Letterboxing Adventures

I must start by saying that this cool adventure wouldn’t have ever happened if it weren’t for the super awesome Jillian. She planned the event and it was so much fun, I can’t wait for the next one.

This post will mostly be pictures so I’ll quickly explain letterboxing. You get a container and put in a stamp (or stamps), a stamp pad, and a booklet with pen. Then you have to create some clues on how to get where you’ve hidden said box.

Jillian got us passports from Saratoga P.L.A.N. that have a few different spots they have set up. You get the clues directly from them and then you stamp your passport booklet at each location.

(See if you can find the creepy crawly in the last picture.)

We did the Bog Meadow Trail and the weather was perfect. We saw really pretty wildflowers and a heron flew over while we were by the bog. It was great to get to walk in nature and the kids had lots of fun running down the trail.

Have you ever tried letterboxing? If not, you should, even if you don’t have kids it’s a lot of fun.

Now I need to remember to bring my own stamp for next time for the little book you sign when you find the box.
