The Cranmere Pool Letterbox - where it all began!

Our Home Page

Email me with your first find so that you too may be included on this page.

Note: The letterboxers names under each state is in the order that I received them! Thanks.

This list contains the very first box you found to start your letterboxing career - not a box that you found as a First Finder!

Don't forget to send us the date you found the box, your trail name, the state in which you reside and the name and state of that first box.

" . . . why do i letterbox? because it is in my blood. i hope the thrill of finding a tupperware box never dies for me. i don't care if these boxes are in the woods, in a planter outside a cvs, in my mailbox, on the internet, up a tree, in a lake, oh gosh the list could go on and on. " Uneksia
