Urban planting

On a recent trip to St. Louis this week, I managed to find Broken Heart but that turned out to be the theme for the trip as the next three boxes I attempted in the fleeting light were all missing. I feel for MO UR4ME, whose heart was truly broken as both of her kid's first boxes were among the M.I.A.

Anyway, it got me thinking. It takes a real knack, some creative ingenuity, or a heck of a lot of planning and searching for that perfect hidey hole to plant boxes in the big metro area parks that survive . The large number of non-boxing person snooping about all year, the limited number of decent covering stones and natural hiding spots, and constant upkeep by mowers and gardeners all greatly increase the likelihood of accidental muggle discovery. My own first attempt in a K.C. park didn't even make it 9 months before it was snatched.

I was thinking of placing a box or two in St. Louis, so I was wondering if any veteran planters had any suggestions or good rules to follow.

Atlasquest Request

Recently we have become atlasquest fans. It is easier to use. It is easier to search for letterboxes, easier to plan a trip. You can also see all the finds for your boxes instead of just the last three. If you don't post your boxes on atlasquest, I would encourage you to do so. It is super easy because you can link LBNA for the clue. We have put Omar Bradley on there, so if you have found it, please log in and record your find. Atlasquest can not replace LBNA but it can be a handy sidekick for it. Make a comment and let everyone know what you think about atlasquest?
ABS Family

BTW- Be looking for three new boxes (5 stamps) from ABS Family to be posted by Turkey Day. Lbing after the meal instead of a nap, priceless.

This is just a reminder that if you told a story at the Haunted Halloween Gathering I need your stories written or printed out asap. We are sending these stories to our dear friend Grace To Your in Maine.

Drifting closer

I updated "Get my drift". I know I am being crafty, but this one can make it through the winter. Besides, I've always savored whines.
