What is a mystery postal?

It is a postal where you can't just join. A number of clues is given by the organizer, and the first N (whatever that number may ge) will be added to the list to receive the stamp.

I have been wanting to start them again since football season began. I've been swamped with work, but will try to start one next week.

I had a good run of successes this year solving your mysteries. A couple where I should have guessed but didn't think that my answer could possibly be right and I would have been! The Jeep one I got pretty quick.

Curious, do you plant the stamps after them being postals?

Sometimes they are planted but many are just stored. If there are any someone would like to plant they are welcome to them.

Yay! We love your Mystery Postals. We don't always get to solve them because some are harder for us than others ;)
Looking forward to seeing more!
Thanks IrishRef!

Would love to plant some. We relocated and there are a depressing lack of stamps out here.

Would love to join you on any postal you pick up or if you want to co-found one
