My passion is letterboxing . I love the hunt and then finding some wonderful places to visit. I love the walk in the woods. My husband and I just returned from England where letterboxing started. www.letterboxing.org My boxing name is Pine Tree. 2008 I have also discovered geocaching which is very similar to letterboxing ( sort of a high tech version)
