treasure hunting

My mom is spending the weekend with us, and today we spent about 6 hours in the car tracking down historical markers and letterboxes. We had a lot of fun and found some really cool spots off the beaten path.

 letterboxing at Jennings Mountain Cemetery

Read more about letter boxing here. And this site and this site are cool places to keep track of historical markers you've visited. If you're in Texas, you can look up historical markers here.

  1. Our family also are "Historical Marker HUNTERS". Once we have them located and photographed - - we up-load them to ("Historical Markers Data Base".)

    We never pass up any War Memorial / Honor Roll. They too are needed on HMdb.

    Have a Grate "Marker HUNT".
