We had a fantastic time at our first Boxtoberfest! Everyone was so welcoming and the stamps/clue were fantastic. Perfect number of boxes to still allow time to make new friends, do some exchanges, and just sit and talk for a few minutes. Very excited that we were also able to take advantage of the historical sites while there! That was a wonderful bonus to the weekend - we really enjoyed having that time and experience great places in american history. Thank you!!

I'm flying up from Florida for it!

Well..... TECHNICALLY, I'm flying up for the week of Thanksgiving since my son has the entire week off from school. However, I paid the extra $150 so I could fly in on Friday night instead of Saturday.

That counts, right?

Acadia - Northeast Harbor Trail Map
Board: Region: Northeast
Oct 22, 2018 2:35pm
Just got back from Bar Harbor/Acadia Nat'l Park, and while there stumbled upon the 2017 Northeast Harbor Trail Map brochure at the Northeast Harbor Golf Course, which has a trailhead right there at the parking lot (hubby golfed while I hiked). These trails are not within the national park boundaries, so it's presumably legal to plant boxes. The map doesn't appear to be online, so I scanned my mangled copy and uploaded here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/g2ak2jfw5lgeb1u/northeast%20harbor%20trail%20map%202017%20%282%29.jpg?dl=0

I know of only one box on all these trails, and the trails are gorgeous. All the trail junctions had routered signs with the trail names. All were very well maintained.

I hiked the trail from the golf course to Norumbega (14), and then the Reservoir Trail (6) to the Skiddoo Trail(9) to the Asticou Stream Trail (10) (that one had a box and was gorgeous). That one ends on Route 3 at the Azalea Garden, and a short walk along the sidewalk brings you to the Asticou Terraces and Thuya Garden.
Help! Urgent!

Anyone have a picture of Lockwench's signature stamp? I will need it texted to me. My copy is in a logbook which is literally in the middle of my FULL garage (like floor to ceiling full, since we are living in temp housing while our new house is being built).

Get back to me ASAP..... If you have it and already know my cell phone number, please just text me a pic. If you don't have my cell phone number, e-mail me here on AQ and I will send it to you.

Thanks!

Okay... Christopher found a jar on my back porch... did someone leave it for me? No name, no note? But it looks yummy... but if I don't know where it came from... my parents taught me better that to eat things you don't know where it came from :(

Just an FYI:

I will NOT have any of my PT's at Soup's On. My suitcases were too full with waterproof boots and hiking boots to get my PT's in there.

Well our theme this year is “winter” and for the first time we’ve got snow. There is 4” of dense snow on the trails but we are moving ahead with plans and will be ready if you are.

A lengthier message with more logistics info was sent out to those signed up for the event. If you are interested in joining us, please check the event page recent notices.

Sorry, it's my fault. I stole the nice weather for my event last month!

I thought everyone was making me feel at home. I figured everyone thought I would miss the white stuff so they ordered it up for me.

(FYI: I officially do not miss the cold weather! I’m ready to head back to the sunshine state!)

Hello All!
I will be doing some training in Westford, MA from Feb 4th-8th (with a possible hanging-around-for-letterboxing on Sat Feb 9th, if there is some interest).

I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to meet up with some of my Northeastern Friends, if anyone wants to do a Meet-n-Greet...
