Weekend In Indiana, drowning letterboxes
We just returned home from 5 days in Indiana. We met my sister's family (Jesemiaud) for a weekend of letterboxing in southwest Indiana. What we did not know is that they received 14 inches of rain during the week. 2 more on Thursday night when we got there. 7 more on Friday night. 1 on Saturday. 2 on Monday. Boxes were washed away. Heck, entire covered bridges were washed away. Roads to letterboxes were washed away. The plan was to get 30 during the trip. We ended up with 13 boxes, 1 exchange, 1 postal, 2 personals, and 1 hitchhiker. They have a small community of boxers but they have several good boxes. We met one couple from there. They were very nice. They helped us out several times, with boxes and with weather reports. It was a bad camping trip BUT we are planning to go back again next year. It will be better ( IT WILL HAVE TO BE. IT CAN'T GET ANY WORSE) and we will get the rest of the boxes in the area.
