We are moving to Wallingford, in kinda the middle of the state, per some maps. We have 7 year old twins and a soon-to-be 4 year old.

My sister lives there ("Sparky Doo"); Dad grew up there; Guy who works for me lives there. You'll like it. Easy access to a ridiculous number of boxes........oh wait, that's the whole state.

Yet I’ve hardly boxed Wallingford. But I will be at the re-opened Tyler tomorrow.

Oh wow! We live in Northford, just one street away from Wallingford! Tyler Mill is our favorite place to hike. It just reopened this weekend after being closed for a year after a very bad storm.

I letterbox around there often, with my 8 and 10 year olds.

Great! I heard Sleeping Giant is great, but is it still closed?

Yes, it's still closed. As of May 24, the Association was posting pictures of the State rebuilding the Tower Trail road.

I'm next door in Meriden where there's a box behind EVERY tree and EVERY rock. Not really, but that's the running gag. Hubbard Park is a good one to get lots of boxes at. Honest, there's just a fun group of people at various stages of letterboxing here in CT and Wallingford has lots of festivals, restaurants, etc. Welcome.
