2000 Letterbox finds!

I am starting the month of September only 5 letterboxes away from 2000! Wow, what a milestone. I thought to myself, I really should make the 2000th box a really neat one. It should be very special....So I have a little while to think this over and I am going to ask for advice from all of you. What letterbox do you think should be my 2000th find?



I don't plan to make any special trips out of Washington State for the next 5 letterboxes, but I will entertain the idea of letterboxes as far away as Portland, OR or Vancouver, BC, Canada, maybe even Spokane, WA.



One box that I have thought of doing for 2000, is the Mailbox Ho! letterbox --it is on Mailbox Peak outside of Seattle and this is a very challenging hike. I know that Ryan would want to come with me to do it. And it would be very challenging for me.

but I am looking forward to what letterboxes you folks think would be worthy of find Number 2000!

Gosh, how exciting - 2000! I think you need to fly into Robin Hood Airport and come and do the Atlas Quest Box on the North York Moors :-)

Looks like a no-brainer! There is beer money in the box for the first finder...and no finders listed. That would be my choice!

Way to go, Amanda!

Wow, I'd heard some about that box, including what you told me, but have never read the directions. If you can manage it, you deserve it, and what a fantastic 2000th find, too! I'd be interested to hear a report on the hike from somebody. What will your other four of the five be, though? And will you leave a hitchhiker? haha...

I am going to be in San Francisco just after Labor Day Weekend Holiday and I hope to go letterboxing there! Could get #2000 that day.

Oh my, Ecuador! Ryan would like that one! But I don't plan to leave the USA for this find, maybe for #3000 or even #2500 :-)

I hear Sound Waves in SF is very nice, very cool spot. I will find out soon enough, but it should be well worth your build up to 2K.
