Or for easy Letterboxine identification, you could get:

AQ683 (Atlasquest 683)

That way there, all letterboxers would be easily identifiable......

Maybe an idea for all letterboxers for vanity plates. I know for a fact that some states now have 7 digit vanity plates so if your number is above 10,000, you still could get it.

As I was driving through the States
I took a glance at license plates.
Some were clever; some were dense
Of some I couldn't make much sense.
I see that fellow boxing fans
Have offered us their license plans.
I like AQLBXR
1MORBX, attracts, for sure.
BXCRZY, need I
Have to tell you why,
Turns my mind to boxing thoughts,
Lovely views and hiding spots.
LUV2BOX is what we feel,
IMBOXIN has a great appeal.
Slick Kitty found, unfortunately,
That in these matters often we
Are thwarted by the DMV.

My trail name also happens to be a nickname given to me, and used, by friends. Before I knew what letterboxing was, I played around on the CA DMV website trying to find out what I could get for my vanity plate. California allows 7 spaces so I first tried "Buffalo."

taken, obviously. So i tried a few derivations of that, none of which were available. My friend was looking over my shoulder and said "well this is obvious! just do Bufalo T" Brillian, I thought. So I typed it in, WITH the space and when the little graphical preview came back it showed
bufalot

BUFALOT! (pronounced buff-a-lot). I thought about it and didn't really want to be associated with the beefcakes that are pumping iron on muscle beach.

I now officially believe in ghosts... And I think myself and several others have come in contact with the spirit of my grandpa... Want to hear the story? Okay...

We have this cabin in a small town called Index, Washington. It's right near a river and the city Snohomish. This cabin we own was built by my grandfather from the ground up. Every other weekend when my dad was a kid, they would go up to the cabin and hang out for a few days. Right before I was born (less than 6 months before my birth), my grandfather died on a golf course with two dentists. (It's a little ironic they weren't doctors that studied hearts, instead of teeth... but anyways...) He was burried under a stump in front of the cabin.

Last summer when we went up there, my mom slept in the downstairs part of the cabin in the guest room. She heard many noises, including the scary noise that caused her to wake up and jump out of bed of someone falling down the stairs and then no one being there... She slept downstairs for another night, continued to hear odd noises, and then left for home, while leaving us there. I decided that it would be more comfortable downstairs on a queen sized bed instead of on a kid bunk bed upstairs where it is hot and stuffy. Well, it took me almost an hour each night I was down there to get to sleep. I also woke up the first night and heard foot steps and no lights were on.

So, anyways... my dad took a few friends up this weekend to go skiing because Index is near the mountains and pretty snowy in the winter. One guy slept downstairs and heard nothing when he slept. Someone that slept upstairs decided not to go skiing while everyone else was out. About two hours after everyone else left, he was taking a shower and heard two doors close. No one was home but him.

The next day, my dad was telling him how my mom and I claimed that we had heard strange noises and think that his dad haunts the cabin. This guy's eyes got a little big and he seemed a little spooked... As they were driving home today, this guy told my dad the story about the two slamming doors. They confirmed that he heard the slamming doors before my dad told him my mom's and my theory that the cabin is haunted...

Too weird for me not to believe in ghosts officially... *shudders*

I believe in you Bobguyman (almost a quote from Peter Pan). I finally saw something at my work (Hospice facility). It was a woman in a white nightgown. She had short spiky hair.

I feel better about them now that I've "seen" one. Weird but true. I used to get totally freaked out before that. Now, not so much. I'm glad. It's hard to work at the front desk by myself when I'm being freaked out by otherly beings.

I have experienced 2 ghostly things.

1) When I was 10 years old, I was sleeping on the couch. I saw a little boy come out of my parents room and walk through the livingroom and into the kitchen. Upon asking my parents about it in the morning, they told me that a little boy had died in the basement in the house in a kerosene fire back in the sixties. They then told me that there is no such things as ghosts and that I must have either been dreaming, or I imagined it.

2) At my grandmothers house my sister ran into my room all freaked out. She insisted that she saw our great-grandmother. She described the woman that she saw to our grandmother who said that that was an accurate description of her mother, includung how her hair was done and down to the color of her apron which my grandmother said was only off for church. What makes this even stranger is that there is no photographs of my great-grandmother anywhere. They were destroyed in a flood before either my sister or I were born. So she would have no other way to describe her if she hadn't seen her.

