I saw a post somewhere mentioning visiting lighthouses and getting a USLHS? lighthouse passport stamped. This sounds like a great thing documenting one's lighthouse visits that way.
I need to know more. How do I get one of these? Which lighthouses have stamps?
Help!
Tim

I did a search on "passport" in the forums and found a thread with all the details. Guess I should have done that first. Thanks anyway.

Tim,

Also check this link at the Chesapeake Chapter of he US Lighthouse Society-

http://www.cheslights.org/uslhs.htm

It will give you more info on the passport and a listing of who participates. I carry my passport in my camera bag to be sure I always have it when lighthousing. Even if a light is not on the list I ask if they have a stamp - you'd be surprised at how many do. I have also pasted in the stickers some lights give you when you visit.

I really enjoy the passport, and it has opened doors for me - last year I got to climb the tower at Jupiter with one of the docents on a day it wan't going tobe opened because we started a conversation on lighthouses when I presented the passport. He figured I was a true lighthouse wacko if I always carried my LH passport! Helped that he also had one and wanted to see where I had been!

One suggestion - I am thinking about also carrying my own stamp pad - too many of the stamps are less than optimal because of a dried out/under inked stamp pad.

Hey Tim - I'm not sure if you should get credit for 2 posts when you ask and answer your own questions in separate posts.

LOL

Guess I should have gotten the passport before I started "lighthousing"! At least I have my photo album to document my trips.

I oredered the passport just before I took a trip to CT, RI and MA. They send you a list of the "Official" LH's that have stamps and where to get them. This even covers some that are not regularly open. You are directed to the local Coast Guard in some places. They are very liberal- they accept unofficial stamps, signatures and even small pictires pasted in the book. When you fill it the send you a patch and return your passport. I managed to see 31 LH's on my trip, but I've have not pasted my pictures in yet. I got several stamps and signatures, but most were not on the list or open to the public. Dennis
