Letterboxing is what Hal & I like to do together . . .

Uncle Tom's Cabin
Dresden, ON
If you have never tried Letterboxing before, you don't know what you are missing.  No matter what your age or abilities, there are letterboxes out there just for you.  It is a treasure hunt, hike, mystery and adventure all rolled into one.  My favourite website for Letterboxing is Atlas Quest.  Check it out if you would like to learn more about this hobby.

On December 30 & 31 Hal and I went to Wallaceburg to visit his family.  We had a really wonderful time.  But of course we couldn't take a straight road to Wallaceburg or even back home to St. Thomas.  We made many stops along the way.

On the way to Wallaceburg we stopped in Dresden (Hal's home town) to plant two letterboxes:  The Cannery and Uncle Tom's Rest.  Unless you are an experienced boxer, you won't be able to see the clues to these boxes, but please feel free to contact me for the clues.

On the way home we tried for McKellar Tract Wildfowl near Brigden, our second attempt and no luck.  Next stop was Wyoming Rail Station in Wyoming.  We found a teepee, we found a chickadee, but again we struck out and didn`t find the box.  We sure had a lot of fun trying though.


Our final stop was to pick up Musical Socks in Strathroy.  We found it!!!!!!

We also did some snarfing on our drive.  Want to know what snarfing is?  Check out http://www.markeroni.com/ .

We also enjoy a game called geo-dashing and did well in the December contest.  We hope to do even better in January.  During this particular trip we located GDAO-CIXU near Ridgetown, ON.

So how did you make out with Challenge #6.  I'm not a huge fibre user on my pages so I was pretty sure this was an easy challenge for me...
