All right... so it's obvious that we can't always give our favorite LBs a diamond (no matter what rating we give)

Soooooo....let's hear what your favorite LB EVER WAS!

The Birches - Robert Frost Farm - Derry, NH
Carved by Tyra of the Murry Herd (formerly Murry7)
Planted by Littlemoon.

Had a beautiful view, a spot with a lot of history behind it related to a favorite poet and the stamp was an amazing carving that reminded me of what being a child is all about. The simple joy of being outside, playing in the woods or field with no agenda or electronics....just the freedom of unstructured play and a love of fresh air and sunshine!
I have several other favorites, but this one really hit a note with me!

My favorite was filled with history, too. It's the Paul Revere Rules series of three in MA planted by the girl scouts.

It litteraly took you on a history tour through the town that Paul Revere did battle in and helped change the war. Their was so much about Paul Revere that I did not know until I did that series. It had three great carved stamps, all historic, and it ended in a graveyard (one of my favorite LBing places) next to P
aul Revere's grave!

LOVED IT.

One of our most treasured finds was just outside of Helen GA. "Hemlock Falls" was the name of the LB.

We hiked to the falls with our 4 children (8, 3, 2, & 6months) in 31 degree weather. Snow and ice coverd the ground but the hike was breathtaking, not just because it was so cold.

It was quite a hike but the terrain was beautiful. Once you reach the falls you actually climb up the side of the waterfall to find the box. The stamp is also amazing. This was one of our favorites! If you are ever in North Georgia there are some amazing letterboxes in that area. I will let you know that some of the LB's in Georgia are crazy, and they do not let you know that. We did two boxes just outside of Helen GA that took us on a 5 mile trek, in 4 wheel drive in our Suburban (because of the ice and mud) on the side of mountains.

We actually had to turn around on one because we were running low on gas and we were traveling down one side of the mountain and were afraid we were going to run out of gas.

North Georgia is a great place to LB, check it out if you dare! LOL!

I have always loved being able to walk behind waterfalls.

I have also found letterboxes by waterfalls, and it's just the best of both worlds!

Got to be the Riverbox Series in Ohio. Those had to be some of the most origianl hides I have ever seen. I will never forget those boxes. They were awesome especially since they wern't done by letterboxers.

Locally...without a doubt..Les Loups et a Lune by drgdlg. An absolutely amazing hand carved stamp. No cheap imitations here!!

The Riverbox series was awesome...

...but one of my prized finds is Wheathead (Lebanon, KS) by Der Mad Stamper.
It's the first letterbox placed in Kansas--on 12/31/98. I had just started letterboxing (this was in September 07) and to find this old of a box, carved and placed by a legend in letterboxing is just special to me.

This reminds me of a spot up near the Canadian border where there is a waterfall that you can drive your boat, canoe, kayak, raft, or just swim all around the fall. It falls from so high that it creates it's own wind current next to it. I think I should plant a box near it. Great thought. I needed a reason to go back up there.
When the weather is hot like it is now, the dam adjusts the water level throughout the daily cycle. In the afternoon, the water is dropping and during the night and early morning, the water is rising. There are meadows in this stretch that get flooded during the highest part of the morning, enough so that you can swim, and I mean swim, in fields of daisies.
I do have to go back up there. Most summers, I spend a week kayaking up there.
I think I will go look for some pictures to prove what I say.

I am a total night owl...unfortunately this does not help my bouts of insomnia. Add to this working full time and pulling a full course load in college...and the single mom...someday when I'm working graveyard delivering a baby I will think back to the late nights and dragging days at work and know that it was all worth it....
