In 2010 Familyof6 hosted a Winter Olympics letterboxing event in Michigan. Bahama Mama & Martin Mon had the Caribbean vibe in their soul that year and were proud to represent The Bahamas at the event. It was the first time the island nation participated in a WINTER Olympics. We had a lot of fun with our letterboxing pals that weekend! If you want to learn more about it, go to

Our team stamp has languished in various drawers and totes over the years, so we finally decided to plant it somewhere as a permanent stamp. We put it in the Tucson park that most reminds of us of the Bahamas. Think of warm, blue water surrounded by swaying palms.

Here are the lyrics from our team song (by the B-Men) for inspiration:

You Can Get It

You can get it, you can get it
You can have it all
You can win it
Never have to fall
If the fire's in your eyes (If the fire's in your eyes)
Every day is a brand new start
You can get it, you can get it
You can take the prize
You can own it
If hope is in your eyes
All you got to do is fight (All you got to do is fight)
You can get it, you can get it, you can get it, you can get it tonight

Reach for the highest, brightest star
You'll be sure to catch the moon
All your dreams are possible
And you'll get there soon (yeah, you'll get there)

Park in the lot and head over to enjoy the “ocean” views. Take the trail west toward some seasonal ponds. Take a right at the fork and another right at the next fork. Stay straight when the asphalt turns left. Continue on the sandy path toward a gate, but stop when you see a tall, many-armed saguaro on your left. Go to it and then take ~28 steps on a bearing of 250° to reach a double barrel. Now take 5 steps on a bearing of 220°. The Bahamas team stamp is lounging under a cholla skeleton and rocks.

If you hunt for this box, we'd appreciate an email message to let us know how the box is doing. Thanks!
