117. PETE'S F5000 A short walk on the Split Rock Loop in Frances Carter Preserve off Carolina Back Road (Rte 112) in Charlestown, RI

RETIRED

This box was planted in celebration of the 5000th box that Pete found on June 25th. It is in the same preserve as Wanda's 50th birthday boxes, RI Red and Purple. To get to this preserve take Rte 112 north from Rte 1 or south from Rte 138 until you see the sign and smallish parking lot on the west side of the road.

From the sign board with map, take the yellow blazed trail just a short distance to the white blazed loop on the left. Go past some split rocks and signposts #3 and #4. On your way to #5, note the stonewall with a white blaze whose end the trail passes on the right. Gently removing one small rock low on this end of the wall will reveal a microbox with a record of Pete's letterboxing achievement.

Please replace the stone carefully, so that there is no evidence of tampering. Then continue on the loop to #5, where you may either turn right on yellow to return to your car, or turn left on yellow to collect Wanda's 50th birthday outfit!



149. WANDA'S F10000 An "add-on" to Pete's F5000 on the same loop in the same place: Frances Carter Preserve off Carolina Back Road (Rte 112) in Charlestown, RI

RETIRED

Continuing on from Pete's F5000, finish up the Split Rock loop until you once again almost reach the yellow trail. Here at a spot about equidistant from a white blaze on a rock to your left and a post with the number "5" to the right, look low in the stone wall behind one small rock and a scattering of leaves for this little black microbox. Make sure you leave the microbox well hidden and the rock returned to a "natural-looking position".



161. HAPPY DANCING PFX-HEADS A little bit of "poetry" for those who count - privately!

HAPPY DANCING PFX-HEADS
(aka "We Count, Too!")
(but no need for public logins to
spoil the letterboxing mystique!)

Do you keep count? Well, if you do,
we have a special stamp here just for you!
No matter how you manage, or what the current fashion,
as long as counting fits into your letterboxing passion!
No matter when you started, or what your present number,
Just come out and find us, and then come join the rumba!
Come get a little line of proper dancing letters,
dancing up a storm without any sweaters!
So here then is the scoop, without further ado,
Don't be a "party poop", just tell us that it's true
that you keep a good count that's fun, fair and square
and don't cheat yourself out of your fair share!
Just put your numbers down at whereabouts you stand,
and we'll be glad to share with you our happy dancing band!
