In May 2004, SpringChick presented the Kimball Library Virtual Letterbox as a
challenge for the "Topic of the Week" on the Letterboxing - Great Lakes
talk list. The first to solve it would win a handcarved stamp.
As the winner of the challenge, Delirium proposed a roving virtual
letterbox, a perpetual challenge to the group. She set up a temporary
virtual letterbox (VLB) and challenged members of the LBGLk group not

challenge, should they win.
Acorn won Delirium's challenge--well, SpringChick really won it, but
declined the honor since she had so recently launched the stamp

Dragon) was the first to complete the Mysterious Women VLB Challenge.
I thus became the keeper of the Kimball Letterbox Challenge stamp, as
well as the associated burdens of the honor - to create another VLB in

After a hectic semester of teaching, I have finally found time to take
on this burden. (My advice to letterboxers - be prepared for
this burden if you plan to be the first to complete this Kimball Library

settled on an easier (for me) VLB to create. Anyone who
completes my challenge will win a stamp commemorating your
