Hey, we are about to become full time rvers. I wonder how many of us there are on here. I'd love to know if any my boxes are still there.

I dare say Massachusetts probably gets a few more letterboxing visitors than does Alaska, however, so more attempts and information as to whether boxes are there or not ... ;)

Chances are pretty good that if they haven't been found since 2013, they're still there. There are at the most, 5 or 6 boxers in Alaska and once you've found the boxes, there's no reason to go again. People come here and don't log finds. There's many reasons they may not have been found. Keep in mind too, boxes don't usually get found from September/October until April/May due to snow and ice. Message us before you get here and maybe we can meet up!

If you need help determining which boxes you can get in a short amount of time, we can probably help. I'm not a tour guide, but I can certainly give you guidance. :) I was born and raised here, I know my way around.

I may just contact you regarding some. I've gone through Anchorage and chosen some that sound nice, but we'll be all over the place during our trip, so I need to narrow down my list!

Regarding a potential meetup - Honeymama and I love mini meets or meeting people on the trail! She is much shyer than I am, but enjoyed making some friends at an Oregon event a few years ago, so she always asks if we're going to do something like that again.

Right now I can tell you that we land in Anchorage on 7/15 and pick up our RV on 7/16. Our flight out is on 7/30, and I'm pretty sure we'll be passing through Anchorage mid-trip, too. Maybe we could schedule a mini-meal or mini-trail meet in the middle or at the end!

We do not have an itinerary yet, but are driving our own rv up from Washington. We plan on coming into AK through the northern route from Dawson city to chicken. Not sure if we will be in the anchorage area at that time or not but if we are, totally down for a meet up.

I'm pretty new to Letterboxing, but I've already found three hidden around Anchorage, so there are at least three boxes that are still active! :)

Ahoy Girl! Retirement in the works. i'm sure your boxes are still there. They were very well done. E has done a great job of combing thru the state. i relied on him to do my maintenance. Thanx E! Alaska letterboxers cover the biggest state with the least amount of boxers.

I have an easy find in Skagway that I would love to know is still alive or not. "You Are Here-Skagway, Alaska".

Dirt Monkey is headed to Kodiak for a few days next week. Any you need checked? I don't think I have any ready for planting out there, we're kinda filling up the island, but we're still here!
