Letterboxing on the Playa 2010

Hey Letterboxers! remember to list any boxes you hide on www.atlasquest.com a week or so before the start of Burning Man. I know there will be more letterboxes this year than last year. You can list them here as well.

Greetings Pollyanna,

So this letterboxing resembles Geocaching to me.
Familiar?

I got a tv with infinite control of letterboxing.

Very handy.

Basically the same thing, Letterboxing uses personal stamps and I dont' think you really need a GPS to do it. But....if you're into Geocaching, we are having an event out there on Thursday morning 8)

Sorta like geocaching, except that you use written clues instead of GPS, and no trinkets are exchanged. It's artsier-fartsier: rubber-stamp artwork, often quite detailed, is exchanged.
Check out the basics: www.atlasquest.com, or www.letterboxing.org

There are 9 boxes, so far, that will be hidden in Black Rock City. (Way better than geocaching, imho)

That last entry appears to be spam.


For you letterboxers out there, there will be more boxes planted in BRC this year and we hope you will plant some too!
