(The above photo is not a clue. It's a scene you might see along the way if you're lucky.)
2/20/12 - We checked our box today and it's just fine.
6/5/09: A brief history of this box: We planted it in November, 2008. It was found by three people that we know of, but it was confirmed missing in March 2009 (poor planting on our part). We made a new box with the same stamp image as the last box, and fellow boxers SoNew and Tadtoo found a new hiding place for it. We are very grateful to SoNew and Tadtoo for all the time they spent looking for a new spot and for the photos they took for the new clue. Now on with the box.
Our family has visited beautiful St. Joseph on the Lake Michigan shore at least once every year since 1999. This letterboxing journey will take you past just a few of our favorite places in St. Joe. There are many others, like Silver Beach, Schu's, Clementine's, the library, Caffe Tosi's, the variety store, Forever Books, Broadstreet Cafe, the Boulevard Inn, we could go on and on and on...
We'd like to thank Ypsitucky Queen and Princess Rachel for their technical assistance in posting the picture clues. And we'd like to thank St. Joseph Today for the inspiration for the stamp.
Zoom in on any of the pictures if you need a better view.
Important Note: The pictures you see displayed here on LbNA are the correct pictures in the correct order. If you zoom in you will be taken to PhotoBucket, which is fine, but resist the temptation to "View Album" in PhotoBucket. The last 6 photos are on a different album in PhotoBucket because those were new photos when the box got replanted. They're on a different person's account, and I really can't link the two different albums.
And if you *really* don't like photo clues, a written version is available upon request. But we don't think it's as cool.
Total distance from start to finish is about 1.25 miles.
Since we're not local, if you notice the log book is full or there's another problem with the box, we would really appreciate it if you contacted us. Thanks!
