Happiest of birthdays!!

The trail we picked is on Ragged Mountain, because we wanted a long enough trail to put 40 stamps. As it turns out, it's rather ankle-twisty with lots of hills. Have fun!

this was a great series. lots of fun. took some time. is a real hike. many of us have done it before for other boxes. trails are blazed pretty well. I think this was the trail that Rubaduc reblazed once upon a time.

Are you really going to brave the elements today ? It's 10 degrees and gusty cold here in central NY. I don't think I'm even going to walk to my mailbox, it's so cold !

If you got out there, I would like to hear about it. :^)

brave the elements

I can remember the days when I went 'boxing in all kinds of winter weather with the saying, "there is no bad weather, just not dressing right!" Hand warmers, foot warmers!! WHAT was I THINKING?!!! I'm much wiser these days, snug and warm. With memories. LOL

I did some cemetery boxes in Connecticut today. Perfect for winter. In and out of the car, getting warmed up and sipping coffee between boxes. Though the coffee didn't stay hot for very long. But still......

It was a beautiful, sunny day.
