International Plant-a-Letterbox Day started in the spring of 2006. Flowers were blooming, the sun was coming out, and spring was in the air. It was a time to start letterboxing, and encourage others to plant a letterbox, many for their first time. Jokes were made about crashing Atlas Quest with all the new letterboxes being listed. (Fortunately, this did not happen.) A record number of letterboxes were listed that day, May 24, 2006.
We had so much fun, we did it again in 2007. And again in 2008. And again and again. Want to join the fun? Plant a letterbox on May 24th, then list it on Atlas Quest. If you're busy that day, it's okay to plant it the day before or day after the event—it'll still count as long as the plant date is May 24th. The complete list of rules and regulations can be found at the bottom of this page.
