Tidying Things Up!

Well, I arrived home on Thursday (October 26) afternoon from my Texas adventure. After all the usual unpacking and laundry stuff, I had a ton of mail to deal with and shopping for groceries and necessities. In addition there were some letterboxing things to get done.

On the way home I planted
Billy the Kid 2 for Silver Eagle. And yesterday I took a drive up to Taos to plant Kit Carson 2 also by Silver Eagle. It was a wonderful weekend, the weather was absolutely gorgeous. So I also took a drive up to the Santa Fe Ski Area to plant Ski Bear - #2 for Baby Bear. All three of these boxes were replacements for boxes that had gone missing. The clues have been updated and you can get to them by clicking on the box name above.

I also finished putting together a photo album from my trip - you can link to it by clicking on the Texas flag. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Astro D and I also got together to discuss the
Santa Fe Mini Meet that is rapidly approaching. We decided to change the location. The event listing on Atlas Quest doesn't have the information yet - so if you signed up I will contact you directly with the new information and if you sign up in the next week or so I will also make sure you get the information.

Well, it is great to be home and nice to have taken care of a little housekeeping.

Texas Letterboxing Trip (aka Santa Fe to Santa Fe)

Well, I'm off! I'm headed to Tomball, Texas for the Great Book Adventure Letterboxing Event. This is my first event and I'm very excited. I've decided to take some extra time, I will do some letterboxing along the way and visit some good friends that I haven't seen in a while. To read about my adventures click on Texas to the left. Don't expect a daily log - I will write when I get the urge. I will post a couple of photo albums when I return home and can download the pictures - one of my trip and one of the event.

As I sit at my computer researching the multitude of Personal Travelers that will grace The Great Book Adventure in Tomball, TX, I look out my window and throughout the day I have had a couple of visitors.The first was a squirrel. He must believe himself to be a sentry – what is he doing up there. After watching him for a minute I returned to the computer. Just a thought – man there are a lot of Personal Travelers for the event this weekend. I need a break. I walk around the house and go out onto the porch and I see a coyote approaching. I went back into the house and got my camera. Back outside, I hid behind a tree until she was close enough and then “click” – I got the coolest picture – she was looking right at me.

Oh well, I need to finish getting ready, I leave early in the morning to head out to Texas. I will be going to Dallas first to visit a very good friend and then on to Tomball for the Great Book Adventure this weekend. I won’t be writing a day to day account of this trip but there will be postings and hopefully some good pictures. See you on the trails!

Rainy Day Letterboxing

Today was a wet and cold day in Santa Fe and Thomas and I didn't really have the energy to do much. But, we decided to get a letterbox that is only available on Sundays. You've Got Mail letterbox. We found the box without a problem but like I said - it was raining. Luckily the out of car time was minimal. WOW! What a box! rubberpeace and rbrhorno outdid themselves. Great stamp and logbook with all kinds of information and goodies. Thanks guys for brightening up a dull and dreary day.
