i'm 24 and went with my husband to see it an i loved it. i can't imagine taking kids to see it, most would probably get bored. but i thought it was beautiful to look at, and i loved the story. i thought it really captured childhood, and how scary and amazing and frustrating it could be.

Actually, I suspect the idea of a logbookless letterbox could become reasonably popular

I couldn't DISagree more. I would have far less knowledge of who found my plants without the logbooks, because most finders don't post their finds online. I'll give you an example:

Yesterday I checked on a box I replaced just four months ago. According to the logbook, since that time it was visited on 17 separate dates, sometimes by groups of 3 or 4 boxers. Out of over 30 different boxers who've stamped into the logbook, 1 logged a find on AQ, 2 logged a find on LbNA, and 3 others logged a find on both. Of those six people, only two actually left a comment

In other words, 80 percent of the people who stamped that logbook did not log their find online. This is a little extreme. I'd say on average it's more like 50/50. But even then, that's significant enough that I highly doubt an online-only logbook would be viable.

The primary purpose of a logbook I think was to prove to others you had been there

No. The point of a hand-carved stamp is that if you have the stamp image it proves you'd been there. The point of the logbook is to leave a record for future boxers and the planter of your adventure. One is something you take with you, the other is something you leave behind.

You may need to ask yourself how you expect boxers to find your plant. If you plan to use the grave as the starting point to the clues, and you can't find it, how do you expect others to find it?

Obviously, once you've found the grave and planted, perhaps you plan to give directions to the grave in the clues, which is fine, so nevermind.

I've only found a few boxes in cemeteries, but they were some of my favorites.

went to our region's start at midnight party, and there was a really horribly bad musician there who thought he could sing and play guitar. He couldn't even find the tune to gilligan's island. seriously, he tried. even though he had music and words in front of him, he still couldn't find the tune. sheesh! I turned on my mp3 player and cranked it up and tried to ignore the man wailing in the corner. would you sing songs in public that you didn't know all the correct words to? well, he did. or tried to. I'm not sure I'd wall what he was doing singing though.

but as a result of hyper focusing in on my manuscript to block him out, I finished 1707 words in an hour and a half, between midnight and 1:30. a whole day's quota, finished! woohoo!

I'm off to bed, I'll likely write more when I get up. Chapter two is waiting for me.

If you search for a LB and come up empty. Then you click on the profile of the planter and they haven't been on the site in a while. So your chances of getting any clarification help are slim. Can you then ask the last letterboxer that found that LB for help?? Sometimes someone else might know where you went wrong since land marks change or sometimes clues are hard to follow. I was just wondering, or is that considered a no no or something.

I don't think she mentioned the name of the Park here she just said Dog Walk. But I think the Cats are safe.
But I know your concerns. We'll be careful next time we post.

Maybe some sort of sculptural wall hanging thingy.

That sounds interesting, but a much larger item than I would have thought you would go for with those cat beads, ha ha. Sounds like a project that would take a long, long time. Go for it!
Would love to see what a cat bead looks like, is it furry, after all, or so tightly wound/tufted that it is slick?

Another was a few months ago about how a clue was coded.

You emailed the last finder to ask about solving a mystery box? I've had people do that to me. I won't help them to solve someone else's mystery. They don't usually like that, but it's not my mystery to give away.

No, I don't know about the Fiskar's corner punch, but I bought the Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper off internet a couple months's still not being sold in local stores, but it is FABULOUS! It has 2 corner sizes, the 1/4 and the 1/2. Both work fine with LTCs, and you can "Chomp" several cards at once. It's one of my favorite purchases since I started in this hobby...

This sounds like a great idea and challenge. I wouldn't be concerned about whether it's "fair" for all boxers or not. Not all plants are for all boxers. Letterboxers can pick what's right for them, and ignore the ones that aren't. I love seeing new ideas for planting. Go for it!

I don't know what we're going to do if we're out to eat in a group and both of us are there.... THAT could get interesting.
Of course, we could be twins... good and evil..... Everyone would SURELY know which one is WITCH... er... I mean... WHICH.

Atlas Quest: International Letterboxing
Over three years ago, we moved to a very rural town, and to the outskirts of that town at best. We've had four Halloweens here. Year 1, we stayed here to trick-or-treat and it was awful. Because we're in the sticks, our side streets have ZERO street lights. Hardly any houses had their lights on and we did terribly, so I hopped into the car and went to our old neighborhood 30 minutes away to finish off the night.

Last year and the year before, we skipped our town alltogether and headed to our old city again.

This year, I decided to stay home since Halloween fell on a Saturday. I figured we'd get way more people. We decorated, carved pumpkins and played spooky music out of the open front windows. The kids went with my husband while I stayed home. I think we got a total of 5 separate door knocks, with maybe a total of 15 kids.

I'm taking the candy to work tomorrow. Ugh!
