We went boxing at Lake Murray!!!

The kids on the trail and Reader Rabbit Boxing Buddy looking over clues!!!
We went boxing today at Lake Murray we set out to nab 9 boxes but we ended up nabbing 3 and will go for the others later... I took some pics while we were out.
I want to thank Penguin Patrol for planting these boxes one was her carving of Gene Autry-a must have and the location is wonderful hubby had fun wandering around this one's location.
Then it was off to the lake and we found Music Woman's beautiful caving of a medieval romantic another must have so glad others are willing to share their stamps with other states like ours. and then down the trail to get a hat-a stamp carved by Allemeyn another must have for any logbook I love the trail and my family had fun trekking it with me...

January 2008 My first halfway across country letterboxing trip !!!

The first of the new year found my two children and I traveling to meet a LOT of WONDERFUL letterboxers in North Carolina at Dixie's event.

I left El Reno, Ok on Thursday morning and we reached Jackson, TN by 5 pm that night. We got up the next morning and made it to Fletcher, NC by around 6 pm. We met with Knit Wit that night at McDonald's.

The next morning we met theseekers1108 and unfortunately while leading me to a park to grab some boxes I left a memorable impression on them...
I wasn't the only one to rearend them that day two hours later another lady got inbetween us and theseekers and tapped them too. What a day that was!!! Mountain Mysteries and Legends was GREAT and the Event stamp was Impressive - great job Raven Wolf (I will have to make it to CO sometime to meet all the wonderful carvers and boxers out there)

Our next adventure is to go back to North Carolina for theseekers1108 Movie Madness: Take 2 event on Jan 31st. My hubby is able to accompany the kids and me this time so hopefully no impressions will be left... We will be stopping in AR to meet Shiloh and do some boxing (I believe he will get a Goofy experience by doing box maintaince with us as we box).

Type at ya later and remember that "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely but to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand and cola in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO!!! What a ride!"

I wore pink for Safari Man and of course COOTIES were involved - ya know those are two things Safari Man loves tremendously!!!

In November 2008

We journeyed to Tulsa, Ok to meet Okie Dog, FishinMom and adairmd on November 1st for an itsy bitsy meet #2!!

There was fun had by all and the goofy group was introduced to geocaching via adairmd(who had the GPS unit) and firemonkey(who planted them).

Thanks Okie Dog for hosting and putting it all together, Hugs and Kisses bunnies had fun at the park too!!

Then Waspslayer and Boots and I were off to Ardmore, OK to meet Penguin Patrol and do some boxing....

we had an eventful 2008!

Let's begin with finding Atlas Quest again in August, I believe it was, and we were off to trip over Tupperware in the woods. (I capitalized Tupperware because I am a consultant for them.) Well then came in the interest to have boxing buddies come visit us and go boxing. OH my Princess Minty and Star Commander were all for that. We received Blue Bunny all the way from Hong Kong and she came with presents it was Easter in September for the kids....
And after doing some boxing with Blue bunny....

We received Hugs and Kisses Bunnies from New York and for a short time we had Blue Bunny and Hugs and Kisses Bunnies but all got along famously because they are cousins-somehow!!

Look what did!!

Hey look I wanted to set one of these up for the new year and I've done it!
