Starting with the next letter of the alphabet, tell us something that you look forward to seeing this summer while letterboxing -- and have fun with it! I will start with A.

Aliens. Definitely aliens. I am not looking forward to the scary, abducting, probing aliens but more the friendly aliens like those who work at the office in Men in Black. You know, some of whom might even be your letterboxing friends. 🤣

Birds. Birds are a pleasant reminder of nature, and that we are in their domain. It is fun to be able to identify a bird, but seeing a new type of bird is also interesting because I get to try to identify it.

And while I'm out there I will be planting and finding letterboxes. (I could have always gone with Boxes, but that would be too obvious.)

Creeks. I look forward to further exploring of the vast number of creeks the mountains of Oregon produce. There are so many canyons (another c) to explore and discover in this state while learning how they drain to the huge rivers around as well. I just hope to avoid cougars!!! (though seeing one from a distance, heading the other way, would be fine).

Dinosaurs. Already completed, did a trip up to Saskatchewan for a few days and stopped in Drumheller AB on the way home to Cranbrook... The Royal Tyrell Museum is full of the creatures... not to mention the town of Drumheller itself...

Managed to find a few boxes to add to my meager collection as well... Two were in Unknown status for years... but two more resisted my efforts although one or both might be there... and one I simply have forgotten to look for until after driving by...

Fun trip... may others fulfill their expectations.

Edit: What happened to the formatting control list?
Found it... but I meant on the post screen...

Exploring new places! (Can’t figure out how to make the ‘E’ bold on my iPad!)

And, maybe, if I am lucky, going to EAA Airventure in July, the world’s largest aviation get together! (Dunno, flying from San Francisco to Oshkosh, WI in a tiny plane takes days...)

We are at the starting line of summer! Enjoy!

Falcons. We love to see birds of prey. Especially kites. We look for them everywhere.

That's what I was about... they took the little tag that offered help with markup codes away...

BTW two asterisks ** before and after the target letter group will do the bold..

You can find the list under your message preferences.. that is where I found it...

you can set for HTML or Wiki formats.

Ink . . . . lots of ink!! Signature stamps from finders of my long-unfound boxes, inky fingers from a day in the woods finding others' boxes or making LTCs for trade, new inks to play with, ink everywhere!!

Junctions - Junctions of trails to choose from when following clues. Do I go left or right? Did the clue writer know their left from their right? Do I know my left from my right? And, which way is north?

Planters with new Plants all around me. Been a long time since there were active boxers in my area, years ago it was a hotbed. And now, well, not even a single PAL Day plant in all of Washington.

Quality. Quality plants that don’t disappear. I’m talking about my own boxes. I have several I need to recarve & replant. I feel like I’ve learned a lot over my almost year of boxing. Hoping to have my boxes live in the wild for a long time.
