Welcome to my Nerd-dom: Letterboxing

It's a really rainy day outside, not a good day for letterboxing.  

What is letterboxing, you ask?  Well, simply put, it's a scavenger hunt.  Each person has a stamp, notebook, and a trailname-kinda like a gamer tag- and they find these "boxes" hidden out in nature.  In this box is a stamp and logbook placed by another letterboxer.  You stamp the box's logbook and stamp your logbook with the box's stamp.  Then you put it all back how you found it and go find another one.  

Anyway.  It's not a good idea to go hiking in the rain with a 9,7,6, and 1 year old in the cold just to get a stamp.  So I decided to make one.

I read this phrase on Pinterest: "An arrow can only be released by first pulling it back.  When life pulls you back, it simply means you're launching into something amazing."  I couldn't find it's source, but I really liked it and found it very inspiring.  

The only problem is I don't know what type of box to put it in.  I have three choices:

I really want to use the magnetic key box, but the location where I want to place the box might not have any good hiding spots.  The other two...well, it wouldn't be a huge problem, but is it the right one?

Let me know your thoughts!


  1. I'd only use the key box in an inside location. Otherwise, I'd use the lock and lock. The ziplocks always leak and ruin your logbook. :P

  2. I was thinking about putting the key box under my mailbox...I've actually gotten a box like that and thought it was pretty cool.
