links for my plants, a diary of my finds, listings of exchanges and
spoiler photos of my stamps. This has been a lot of work, but quite
a bit of fun, too. I've been mad at myself for not saving copies of
my "find reports" that I send to the placers. On my "finds" page,
I've tried to recreate those emails from my memory and the notes I
took in my log book. It's been a great journey into the past to
relive some of these finds. I haven't been out boxing for several
weeks, so this has been a little bit of a "fix" for me. I hope you
enjoy this blog. Please let me know if there's anything else you'd
like to see here.

have a personal letterboxing website or blog you'd like to share? If
so, post the link here or drop me an email with the URL.
Do you have a favorite "resource" site you use all the time in your
boxing adventures? Maybe a favorite mapping program, park website,
puzzle solver, topo map or something else noteworthy? Again, post
the link here or drop me an email. I'd love to share the links with

I'm just getting started setting up this blog. I have clues to all of my letterboxes posted. I'd love to hear any suggestions for other things I should add to this page.
I would like to link my site to other local letterboxers in the Michigan or Great Lakes area! Do you have a website or blog you'd like me to link? If so, send it over and I'll post it straight away! (Straight away? I think I just channelled a Brit!) I take that back, I'll post it right away!
Nearest City: Brownstown
When you’re ready to go home, turn right past the bench and continue along your way to finish your journey. Keep walking for a while! Don’t let that big black dog scare you. He won’t bite! Just one last boardwalk and your car should be in sight.
Notes: I thought there was a beach here, but it turns out there isn’t! So for the purposes of my “accessories”, please pretend the umbrellas at the wave pool have stripes and that the concrete is really sand! =). If you’re looking for a good beach in the area, Sterling State Park is about 15 miles south. Take I-75 to exit 15. I heard a rumor that there may be a box located there!
This box is completely airtight and water proof when closed correctly. Please take care that there is no plastic or dirt between the lid seal and box. Snap all four latches completely when closing.
Do not place this box inside of a plastic bag.
Note, there is no inkpad inside of this box! Remember to bring your own! If you’re creative, you may want to bring markers so that you can color the individual parts and pieces of these stamps appropriately. The Gnome stamp remains the same all year, but the scenery and accessories vary for each homestead. You can use any or all of the accessories to decorate your scene. If you plan to visit all four locations throughout the year, you should use at least one of the accessories, so you can differentiate the Gnome from place to place.
This box is very tightly packed and needs to be closed properly to be watertight. Please do not place hitchhikers in this box.
