According to AtlasQuest.com: “Letterboxing is an intriguing pastime combining artistic ability with "treasure-hunts" in parks, forests, and cities around the world. Participants seek out hidden letterboxes by cracking codes and following clues. The prize: an image from a miniature piece of art known as a rubber stamp—usually a unique, hand-carved creation.
“Letterboxers stamp their discoveries in a personal journal, then use their own rubber stamp, called a signature stamp, by stamping it into the logbook found with the letterbox, perhaps writing a note about the weather or their adventures in finding the letterbox.”
Letterboxing is free and family-friendly!

Three Letterboxes (with Pirate image stamps) will be hidden and available for finding in Palmyra, NY, from August 2-7 in conjunction with Palmyra Pirate Weekend (August 7-8).

No Experience Necessary!! All you need is a couple of pieces of paper and a pen. While regular Letterboxes have their own rubber stamp (called a “Personal Stamp”), novices can simply sign or initial the Letterbox’s log book.

Clues for the Letterboxes will be available at Village Bookmarket, 207 East Main St., Palmyra, and on AtlasQuest.com beginning Monday, August 2. Call Village Bookmarket with any questions or for more information, 315-597-0210.
