Sarah, I will plant for you! Power Plant challenge or not, I find places where I think "There should be a letterbox there."

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 that I'm saving for group boxing trips, or that have just confounded me. I'm pretty sure stone mountains claim to highest density was more true ten years ago than it is today- but the density is high enough that I found a handful of boxes before I ever read a single clue...in some parts of the park it's like every 100 yards there is or once was a box.

Any chance you guys know of a box along the route from Idaho to Sacramento? It looks like it goes through Jordan Valley, Danner, Arock, Rome. I did a search but did not find an Oregon box along that route. I am limited because we are driving with the family. Hoping for a drive by so I can at least say I found a box in Oregon.

I’m leaving a box behind in mcCall, Idaho...

Sarah - just saw this and think it's an excellent idea! We've been worried about the state of letterboxing here in the Charlotte area. We need more boxes and boxers here! So count us in and we'll make Destiny3 participate too! We just planted 3 zombie boxes in Charlotte over the summer and it looks like Hurricane Flo got 2 of them. Never in a million years did we think the boxes we planted would get washed away so I guess we better plan for these 1000 year floods when we plant!

I don't know, I think there'd be way too many muggles. Mapsurfer box is gone, too.

Since this tracker is filled, is there a chance participants can add their recipes in the clues of their box?

It looks like your route takes you very close to Ontario Oregon? There are 4 driveby boxes there, found in 2018.

Anybody carving any turkeys today?

I'm talking stamps, what did you think? ;-)

I've already got a turkey stamp planted in the wild. I'm asking if anyone else has or is planning on doing one today.

I cannot find any mention of the mapsurfer box in either AQ or LbNA. Is it a premium member's only box?

The last couple of times I went to Mackinac Islands have been after Labor Day. In October, most shops and hotels were closed and it was cold. In September, the shops and hotels were open, the weather was cool, and there were few people. No crowds. No families. I didn't have to worry about muggles. I was able to letterbox to my heart's content. When letterboxing in the summer, though, muggles were a big problem.

But the island is still somewhat expensive, even in the shoulder season.
