Random Unlisted Box Found

While Planting in NorthSide Park in Vienna, VA the other day, I came across a ziplock container laying on the side of a hill. Its sides were cracked open and it looks like an animal has tried to get into it. I went to pick up the trash to throw away when I got home or to a trash can. I opened it and it was a letterbox!

Apparently, it was one of four that's in this park in a "code breaker" series. On the inside of the logbook, it has basic info for letterboxing and lists letterbox.org (which doesn't exist but that's ok. I think they meant letterboxing.org) no one has ever found this letterbox before, and it turns out this series is not listed on LBNA or Atlasquest! Does anyone happen to know anything about it?

Cool find - lucky you! I didn’t see any likely possibilities in the LbNA basement, and don’t think I’ve ever hunted ‘boxes in Northside Park...

As chance would have it, I was at an event a couple of weekends ago and someone told me about a website called Letterboxingcentral.com (I think that was it). I don’t know anything about it but it might be worth looking into.

I don't know what the deal is with that web site but they give phone #s to call that are weird. And if you google them they are robot callers I think?

And they give a weird address:

125 Road St
New York, USA

+11 222 333 4444
+11 222 333 5555

I wish I hadn't even gone to the web site. I didn't get any kind of a warning about the site though, like not to go to it.

I do remember the original letterboxingcentral.com. It was still around as a place to post.....can't remember if they listed boxes......and I joined it. I remember having discussions with other boxers. This had to have been just before AQ?

Now that you referred to that message, I have a dim memory of seeing that here on AQ....the owner selling it, etc.

It seems to be just sitting there not doing any real harm as far as I can see. Unless you call one of those phone numbers. lol Their copyright...if that is real, ran out in 2017. But it's not a source of any boxes. :)
