Looking for a Challenge?

Hello all,

If you are looking for quite a challenge, consider an exhilarating hunt for an 18-year old box. Old Betsey took us to a great place, even if the views weren't what they used to be. I suppose that's why nobody has stopped by in over fourteen years. We made a return trip up that hill today... the historic dried out logbook pages needed to be reunited with that original stamp. Perhaps some other folks will want to head up there to put their own John Hancock in the new logbook.

Best,
Nairon

Not a bad thought, but you might have to go further back than that. Wayback, one might say...

I work at a college. And found a letterbox in the trash. I'm hoping to find its owner or owners. Please let me know.
Small green duct tape baggie. With ELVIS LIVES written on it.
Was located in Amherst Massachusetts

Thanks for taking the time to sign up and try to get the letterbox back to its owner! The MA letterboxers will try to see who is the owner and contact you!

Thanks again for saving this letterbox from the trash!

Looks like it may be a Hitchhiking letterbox. This is one that travels from inside one letterbox to the inside of another. Unless someone else found better information (bonus box etc)

You've already been very helpful! Is it possible for you to mail it to a local letterboxer?

If its owner isn't found, you can mail it to me and I'll make sure it gets back into circulation (maybe in michigan.....)

If you're willing to send, you can put the whole thing in the mail to me.

I heard that on Lynn Fells parkway there is a mile or so of houses that all have good holiday decorations. Can anyone confirm this for me, please?

Thanks so much to CoffeeSpoons for a great event at the Tewksbury Library today! A nice low key get together in a warm and cozy spot on a chilly day!
It was great to see old friends and the stamps were just beautiful. A great opportunity to see new boxers learn about our hobby! CoffeeSpoons put together a wonderful clue book and her presentation was fun and full of great information. Thanks again for all the fun!

Thank you and all of the Tewksbury Library staff for allowing us to play inside on a chilly day.
I wondered what the regular library patrons thought of our curious activity.

To the new boxers, Welcome.
This is just the beginning of the fun you have to look forward to as you play the game.

Hello All!
I will be doing some training in Westford, MA from Feb 4th-8th (with a possible hanging-around-for-letterboxing on Sat Feb 9th, if there is some interest).

I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to meet up with some of my Northeastern Friends, if anyone wants to do a Meet-n-Greet...

Do you know roughly what time your training ends, Wassa? I work pretty close to Westford and could meet you for dinner, depending on which evenings you'd be available.

This JUST came up today, and really all I know is "4th - 8th, Westford MA". But I suspect there will be a "group dinner" probably Monday night, and probably Thursday night. So Tues or Wed is more LIKELY to be best. I can guarantee Friday is good though! And, I think I'm booking my flight back on Sunday, so I'll likely have Saturday free as well.

But... I hope to have more firm answers in the next couple of days... sorry for the unintentional current vagueness!

No worries! Please keep us posted.

Looking at my schedule, given that Monday and Thursday are out for you, Wednesday night would be best for me at this point. Getting together on Saturday would probably work for me, too.

I'm interested in meeting you!

If you list something, there is a 90% chance I will come - especially if its the weekend and no 495 rush hour traffic to deal with! It's a bit over an hour drive up there, or 4+ hours with traffic...

I can sense a "mini-midi-major-munchie-meet n greet" sorta thing brewing here! Any thoughts on where we can gather a gaggle of moose-friendly letterboxers in the Westford area? First place that comes to my mind is Chili's in Lowell. Please chime in with other ideas! Saturday is preferential but Wassa will confirm the best date tomorrow and then we can make more definitive plan.

There is a wildlife sanctuary in Westford that I'm pretty sure is moose-friendly.
