Hi there, I'm new to letterboxing but when I read the initial post in this thread I was absolutely thrilled to run into a fellow Doctor Who fan :) Blink is the best episode to start with as an introduction! I've been a fan for over a year now and I will admit to sitting in front of my TV crying my eyes out. "Eleven's the best; you'll cry your eyes out."

Thank you, Rocklun. I appreciate this. Twice I have been surprised on the trail by men in full camo gear with their weapons. It is good to be reminded when this time of year comes around.

I bet, if you charted it, you would see a remarkable correlation between "when WNY Looney Bins were abandoned and patients loosed upon society," and "the rise of WNY Letterboxing"... just sayin'.

Thank you all so much for the wealth of information! This has been most helpful... and a bit of an insight into the o.c.d. tendencies of some letterboxers... ;) (P.S. I belong to this group)

After reading some of the responses, I went online and found a few local sources, so I'll be picking some of them up before I send my LTCs to my swap hostess.

Thanks again!

And if you talk like a pirate at Krispy Keame they might give you a free doughnut. Come in full costume and you get a dozen.

i've been to Portland once. We flew all night from VT, landed in the morning, went directly to the conference, stayed there for four excrutiatingly long days, got weirded out by some interesting "extracurricular activities" suggested by the conference organizers, left on Sunday afternoon directly after the conference and never have been back.

i am pretty sure any letterboxing trip has GOT to be better than that. yup.

And there are a LOT of you in the PNW on my stalker list. unfortunately, you're all sort of spread out.

I would love to come and maybe can some day but there is a very special trip I am trying to arrange for Labor Day timeframe 2014 and I can't do both. I really hate that 4-letter word that gets in the way of everything...don't "they" know LBing is the priority not work?

The town of Chattahoochee, FL has a looney bin -- and it's not abandoned, it's in full operation. The citizens of Chattahoochee say that their town has no more crazy people than any other town, they just have the good sense to keep theirs locked up!

It's. . .um, let's see. 40 to 81 (ALL of 81) to 88, to 87. yeah, that's about right. a number of fun boxes along the way, if you'd like a list. . .
