I saw this and thought it'd be a great idea! 10 may be a stretch by April, but I'll think about it! I have ideas of boxes to carve, but limited ideas of places to plant! Ack!

I was looking at that when SuperHedgeHoggie posted about it.

I'm tempted, but haven't really had the energy to carve or plant. Haven't planted or carved in well over a year. Heck, I have three or four stamps carved for your area since 2012, since before moving to North Carolina, but haven't ever gotten around to figuring out a place for them.
Although, it looks like Nic wants to go that way for his 40th in a couple of months to show me his individual tour of GR when he lived there in 2015/16. Don't know if there will be any letterboxing on that trip, but a week later will be my 10 year anniversary as a letterboxer.

Happy New Year. Hope the New Year and holidays treated everyone okay.

I'm still here and still logging on here. Maybe not with the same frequency as say four years ago or eight years ago, but still here and looking.

One of the reasons I have been a little more recently inactive is that my logbook, the one used at the Fall event, Popo's event, a NC event, and that event last winter disappeared. I bought a new one right before going to Texas for Live and Breathe. Nic and I cleaned out my car in the middle of November, and the logbook wasn't found. There were stamps in it that I hadn't gotten around to recording yet. It has crushed me.

Also, I've just have been still rather depressed. Meh.

Nic has been great. He's like the Felix to my Oscar. He cleans and cooks. Although, I am a bit of a germaphobe and he isn't. Nic is optimistic in some ways and has survived some things that others cannot. He has some health concerns and some other issues that are a bit of a new challenge for me in this past year. The past two weeks have been tough between the health issues and the other concerns.

Anyway, still here. Still planning on going to the upcoming winter event. Planning on going to Geek Fest in NC. Not sure if I will make it to the Sagatuck one. The plan is to take a longer trip to North Carolina as Nic has never been to the ocean and isn't sure if he can handle the long car ride.

Again, I am here, but just a little inactive over my missing logbook and depression.

We all struggle through different things. I believe that you will find that logbook and the fog that’s covering you right now will be lifted. I still want to make it over to you so we can go boxing!!!

Hugs to you!!

Not sure if that logbook will be found. It isn't in my car or my apartment. Thank you. Hope things are getting better for you. Would definitely like to go find some letterboxes with you.

For those not on the Great Lakes Facebook Group, my logbook was found. I left it at the Fall Michigan event. Mrs. Doglvrs posted some pictures of the missing logbook on the group last weekend and Dawnkey tagged me. It came in the mail yesterday. Thanks so much!

One of the pictures she posted was a glued image of a stamp found last February in North Carolina. I remembered that I had forgotten my logbook at a cemetery and had to return after getting that stamp to retrieve my logbook. Poor logbook. I kept leaving it behind last year.

Yeah! I'm glad you got it back! You need to tie one of those extendable key chain doohickeys to it and attach it to you so you can't leave it behind.

You know, I remembered your post a few weeks ago as I saw it on the group. So that was one of the first thoughts to mind was that you were correct. =)

When heading to an event, if I have time, I will sometimes look at the traditional plants by the boxers headed to the event to see if any are PLANET EARTH or UNITED STATES locations on their letterboxes. When I look at the clue, often they are bonus boxes or clues that are specific to another event. But sometimes I've unearthed a letterbox that will be hidden somewhere at the event.

I'm headed to the LL Bean event this weekend and cannot possibly do this with all the letterboxers attending, but it's a bit of fun on a cold night.

That's a good idea... maybe just search the boxers from that area?

I think that's definitely a good idea. But I happened to find a couple of Planet Earth boxes by a couple of different letterboxers who are traveling to the event and the boxes travel with the boxers. The clues gave a description of what to look for, so I'm going to be on the lookout for them. Who knows? I may or may not have time.

Last summer when I traveled to Ohio, I found a couple of additional boxes because of sneaky clue listings. Loved it when they were there!

Oh...my...goodness! Just when I thought I had planned all the letterboxes that I could get at this event outside of the actual boxes planted FOR the event, you had to introduce me to this idea!!! What to do, what to do....I only have two days to go through all 200+ attendees to find their hidden secrets.

Thanks....I think.

How do I list this kind of stamp. I have a really cool one I’ve been taking with me as a PT but it’s too time-consuming sometimes. Especially at certain events depending on how busy they are to carry it around and give it to people. If I could just plant it when I get there and pick it up before I leave I think more people could get it but I’m not sure how to list it.

I've seen people listing traditional stamps for events with the location of the event in the listing. Then the clue says, "Clues to be posted at event." Then when you get to the event, you could hide the box, write the clues, and post them on a bulletin board or whatever in the main event area.

I think that's what you are hoping to do?

I do what Angel Winks just said. There's a couple different ways to do it, depending on how you want to plant it... if it has clues or not.

You can either make it a traveling event box and call it a "hidden in plain sight" or "table top box", and just add a new event each time you move it. For these, you wouldn't have clues. Just leave it in the gathering room either out in the open or 'hidden in plain sight'.

Or, you can make it a temporary traditional box with Word of Mouth clues. For this, you can change the physical location of the box each time so it will show up in searches for that area. Then in the clues, just type available at whatever event and list the clues or state WOM clues available then. After the event, change status to unavailable.

OMG! You guys are CRAZY! Once I start listing boxes tomorrow and your printer bursts into flames - you'll stop printing :)

There over 200 just the night of the event - you'll get PLENTY of ink :)
