Visit Instructions:

Please include the following with your submission of a visit:

  1. Photograph of the passport stamp. Over time, passport stamps change, some are dated, and let’s face it, this is the purpose of the waymark.
  2. Area photograph of location. Try to make it from a new angle to show something new. Pictures can include interaction, as that is encouraged, but should be done so with the thought of inspiring further visitation of the area. No GPSr Pictures, unless there is something significant to show about the coordinates.
  3. Short narrative. Tell of your visit, share something new, add new visiting hours or anything that would be nice to know when visiting the location.

Finally, please add a visit if you go to the area and find the passport stamp is missing. Please add details, such as, they expect a new passport stamp and when, or the like. If the passport stamp has moved, please log a visit, and waymark the new location. (Old locations will not be archived. You never know when they might move the passport stamp back to the original waymark. This is where the visits come in handy.)

Please do not add a visit if you go to the location and the passport stamp is inaccessible because the passport stamp has moved to another location or where it is housed is closed. This category is about the passport stamp. You may be able to post a log about a lighthouse and not go inside, but you can not log a passport stamp without gaining the passport stamp.
