We plan on a vist some Ambassador owls, any other suggestions?

Are you thinking of the Ambassador Owl series in Merritt Island?

If so and you are headed to Brevard County there is Sams House Pine Island in Merritt Island and also the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary in Titusville.

Both offer either short or long hikes, depending on what you want to make of them as their are many trail heads/loops/spurs options so you are not stuck with hike in/hike out only trail.

Enchanted Forest is a combination of paved/dirt/sandy trails and frankly is one of my favorite park/trails. You could easily do a short hike here and stay on a paved trail that is much kinder to the knees than a sandy trail.

How do I list this kind of stamp. I have a really cool one I’ve been taking with me as a PT but it’s too time-consuming sometimes. Especially at certain events depending on how busy they are to carry it around and give it to people. If I could just plant it when I get there and pick it up before I leave I think more people could get it but I’m not sure how to list it.

Wassa couldn't get the Saturday extension so the meet-a-moose catastrophe will need to be on Friday evening for those up for punishment! Where we can all fit is the final question. Looks like somewhere between 2 and 99 potential party poopers. That helps narrows down the options.

The Crafty Mom, babypanda, and I are working on a letterboxing event for late this summer. Logistics still need worked out, but we need to know how much interest there would be for the event. Currently the plan is to have the event over a weekend in September/August (probably Friday evening-Sunday morning). It would be near Boise, Idaho. There will be night boxes as well as boxes to find during the day. The theme is the Enchanted Forest (all things mythical, Narnia, LOTR, OUAT, etc). Because there is a cost for the campground and likely prizes as well we would have a small cost per person.
Any thoughts, tips, interest in this?

I've seen people listing traditional stamps for events with the location of the event in the listing. Then the clue says, "Clues to be posted at event." Then when you get to the event, you could hide the box, write the clues, and post them on a bulletin board or whatever in the main event area.

I think that's what you are hoping to do?

I do what Angel Winks just said. There's a couple different ways to do it, depending on how you want to plant it... if it has clues or not.

You can either make it a traveling event box and call it a "hidden in plain sight" or "table top box", and just add a new event each time you move it. For these, you wouldn't have clues. Just leave it in the gathering room either out in the open or 'hidden in plain sight'.

Or, you can make it a temporary traditional box with Word of Mouth clues. For this, you can change the physical location of the box each time so it will show up in searches for that area. Then in the clues, just type available at whatever event and list the clues or state WOM clues available then. After the event, change status to unavailable.

OMG! You guys are CRAZY! Once I start listing boxes tomorrow and your printer bursts into flames - you'll stop printing :)

There over 200 just the night of the event - you'll get PLENTY of ink :)

Remove the "lg" at the end of the URL. The large version gets deleted after a few weeks/months.

Maybe our webmaster can think of a way to forward links to the small version? Not a big deal, but would be helpful.

Hmm......... I've often been told that Moose are the MOST intelligent of all species, but perhaps a little reminder is due in this situation:
1)We currently hold the keys to the carvers.
2)Your trail name includes such items as a$$, $mut and Twa_!!!

Although we're technically in charge, we have no really Eevil intentions and we'll leave your fate in the hands of the other administrators. Good luck with that!!!!!!!!

See you soon - for betterer or worserer!
