You have to wake up a virgin each morning. ~Jean-Louis Barrault
I had no idea what letterboxing was until today. I’m still trying to get a grasp on it. I think it’s an adult scavenger hunt in the woods. Sound intriguing?
Barbara Werner suggested I join her on a letterboxing quest for a First. We met in Sellersville, Pa. where she produced a list of clues she pulled off the letterboxing website. Think of it as a treasure map.
These letterboxing sites are all over the country. The tradition started in the 1800’s in England.
Anyway, you have to have a little Eagle Scout and Nancy Drew in you to enjoy this. (I’ve got the Nancy Drew thing. Don’t know about the scout thing. I really hate those sticker vines that scratch you in the woods!)
I couldn’t believe it. We didn’t find one hidden “prize“. We feel pretty sure someone destroyed this letterbox site. Too bad. It was a great place for one. Barbara says it’s the first time this happened to her. (Not a good First for her!) This will call for a redo.
Any of you ever do this before? Know some good letterboxing places?
Well, as I told Barbara, if everything always went exactly as planned, what kind of adventure would it be? At least I got to meet another person determined to do new things in her life this year. Thanks for sharing Barbara.
Okay, no prizes, but a good journey.
