Tucson Letterboxers Gathering

Sunday started off cold and rainy but that didn't deter 38 resolute letterboxers from attending the 5th Annual Tucson Letterboxers Gathering at a local Tucson park.

What fun to meet the folks behind the boxes they've planted or their stamp entries in journals in boxes I've found. Mysterious trail names like AZRoadie, The Pink Ladies, Baqash, and so on seem more real now that I've met the actual folks.

My own trail name June S. is awfully boring, so I guess I'll work out something with a bit more interest. It has to relate to mermaids since a mermaid tail is my signature stamp (my stamp and carving tutorial is located here). You can see the bag I made for my letterboxing kit here.

We now have a letterboxing patch for the Southwest. Last week we considered and voted on which of 10 design submissions would represent our region. The winning design is shown in the photo above.

Sunday was a wonderful day of new and old friends sharing great food while regaling each other with tales of letterboxing adventures and then going off to discover new boxes hidden in the park.
