As waves of warmth blew threw parts of the US, families threw themselves outdoors after a period of January hibernation.
If you’re getting your Spring weekend calendar ready or looking for ideas to escape the indoors, check out Letterboxing. It’s the low-tech version of Geocaching (pronounced geo-cashing).

Letterboxing Stamp by Togood2b4gotton

So what is Letterboxing? It’s an outdoor treasure hunt of sorts where you go on a search to find a hidden box and leave your “personal stamp” (rubber stamp, that is) in a book that is hidden in a location by another kid citizen playing in this global game. Geocaching is similar but you use a GPS system to find the stash.
Magpie Musing and her four-year-old girlie went on their first Letterbox adventure this past weekend. Magpie admitted that her daughter was a bit too young to appreciate the purpose of the experience but had fun time, nevertheless.
