I just watched it on bbc America for free. There was a bit more commercials than I'd like, but hey, it's free.

I made a hand made fleece blanket that was related to the event theme, which happened to be Disney. People loved it!

I opted to get it thru Amazon because I don’t subscribe to cable television and therefore don’t have access to BBC America.

At our last event someone made a couple of small scrapbooks, they were nice. Handmade log books are always a great choice.

On the flip side, I had our state LB patch embroidered onto various items (an apron, duffel bags, small backpack - really it could be anything) I have also sewn fleece blankets for a few raffles in the past.

For L&B I donated a hammock

Reading over the list made me sit and think what would I really like to get in a raffel. After some time I decided that it would be really nice to win a Jeep 4-wheel drive to get all of those off the beaten path boxes.

Very brief.

***SPOILERS AHEAD***

There isn't really much in the article about geocaching itself, but there is even less about letterboxing. Its conclusion is that either is motivation to get outside and connect with people.

There are some boxes that even a Jeep won't get you to. I won't reveal where it is in Utah, but you can't get to I, Eevil in a Jeep. The closest you can drive can also be reached by a Geo Metro.

Agree that it’s a pretty skimpy article. Still, anything that breathes life into new potential letterboxers should be welcome. This reminds me that ECP and I were contacted by the Santa Cruz paper ‘Good Times’ for an article on geocaching (over 8 years ago already! [link below]). Too bad this reporter wasn’t as equally motivated and resourceful.

Sorry, I should have mentioned bbc America online.
It's on the Internet. I don't have any cable/satellite or even an antina anymore.

Interesting. When I went to bbc America online it said to watch full episodes you needed to name your cable provider and if your plan included bbc. I wonder if it’s like what they’ve done with other shows. You get the first and maybe rescind episode and then you have to pay

I didn’t try to cut with the Cricut. Cricut cuts 2mm and the rubber is 6mm I’m not sure the rubber would fit in the machine. But since the depth is so much less than the size of the rubber it could work. I’m going to transfer the image tonight but I’m pretty pleased with the design.
Otter Stamp?

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!

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?

Hello all! My friends BAMM and 4 J's and I had an absolute blast hosting GLG this summer.... Sooo, I am entertaining the idea of hosting a yearly Midwest Letterboxing Event (MLE). I am thinking in April or May at a State Park in Indiana next year. Soooo, let me have your feed back...GO!

I looked through the current list of events, and don't see any close by, but that could change. It's a little far for me, but the company is so good, I'd certainly consider it.
