Happy Victoria Day long weekend!

There's nothing quite like a long weekend to get away from work and get back to important things. Like letterboxing.  This weekend, I went with a good friend of mine up to Milton to try our hands at the Ancient Greek Revellers series. We were successful and the carves and locations were fantastic.  We got a beautiful tour of the Mt. Nemo conservation area, as well as feasted upon by hungry black flies.  My ankles are still itching, but it was well worth it!

We were going to try some of the other Ancient Greek series, but it took us a lot longer than expected to ferret out these three boxes.  We had a great time though and were given some beautiful views as compensation for our time ;)

I'm now only two boxes away from having found 100 - the mini-meet scheduled for this coming weekend in St. Thomas should cure that.

However, the rain has started back up once again, so it's back to stamp carving yet again.  This means, however, that I have a whole stack of carves just waiting to be planted, so it's time for making the boxes and logbooks... I've tried my hand at making some log books as I have a terrible time finding any worth buying that are the right size. I'm trying to make the logbook part a little more enjoyable, and it's going well so far.  Luckily, I find a place before I begin to create a new box, so all these guys have homes, I just need some time to get out there.
