Hi!
I'm new to letterboxing, but already hooked! I've placed two so far... one in Brisbane and one in Toowoomba, and I'll be placing more soon. My letterboxes are also accessible on horseback.
Hope that someone finds mine, and I also hope to find others too!

Ooh - that sounds exciting. I'm so pleased that boxing is taking off over in our corner of the world.
I'll be sure to look for your boxes next time I go to Brisbane to visit my Grandparents.

Good luck and Happy boxing!

Jay,

We've been checking the site and watching the Queensland tally go up and up! It's awesome. Next time we're up there we hope to find some. I don't have a single stamp from an Australian letterbox yet, only the ones we got in the US when we discovered letterboxing. How did you find out about it?

Keep hiding them!

HI

I discovered letterboxing when someone posted a thing about letterboxing on horseback on a group I'm a member of. That's why all my letterboxes are also accessible (and designed) for horse riders. www.letterboxingonhorseback.com

I can't carve, tho'!!! So I'm just using store-bought stamps..... but nice ones!! I can't wait to find my first one!! Have to go to Brisbane to do that, I think! I'll be placing another one next weekend at Kilkivan.

Although I lived in the States for 9 years, I didn't know about it there.

When I first starting thinking about attributes for letterboxes, I had considered creating a "horse friendly" option for those people who might like to letterbox on horseback and plant a box in a horse-friendly venue. Kind of threw that idea out when I couldn't think of a single person on AQ who might have been interested in such a feature. I may have to reconsider now, though! =)
