Hello Again!

Sunrise

I’m not exactly sure how I got here… But I seem to be deep in to my third month of life chaos and craziness, and I’m just barely keeping up with my regular life necessities, so the blog has had to take a backseat.

Unfortunately, with all this chaos, a bunch of things have joined the blog in the backseat… Like my health and fitness goals, my plan to have monthly challenges and report on them, and keeping track of anything at all relating to my goals for 2017… I’d like to change that, so I’m going to try and focus on that in the next little while here, and will hopefully get my sh*t together enough to actually post about it too!

In the meantime, I thought I’d share a little about my new found pastime!  (I know it seems counter intuitive that I would start something new when I can’t keep up with my current commitments, but whatever… Don’t judge…)

Have you ever heard of letterboxing?  I learned about it from Melody at the Minimalists Next Door, and had to do some research… It’s basically like a treasure hunt for adults… with online clues… (if you are interested, check out this site and this site… and if you know of more resources for this fun activity, please let me know in the comments!  Yes, this is my new obsession…)

And so on my most recent work trip, I decided to see if there were any letterboxes on the way up, or nearby where I was staying.  I had a couple misses, either I suck and searching, or the letterboxes were no longer where they were supposed to be… But… I did have one success!

 

I found the Revelstoke Grizzly!  And so I have my first stamp in my new letterboxing notebook!

Hopefully this is the start of something fun that I can continue to search out both at home, and when I’m on the road for work.

Are you a letterboxer?  Have you heard of letterboxing?

  1. Ha, what synchronicity – I’ve just moved to Dartmoor & discovered letterboxing!

    I haven’t been out looking yet *but* when walking pup on the Moors last week I met a man with a rucksack & on a whim asked, with a laugh “Have you got a Travelling Letterbox in there?” And blimey o’reilly, he did!!

    More than that, it was his own Travelling Letterbox which he’d just found by chance that afternoon, having been taken by the last people to the Letterbox he’d been to find. I had chanced upon Ken, ‘The Old Man of the Moor’ 🙂 He was so tickled to have found his Travelling Letterbox, and was full to the brim of excitement with the opportunity to tell me more about the activity. He bubbled over with stories 🙂 So even if I never get around to going in search of Letterboxes, I feel so lucky to have met Ken.

    I love that you posted about this, just a week after my encounter! Have lots of fun – and what a great way to fulfill your health & fitness needs 🙂

    If you’d like to see a pic of Ken, it’s on my Instagram @emma.slow

    Happy stamping! 🙂 x

  2. I’m so glad you gave letterboxing a try! On our first few outings we struck out too. Boxes tend to get lost sometimes. We’ve even found a few where the box survived but the stamp and log book were missing. Like Emma said, health and fitness fall right in line with letterboxing. If you keep at it, you’ll find yourself walking/hiking all over the place in the pursuit of boxes. BTW – our trail name is Operation Pinecone if you want to connect on Atlas Quest. Happy stamping!
