Found Letterboxes in 50 States and DC

We met one of our personal letterboxing goals today. We stamped in at the Sweet Home Alabama Letterbox around noon. It was our first letterbox find in Alabama. Alabama is now the 50th State in which we have found letterboxes. We also found several in the District of Columbia. We have been letterboxing for 51 months. Our new slogan might have to be 51 in 51! Yippee.

Sweet Home Alabama

That is a special plant of ours since it is in our home state and means when we are driving, we are almost "home" with family.
Now it has an additional special status.
Thanks for making our box the magic number box!

Thank you and all the other letterboxers who have placed their creations for all of us to find.

Congrats. That would be great if you did it. You send me a stamp and book and I'll plant it in MA for you.

Alabama is now the 50th State in which we have found letterboxes.

Saved the best for last, eh? ;o)

But seriously, congrats. So far as I know, you might be the first person who'd actually found boxes in all 50 states. I know a number of people are probably close to it, but you're the first that I know who's actually letterboxed in all 50 states.

The big question, however, is when are you going to letterbox in every country in the world? Seems to me, you're still missing a few. ;o)

You've got your Darmoor 100....

And you've got your Travelers Century Club

official site for that last one

And P51 in 51 months....let's see I suck at math, but I do believe that leaves you 49 months!

Time to Get Busy!! Especially with that plant a box goal...hehehe

So followup question Ryan. I seem to recall the Plant in 50 States "challenge" or something like that... somewhere ..some time.... in my 'boxing web surfing. As far as you know has anyone planted in all 50 states +/- DC?

(and of course in my first post...the time to edit post now expired I *meant* F51 NOT
And P51 in 51 months....

I'm working on puting one of my stamps in every state but not planting them myself. In fact I would like to not plant any of them. It's all about letterboxers working together.

Not as far as I know. That's still up for grabs. =)

We were trying to do the same with our Life Lessons From the Jukebox series, but that got to bee too much to keep up with for us. Still, there's quite a few out there still in about half the states, I think.
