Our Hiking and Letterboxing Adventure


I absolutely LOVE hiking!!! As part of our hiking adventure, the boys and I decided to include letterboxing. Each of us carved our signature stamps, and have our log books set to go. I am proud to announce that we found our first letterbox!!! What an exciting experience! Each of us stamped our signature stamp, along with a comment in the planter's logbook......then, we stamped the planter's stamp into our logbooks.

After eating a light snack, we decided to venture off in search of our second letterbox. Josiah was the first person to find it!!

Here is an excellent book that we checked out from our local library:

If you are interested in a bit of the history of letterboxing, read this webpage:

Next week, we will look for more letterboxes in some of the hiking trails in our area. Will post when we find more.

Friday (June 4th), we plan to go hiking through the Stone Mountain trails. We're taking our fur-babes with us and look forward to having a wonderful time.



Josiah (above) and Dustin (below) are enjoying the logbook from the letterbox.

I'll go look at the links. My daughter lives in Simi Valley, CA so surely someone is doing something like this near there. That would be a fun summer adventure! Thanks for the links.

Hi, I was so excited to see your blog.
I am a J.W living in B.C. Canada.
When I saw the baptism pictures I instantly knew you were one as well.
I also homeschool my two children. The letterboxing seems very interesting. I'll have to have a look and see if there is any near where I live.

My comment is about ASL. I have a deaf aunt, an uncle, and some cousins. I took several courses in ASL and really enjoyed it. Thanks for taking an interest in their situation.
