"Letterboxing is an intriguing pastime combining navigational skills and rubber stamp artistry in a charming "treasure hunt" style outdoor quest. A wide variety of adventures can be found to suit all ages and experience levels."
X marks the spot!
Years ago my daughter (in the photos above) introduced me to Letterboxing. It was a hobby of hers and we just happened to be going somewhere where a box was hidden - Historic Spanish Point in Osprey Florida.
It turned out to be a lot of fun! It felt risky being all sneaky and having lookouts to be sure nobody saw us. Of course we weren't doing a thing that would have got us in any kind of trouble, but it still held that kind of "not getting caught" excitement!
I haven't continued it after that day but I can definitely see why people enjoy playing. It was very popular at one time, I wonder if anyone still plays - anyone else ever heard of it?
Go HERE to read about Letterboxing in North America or HERE for general info. Maybe you will want to join in the Letterboxing fun!
What more do you expect for the letter X?! :-P
