Event information

Please join us on October 26-28, 2018 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of letterboxing in North America – Texas Style!

For those who aren’t familiar with the concept, this will not be your typical gathering. It won’t be a potluck at a park, or an overnighter in a campground. “Live and Breathe” is more like summer camp for letterboxers except you won’t be scheduled from one activity to the next; you decide what you’d like to do! It will be an extra-long weekend jam-packed full of letterboxing madness and mayhem. This is going to be another one of those events that you just have to experience to really understand!

Date and time: 12:00 PM Friday October 26 to 9:00 PM Sunday October 28, 2018

Location: McKinney Roughs Nature Park, 1884 State Highway 71West, Cedar Creek, TX
