just got back from seeing the movie "The Bucket List" - highly recommend it)


The Bucket List isn't playing in Salt Lake yet; but, I'm planning on seeing it in the new year! Thanks for recommending it, kiltphan

I'm also glad I got a visit from Rino Beetle. It was a real treat, and a work of art by Gadabout.

I'm looking forward to PLBing in 2008. This has been a fun, new experience for me.

Thanks to all on AQ who have made me feel so welcome. Enjoy the new year!

Okay....now you're really testing my memory, Rte 66! =)

I clearly remember choosing which kindergarden class to go to based on watching Lucy's Toyshop---but that was when I was still living in Michigan.

I'm pretty sure I came home to watch CK after school after we moved to Deleware, Ohio around 1968????

I completely forgot about seeing Mr. Tree at the downtown Lazarus!!!!!!!! Thanks for that memory!!

Remember Lucy looking through her giant "looking glass" for "all the boys and girls who had birthdays?

And something about a bus.......

I do also recall Bozo the clown too!

I love the new Wassa-wallpaper in here with BULLWINKLE!!!!!!!!!!!!! *LOVE THAT*!!!

It is sad that you had to move your letterbox since you were there first, but I think you made a wise decision. In my experience, geocachers are kind of rude. They are out for the find and the "treasure" they can come away with. I have heard stories of geocachers coming across letterboxes in their quest to find a geocache and have traded out the stamp. One person even said that a geocacher left a note in her box saying they new the stamp was not supposed to be traded but it was so great they were taking it anyway. Now, not all geocachers are rude, but they are the ones that give the hobby a "bad taste in our mouths." I went to a popular mountain peak in my state where there were 5 letterboxes. Almost everyone of them had had geocache activity. There was even a stamp missing in one -- I have no idea if it had been traded out by a geocacher or not, but it is very likely. They signed into the logbooks commenting they were looking for geocaches but couldn't find them and had come across the lbs instead.

The hobbies are going to overlap, because both groups are looking for neat places to deposit their boxes. I just wish more geocachers were more considerate! I placed a letterbox in a park with a geocache. I knew where the geocache was so I hid it in another area. A couple of geocachers have found it and written in the logbook, but so far my stamp has been okay. I make sure to put a bright yellow sticker on each box saying "Official Letterbox" and inside explaining letterboxing (business card - size notes downloadable from AQ) and that the stamp stays with the box.

But people are going to do what they want regardless of what hobby they are in. Geocaching is just like letterboxing in that it is a "non-organized" hobby and people kind of on their own. Some people are very responsible and respectful, others aren't -- in both groups. You just kind of have to evaluate each situation and act on the best interest of your box.

I released a HH this summer and in it I said that the taker was supposed to drop me a postcard with their sig stamp on it (the logbook is teeny-tiny, so most people won't be able to stamp in) I checked on it this fall and it had been moved from one box in a state park to another, and from that box it had been taken, but I have yet to receive any news about it. I thought that people weren't supposed to take HH if they weren't willing to fulfill the requirements placed on it? I know there are those in the hobby that don't list any finds at all, but I think most do like to list them. I'm just very disappointed because I wanted to "track" my hitchhiker and see where all it was going.

Quote I made some LTCs using my PT stamp. I figured I would award those who solved my PT with this card. So could it be both a PT find and a LTC find all in one?


I'm not too familiar with LTCs but I would say yes if you aren't planning on mailing them. I think that is the only difference in the two types. If mailing an LTC is what distinguishes them from PTs and you start mailing PTs what do we need LTCs for? Just make them all PTs.

Thanks for the early birthday wishes everyone! I am trying to put on a brave face . . . :D

I remember Bozo the Clown. Wasn't he out of Chicago? There was also another clown show . . . this might be too late for you guys . . . he was filmed out of Arizona. I met him when I was about 7. My uncle took me and my brother to the studio, and Billy actually got called down to do something (I can't remember what now). I can't for the life of me remember this other clown's name!
