No finds or plants for me yet. I started 2019 with an explosion of carving! I've carved 23 stamps this week and have 10 more to wrap up tomorrow. I hope to do some actual planting in the next two weeks! I'm working with a new carving medium that i...

... The Algonquians live(d) in both Michigan and Connecticut areas. They speak Algonquian languages, so they may very well mean the same thing. The Wikipedia article on Saugatuck, Connecticut says about the neighborhood of Saugatuck, "Saugatuck origi...

Just got back from a last second funtrip with my daughter and her friend to Reno. While making the requisite visit to The Spy Shop (because how could one NOT go to a place called The Spy Shop?), a quick check on ClueTracker showed a letterbox nearby....

It's quiet .... too quiet!

I agree! I'd like to liven things up by saying that the very first letterbox planted in the U.S. was the Prayer Rock box, but I'm sure that won't generate any discussions.

Too quiet in New England...since September I've planted 11 boxes in three states and not one has been found yet.

... Ooooo, this was one of my favorite finds, second only to Rubba Bugga! It would've been my top favorite, but the excruciating noise there was almost painful!!! Either way, both carvings are worth searching out... IF you can decode the clues AND mus...

... Snopes: WRONG! Correct Answer: The United States Post Office Department began installing public letterboxes in the 1850s outside post offices and on street corners in large Eastern cities. U.S. letterboxes were initially designed to be hung or su...

... So true. And now that I think about it, Wanda and Pete have probably found most of them, just not logged them.

For those of you who have boxes at Bonnie Springs, it’s been sold to a developer. He plans to build 20 homes and a motel while “keeping the land as natural as possible” but no plans have been released to show which boxes will be in peril. I assume all...

For larger baggies we use ZipLoc freezer bags because they're tough. For smaller baggies we use craft bags because they're cheap. The other day in a Wally World I found another type of tiny baggie, a pill bag sold in the pharmacy area. It looks to b...

I'm currently in a micro-postal ring; a postal sent in a regular letter envelope. I have done regular postals (the Mystery Postals in particular) and LTC trackers. I like these kinds of letterboxing because, especially during the winter, there isn't...

It’s not just the weather, it can be lack of available boxes in general. We have found all of the (few) physical letterboxes in our area and all of the ones in the surrounding areas. The Central Valley of California is kind of a no-man’s land of letter...

A while back I ended up with a slew of these pill baggies. Being the letterboxer at the time in the house they were given to me with the thought that I might be able to use them. One of the projects I did with them was make some hitchhikers like this o...

When I first started letterboxing, my kids were young, and we had just moved to NY due to my husband's job. It was a new place that we wanted to explore and we knew we would only be there for a few years, so letterboxing was great for that, and NY is...

used to until postal rates became so high and too many were ending up in black holes... I do LTCs when the stamps warrant it - but hardly ever join a swap. While we don't do lots of winter boxing - we do some - and I carve for many events in the futur...
