There are different ideas in night boxing. One fun one is to make the hunt scary. Don't follow a trail but rather bushwhack through the woods from start to finish. Plant some rubber snakes, rats and spiders along the route, including hanging from...

Install a burglar alarm in the lid of the box, preferably one that sounds like a rattlesnake. Nope, I would have a heart attack! One box I will never go after!

Hidden in an open field in pouches with reflective tape, everyone uses flashlights. Stagger them out in groups of 4 onto the field with a very a visual map of clues. This is if you're looking for inexpensive and easy way of doing it.

We are members of the Dartmoor Letterboxing 100 Club, which publishes the catalogue, etc. However, we haven't been active since moving to the north of Scotland 13 years ago. If you're planning a trip, it's well worth getting in touch for a copy of the...

I have 109 permanent traditional boxes planted since November 1. I don’t know if I want to pay for a path tag, either, to be honest. It’s exciting when it’s a prize, but I’ve won the opportunity to buy stuff many times. (In fact, I have several emails...

I just saw this. Aw, do not continue the challenge. (My vote.) If you want to keep it going, maybe make a new challenge with a different name -- maybe even different goals. That was it will not cheapen the success of earning the prizes for those wh...

Using reflective tape or paint, then hide them in trees as well as on the ground.

We have a 16 box series a mere two hours outside of London by train......I'm just sayin'

We've used glow sticks in peanut butter jars with the stamps.

I thought that the prize was that the letterboxing community as a whole benefits from all the additional plants we now have to find! The patch and/or path tag are a fun marker of the event. Buying them in quantity is expensive - glad to contribute. I'...

Thank you, Paper Trail, for saying what I was thinking. This challenge has encouraged me to clear my desk of 88 stamps and logbooks that have been sitting around for years. Now the fun begins as I get to begin carving guilt free again. I, too, am ha...

I am happy to have more stamps to seek. There are not a lot of people in my area, yet I can occasionally travel with my husband when he goes out of town to work where there are more boxes planted. I wonder if we will be told how many boxes total were...

Whoa! Maybe you could call the Power Plant Challenge the Spring Cleaning Planting Challenge. 😉 I imagine that it is a good feeling to get them all out into the wild and out of your home.

See I kinda agree with RIClimber and Coffeespoons. The prize is that we all get more boxes. But I've planted 142 boxes, driven over 20 hours to plant in places where they will actually be found, and it's a considerable cost for plastic, bags, and pink...

Others get the "Prize" of more boxes to find. I get the "Prize" of 100+ more boxes to maintain. I'm not in it for the "Prize" - I just want to beat PiggyJaunt!!

I have a non-Dartmoor question: is there anywhere aside from AQ where I should be looking for clues to boxes in the UK (ie London)?

I will be in London the end of August to leave on a cruise from Dover and would be very interested if anyone has success in London. Thanks

I found the register number from the original planting in 2004 here. Is it still on the register? Thanks for looking! WW

I was there this past summer and looked up letterbox hybrids on geocaching.com. I was out in the country and with people who weren't going to drive far just for me to find a letterbox. It was the one way I found to easily locate possible letterboxes ne...

I’m sad to report that after a long and happy life of eleven years (110 lizard years) Larry Lizard has left his literary home at Nanini Library into permanent rest. His demise was likely the unfortunate result of a guest skimmer helping with shelf clea...
