I’m trying out the Press This feature on WordPress to bump an old post about my Virtual Letterboxes. I hope people will enjoy armchair letterboxing now that cold weather has settled in.
Since October 12 2007 – the day I posted my first virtual letterbox, I’ve spent many enjoyable hours creating virtual letterbox puzzles. I like to make my virtuals as close to real letterboxing as possible. They involve some type of hunt and you are rewarded with a handcarved stamp image carved and created by me.
My inspiration was the Peat Bank interactive virtual. That’s the first and probably best virtual letterboxing experience I know about. the closest thing to real letterboxing. You hunt the virtual moors for a hidden letterbox box and when find it you get a custom-made stamp image. Years later I created my own interactive virtual: Northern Village Interactive Virtual
It took almost a month to create and perfect. Later Ryan – AQ’s webmaster, made it a lot easier by creating code to emulate this type of virtual hunt. Here’s my other my interactive virtual using Ryan’s Image Search code: Letterbox Gem Under a Large Rock
Here’s a list of my other Virtual letterboxes:
The thing that keeps me motivated to maintain, create and keep active are the online comments I get. Thank you everyone who have left me feedback.
