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
Waldo is still alive and kicking - so take that Mr. Verhagen!
