The Kurdziel Family
Letterboxing Homepage
Welcome to the Kurdziel family homepage dedicated to the sport of letterboxing.  Letterboxing is an intriguing combination of treasure hunt, hiking and orienteering.  It gives our family an excuse to try out new areas for hiking while in pursuit of new stamps for our journals.  In addition, it provides us with a creative outlet for trying stamp carving and sharing our favorite spots with others.

For more detailed information on how to get involved in letterboxing and a listing of all the published letterbox clues check out
www.letterboxing.org, the Letterboxing North America website.  There is also a yahoogroups talklist with up to date information and conservations about the world of letterboxing.

Now for our boxes...

Magic Tree House Series -  These letterboxes are loosely based on the series of chapter books by Mary Pope Osborne.  If you have never read them we highly recommend these books for young readers with a sense of adventure.  The author takes her two main characters in the book, Jack and Annie, to exotic places and times, in a Magic Tree House belonging to Morgan Le Fay.

The Magic Tree House Hitchhik

We created this hitchhiker to transport letterboxers to enchanted places.  It began its journey on 2 Dec 00 at the Lost Lake letterbox at Westwoods.


Rhus Radica

An insidious interloper that seems to make its presence felt at nearly all of our boxes (and others' as well). Both sought after and highly avoided at the same time..


Bubble G

Alicia (8 years old) carved this sticky little wanderer after reading that gum stuck to the bottom of your shoe travels an average of 1.5 miles before coming off
.


Take a look at our border.  Remember when hiking in New England - leaves of three, leave them be...  Hopefully that won't refer to our website.
