Drop Spots: Places to hide things for exchanging with others
« on: November 25, 2006, 08:15:57 PM »
Here's a really cool idea for you to check out if you have the need or interest...

A dropspot is a kind of alternative mailbox. It’s a hiding place in a public space, where people can leave things for exchange. Anything. It’s a wierd and wonderful way to add personal character to the streets that we live in. Stash something fun and see what you get back.

To find a Drop Spot in your neighborhood, visit the Drop Spots map. Select a Drop Spot map marker near you, make note of its location and visual description and head out the door to find it! Once you locate the spot and discover your mystery gift, make sure to leave one in its place to keep the exchange going. For gift tips and ideas visit the FAQ page...

This sounds like fun!

But at the same time it also reminds me of something else...the fact that criminals do this all the time in my area.  :(

I wouldn't want to be arrested for doing this and getting mixed up in the wrong secret hiding place....picking up the wrong 'present'.

Sounds a bit like geocaching... without the treasure hunt aspect
