This is a series of 6 letterboxes whose stamps are all insects. Purists can stop reading now. These are store bought stamps. We have neither the talent to carve our own nor the money to have the stamps custom made, so store bought is what you get with us.

This is our second set of letterboxes that we are placing, so we are sticking with micros. Each stamp is hidden in a black 35mm film container with a grey lid. This should keep things dry. It is a tight fit for the log and the stamp, so please put the pieces back together the way you found them and make sure the lid is on securely. Also because of size the log will not accomodate a stamp that is larger than 1 3/4" on both sides. Finally, bring your own ink pad.

We are very open to comments and suggestions from people who do these letterboxes, so feel free to email us at any time.

Finally I will mention that this is a short hike. This is not suitable for bikes but dogs are allowed. We would rate the difficulty as easy as there is no climbing or bushwhacking involved.
