I recently asked our host to allow me to become a "poster" to this blog. He graciously agreed. He indicated I would need to start with a brief post about myself and why I started boxing. He did say brief, right?
My trail name is J-Corn, like Acorn, but with a J. My signature stamp has an acorn with a J in it. I ran across geo-caching some time ago and thought it would be fun, but then never followed up. I purchased an art book titled Art Stamping Workshop by local artist/author Gloria Page. It had mentioned letterboxing as a great hobby for those who liked to carve stamps. There was a link to LbNA. I followed that to MMoLB and here I am. I had already carved some number stamps, so that part of the process did not intimidate me.
I am an avid outdoors person who likes camping, hiking, hunting, canoeing, skiing, etc. I am a lifelong Boy Scout (since 2nd grade) and currently serve as my son's Webelos Leader and Cubmaster for Pack 733. I also am interested in art in several areas such as collage, cardmaking, beading, native American crafts, painting, and others. I am married and have two children, a boy, age 10.5, and and a girl, age 13. My wife is a school teacher. My son has found one box with me and is trying to come up with an idea for his stamp. I think my daughter may want to join in at some point. My wife has muggle tendencies, but if I ever get her on the trail, I think she might get hooked as well.
I think that is brief, isn't it? I look forward to meeting members of this group at a gathering sometime.
