Letterboxing with the Happy Trampers

November 27, 2011

My sister-in-law told us a while back about letterboxing. You get directions from a website  (we use this site) and go on an adventure to find a hidden “letterbox.” You make a stamp and bring your stamp and a notebook with you. The letterboxes have a notepad and a stamp in them too. Once you find the letterbox, you put your stamp in their notebook and their stamp in your notebook. We have gone on a few letterboxing trips over the past few years and they are always fun. Even if you don’t find the letterbox (or its been mistaken for trash and thrown away), we always find new places to explore. Today we went as a family to find one that took us on a little hike:

Nestled in some stumps we found the letterbox. Here we are stamping in the notebook:

O is a pro and knows what to do:

Here is the stamp that we designed. ‘HT’ for Happy Trampers.

This is H’s first letterboxing adventure but he seems to be getting the hang of it:

And then on to some good old fashion tree climbing:
