Thanks so much for the advice. We went ahead and signed up for a tour :). Every review I read was either "You just HAVE to go with a tour!" or "We had so much fun WITHOUT a tour guide!" and I just didn't know what to do.

I like the Moleskine sketchbooks. The paper is thick enough to stamp on both sides and the pocket comes in handy.

I'm looking for one more artist to fill up my Ooh, Shiny! LTC tracker. The send by date is May 28 and I'll throw in extra cards for sets that I receive early. I've gotten some great cards in already. Please consider joining us. Thanks!

Random Unlisted Box Found

While Planting in NorthSide Park in Vienna, VA the other day, I came across a ziplock container laying on the side of a hill. Its sides were cracked open and it looks like an animal has tried to get into it. I went to pick up the trash to throw away when I got home or to a trash can. I opened it and it was a letterbox!

Apparently, it was one of four that's in this park in a "code breaker" series. On the inside of the logbook, it has basic info for letterboxing and lists letterbox.org (which doesn't exist but that's ok. I think they meant letterboxing.org) no one has ever found this letterbox before, and it turns out this series is not listed on LBNA or Atlasquest! Does anyone happen to know anything about it?

...I found that I never got a nice enough image. They're too bumpy.

OK, same idea except make your own cards. Buy some suitable paper and cut out card-sized pieces with a paper slicer.

Cool find - lucky you! I didn’t see any likely possibilities in the LbNA basement, and don’t think I’ve ever hunted ‘boxes in Northside Park...

As chance would have it, I was at an event a couple of weekends ago and someone told me about a website called Letterboxingcentral.com (I think that was it). I don’t know anything about it but it might be worth looking into.

I don't know what the deal is with that web site but they give phone #s to call that are weird. And if you google them they are robot callers I think?

And they give a weird address:

125 Road St
New York, USA

+11 222 333 4444
+11 222 333 5555

I wish I hadn't even gone to the web site. I didn't get any kind of a warning about the site though, like not to go to it.

Uncharted Lancaster

Yesterday, I stumbled upon a page called Uncharted Lancaster on Facebook. There were several interesting articles about obscure Lancaster County history, so I decided to check out their website. The site describes Uncharted Lancaster as "National Treasure meets letterboxing meets Lancaster County history" and lists several adventures that you can embark on. Today, my family and I completed an adventure, and it was so awesome! The quest started with a 1906 dynamite factory explosion and continued to guide us through some hidden relics of a place I had been to often but did not know the history behind. At the end, there was a box with a collectible, custom keepsake that we could take to remember our adventure. We had a great time and can't wait to try another one.

I know what you are meaning by posting that quote, but . . .

One cannot observe a system without affecting it. So if you observe the world, you affect the world.

I understand your response.

Fair request, wrong board. You're looking for the Stamp Swap board:

Theres also a Stamp Exchange:
