Bon Echo only sold himself out to Michigan. I want to throw all our votes to Niagara Falls and we can do both sides of the border at once. The boxes might be a little wet.

So if Rhode Island wins, I guess I can host.
If it doesn't win, I'll host a pity party anyway!

You can hire Puddles.

I'd like to cast my vote:
2 votes for Colorado
3 votes for Michigan
4 votes for Rhode Island (I'm sure CT would help)

11 votes for all of the great Maine event people to lead the charge - after LLBean, L&B will be nothing for that group.

14 votes to just use 2023 Grateful Letterboxing event as L&B XXV
(wouldn't even need to add any new boxes - all of the boxes from all of the grateful years would do it - might give me a chance to catch up.....)

So they are saying rain and wind for Friday night and rain for early Saturday morning. Forecasters are saying it will clear by midmorning. Dress accordingly.

We planted a 10 stamp series that will be permanent in its location.

Hope to see you all on Saturday.

We give three votes for Colorado (contemplating driving to Michigan or Rhode Island makes this driver twitch a bit and the kids announce: tapping out!).

Very interesting how you Letterboxers find ways to vote, then vote multiple times!!! I like the enthusiasm.....though illegal.

Today is the the final day, so post your vote in the poll and lets see who the lame duck winner is.

I'll vote:
Colorado is first choice
Ohio second
Michigan is on there as I'd like to visit the coast
New England or Alaska would be a lot harder to get to, so those are maybes, as they are on my bucket list.

WOW, what a finish. Lots of last minute brides.....we mean votes. It is official. Looks like a 3 way tie.

Colorado, Ohio and Michigan

So up to y'all to fight it out and put your best case forward on who should host LBXXV. We have done our part, but will be there wherever it is to enjoy. Good luck. Vacation time!!!

But wait, it looks like there was an error in that post. It should have read:

Colorado Virginia, Ohio, and Michigan

Glad I caught that!

Dang, you just outed yourself. Now everyone knows you are a Renegade.....maybe no one will read your post.

Didn't you get the super secret memo that Virginia was disqualified for lack of any letterboxers in the state.

This requires marriage to vote???

(Are you sure you want to mention brides and a 3-way in the same post?)

Following a tip from The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, I learned of a Virginia letterboxer who has planted in the tradition of James Madison and J.E.B. Stuart, in the time of the Mid-Summer Solstice, and in the area of the 9/11 Memorial - Imagine! She has fearlessly confronted Angry Rednecks Against Litter. I met her myself in Texas, and recently there has been Another Sighting in Spotsylvania.

Her credentials include 1,136 plants, 5,821 finds, four purple diamonds, and 18 events hosted. I do believe she meets, and dare I say, exceeds the qualifications to host Live & Breathe XXV.

No worries about it ever being in Maine... most people in the country don't think there are roads north of Portland, let alone running water, cell service and viable locations :)

We're safe... even if we could pull off a kick a** L&B ;)

Hats (and snow boots) off to everyone who contributed wonderful stamps.

Nosox, Memere and Wendy, thank you for another Soup's On event.

Bossman, thank you.

Are there any more gracious hosts for an event that this crew?
They thought of everything.

Now, off to bed for me.

A job well done by our hosts!!! The stamps were amazing and the entire day was so much fun. Alittle bit of snow on the ground didn't stop us all from getting inky and most definitely wet!!! It was great to see old friends again and meet so many new friends. Lots and lots of soup was enjoyed by all. A HUGE thank you to our Souper Uber drivers for driving all of us back and forth from the parking area all day!!! Definitely an event to remember and come back to again!!!

I'm sure I'm in a long line of grateful event goers. Everything the organizers did to prepare and THEN make last minute changes to accommodate us is unforgettable. I esp. like the creativity of Soup Uber drivers. And a HUGE thank you to whoever the first intrepid trekkers were that trudged thru and made footprints for us to follow. You know who you are.
