Help with finding a lb on AQ

Hi,

We were out looking for lb's along the Oregon coast =) We were trying to locate a box, but wasn't able to find it, but there was another one in it's spot. I'm not able to find it.

The stamp is of a Unicorn and *I think* the owners are Thompson Phantoms.

Any help would be appreciated =)

It is possible that a geocacher who happens to know about letterboxing found it and exchanged the original stamp for the unicorn. I've seen this happen at hybrid letterbox/geocache plants that are listed on both web sites.

We have also seen this happen with some Girl Scout troops. I think they find the box is missing, and so plant their own in its place. The “replacement” box might not be listed.

Although “Thompson Phantoms” doesn’t sound like a troup name, it could be a family thinking along the same lines.
