Happy new year Diane!  How grateful I am to have met you!  Here is where I placed sams Stone.  I carried it until I thought it spoke to me!  I want to say near Rubias on the Portuguese trail!  Not real sure at this point in time! It was such a beautiful spot. I just cried!   Hope you are doing well and I think of you and Deb very often! Peace…health…and tons of joy for our new year!  With a Grateful heart!   Linda Putz

Dear John,


4. A photo of the place where we ‘hid’the SamStone. We placed it at the core of the KIT campus at the Fridericiana statue蟚meters next to the spot where Heinrich Hertz first discovered electromagnetic waves (second photo).


…Looking forward to hearing from you and best from Karlsruhe,

Niklas & Robin


PS: The KIT offers a travel grant for 2018 with the possibility to apply until 01-14-2018. We don’t want to rush things, but it would probably make funding easily possible.

Found this in

    Anastasia State Park, Fl.

We were on the nature trail,
and found a tree with a small, deep hole. Peering into the hole, we
saw this stone. With my hands being the only ones that would fit into
the hole, I gingerly inserted my hand and entire arm to reach the
stone. Upon researching internet, we found out what we recovered. We
placed it back in the hole, for others to hopefully find.

Found a sam stone in a geocache in Las vegas
We found the sam stone in a geochache in a riverbed in a small city called Henderson in Las Vegas nevada, the riverbed had a nice trail going around the river bed and park surrounded by tons of big green trees. When walking the trail we heard the sounds of frogs and crickets. It was very peaceful. The Sam stone rock was in ammo can with a small white paper in a zip lock bag with directions of what to do with the stone if found . We traveled to Utah and Arizona thanksgiving day weekend and placed the Sam stone in a different geochache in another ammo can near the Arizona Utah Nevada border, with hopes he will travel out of state on another adventure. Have you heard of geocaching?

We visited Jerusalem Monday and went to the Wailing Wall. I placed a samstone there. It was quite an experience to be there. Thinking of all of you.

I placed a stone for Sam on October 8, 2017 at a historical inn in

Woodstock, VT. While waiting for lunch at the Red Rooster Restaurant,
I walked through the lobby of the inn and placed the stone on a table
set up for a chess game.
