As we are just getting back to the game, I am eager to find some events that will be stamp heavy and at a maximum of about six hours from us here in the Lake Norman, NC, area. Yes, I am looking at the events list, yet I would appreciate any tips about upcoming events, too. Thank you!

Mercury Rising is about 6 hours from you in Middleburg, VA in November. It's a weekend long event, with nightboxing. It's going to be a blast!

Howdy and welcome back!! After Geekfest - Letterboxing gone WILD (animals!!!) in September in Raleigh and then Ready, Set, GO! in Mistletoe, GA in November will both be fantastically super awesome large scale events! Mistletoe State Park is at the very top of GA, so you can scoot through SC and join in the transportation themed excitement! So excited to see you at upcoming events!

Thank you! I actually looked at that event. It is about as far as I would like to drive, so I was unsure. Since it comes recommended, I may have to give it a more serious look!

Ha! That would absolutely be super fun. I even thought about it for half a second. Boy's band is playing that weekend, though, so we do need to be in town. Surely the antics will be at a high level!

To be honest, I am biased because I am one of the Flight Directors (co-host). But Night0wl has already starting carving some amazing stamps and we've got some neat things in the works.

If you are up for a pre-summer adventure, I am hosting an event in Indiana in May. We have wonderful state parks and camping. Glad to see you back in the game!!

I appreciate the heads up about the event. That is the same weekend as an event here in NC. 😉

Considering that the NC definition of "heavy on stamps" seems to be around 400 stamps, I'll have to say we are a bit lighter. Based on my experience hosting an event last spring, and thinking on what we have planned, I expect us to have at least 100 stamps.
