We did an overnight down to the Texas Hill Country. We did a volksmarch in Waring and then headed out to letterbox on our way to Kerrville where we planned to spend the night.
Our first stop was in Comfort to look for Where’s Hermann? We found the location with the marker. Very sad to reflect on what happened here.
First we looked for 13th Floor Elevators 2. We found the clue.
We found the box and stamp. We continued on to look for Texas Ranger Cemetery. We found the building and the box. Inside was a nice stamp but very large. I had a little trouble getting it all inked.
Also inside was a hitch hiker. One I’d already had before. I brought it to Texas from Wyoming and left it in Kerrville a few months back. Now I found it again so I will relocate it. I went onto AtlasQuest to record the find. It won’t let me record it again. It just replaced the first date with the current date. Probably because the person in between didn’t log their find. I’ve been having trouble with Letterboxing.org but finally got online to record it there also. This particular hitchiker had started out in New Jersey. I think it is a shame the finders never recorded it so the starter would know about it’s journey.
So we had a really good time. We looked for three and found four!! I didn’t plant any this trip. I don’t know if it’s politically correct but I picked up two boxes I’d planted in Waring and retired them. I will plant them somewhere else. It has been a year and no one looked for them so I’m guessing Waring is too far off the beaten path.
