Slalom water skiing stamp needed!
Board: Stamp Swap
Dec 16, 2017 1:48am
Thread
In my area of Florida, there are lots of ponds and lakes -- and they are mostly moccasin-infested mudholes. So there's this guy whose thrill in life is slalom water skiing. He had been skiing on somebody's private lake but that agreement fizzled. He's clearly a wealthy guy, because he owns a business in town and already owned a couple hundred acres of hunting land. Then he came up with a bright idea: He'd dig his own skiing lake on his own land! He soon found that if he had planned to dam up a creek or otherwise disturb some existing body of water, he'd be in for a world of paperwork and permits -- but if you want to dig a lake where there was no water before, well, that's easy, very little permitting required! So he did just that.

It's called Lake 38, and it's on 161 just a few miles NE of Quincy, FL. It's on private land; serious skiers contact this guy for permission to use it. He even built a guest house for them to stay in.

I need a stamp of a slalom water skier to plant just outside this private property, probably along 161 somewhere. My own carving style (airplanes, cars, and fishing lures) doesn't lend itself to this type of stamp, so I'm posting it here and asking for someone else to provide one. If you're up for it, please drop me an AQ-mail. If I get more than one offer, we'll come up with some way to decide who does the carving.

Thanks!

I am hosting a bday LBing event in the fall for PopoBullyGirl's 50th birthday.

I am looking for some help with the stamp carving. I have a tracker set up with ideas, let me know if you are willing and able to help. I'd like the stamps by early August to give me time to plant.

Here's the tracker https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.html?trackerId=9671

Stamp series swap

Now that the LLBean event is over - I have a few series that need new homes. I'd like to swap them for a series from someone else that needs a new home.

I won't be able to send stamps out right away (going on vacation) but if you are interested in swapping a series (mine are mostly about Maine and some need explaining) - drop me a PM

The Bellamy Bridge Ghost

The Bellamy Bridge is about 1-1/2 hours west of me. I've never been there, but SWMBO and I are thinking of making a day trip before the weather gets too hot and buggy. We were thinking of going yesterday, actually, but reportedly the area is highly flood-prone and it had just rained hard here the day before so we decided to postpone it.

So, is anyone up for carving a stamp for me to plant while I'm there? There are already four geocaches in the vicinity, but as far as I can tell no letterboxes yet.

Here's everything you need to know:

Short version: Apparently the ghost is a burning bride. I dunno how you make a stamp of that, and it's definitely not my style.

Thanks!

Mystery themed stamps needed!
Board: Stamp Swap
Aug 10, 2018 5:05am
Would love to borrow or plant some stamps for an upcoming mystery event. These boxes will be put out for the day (or can be planted in the surrounding area if you want after event).
Any mystery themed stamps, Nancy Drew, Sherlock, Hardy Boys, missing/unidentified things... you pick, anything you think is mysterious. No logbook required or planter pouch/container. But if you want to send one, that's fine.
Event is in November, would need stamps by October. Hope you can help a boxer out!
Message me if you have any questions!

Thanks!

I have two events-in-a-box:
Color Box (about 50 stamps) has visited NY, VA, IN, CO, CA, and MA
Reindeer Roundup (about 20 stamps) has visited MO, VA, MA, IN, CO, and PA

Are there any experienced hosts that are interested in borrowing these events to host in your area? Glad to answer questions via AQmail with more information & details --

Otter Stamp?
Board: Stamp Swap

Thread
Would someone care to carve a stamp of an Otter for me to plant?

This plant will be an indoor box located in Rotary Park.

No particular time frame but we would like to have planted by New Years 2019. I've started working on the box today, at the earliest it will be ready by Thanksgiving weekend.

Just the stamp is needed, we will take care of backing, logbook, cozy and box, and regarding the stamp size, the smaller the stamp the better.

Thank you!

Hi all - For the past several years I have hosted a New Years weekend drop-in event at my home for some winter boxing. The theme is always a review of the past year. The folks attending love to see stamps from away, and not just my carving.

If you would like to help out by carving a stamp (or two, or three, or...) please check out the following trackers:

(Stamps won't be returned. Instead, after the event a time capsule traveling event box will be created in order to share the year with folks across the country.)
