What they said! Also, you can also use gesso OVER your stamped image; it depends on what effect you're looking for, and how you want to use your color mediums...there is no right or wrong; just options for how to play!πŸ˜€

...and the other near Eminence, MO.

From a Phoenix launchsite?!? Wow! The jet stream must have been cooking that day!

I would love to hear more about your future launches and if any of them head towards central Texas I would love to help track it down.

Pine Grove State Park. It doesn't have full hook ups, but there electric sites. Close to letterboxes. :)

Oh, how nice of you to do that! Hopefully a few families will get the bug. πŸ˜ƒ

We potentially have two families coming over Sunday to learn about letterboxing, and one of them has already decided that they definitely want to play. πŸ‘

Our favorite campground is the Drummer Boy Camping Resort. Beautiful pool and great activities.

I also recommend visiting the Eisenhower National Historic Site. You need to take a shuttle bus there that you pick up at the Gettysburg visitor's center.

Have Fun!

Thanks,
Hubs decided last night he doesn't want to pull the trailer that far yet. So now we're looking at normal lodging like cabins, hotels, airbnb.

I'm not sure we will have time to go to any state parks now. :(
It sounds wonderful.

I think I looked at this one last night right before hubby decided he doesn't want to take the trailer that far....

I'd like to visit Eisenhower HS, but hubby probably won't. Maybe I can leave him to roam the battlefield, and I'll go with the kids. ;)

Thanks!

I've been waiting for this. I have two stamps carved and am trying to figure out where to plant.

Two stamps?! Fantastic!

I've not done much boxing in the last few years. Inexcusable, I know, but trying to get back in the loop. There are so many breweries near me now, so I shall try to contribute.

Plant A Beer Day is a great time to get back into boxing. Cheers!

I use contact cement (the stuff used for laying tile flooring), it stinks, but is really permanent, and I've never had problems with it coming apart, and I always have some around the house.

LOL! No worries - I'm not moving very fast at my goals!!

I think you may be one of the few newer local boxers at the mountain - though I could be wrong about that. Good luck on your continued searches!

April 7 is National Beer Day - Making this the third year of celebrating Plant A Beer Day and last year I made a ltc with my brewery stamp and then never did anything with it so I thought this year I'd host a ltc tracker, Cheers for Beers!

Please consider not only partaking in Plant A Beer Day but also making a ltc with your carve for Cheers for Beers.

My thoughts exactly. I'm going to slowly start removing my old box has no one's found in years... If no one is looking for them then their litter in the woods...

So agree! But what to do with the abandoned boxes?? I'm thinking there are only a few of the old, first ones (thinking Ryan's and Sun Over Stone) that should remain.

I can think of more than a few that should stay. Like All of the remaining Granny and Paw Paw boxes, plus the tributes to them. Those boxes are fascinating even if you never met Granny and PawPaw.

And all the boxes that require a boat- atleast one more summer, as a favour to me please!

If anybody wants to hook me up with the fox hunting clues I would love a chance to look for them before they get cleaned up.

Yep...especially now that Tumbling Waters is gone. Although, I think the tribute boxes to Granny and Paw Paw should remain.

Go to your logbook page. In the Action box select Plants. In the Box Type box select Reserved. In the Year box select All or the year in which you made the reserved listing.

HI friends!
We are planning a tip out to Harpers Ferry (among other places) and are wanting to know of great places to stay: hotels, cabins, airbnb, etc. We are on a budget. But, we are hoping to maybe have a kitchen??

Also any can't miss boxes because I am thinking all our time will be taken up by the Park. I think we are going to try to make time to visit the shops downtown.

Thanks!!

We have not found many Stone Mountain boxes and would be happy to slowly find any old ones people leave out. We are not super fast high volume boxers so can’t guarantee we would do that soon, but often like to go out and find a few boxes. Since there are not many new ones being added to the Atlanta area, we would be grateful for any old ones people chose to leave around.
