I HEART Letterboxing!

Aunt Bev and Uncle Don introduced us to letterboxing!  It was love at first hunt! 

Letterboxing is an intriguing pastime combining artistic ability with "treasure-hunts" in parks, forests, and cities around the world. Participants seek out hidden letterboxes by cracking codes and following clues. The prize: an image from a miniature piece of art known as a rubber stamp—usually a unique, hand-carved creation.

Letterboxers stamp their discoveries in a personal journal, then use their own rubber stamp, called a signature stamp, to stamp into the letterbox's logbook. Atlas Quest started as a set of tools for letterboxers, but has grown into a community of letterboxers.
