Today we went letterboxing.  Letterboxing is a hobby where you..you..uh…it’s sort of  hard to explain. 

  1. Go to www.atlasquest.com and create an account.  You will need a pen, stamp, logbook, and something to hold it all.
  2. On the website, look for letterbox clues.
  3. Print the clues and set out.
  4. Follow the clues and find the letterbox.
  5. Stamp the logbook that is in the box.
  6. Write your letterbox initials and date near your stamp.
  7. Hide the box in the same spot.
  8. You have successfully found your first letterbox!

So yeah, that’s what we did today.


Hello!  Emily here.  I just wanted to point out that we are actually using letterboxing as an educational activity. 😉  For example, we went to a park devoted to Meck Deck today to learn more about the document annnnnd find letterboxes. 😀
