The Buzz: Starbucks Letterbox was originally planted in April 2007. Somewhere along the line it disappeared. This weekend I re-carved the image and have returned the box to its original hiding spot (tempting fate that it will be left undisturbed). Although I carved the same image again the original image was a simple outline. The new image I “carved out” to show more detail. When I compared the two I think the new image is a huge improvement over the old. The box is hidden under leaves and is ready for visitors once again! I would invite boxers who have already found the box to visit again and grab the new image.

The Dancing Dog Coffee Shop went out of business in 2008 and sadly the original Letterboxing went missing not too long after the shop closed. I thought the Dancing Dog was just as cute as a button so I planned on re-carving the image and eventually re-planting the box. Today I finally re-carved the image of the Dancing Dog opened my logbook from April 2007 and low and behold I discovered that I had carved a different image of the Dancing Dog. Although both were from the coffee shop that closed I somehow managed to forget which one I had carved originally and ended up with the other image. My original carving was more of an outline. This new carving is “carved out”. I encourage past finders to find the new Dancing Dog. In addition to the carving changing he is also in a “Hit and Run” magnetic container and does not have a logbook. He has also moved from his original location since the coffee shop is gone. The closest coffee shop is across the street inside Fred Meyer in case you need a caffeine fix.
