So. This Pig is crazy and is thinking about building their own Mecca. How many stamps would Piggy have to plant in a location to knock Stone Mountain off the list as the place with the highest concentration? Where would be a good place on the upper ea...

As a new boxer from Stone Mountain I have to warn you- I have only just started planting, and while I have not planted at Stone Mountain Park- because of its density... I would love an excuse to do so... so I'm gonna take that as a friendly challenge.

I’d suggest CT since it already has, I believe, the most boxes per capita/per square foot of all the NE states. Warrior Woman right next door in RI

Yes I love Connecticut, but Stone Mountain is a location, not a state. So I'm looking for a location big enough to handle that kind of density while not being spread out over an entire state :) Any suggestions of parks you think fit the bill?

I’m flashing back to The Mansfield (CT) Monster Mash of ?? 2004 ?? There were hundreds and hundreds of boxes planted in Mansfield for that event (think on the scale of L&B). I’d be curious to see how many boxes are still there - perhaps a good starting...

Why not plant in Virginia? Plant them...we will come!

I agree that Virginia State parks would be an awesome location. The ones in the lower part of VA have very few boxes and most have been abandoned. The great thing about LBing in VA State parks is that they welcome boxes with no charge to plant th...

Welp, I did a quick search of the boxes from Mansfield Monster Mash in 2004 LISTED HERE IN AQ (I did not check lbna) and, ta da! there is a grand total of TWO (2) that are still active. Warrior Woman sitting down and shutting up

Fall River, MA. The SE Mass Bioreserve is a 15,000 acre forest with at least a hundred miles of trails. http://www.thetrustees.org/assets/documents/places-to-visit/trailmaps/Bioreserve_trail_map.pdf If you could get everything planted by late Septem...

... If you consider a single box and a 1 ft² area, that is a pretty high density per square foot. It gets twice as high if you plant letterboxes on top of each other. So, since we don't want this small of an area considered, what do people think shou...

... Huh, imagine that!

So, how do I arrange to get an area like this? (For statistical purposes only.)
by wassamatta uProfileContactLogbookNote

... Ah, Grasshopper... to achieve such a worthy feat requires the rare combination of stealth, persistence, and thinking outside the box (but just barely outside it).

And where do I get those statistics for an area that I want to test?
by Trailhead TessieProfileContactLogbookNote

Roughly how many boxes are there at Stone Mountain, and how big is the area?

Stone Mountain Park is 3,200 sq acres, about 3,000 of which are accessible. There are currently atleast a hundred active boxes (boxes I have physically touched since 6/18) plus another 250 or so I'm still trying to figure out or in parts of the part t...
