St. Louis Gather in January

Just signed up for the St. Louis Gather in January! Boxing in a new state!!!!!

That being said, I’d like to find boxes in IL, IN, KY too. How brutal will it be to find boxes? Is there anyone who knows boxing along the Route 64 corridor then down to KY and back to STL? It will be winter after all.....

Thx for any info you can share!

Brutal? It depends …

When the time comes, you will be able to find boxes, even with some snow on the ground, or else your survival instinct will remind you that keeping all your fingers and toes is a higher priority than stamping. It just depends on the winter.

The weather changes week to week/day to day. In Jan. It might be in the 50’s or 20’s, snow or none!

Oh yea... how fun! LOL

Hoping for decent weather, as I will be flying in! As for snow, I have boots I can bring, so as long as the snow is below my knees, I should be good!

I believe all the rest areas on 64, in Indiana have boxes.

Bring your biggest boots and thickest coat, and maybe that will guarantee balmy, 50 degree weather!

If you want to find great boxes in those 3 states, you would be advised to shoot over to the Evansville, IN area and find boxes there and in the adjoining states nearby. The letterboxers in that vicinity are very active and have planted many interesting boxes. In fact, when you attend the St Louis event, you will meet several of them who have signed up to come.

Your boxes are as mysterious as you are! I hope that you are planning some more letterbox surprises.

Thank you for all the kind wishes and words! Letterboxers are the best! Yes, I am a goal setter. For the AQ 10th I wanted to find 10 letterboxes on that day. Even with social distancing, I managed to find 10 plus 1 in an urban setting. They were all special finds.
