Perfect place for a multi-colored, double sided stamp and a bonus box.

I love these 😂 I made one once that said “Thanks, that feels better.” On the back. Sadly, I left it in our old yard.

My husband and I are headed south to Gulf Shores, AL. Goodness knows we need to get out of the winter in Illinois!

Is anyone going to be in the Gulf Shores - Orange Beach area in February that would like to meet up for a stamp exchange? Please send me an AQ email if you are available. Thanks!

A shout out to aMAZEing Adventure Frog and crew, what a fun event. So many creative puzzles and artistic creations to hide them in. Everything was well thought out and coordinated. The details were aMAZEing. LOVED LOVED the Underworld and journey. One of the best parts of the evening was seeing the mischievous smiles radiate from BoxReaper, ChristmasPuppy and that Amazing amphibian. What a wonderful relationship you all have. Hope to see many more collaborations in the future!

Yes, I do have some boxes for that set. I will save them for you. When would you like to get them? There may still be a few that need to be pulled.

I agree 100%! Many Thanks to the aMAZEing crew for super event! Just when you think there couldn't possibly be any more hiding places, Frog and crew find a way. The decor, especially the hand made clue pieces, was exceptional, and I enjoyed every minute of this super event!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have almost all the cards for the first swap I am hosting, and as soon as they're all in and its time, I will send them out. What I'm trying to do is be reliable and prove myself in these swaps, so people will feel good about signing up with me. I realise not every swap with every host goes great.
I have posted another swap, childhood fears, and this time given more time. There is still room in that. Really hope to build a repore with folks and keep making and collecting wonderful ltc's!

Thanks to Team MudCup for another superb LL Bean event, a focal point for Maine lore!! Plenty of ink for all in various locations and climate. We are beat and were only participants, unable to image how these two Maine boxing icons feel, rest well ladies, well deserved!!!!

To pull off something of this magnitude there are always others behind the scene. The hosts at the pre-gathers, Angel Treads, Nittany and Happy Daze a big shout out!! You had your hands full keeping folks at bay, as we all were anxious to get the ink. Last but certainly not least are all the carvers that contributed, a chance for us folks up here to see your talents! Ayuh, thanks!!

We are proud to be a part of the Maine family and of the letterboxing community!! Safe travels, stay inky.

Team MudCup!

Being my first Bean event, I did not know what to expect. Well I had a blast and everyone one I met, both friends & new friends, had a blast as well! Lots of fun & smiley faces! Now I only wish I'd made it up there before!!
It was also a pleasure to finally meet you guys after all those close calls over the years!

CooLL Beans to both of you!!

I'm taking my daughter, formerly known as Lunagirl, and my three-year-old grandson to see The Stones in Chicago this summer and I just got the brilliant idea to see Hamilton the night before. The show has a policy of not allowing children under five, which is fair, but brings up questions of logistics, specifically, what to do about a babysitter. I'm bringing it up here because AQ has the largest concentration of people I know in the Chicago area. Atlasquest, what should I do?

You are wise to ask here, for it is my sincere belief that letterboxers in general, and AQers in specific, are among the most thoughtful, giving, generous, kind, and downright helpful people in the world. For example, I myself would happily make the long trek to Chicago to help out a boxer-in-need. So fear not, I'll sacrifice my precious time and gladly take Lunagirl to Hamilton so you can stay with your grandson. Assuming they're decent seats, of course. You're welcome.

Thank you, Wassa. I had considered that possibility, but I was afraid your... headgear... could block the view of the patrons behind you. Things could get ugly. Just sayin'.

I don't suppose this holds true for the Stones concert, right??? Asking for a friend.

I will be in Munich this September with a group of friends. I would like to find a letterbox in Munich. We will be staying by the Market in the Hotel Am Markt.

Hopefully I will find one.

Nope, it doesn't. However, neither does the ban on toddlers. My grandson will be one of the few people born in 2015 who can say he's seen Paul McCartney, The Who, and The Rolling Stones live in concert, and he'll have the t-shirts to prove it. Much cooler and much cheaper than Disney World.

I’m not sure how much of the experiences he’ll remember but still that’s very cool and he’s one lucky dude. I hope the T-shirt’s are adult size so he can get the most out of them.

I agree! It was a great event and we had an amazing time! I think we logged about 150 traditional finds... who knows how many event-type stamps and many exchanges!

We weren't quite as hardcore as many, but boxed lots and slept little, got questioned by the cops, had to shimmy under some stairs because the box kept sliding away, met lots of fun people, ate lobster and whoopie pies (not together) and had an absolute blast of a whirlwind weekend. Thanks so much Team Mudcup! I'm glad I was able to attend the final Bean event. It was an incredible end to an era. Loved the Freeport area, I hope to come back to visit soon!

Sound like a lot of fun. Sorry I had to miss it. Hopefully next year things will be calmed down. I'm in the middle of a major home repair/remodel of kitchen/bathroom and flooring throughout. It's going to be beautiful if they ever finish.

I went on youtube to look for a video showing how we tape an envelope for a postal. I couldn't find one. Does anyone know of one and have a link. I tried to explain it over the phone and a friend wasn't understanding.

Thanks,
