Letterbox of the Week: Devil's Kitchen

I just saw a note on Atlasquest that my Devil's Kitchen box is the AQ letterbox of the week!
It's my first letterbox, still my favorite clue I've ever written, and has survived in the same location for five years. if you haven't found it yet, it's a great winter hike!

(who's had to put letterboxing on hold for more than a year due to the new baby who's now nine months old).

Maintenance Mayhem

Hello everyone, I wanted to say that I am trying to at least get back out and check all of my boxes over the coming months and maybe even replacing a few that have been pulled or went missing.

For those of you who have been out along the Katy, I recently relocated Sadako's Story and the Hen of the Woods box. If you have found them, there is no need to find them again as they have only been slightly moved, one to avoid potential flooding and another because its hidey hole literally disintegrated after 4 years.

The Chicken of the Woods box is currently pulled for the same reason. I hope to get it back out there in the next week or two. When I found it, it was just sitting in a pile of sawdust. The bonus box was also very exposed as the tree holding it had fallen over, luckily the box was just sitting in the mud.

Also, for those of you who had found either my Blackberry Hill or Diana Bend box (which is part of an "unnamed" series) and were a little confused when you looked at the contents, let me explain. I planted both of those at the same time in the dead of winter and I think the cold went to my head, becuase this summer when I was out picking blackberries and checked in on these I realized, I had placed each box in the other one's place. I switched them back, so now they are correctly where they need to be. If you only had found one, I would suggest going back to the hiding sport as now there should be a new box (the original) there for you to log.

I know everyone has gotten very busy this past year, so I thought I would see if anyone wanted to get together and catch up while checking boxes for maintenance. If so drop me a line and we can get out and hit a few and make sure the great boxes in our area are safe and sound for the next finders.

Need help

I have some boxes that are mostly finished that go aroudn Jeff City. I have moved about two hours north can can't seem to get these planted. Is there anyone interested in finishing this for me? The stamps are carved and have log books to go with them. I just need them sort of put together (I have containers) and planted. Any takers?

I can mail the package or perhaps meet you if I am coming that way. I have had these stamps for almost 2 years and can't seem to get them planted!!

Just To Get the Ball Rolling ...

It sounds like we have some interest in a "low key" gathering. I'm going to toss out some ideas just to start a discussion.

How about a picnic/potluck type thing on a Saturday maybe at one of Columbia's parks, Rock Bridge, or? We might want to reserve a shelter. Dates that would work for me are May 22, June 12 or June 19.

I'd really just like to reconnect with some of you as well as meet you newer folks in lieu of contests or frenzied running around collecting stamps. Some folks have young children. Perhaps several of you would like to bring an activity for the kids and take turns with the kids so that everyone would have some time with the adults.

It might be good to try to update the status of as many of our local boxes as possible. Finders and box placers could exchange information. I know this would help me get my boxes up to date.

So go ahead pick this all apart or add some more input. Let's have an LB reunion!

(Lnd Crzr, are you out there?)

Anyone here?

I used to follow this blog a couple years ago. I have moved and had to set letterboxing aside for a while. Now I picked up my stuff and carved a few. Then decided to check this site to see what is going on. Sad to see no posts since July 2009!

Is anyone still here?
