Our Amazing Hostess Boxer Lover47

This past weekend Lizman (Alex) a friend of his from school (Eric) and I drove from Boise to attend the Wasatch Summer Letterboxing Event hosted by Boxer Lover47 in Ogden, Utah. The two day event was an opportunity to box in and around the Ogden area (there are almost 100 boxes within 30 miles of Ogden). In addition Boxer Lover47 planned a BBQ Saturday night, breakfast Sunday morning and a yard full of boxes for us to find with a wide variety of clues to challenge our mental dexterity. Thank goodness she left some cypher books on the tables! After a day on the trails in the hot sun there was not a lot left of us mentally.

It was fantastic to see that many of our Idaho friends were able to attend, to hook up with our friends from Utah and to meet boxers that we might not have outside of Idaho. All in all it was a great mix of Letterboxers and being a medium sized event allowed us to have time to visit without being totally overwhelmed.

Boxer Lover47 (and her family) were amazing hosts taking care of everyone’s needs and opening both the inside and outside of their home to all who came. We invaded her beautiful home for several days and were so thankful for her kindness and amazing hospitality. I don’t think anyone one left without a smile on their face, a full stomach and lots of finds to log. Thank you bunches and bunches Boxer Lover47!
