    Midwest - Letterboxing?

    Minnesotans? Has anyone tried letterboxing? I'm curious because we are going to give it a try and there are several locations here in Minnesota and wondered if anyone else in this area had tried it and wanted to see what you found.

    Do you like adventures Nomad?

    I'm going to grab the bf by the short hairs and make him go letterbox hunting with me, even if it kills him. He's being all negative because we looked up the clues for the ones hidden in our city and they've all been stolen so he's feeling we'll go on a 2 hour hunt and end up finding nothing.

    Is this letterboxing the same thing as geocaching??

    Re: Midwest - Letterboxing?

    I read a little bit about geocaching on the letterboxing website and it seems they are similar.

    Geocaching is with the GPS (An adventure game for GPS users. Individuals and organizations hide caches in various locations all over the world and share the coordinates of these caches on the internet. With a handheld GPS unit, geocachers seek out the cache, and record their find in the cache's logs. Often, small prize items are included in the cache, which may be exchanged with an item brought by the geocacher.)

    With letterboxing you just get the clues for your state and city off the net and then go find the box with the ink and stamp in it.

    Geocaching must be popular because apparently you can get geocaching programs for your cell phone now.

    Have you done the geocaching thing redglitter?

    Hi Rainbow
    I haven't tried geocaching but I think it sounds fun. My friend just tried it for the first time a couple of weeks ago and thought it was great. I think the letterboxing sounds more my speed. I checked it out on the web and there is even a letterbox clue in my city. (and I'm pretty rural)
