I stitched together the signatures, glued the cardboard inside the cover paper, and glued the signatures inside of the cover. It is now drying under a book with a board on top and then weighed down. It should be ready in the morning for planting.

This is a replant. I'm waiting until the early afternoon so that it will be warm when I go traipsing through the snow to plant this letterbox. When I get back I'll have to remember to post how deep the snow was. The box will go about 400 feet from the parking lot along a trail. The forecast shows that it will be below freezing, but there is no snow in the forecast.

folded your signatures

Maybe I got up too early and my brain isn’t warmed up yet as I haven’t had any coffee, but I don’t know what you’re talking about 😂 Please elaborate as I’ve never done this before.

Signatures, as in the folded groups of pages in a homemade logbook.

From Merriam Webster definition 3b:

one unit of a book comprising a group of printed sheets that are folded and stitched together

A book, including a log book, is made up of multiple signatures. However, our usage of log book is wider. I've seen some log books made up of interesting folds and cuts of paper.

The roads were clear, and the parking lot had been packed down by previous vehicles. The trail was easy to follow at first, but I lost it about half way to the location. I even went the wrong way, but when there was no clear way I went back to where I was sure and tried again. I eventually found the place along the trail and planted the letterbox.

Then I went back uphill, through the knee-deep snow. 🐸 It is too bad that it wasn't a frog stamp that I was planting. 🐸

After this tangent I made, I thought of carving a stamp for every animal emoji, but there are too many. There are only 2 dog glyphs but 11 cat glyphs. (See page 2.) This means that the cats rule the Internet.
