Wisconsin Letterboxes of
This box was
placed by Capt. Jim in December, 2002. As there were only a
few WI letterboxers at the time, most of us got to stamp in before
it, its counterpart
Wehr Nature Center,
and Attack Goose suddenly
disappeared. Speculation centered on the Wehr/Boerner staff,
and has now been confirmed. Capt. Jim reports that
land manager for Wehr (Mark Verhagen) emailed him that our hobby is
not an acceptable activity and to remove the boxes as soon as
possible (paraphrased). Capt Jim did pull his two boxes
immediately, so they are preserved, but sadly retired.
Considering this report, Dragon is happy to report that
Waldo is still alive and kicking - so take that Mr. Verhagen!
