The Gypsy Travelers - Letterboxing

I love Letterboxing.  Period.  I would love to introduce you to Letterboxing.  It is great for children as well as adults.

I first started boxing back at the turn of the century.  For me it is a great outlet.  I can be creative and carve stamps, make log books, write poems and riddles, go on an adventure, hike mountains, visit hidden waterfalls and caves and just enjoy being out doors.

I first started boxing by belonging to the letterboxing.org web site but have found atlasquest.com to be more useful.  I have yet to become a paying member but I am saving my pennies.

I hope you will give boxing a try.  You just might like it.

On this page you will find information relating to clues and photos about the letterboxes I have planted.


Because I have always loved walking through cemetery - even back when I was in the single digit years - I find planting letterboxes in them especially nice.  They have a name for people like us - Taphophiles. (we even have a web site).  I also like history especially about my family in terms of genealogy. Many of the boxes I plant have a theme.  And graveyards in no exception.  I started by picking cemeteries where my ancestors were buried but then branched.  I even found a gggrandfather's gravestone by accident.
