However, clues to finding some of the most highly-sought boxes are passed around by word of mouth. Click here for the Letterboxing of North America site.

What do you do when you find a letterbox you were looking for?
Once you locate a letterbox there will be a log book that you stamp your stamp in and a rubber stamp to stamp in your book.

Use your ink pad and stamp your stamp in their journal with the date you were there.

Then take their stamp in the letterbox and stamp it in your journal writing down the date and location that you found the letterbox. Please close the box back up and secure it back where you found it.

How many letterboxes could there be?
There are about 90,000 active letterboxes hidden just in North America.
