Dial-up modem.

I was planting boxes for my event this morning. Several people had arrived early and I was just a few minutes ahead of the crowd. I got the final box of a series planted, a bonus, and turned around to reach event central. I passed one person on the trail and then a pair of boxers just a few hundred feet away.

Not even 15 minutes later they come up to me, telling me how there was a matchbox car in the final box but no stamp!!

That one person must have been a cacher, seen the footprints and followed them off the trail, traded for the stamp, and cleared out in the 5-10 minutes between me placing it and the first finders!!

Then the only other bonus box in the 60+ stamps hidden went missing.
So that's 2 out of the 60+ stamps went missing all day, both in the first hour, and both bonus boxes.

I've bought an OttLite 2-in-1 LED Magnifier Floor Lamp some time ago. This has greatly helped my carving. We purchased it at JoAnn fabric. It's a bit pricey but if you can catch it on sale or find a coupon it helps. I have large hands it definitely helps for better detailing.

That cacher is on his computer right now trying to figure out why he can't find a listing for that geocache.

Somewhere, there's a pit with his name on it.

Why do people wear shamrocks on St. Patrick's Day?

Because real rocks are too heavy.

It just seems suspicious to me that with all the stamps hanging yest. it was ONLY the bonus boxes that were hacked. Perhaps someone doesn't like BBs??

Clue 3 = canopic jars.

Clue 2 correction. Hydrogen was the real clue. It was unintentionally mispelled. This is important to clarify as misspelled words can be an additional layer of clues. Thanks to foxfriend and jampersandj.

did anyone get the green check marks back? I still don't see them when I look at someone else's log book.
I REALLY liked knowing if I had the same boxes....
I REALLY liked the green check marks.
who knew a simple check could make me so happy. After a big event like the Pi day event, it's really easy to know if I forgot a box or if I didn't know the name of a stamp by looking at someone else's log book.

Has anyone heard of Blaze On? Before I recycle any stamps I'd like to know this is a legitimate letterboxer. I've never come across a letterboxer with zero finds and a couple of plants. It strikes me as odd.

Go to the find in your logbook. On the far right end of the line is an icon that I think is a remove find icon.

Did the cacher sign into the logbook? Perhaps you can contact them and explain the situation. A little education is a good thing in these times.

Yes, legitimate. Well, at least in the sense that ANY of us are "legitimate".
And I'm sure as heck not delving into the realm of parentage.
