There is no age restriction but there is always a fee....based on meals, lodging, and event costs. Usually, you can pick just registration and forgo lodging but meals are nice.

Nic and I were at L&B in Texas when we heard that the next one will be in Michigan.

That was news to me.

If it gets to Michigan, I will gladly assist, whether or not I am living in Michigan in five years. Right now and hopefully still in five years, I have my own personal organizer (and as he said at the airport - Human Valium).

Just wondering... could the location be dog friendly? If I could bring my camper and my dogs I would love to come.

That’s a good question. I’m not sure if they were or weren’t dog friendly before. It’s hard because you have to pick a venue with lodging, meals, and plenty of trails so it limits the where greatly. That would be something to consider. I know a bunch of people camped nearby the location.

I have no problem camping off site and essentially day tripping.

Cool. Well you’re going to have to wait five years for the next L&B, so keep your eyes peeled for it. It’s definitely worth the trip.

It's almost semi-Official. Michigan is in the lead with the polls closing soon. So get ready for endless years of fun..............

Already working on gift for raffle at your 2023 LBXXV event!

If and when the next L&B is in Michigan, it should be on Mackinac Island. And some of the fees should be used to pay for a 4 night stay at the Grand Hotel for the organizers. JUST KIDDING! I mean 5 nights. :)

I love Mackinac island but it would be awful for an L&B - not enough room, limited camping, and pricey. Would be a great place for a smaller event though!

Wow!! I love that idea!! How about 6 days - plus I could potentially hunt for the mapsurfer box while there!

I don't know, I think there'd be way too many muggles. Mapsurfer box is gone, too.

The one in our area has been gone for years.
I found it. I checked on it a year later. Gone.

That’s so sad. All the good boxes go missing. Need to figure out a way to ensure the longevity of these classics.

Oh no. I had this one on my list to get in 2019. How do you know that it's gone?

I cannot find any mention of the mapsurfer box in either AQ or LbNA. Is it a premium member's only box?

The last couple of times I went to Mackinac Islands have been after Labor Day. In October, most shops and hotels were closed and it was cold. In September, the shops and hotels were open, the weather was cool, and there were few people. No crowds. No families. I didn't have to worry about muggles. I was able to letterbox to my heart's content. When letterboxing in the summer, though, muggles were a big problem.

But the island is still somewhat expensive, even in the shoulder season.

I believe SITE Sleuths knew the exact location and didn't find it.

I looked for it on a trip in 2009 and didn’t find it either.
