I have heard of the legendary travels and great box count of Wanda and Pete. Today while doing some box maintenance and looking through one of my logbooks what should appear before my bulging eyes ***wait for it**** the signature "stamp" of yes in...

I love when Wanda finds my boxes, she always writes a nice little note.

I will have to box my whole life to catch up to them and I'll still never be anywhere close. Wanda has a secret sense. I swear, she can just go to a box. It's impressive and she's so quick on her feet! It's an inspiration to get more in shape.

Online logging is against the spirit of letterboxing somehow. Not just online logging is against the spirit of letterboxing but so are drive-bys, temporary plants, events with more than a few boxes, gatherings with more than 25 people... Letterboxing...

They (she) believes that the only time you should know if someone found a box is by visiting that box. Whatever. That would prevent me from planting more than 5 miles from my house and thus limit my finders to about -- two. Maybe. Isn't having an act...

...but so are drive-bys... You need to find a couple of my drive-bys! Sometimes I feel bad about listing them as drive-bys since the drive is a real adventure! I've got one drive-by in which the drive is a 15-mile round trip that includes driving thr...

If people don’t want to find a plant as a drive by, they can always walk to it!

There has been many a recipient to get a tongue lashing and the promise of a boycott. That nastiness towards people giving events is very uncalled for. I'm so surprised that anyone would do that to you Three FLAmigo's, your event was so much fun!! Th...

I have a similar box - the first one I ever planted back in 2005: Box #6564. You have to drive through the creek 14 times. As you said, it's the drive to the drive-by that is the adventure!

I like the prospect of finding a box of yours, but I read the clue. That is NOT one I would try in my car.

I'm sorry that it happened to you too!! You've been great about sharing your event stamps with several of us to plant. I have been able to plant trails using your stamps in Florida & South Carolina on my way North. I'm so glad that I made it to yo...

Here are some more facts about our interesting hobby and traditions. Over there in Dartmoor, they have plants close to the road and easy to find, even without clues (the equivalent of our drive-by's, yeah?), places without a 100 Club post their clues...

So just some feedback based on our experiences in Dartmoor. they have plants close to the road and easy to find, even without clues We found zero boxes close to the road, most of them are planted around the Tors (of which there are a lot) and rock for...

Or did they just want us to return to the origins of letterboxing in the USA? Yeah. That was kinda my point. Any one of those things has in the past caused kerfluffles. I don't agree/disagree w/ how they do things over there & obviously some info is no...

So the point I'm trying to make is that there is no one way to box.....to each his own (as long as the safety and no tearing up the landscape rules are followed). The point I was making, though I did it with sarcasm. It is fun doing it my way. And yo...

the man who started it in England is now in his 90s and in a pensioner's home He might be more like 190 years old. I think letterboxing began in 1854.

I was referring to Godfrey, also known as Good, who's the man who negotiated with the park service in Dartmoor to allow for letterboxing.
