Hike Distance?

Note: This box reported missing on 7/1/06. This is one of Pupp's favs so it will be replaced soon.

Nashoba is Choctaw for Wolf. Jenn is Choctaw and very proud of it. The wolf is one of my totem animals. I also love the PNW. So, this stamp is a celebration of these few facts.

At the Steamboat Landing Park, find the sign about "Stocking the Pantry".

Why is it that everything along the gorge is Lewis and Clark this and Lewis and Clark that? They didn't discover this great country. There were already many people living here.

From the sign, go 50 short steps uphill which is also downriver. Nashoba Letterbox lives here. I hope you enjoy it. Drop me a line, I love hearing how the box is doing and if you liked it.

This box is located outside, by a river, some trees, and by some berry bushes. In other words, it's in a natural environment. There are bugs, snakes, rabbits and other natural critters living there. I assume that you are either an adult or with an adult. There may also be cars nearby. Therefore, you would prolly already know that bugs bite, snakes slither and sometimes curl up around letterboxes or just cross the path and scare you, and rabbits are terribly distracting to letterboxing dogs. Cars can kill. Try to stay out from under their tires. So, do what you must to keep safe and sane. And if you decided to leave my letterbox for another day, or never visit again, it's ok. Take care of yourself.

Many of my boxes are located on very short walks or sometimes in open spaces for a reason. I have a bad knee and can't do the hiking that I would like to do. I try to have boxes that people with mobility issues can enjoy. Many times, the hard part of my boxes is the discretion piece. If I can get a box in there without anyone seeing, then I think you might be able to get it out the same way. Sometimes I have to wait a while to get the timing down. Isn't it fun to be sneaky?
