If you do not know what letterboxing is, it's an activity much like geo-caching. You should have a rubber stamp, an ink pad, and a small notebook. I use an index card notebook because the ink doesn't show through as easily. So you follow directions to find a box containing a rubber stamp, and a notebook. You stamp their book with your stamp and your book with theirs, and usually sign the date and whatnot in both.
Ok. So here's the deal for this swap.
You visit the site www.letterboxing.org, find a box in your area. Make sure to read a bit and find out if it's still "active". People will post if it's missing or something is wrong with it so be sure to keep an eye out for that.
What I would like to do, is use a flat notecard, or both faces of a regular notecard. On the first facing, you should stamp your stamp and tell us a bit about why it is significant to you. BE SURE AND TAKE YOUR NOTECARD ON THE ADVENTURE WITH YOU! As well as your notebook :) You should stamp whatever stamp you find on the notecard, and tell your partner about your adventure! If you do forget your notecard, make sure you just stamp an extra page to include with your note!
I hope this all makes sense! If you have any questions, or anything is unclear, please ask me! This is my first time hosting a swap, so I'm sure there is room for improvement. I'm hoping to have experienced letterboxers, as well as people who have never heard of it! I love finding new things to do, and love knowing that I've shown someone something new as well! I hope we all have fun with this!
I will be checking profiles for ratings. If you are an unrated user, please have a well-filled out profile. I will angel if someone gets flaked on.
Happy boxing :) (and swapping of course)
