Keeping a Watchful Eye

For those of you who have found Ode to Charlotte, please be on the lookout the next few weeks. I have noticed signs that suggest some construction maybe about to take place in her vicinity.

I do not think the box is in harm's way, but you never know with these things. So, if you happen to be passing by and notice that she is in sudden jeopardy, please let me know, or, if there's no time, feel free to pull her yourself. Thanks for your help.

McMonkeys are Moving!

I have thought for a while now that is unfair to have so many great boxers here in the Columbia area and so few in other parts of the state. In an effort to share the wealth of knowledge I have decided to move. OK, not REALLY for that reason, but we are moving. My husband has accepted a job with KBLV 99.7 in Mission, Kansas. He will be leaving soon. The little monkeys and I will be here until around the first of July. We are excited about our new adventure. (Well, most of us are) I am pleased that we are already friends with The Outdoor Girls since we will be living near them. I have lots of family here in Columbia and will be back OFTEN. We will be arriving on The Hogwarts Express the first weekend in May and look forward to seeing everyone then. (Have you RSVP'd on AQ yet for this event? If not, please do so!) Talk to you all then if not before!

Happy Easter everyone

Just wanted to say Happy Easter to everyone. The weather is turning warmer and thoughts of letterboxing should be playing in everyone's mind. Now get out there and box!

CONTESTS! and other Gathering updates

In case you missed it the first time around, there will be two contests at the Spring Gathering.

The first is a Creatures in Myths and Legends Hitchhiker contest: Create a hitchhiker based on a mythical beast (dragon, unicorn, hippogriff, etc) or an ordinary beast about which a legend had been created (Raven, Coyote, etc).

The second contest is a Hidden in Plain Sight contest (HIPS). Create a box that can be hidden in plain sight at the spring gathering. An example would be an otherwise ordinary-looking cookie jar on the potluck table that contains a logbook and stamp instead of cookies.

Winners will be voted on and prizes award on Saturday afternoon of the Gathering.

If you plan on camping at the regular campground, book your site now as there are only about five left. If you wish to camp in the primitive scout area (tents only), no reservations are necessary, but this campsite will be available to us only on Saturday night (not Friday).
