It would be really helpful as we all begin to plan our Grateful trips if old site boxes that will not be available this year are retired so they will drop off of the search results.

Thanks much!!

I second this a hundred percent! It's my first year coming and I've no idea what I'm doing. Anything to make it easier is great.

I don't have administration capabilities to alter boxes listed/planted by others, but I will do my best to contact folks who have defunct listings and/or try to get administrator assistance if possible.

I’ll be bringing this letterbox with me again this year.
I find the stories of Phyllis Latour Doyle and Molly “Old Mom” Doyle particularly interesting.

Not that I'm trying to Shanghai your post, but do other states have them as well? I've been looking for them online and cant seem to find ones that pertain to the states I am visiting.

Yes they do. It can take a bit of investigating to find them.

Start by asking on the board for the state you are interested in and on the Patch board.

The 6 'states' I have patches for did NOT already have patches. Pennsylvania doesn't have a patch, but supposedly one is being worked on. Personally I'm on the hunt for the Colorado patch at the moment.

Dear GLBs,

We want to thank you all, the organizers and attendees of the U.S. Blues # 13 event, for making that weekend a very happy one for all of us! We are indeed very grateful to have met so many warm hearted people and to have participated in all the fun activities and hikes!

We were so occupied at the event, that we forgot to click any pictures. But we have uploaded the pics of our tie-dye shirts. They turned out great! Thank you zess! Hope to cross paths with you all again! Wishing you very many happy days!

I'm trying to identify a site stamp that my notes attribute to site 306. It's a cute dog with an uncle sam hat and 'waving a flag with his tail'. Do you know the listing for this? Thanks much

Thanks to everyone involved in the 13th event. Always lots of fun and great stamps.
I am trying to find the name of 1 stamp. It was located on Grateful Row. It had pink ink included in the box. It was a Grateful Bear flag stamp. Any help would be "greatly" appreciated. Thanks.
