ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease, Southern Tick-Associated Rash Illness (STARI) and tularemia, depending on the species of tick.

Three weeks after you call the Georgia Poison Center, an expert in tick illness from the Georgia Division of Public Health will call you to ask some questions about exposures to tick habitats and find out if you developed symptoms of tick-borne illness. You will get the results of the tick testing when it is done.

If you would like more information about tick-borne diseases in Georgia, call the Georgia Division of Public Health at 404-657-2588 or visit our website at:

http://www.health.state.ga.us/epi/vbd/tick.asp

(I'd advise everyone to go visit the website whether you want to or not! I found a huge Lone Star tick on me this morning after wandering in the wooded section of our backyard. It wasn't attached, just walking around on me. I flicked it off and captured and enclosed it in a piece of transparent tape.)

Happy Boxin'!

Cool ...I'll have to check that out.

We've actually been highpointing for a while. We got MA. RI. ,and CT. this weekend, making it 24 total state highpoints. Now we need to revisit some highpoints so we can continue our series.

Enjoy, Blue Skies,

What about the high points located in National Parks? Off the top of my head, I can think of at least five state highpoints that would be off limits.

And unless they're very careful, the high point of NC won't keep a letterbox long. The rangers at Mt. Mitchell are most LB-unfriendly.

Perhaps, a box could be placed at the Low Point (away from the ocean) just to get the point across in North Carolina.

Why would a national park be "off limits"?

Virginia's highest point was absolutely beautiful.  Did you see any ponies?

When it comes to "unfriendly" high points... We'll need to find the nearest friendly spots to plant LB's. We've already had to improvise with Rhode Island's privately owned highpoint.

The NPS isn't fond of letterboxes. *shrug*

Absolutely! =) But you know, the actual highest point is rather anti-climatic. Just a bunch of trees around blocking the view....

Yep, I was thinking that, too.  Texas and Washington's highest points are both NPS territory.  It'd definitely be interesting to try to plant those LBs--the one in WA would require year round crampons, ice picks and a can of deicer just to open the container once you're there.  ;)

So is California, Alaska, and Tennessee. I'm not sure about Colorado, but I have a hunch it might be too. And while Maine's is not in a national park, I'd be completely shocked if they allowed it! They take "leave no trace" more seriously than even national parks to, which I think is commendable.

National parks are bad about building services for visitors which attracts more visitors and damages the environment they want to protect. Baxter SP in Maine is the only place I've ever been where nature comes before people! No paved roads, no running water, no potable water for that matter--it's quite commendable in my book, but for that reason, I'd seriously doubt they'd allow letterboxing. In fact, I hope they don't! =) It's nice that there is a place where people are second class citizens to the environment.

I would never make it if all letterboxes were like the ones in Madison County, NC (requires rope and grappling hook!!) and I am glad there are "drive bys", and even those park type boxes that require short hikes, but right now i could never do a 10 mile hike and keep up with a group. 

Are there gonna be any other fluffy boxers at the Stone Mountain gathering???
