Do I detect a note of sarcasm in your use of the words "service animal"?

Do Ohio. Greenlawn in Columbus, Spring Grove in Cincinnati. There is a big cemetery in Dayton, a ton of boxes in a couple of cemeteries in Urbana, and a bunch in the cemeteries of Chillicothe.

You can easily spend a week in this area hitting these cemeteries--Spring Grove alone would take 2-3 days to do completely!! And these are all within a max of 2 hours of each other!

Would love to meet up if you do head out to the Heart of It All

Homer Lake Forest Preserve near Homer, IL

Homer Lake (not far from Urbana, IL and the University of Illinois) has been the location of Homerdoodle at Homer Lake 2016 and Homerdoodle 2018. Both events placed many letterboxes on the trails there and Homerdoodle in the Country 2017 is in Vermilion County not far away. In addition, there are many, many letterboxes planted within a 30 mile radius of Champaign, IL. Homerdoodle in the Woods will take place in July 2019 just to the west of Champaign, IL - planning on quite a few more letterboxes to be planted on trails in another Champaign County Forest Preserve.

Yum, lucky for me I happen to have a nice candy cane in my lunch bag! But I'm extra excited for National Bacon Day on 12/30. There will be bacon wrapped everything!

So, who has actually gone (letter)-boxing on Boxing Day? Tell us about your experience.

Me! Today. We did a cemetery series with a friend, then had a late, but wonderful Chinese buffet lunch.
After the first set of boxes, a car buzzed past us (not cemetery speed), and parked where we were supposed to park for our next boxes. Two people hopped out and strode across the 'planting ground', turning abruptly, then stopping, turned again, waved their arms a bit, and ~ gee, what could they be doing? They sure weren't mourners.
We drove past slowly, wondering if they would find their target before they found any of ours, went around the loop, and returned just as they jumped back into their car and hurried away.

Yes, we found what we were looking for. At lunch we discussed trying to letterbox outdoors at least once in January and February, too. Sometimes it's possible, and other years it just isn't a good idea. We shall see.

I did some box maintenance. Replaced two missing boxes, discovered that two others from the same series were missing, so the series is still down by two boxes.

And--even worse--one of the missing boxes included one of my very first stamps that had been in the wild and going strong for 15 years. RIP little worm.... *moment of silence*

Then I climbed a tree--so much better to smell the dead skunk by the parking lot.

Good times! =)

Yes, as we just enjoyed, AAF! St Louis is a wonderful place to letterbox. Wish we could have stayed longer and found more of the incredible boxes by the very talented SL area planters.

Thanks so much to everyone who shared suggestions. We’re looking forward to checking out as many of those sites as we can!

Sadly I did not go boxing on boxing day. While it was good enough weather for boxing, it was also good enough weather to finally paint the shed we've been meaning to paint for a couple months...so I did that instead. However, I DID find 2 boxes on Christmas Day, and I just packed up 4 for planting soon... :)

Thank you everyone! This is super helpful! I didn't think to put foam between the stamp and wood block if I go that route. I'll be going to the craft store this weekend! :)

Sounds like a great time!! Will watch for any updates. That park is HUGE and has a fair amount of GCs too, so I wonder what will happen to those as well.

What is are the developments going to consist of???

I don't know the scope of the project, but $2.5 mil is a LOT of trailwork.

Planting supplies for sale

Hi,

My husband isn't planting like he used to so I have supplies for sale:

I have a large block of pink stuff, a medium-ish block of off-white stuff, and a small thin rectangle of orange stuff ($5). I think the orange was obtained at the St. Louis event about 10 years ago; if not that, then the off-white.

I also have 9 new, in MINT condition, still in their packaging Lock & Locks ($40 for the box).

https://www.atlasquest.com/gallery/viewphoto.php?photoId=145822

I'm not really planning to ship unless we can work out electronic payment (I'm still in the dark ages). I live in Snellville (close to the mountain) and work in Midtown.

Please PM me.
