Wisconsin Letterboxes of Antiquity Homepage

This box was placed by Capt. Jim in November, 2002.  As there were only a few WI letterboxers at the time, most of us got to stamp in before it, its counterpart Boerner Botanical Gardens, and Attack Goose suddenly disappeared.  Speculation centered on the Wehr/Boerner staff, and has now been confirmed.  Capt. Jim reports that the 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 Wehr's Waldo is still alive and kicking - so take that Mr. Verhagen! :-P
