Mid-Mo Halloween Gathering

Dustoff your broomsticks and fly in for a All Hallows Gathering at my house on October 25, 2008. This will be a family-friendly event. Please bring your favorite dish to share. I'll provide the rootbeer. Costumes are encouraged, and there will be a prize for best costume. I live on 2.5 acres and will be hiding boxes on the property for your letterboxing pleasure. You are also welcome to bring a box to plant for the event, either outside with clues or as a Hidden-in-Plain-Sight (HIPS) box somewhere in the house or on the grounds. There will also be a pumpkin carving contest. You may carve pumpkins on site (I'll provide the carving tools and candles, you bring your own pumpkin) or you may bring a pumpkin already-carved at home. For those of you with pet allergies, please be aware that I have numerous cats.

Doors open at 2 p.m., and festivities will continue into the wee hours of the night. Evening festivities will include a bonfire, glowsticks, and night 'boxing. Adult beverages permitted after sunset. You may drop in at any time and even camp in the backyard if you want to stay all weekend. Parking is limited. There will be some space in the driveway, and on the front lawn, but I live on a narrow gravel road so you may have to park one street away and walk.

If you wish to hunt for boxes the following day as well, you are welcome to do so.

Please contact me if you need directions or more information:
I hope you can come sit for a spell--Kat

Living and Breathing Letterboxing

I will be leaving for a very special letterboxing event where I will get to spend a glorious three days doing nothing but boxing. Of course, I could not go without being an emissary for the Mid-MO LB community. So, I am asking for any hidden in plain sight boxes or hitchhikers, cooties, or fleas that you would like to have visit the great Pacific NW for a real letterboxing bash. This is a unique opportunity with letterboxers from all over the country so feel free to send HH with specific instructions (i.e. travel to New York, visit 10 or more sates) be creative, with nearly 300+ letterboxers the possibilities are endless.

I want to really show our talent so if anyone has some great hidden in plain sight boxes, I promise to keep them safe and return them with a bunch of new stamps and entries. So that is my primary reason for such a request, but I must confess that a secondary reason is that I have been so busy with work, family and other non-LB obligations that I haven't been able to cretae any stuff to bring. So if you have the time please help a brother out. I promise it will be worth your trouble. Oh and did I say the event is Sept 14 and I would need everything by next Thursday (the 11th). Sorry for the late warning but I wasn't 100% sure I was going until this week. Thanks in advance for all your help.

P.S. I will be flying out of K.C. so if any folks up there want to provide something for me to transport to the gathering, let me know and we can coordinate a pick up prior to departure.



This is just a reminder that I've set aside Friday, Sept. 26 from 5 p.m. to a little past midnight as a Devil's Icebox Wild Cave Tour at Rock Bridge Memorial State Park for letterboxers and other friends. If you are interested in attending, please contact me directly through LBNA.

Please refer to for details about the tour itself.
