Haming and Boxing

OK I finally have the Ham rig mostly installed. We still have some changes to make, but it is working.

I arrived early in Dayton today and decided to do some letterboxing. There were 3 boxes listed at a location near my Motel, so off I went. I am still using the 1st attempt a a personal stamp as I have not found time to try carving a better one. However, it's better than nothing so that didn't stop me.

The three boxes and many more in the area were planted by "Hale's Angel" and I found that her hand carved stamps are beautiful. The first box was "Love Fairies" very nice and pretty. There was also a "Hitchhiker" in the bag with her stamp. The Hitchhiker "No Two are Alike" was launched in January by "Penguin Patrol". It is a hand carved snowflake stamp and is very nice work. I brought it with me to replant in another box soon. That little extra really perked me up. Then I went on to locate the other two very pretty stamps "Night Time Fairy" and "There's Gnome Place Like Home". Night time is a Fairy in a nightgown while the Gnome is sitting on a toadstool. So it turned out to be a very pleasant day.

I will get a early start in the morning to beat the traffic. I am looking forward to a fun day of browsing.
