This blog contains a list of all the boxes that I have planted. It includes when, where and the status of the box. You can click on the name of any of the boxes to be taken to the clues at Atlas Quest. I hope you enjoy finding them as much as I enjoyed planting them.

Letterboxes Planted 1 - 50

40 letterboxes. That's how many I had found when I felt like I had learned enough about letterboxing that I could plant my own. I started letterboxing in February 2006 and in April 2006 I planted my first box - Chimney Rock. For two months I tried to pay close attention to detail on all the boxes I had found. With each box that I found, I would make a note of what the box was like (ie: size, shape, type of container, logbook, was it still closing well, etc, etc, etc). I used this information to decide how I wanted to make my boxes. Lock & Lock boxes won out. All my boxes are made with Lock & Lock boxes and I have templates to make my logbooks so that they fit the box perfectly. I also try to keep a theme to my boxes connecting the stamp, information and area so that not only do you find a letterbox . . . you may just learn something along the way.
So far I have 24 boxes planted. Below you will find a list and links to my boxes. I hope you enjoy hunting for these boxes, please e-mail me when you find one and let me know what you think. My e-mail address is
