Avenue of dead souls
The Letterboxing is similar to the geocaching except it uses clues instead of GPS technology to reveal the location of the letterbox. Inside a letterbox is a rubber stamp and the idea is you take a rubber stamp and logbook of your own and then stamp your stamp in the letterbox logbook and stamp the letterbox stamp in your book, thus creating your own collection of stamps.

Letterbox hybrid geocache
This hybrid is just that, its part geocache part letterbox. You must solve the simple clues which you will find along the way to obtain the coordinates for the box. Inside you will find a logbook, ink pad, ink, rubber stamp – DO NOT TRADE THEM - and some standard items for trading. If you have a stamp of your own please stamp it in the logbook along with your log. If you do not have your own stamp, there is a black marker inside, you can design your own stamp image in the logbook – or just print your finger there.
In the letterboxing the stamps can be commercially made or hand made. Which to use is a personal and artistic choice, but the hand-made stamps are much more appreciated. In this letterbox hybrid you will find the hand-designed stamp, proffessional maded - thanks for geofriend C.Coudy - with an image appropriate to the location. - leaf from tree of avenue and sign of aristocratic genus that are owned Nachod castle.

When I created this letterbox I am was inspired from visit the first Czech letterbox Deer Moat Letterbox (GCNEGK). I created my letterbox with the agreement of owner Deer Moat - Thanks, Saman!
