About Letterboxing

Letterboxing is an intriguing “treasure hunt” style outdoor activity. Letterboxers hide small, weatherproof boxes in publicly-accessible places (like parks) and post clues to finding the box online on one of several Web sites. However, clues to finding some of the most highly-sought boxes are passed around by word of mouth.

There are about 60,000 active letterboxes listed on LbNA alone. Individual letterboxes usually contain a log book, an often hand-carved rubber stamp and occasionally contain an ink pad. Finders make an imprint of the letterbox’s stamp on their personal log book, and leave an imprint of their personal stamp on the letterbox’s logbook.

Tip of the Day

When you find a letterbox that needs some repair, please use the Status button on the clue page to set the date that you found the box, describe the problem, then check the First Aid check box. An icon of a first aid kit shows on the clue page. Whoever repairs it (or later finds that it has been repaired) can use the same checkbox to clear the First Aid needed status.
