A good friend of mine did this. I will private message you her information. She could probably answer your questions. Tell her "Rosemary" recommended her (not "Rosmarinus"-) she doesn't know about letterboxing!

Hello California!!

I use an OttLite. I have the one that switches between being a floor or tabletop lamp. I usually have it in β€œfloor” mode while I sit on the couch with the glass right up to my face and hold my carves up. Using mustard colored Staz-On also really helps you differentiate what you are and are not carving away.

I also had Advanced Lasik done a year ago, but that may be a little far to go to improve carving. 😜 Before that, I either over-compensated by defocusing my eyes, or I put a fresh pair of contacts in.

LA is huge....where exactly are you staying/working. That can help us narrow down where you will be and we can better recommend boxes to find etc.

If you are downtown, I can highly recommend the Los Angeles Public Library, I just read a book about it (Library Book by Susan Orlean) and there are letterboxes there also....the area is also where the Black Dahlia was last seen, so you can visit those sites (and there are letterboxes) , I also recommend the Angels Flight funicular in downtown LA. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angels_Flight

Aw! Thanks to everyone! I've been down and out with a cold and bronchitis, but looking forward to my princess weekend away starting tonight after work. Headed to Mass and hoping to make it to the Pi Day event.

Not every pie is sweet. There are savory pies too. Just none I can think of in this section of the alphabet.

Hoping all in Colorado are at home, safe and warm, and out of the snow and cold. It looks like the airport was turned into a makeshift hotel as blankets were being passed out.

Thanks for thinking of us! We did get a lot of snow and very high winds. I didn't go out at all yesterday and I'm planning to stay in today, too. Fortunately, things change quickly here and soon all of this will be gone.
