Letterboxing Begins

I have just looked into an activity that some friends of ours have been doing for quite some time now. It's called Letterboxing. Here's a description from a Web site, and I quote,"Letterboxing is an intriguing 'treasure hunt' style outdoor activity. Letterboxers hide small, weatherproof boxes in publicly-accessible places (like parks) and post clues to finding the box online on one of several Web sites...Individual letterboxes usually contain a log book, an often hand-carved rubber stamp and many contain an ink pad. Finders make an imprint of the letterbox's stamp on their personal log book, and leave an imprint of their personal stamp on the letterbox's logbook."

From what I understand the letterboxes can be easy or difficult to find and may require a little hiking or a lot of hiking. Since I thought our family should do some hiking this summer and we're out of shape, this activity might be fun.

This Friday we'll pick our trail name, purchase a notebook and rubber stamp and on Saturday morning our friends will show us how this works. I will try to get some pictures and post them with a story ASAP.

That's about it for today. Send prayers up that this adventure (which I don't usually do) will be fun and something our family will enjoy doing together. My husband doesn't know yet, so let's hope he'll go.

Please pray for my husband...he's got a job interview tomorrow (May 28th) in the morning. He has a job, but things aren't looking too good for that family owned company so hubby thinks it's time to move on before things get worse.



  1. OH, you're gonna have a great time! Go back to my blog and do a search in the upper left hand corner search box for "Letterboxing". I have a few posts from when we've done it. We have a couple of planted boxes, but we've searched out LOTS of other people's boxes. You'll enjoy yourself. =0)

  2. How'd the interview go?

    Sounds like you'll have fun this weekend!

    Oh, and yes I'd love to have you take him tomorrow. I'll have him go to the church with daddy and he can drop him off or you can pick him up on the way, whichever.

    Thank you, mornings are still hard for me right now but I am feeling halfway human today!