I have had paranormal experiences and yes would love to be on a ghost hunting team ( I come with my own laptop, digital camera, digital recorder and a HI 8 Video recorder-*hint, hint*) Yes Janet I would love to come visit your work if you still have ghost(are you going to Weches, TX event in Mar? I am) You can go to the cabin and tell whoever is there that they need to go on to the other side, hopefully that will send them on.

You're sounding like my cousin.... Or me :)

My cousin decided to get together a ghost hunting team, and when I found out, I could barely contain myself! Still hasn't got it started yet because all the people he knows are going off to college, so it's still at the drawing board. Shucks!

There are a couple of teams here in Oklahoma but one is usually not taking applications and the other some friends of mine have started and they do more than just paranormal they look into UFOs and bigfoot and what not. I just want to work on the demons and spirits that are roaming the earth not bigfoot(yes I believe) or UFOS/aliens(undecided and no I don't want to see any information on it)

No doubt about it! Our home office room is actually referred to as "the room"...too much to go into. Plus have had several "things" happen in 2 different cemeteries.

But one thing that has to be a omg moment was when my then supervisor brought in a picture and ask me how something like that could be.
The family had decided to finally sell off the family home and it had been a few years since the parents had passed on. His sister decided to take a picture to give each sibling of the homeplace.
Clearly in the window was his mother holding a baby...they had a baby pass on when they were younger.

I've also had a few weird experiences. Since we're sharing here's mine:
The first one was in college. The dorm I was living in had a story regarding a girl who got drunk at a party, pushed the button for the freight elevator, opened the door and fell down the elevator shaft before the elevator arrived. Friends of mine had a room next to where the shaft reportedly was and claimed to hear weird noises in it at night. The university claimed there was no elevator in that building, but a group of us had already gotten the head advisor to open the locked door and had seen that it was indeed an elevator shaft. One day I was sitting in my friend's room(next to the elevator shaft) chatting with one of the girls who lived there. We both heard a knock on the door. She said "come in". The door opened and no one was there. She checked the hall, and saw no one, we didn't hear any one running down the hall, no giggling and no one confessed to tricking us. After that, every time I walked past the door to the elevator shaft, the light in front of the elevator shaft door would go off. It would turn back on after I said "hello Elizabeth" (which is what I called the "ghost") Then the light in front of my dorm room started doing the same thing. Another time, the head advisor and two hall advisors were downstairs in the basement working on a project together. One girl complained about how hot she was. The lights went off. After a couple of seconds the lights came back on and the coke machine released three cans of coke.

My second experience was at my mother-in-law's house that she used to live in in New Orleans. People had reported various weird experiences here. It was an old what they call shotgun style house. Basically, a long hall ran the length of the house and rooms were lined up one after the other. Each room had 2 doors, one into the hall and one into the next room. Above each door was a glass transom (a small rectangular window that opened to help with ventilation, in case any one is unfamiliar with the term). Hubby and I had gone to spend the night at her house (This was before we had children). It was pretty late. We had been talking and getting organized before getting ready for bed. I was sitting on the bed facing the outer wall and DH was behind me, putting some things away. The curtains were open and the window was reflecting the room so I could see everything behind me, almost as clearly as looking in a mirror. I noticed a black and white picture of a man in an old fashioned jacket with a stiff looking collar. He had a small mustache. The picture was hanging above the door leading into the hall. I thought, "That's an interesting picture. I don't remember seeing it before. What an odd place to hang a picture...Wait a minute, isn't there a...transom....above...the...door..." And just like that, whatever I saw wasn't there anymore. Just the transom above the door. "Um, ..." I said and something must have been in my voice, because DH answered, "WHAT did you see?" So I described what I saw and looked up at the transom. There was nothing there. We both walked over to the door into the hall. "Do you want to open it?" he said. "Not really, but I guess we'd better." So we opened the door into the pitch black hall. At the end of the hall, we both saw the rough shape of a person, kind of glittery, like when you stare at something bright too long then look away, there's an after image. It faded away, and the hall was dark.
