Well had knee surgery in late February. Been in PT for about 2 months, but finished with that last week. Overall knees are better and I'm back at work on my feet the whole time. I work part-time in a coffee/sandwich shop. Most weeks I work 15-25 hours.
I've been doing a lot of carving lately. I find that it relaxes me. I've been in a couple of inches swap this year.
As far as actually letterboxing...I've done very little this year. Would like to do more, but life is a bit busy these days. I rather sit at home with family and carve than to be away from everyone.
Hope everyone has an safe and awesome summer!!

Well, I'm not in NC, but I've been busy with graduation party planning and de-cluttering my home for the 30+ guests coming over.

Next week, it will be back to normal, and then we will be carving, planting, and looking for boxes again.
Postcards for my sick step mom

I didn't realize how sick she was. But she is very ill. She's been in and out of the hospital. I've set up a tracker if anybody would like to send her a postcard with some kind of stamp art on it. They know a little bit about letter boxing but I think she would really get a kick out of getting some postcards from some of us. She loves cards so much. This reminds me my of grandfather who recently passed away. I had a tracker for him a few years ago. He kept all of his cards in a ziplock bag and carried them around with him. I don't know if she'll do that but I know she'll be so excited to see love coming her way. Here is a link to the tracker.
Thanks x1000

I had a lull where all I did was some LTC stuff, mostly because I was working 6 days a week for a while.

I made it to the BrockBrood/Honey Pot Mini Meet and got to box a tad. I missed PAL day mostly due to work followed by severe storms in the area that afternoon but I still planted 4 boxes this past weekend to make up for it. Now we're preparing for a trip to Baltimore and I've been arranging clues for the trip as well as for around town.... Also checked my local hitchhiker hostel, swapped out all the hitchhikers to get them traveling with me, and have prepared 3 boxes to possibly plant somewhere between here and there. Pugs wants me to prep more than that but I don't think that is going to happen considering I haven't even packed anything other than camo boxes for this trip!

Also, my road trip project will be preparing bags for Super Hedge Hoggie to use in the Disney event....my pre-trip errands yesterday were to get extra dog food and biscuits so the dog sitter has plenty to divvy out, more baggies, and multiple rolls of duct tape :)

I went to the Wet, Wet, and Wild, but mostly Wet West Va event. There was one series that was planted for the event that was a ONE hour drive from the event, hiked for 3 hours in on and off rain, rubbed a blister on my foot that I am now nursing.

Back home and enjoying life with my family. Hope to log my WV finds today.

I'm also into the "Roxboro Rocks " hide and seek fun.

Oceanwinds do you know of an easy spot to drive up to Flat river where I could gather some rocks?

No, we will be somewhere in WV Friday night. We are leaving after we get off work that Friday, so we will drive about 5 hours. That leaves about 4 hours to drive to the event Saturday morning!

What are the metrics by which Box Rankings get tabulated? I'm curious to see where my newer boxes (3 months old, a dozen finders) stack up, but as yet they are not listed.

We missed you! It is hard to believe that the Mininsky Bug is almost five. Time seems to fly when you are having fun. I hope to see your family on the trail or at a local gathering soon. Selfishly, I am also looking forward to any new boxes that you create.

Haha - me too!! And with the 30++ guests. On top of decluttering, we added in a new kitchen floor and painting! Graduation not until June 10th but after that I'll refocus on letterboxing out the wild, rather than through the mail!

If you would be interested in attending an event, the 2017 Great Lakes Gathering - "One for the Books" will be held in the Milwaukee area (Delafield) on June 24th. That would be a great place to meet up with some local boxers and find lots of great letterboxes!

The Emma & Hook romance is my favorite part of the show. I hope that Emma comes back on occasion. I have watched the series from the start but am usually behind as I do not have cable and just finished this season.

I would have rather them stopped at the happy ending versus the spin at the end. Hopefully it ends up being a good show still.

Off the top of my head, I don't remember. I think they become eligible for ranking after three or four months, though. It changes occasionally, though. But keep in mind that the rankings are only run once per month so if your box missing the ranking period by one day, it basically has to wait almost an entire extra month to get included again.
