Mark & Sue Pepe hail from Kensington, CT USA.

After finding our initial box in June 2002, we have since found letterboxes in 18 states and placed them in 13 states; 4 countries: Aruba, Bermuda, The Netherlands, Great Britain; and on a cruise ship! Thanks for stopping by our website and we appreciate your continued support.

Calling All Bed & Boxers!

Most of the planning is out of the way for our First Ever Letterboxing Cruise!!! on June 22 to June 29 heading to Bermuda. With 37 excited boxers who have been given permission by the cruise line to hide boxes onboard, something tells me we'll be the craziest ship asea and maybe a floating Dartmoor!

Our thoughts now (of course!) turn to our next Pinecone Adventure - the Bed & Boxing event to be held in the quaint village of Jackson, NH the weekend of November 14 to 16. The photo, at right, is the Honeymoon Bridge, a local attraction.

The 3 inns participating are The Inn at Jackson and Whitney's Inn - both in the village of Jackson and Glen Oaks Inn, located nearby in Intervale. By the first week in July, we'll have a special webpage setup with descriptions and pricing for the 3 locations. Prices will include 2 nights stay and 2 full breakfasts. Additionally you will be charged for taxes and the Welcome Buffet.

The Welcome Buffet will be held that first evening, Friday, November 14 at The Whitney's Inn in their private White Birches room. The charge is $15 per person; $10 per child and must be reserved when you place your room order. You can choose any of the 3 inns where you will breakfast both mornings but the Friday night buffet will be held in Birches. Please tell your reservation taker the number of people for the buffet. Menu includes Chicken Divan, Vegetable Lasagna, Macaroni & Cheese with Lobster, vegetable, salad, bread & butter, cheese and fruit platters and non-alcoholic beverages. Alcoholic drinks may be purchased at your own expense.

Reservations will open early July and must be completed by August 1. A 50% deposit will be required at the time of reservation. Your buffet fee will be added to your room. Stay tuned for details on room accomodations, prices and other specifics.

Please sign up for the event if you are interested here. When the Bed & Boxing webpage is ready for you and reservations are open, I'll send an email to the group registered at the event page. Hope you can make this newest boxing adventure that has been in the planning for almost a year!

In the interim, all 3 inns have given us permission to hide boxes on their grounds. Our hope is that the boxing community will plant boxes for our group to find during the coming summer or fall months. If you decide to plant boxes on their grounds, just go to the front desk of any of the above-mentioned inns and explain what you are doing, then plant your box. We ask that you include the tag line "Planted for Bed & Boxing" in your clues and you publish your clues on LBNA and/or Atlas Quest Monday, November 10 - Thursday, November 13. This will allow attendees the ability to print out these new clues Friday before they depart for this exciting weekend.

Sue & I hope that you can join us. With the almost 70 people already signed up, there will not be an organized group to hunt for boxes on Saturday or Sunday. We encourage small groups of boxers to head out on their own. We can all enjoy each others company at the individual inns over breakfast, at Friday night's Welcome Buffet and a meal being planned for Saturday evening back at Birches private room. Come along with us, pack your boxing gear, some warm clothing and enjoy all this area has to offer during this special weekend!
