Make that 3 correct and that was an obscure clue 8nless you were already on the correct track. Shifting gears slightly with clue 5. Remember ALL the clues must fit.

Well, I spoke too soon. WavesandWaterfalls was able to get over there today and replace the stamp herself. Hurrah, she's on the mend.

Based on those assumptions do you have any problem with a local moving the box off NPS property and communicating with you on clue changes?

Why? Where is there an indication that LBs are not allowed? As has been pointed out (WITH A LINK), NPS no longer explicitly prohibits them, and it is up to each park to make their own determination. Why remove someone else's box based on "well, maybe someone somewhere has an unwritten and unposted prohibition for this specific park, based on word of mouth"? How does it "look bad" or generate "ill-will", if the rules aren't posted and published?

You have been made aware of the issue by the local planter.

And therein lies the conundrum.

The local boxer is "certain" of this policy prohibiting letterboxes yet there is not "official" mention of the policy on any park related listing of policies related to the prohibition of which they speak.

To me, if it isn't in verifiable format, it isn't actually a policy.

Not the point i'm making Wassa. It was an attempt at resolving with no ill will. Should know better than to attempt resolution on the message board. Suggestion is for local boxer and planter to discuss with an amicable resolution. Apparently wiser privately at this point. I personally welcome plants to our scenic state. But would suggest avoiding the NPS in these parts.

Sorry for the delay on the box of the month. The person who sends it to me finally picked it up this morning and is getting it out to me tomorrow which means it probably won’t be here until Tuesday. Again, sorry for the delay. I will try to keep it as long as possible before sending it on to Connecticut.

I was happy to. I was able to do the November one for her, and would have done December if she'd needed. Fortunately she's on the mend, and didn't need it. I'm sure that, had the situation been reversed, she would have done the same for me. It's the great thing about pretty much all the letterboxers I've met, that sense of community.

I was bored and thought it might be fun to read board posts of days gone by. But clicking on the numbers (20) at the bottom page, I was only able to go back to Nov 6, 2017. I even tried manually inserting a higher number in the url bar to no avail.

Is there an archive of forum posts somewhere that’s easy to access (excepting the Wayback machine)?

It took a little digging, but here is the New River Gorge's guidelines for geocaches. I would assume that they would like letterboxes to be handled in the same way.

I hope this helps.

Thank you, dancing pecan. We had followed a link on the site for GPS based activities but it was a dead link that led to a 404 error page. Good detective work!

We will contact the park superintendent and notify him or her that we placed a box there without knowledge of this rule and determine with the superintendent how to proceed.

Thanks again!

If your cards were large enough you could do exactly the same thing.

Did you notice the size of the ink pad though?

I couldn't get into older post on a local board until I searched all the boards by keywords...then I could see really really old post from all the boards, but I'm not sure if that's how its supposed to work.

But clicking on the numbers (20) at the bottom page, I was only able to go back to Nov 6, 2017.

I'm not actually sure which page you're referring to, but I suspect you're looking at a list of "recent" messages rather than "all" messages. It's an important distinction! =)

When you're reading a board, though, if you click the "First" button, it takes you to the first message of the board.

If you want to poke around messages older than a year but not necessarily the very first messages on a board, however, I'd recommend the search boards option. You can specify the year you'd like to search from 2004 to the present. (Message boards began in 2004.) You could explore specific themes across all years as well.

It's also possible to look at the AQ Stats page which shows how many messages were posted each month since the feature was introduced. If you click on one of the months, it'll take you to the messages starting from that month.

Reserved boxes never get deleted. Maybe you just mis-remembered listing them after so much time, though? It wouldn't be the first time someone thought they listed a box but then it turned out they didn't! Or started listing a box but forgot to click "save" at the end.

This is why I always go and do a search for my new listings to be sure they are showing up in the right location, etc.

The guesses really fell off with the last clue. I'm sorry these clues have been so challenging. It amazes me how creative and resourceful y'all can get. Don't quit now no matter how hopeless it seems. Follow me to the end of the clue thread.
