It's quiet .... too quiet! Ooooo, this was one of my favorite finds, second only to Rubba Bugga! It would've been my top favorite, but the excruciating noise there was almost painful!!! Either way, both carvings are worth searching out... IF you can d...

I'd like to liven things up by saying that the very first letterbox planted in the U.S. was the Prayer Rock box I humbly disagree

I agree! I'd like to liven things up by saying that the very first letterbox planted in the U.S. was the Prayer Rock box, but I'm sure that won't generate any discussions. Snopes: WRONG! Correct Answer: The United States Post Office Department began...

That’s because I’m not boxing anymore:-) So true. And now that I think about it, Wanda and Pete have probably found most of them, just not logged them.

I saw a postal worker driving his truck out of a cemetery today! What could he have been doing? Dead letter office? A post mortem?

I saw a postal worker driving his truck out of a cemetery today! What could he have been doing? Was he working the graveyard shift? Maybe he thought his mom was buried alive there and he was trying to letter out?

For those of you who have boxes at Bonnie Springs, it’s been sold to a developer. He plans to build 20 homes and a motel while “keeping the land as natural as possible” but no plans have been released to show which boxes will be in peril. I assume all...

For larger baggies we use ZipLoc freezer bags because they're tough. For smaller baggies we use craft bags because they're cheap. The other day in a Wally World I found another type of tiny baggie, a pill bag sold in the pharmacy area. It looks to b...

I'm currently in a micro-postal ring; a postal sent in a regular letter envelope. I have done regular postals (the Mystery Postals in particular) and LTC trackers. I like these kinds of letterboxing because, especially during the winter, there isn't...

It looks to be about 2" x 3" but the closure is along the long side rather than the short side as on craft bags. It also has a place on it to write on it. In a package of 50 it comes out to less than three cents per baggie. That's what I use as spare l...

It’s not just the weather, it can be lack of available boxes in general. We have found all of the (few) physical letterboxes in our area and all of the ones in the surrounding areas. The Central Valley of California is kind of a no-man’s land of letter...

A while back I ended up with a slew of these pill baggies. Being the letterboxer at the time in the house they were given to me with the thought that I might be able to use them. One of the projects I did with them was make some hitchhikers like this o...

When I first started letterboxing, my kids were young, and we had just moved to NY due to my husband's job. It was a new place that we wanted to explore and we knew we would only be there for a few years, so letterboxing was great for that, and NY is...

used to until postal rates became so high and too many were ending up in black holes... I do LTCs when the stamps warrant it - but hardly ever join a swap. While we don't do lots of winter boxing - we do some - and I carve for many events in the futur...

Jeopardy had a commercial so I checked on A.Q. and saw that lost sailor had found one of my boxes out in the middle of nowhere while he is on a long cross-country trip. I sent an AQ message asking if he got the bonus box as well and went back out to c...

You planted a bonus box thirty miles from the parent box?

A few of my students have stayed after school to carve sig stamps and learn about letterboxing. One of them has planted two boxes in the neighborhood, but what really made my day was the way he asked his letterboxing friend to our middle school dance.

The definition on AQ for a Bonus Box is "similar to a regular letterbox, except that the clue is planted in another nearby letterbox." I always thought NEARBY meant within a very short walk. What do others think??

I always thought NEARBY meant within a very short walk. What do others think?? Nearby is relative. There are places in the western US where 30 miles down the road is still the middle of no where. My wife and I stayed at a KOA once outside of Chugwater,...

The longest bonus I found was Mission: Impossible, half the stamp was in Redding, the other half in Wallingford.
