Mid Missouri Letterboxers

Speaking of Re-hideation....
One of the Asian ponds at Shelter Gardens has a stone pagoda in it, and while I was there this past Monday, I noticed what looked like a Ziploc bag stuffed inside the pagoda. As I got closer, I was pretty sure it was a letterbox, and I was excited but also concerned about the openness of the hiding place. Imagine my surprise when I pulled it out and discovered it was the letterbox I planted in another part of the Gardens some time ago! I brought it home to do some repair work and figure out how it got transplanted. The last few entries in the logbook are hand-written and not signed...perhaps someone unfamiliar with LBing discovered it and misinterpreted my instructions to "re-hide it well" to mean hiding it somewhere else. It was fortunate that I found it in the pagoda before it went missing...and I've changed my instructions to read "please place the box back in its hiding place." :)
