Do Ohio. Greenlawn in Columbus, Spring Grove in Cincinnati. There is a big cemetery in Dayton, a ton of boxes in a couple of cemeteries in Urbana, and a bunch in the cemeteries of Chillicothe. You can spend your whole trip with the dead. No one to whine that it's time to stop boxing. Just bliss.

We've had some wonderful events in Michigan with beautifully carved stamps in fabulous parks. You can spend a day or two or more letterboxing in each place. Here are some that come to mind:

Lyon Oaks Dog Park, 52221 Pontiac Trail, Wixom, MI

Three metroparks connected: Willow Metropark, 23200 S Huron Rd, Huron Charter Township, MI, along with Lower Huron Metropark, E Huron River Dr & S Metro Parkway, Belleville, MI, as well as Oakwoods Metropark, 32911 Willow Rd, New Boston, MI

Waterloo Recreation Area, 17030 Bush Rd, Chelsea, MI

Proud Lake Recreation Area, 3500 Wixom Rd, Commerce Twp, MI

You can easily spend a week in this area hitting these cemeteries--Spring Grove alone would take 2-3 days to do completely!! And these are all within a max of 2 hours of each other!

Would love to meet up if you do head out to the Heart of It All

Homer Lake Forest Preserve near Homer, IL

Homer Lake (not far from Urbana, IL and the University of Illinois) has been the location of Homerdoodle at Homer Lake 2016 and Homerdoodle 2018. Both events placed many letterboxes on the trails there and Homerdoodle in the Country 2017 is in Vermilion County not far away. In addition, there are many, many letterboxes planted within a 30 mile radius of Champaign, IL. Homerdoodle in the Woods will take place in July 2019 just to the west of Champaign, IL - planning on quite a few more letterboxes to be planted on trails in another Champaign County Forest Preserve.

Yes, as we just enjoyed, AAF! St Louis is a wonderful place to letterbox. Wish we could have stayed longer and found more of the incredible boxes by the very talented SL area planters.

Thanks so much to everyone who shared suggestions. We’re looking forward to checking out as many of those sites as we can!
