That's awesome... I would have had been able to plant a few more - but we had snow on the ground for most of the planting time... so if you do it again... maybe a different timeline so all areas can plant in better weather conditions :)

I'll put it on calendar but I'm not sure we will be able to go that far.

Hope we can make it.
Thanks for hosting!

Hi-
For those headed to Atlas Obscura in Doylestown, PA this Sunday just be aware that it is Tile Fest weekend at the Fonthill / Moravian Tile Works grounds. So it will be $ 6 per adult to hunt any older boxes there. http://www.buckscounty.org/government/MoravianPotteryTileworks/MoravianPotteryandTileWorks/events/tile-festival
We are planting the new Atlas Obscura at Chapman park :) See you Sunday!! Lotus

Fitbit Data No Longer Syncing
Board: Walking4Fun
May 17, 2019 6:01am
Thread Board
I'm sort of frustrated that my steps from Fitbit are no longer syncing to W4F. The last time they synced was on May 10th.

I've tried forcing it using "fb" in the steps field. And I've tried to again start from scratch by going to settings and beginning the Fitbit process all over. Nothing seems to be working.

I'm wondering if I need to delete programs and reopen them or if there is something else I can do to get my steps recorded on W4F other than manually recording them (which I can easily do but I did get spoiled).

Everything looks fine on W4F. Best I can figure.... you haven't actually synced your Fitbit for the past week. If Fitbit (the company, not the device) doesn't know about your steps, it can't tell W4F about them.

You can log into your Fitbit account and double-check that, but I'll bet that's the problem.

I'm not sure how you normally sync your Fitbit or what has changed for that not to happen automatically anymore, but once you get that working, it should all work fine again.

Once you do sync your Fitibit, it might take an hour or two for W4F to catch up with your week's worth of steps, but it'll catch up eventually!

I guess we're a bunch of outliers (2018: California 2) and just prefer to plant when we feel like it. I planted a series (4) earlier this month, and others in my area also planted.

Ahoy Girl! Retirement in the works. i'm sure your boxes are still there. They were very well done. E has done a great job of combing thru the state. i relied on him to do my maintenance. Thanx E! Alaska letterboxers cover the biggest state with the least amount of boxers.

Plant Date for Reserved Boxes
Board: Suggestion Box
May 17, 2019 6:14pm
Thread Board
I would like to suggest that the Plant Date for Reserved box names should be when the box is made active rather than the date it is created in AQ. I reserve my box names in advance of planting but when I plant it the date may show many months prior to when it actually is planted.

Maybe when clues get updated, the boxes can show in the New Letterbox thread (maybe starred or something noting the clues are new).

But if Eevil publishes a box with no clue and no listing, that would be pure Eevil.

Done!

That list is about new letterboxes, not new clues. People who want to know when a clue is changed can put a watch on the box.

I don't know what changed either but you were absolutely correct.

My device was keeping track of my steps, my app was not. Turns out I had to force that to sync with my device. All is good now.

It's good to have someone knowledgeable of all this electronic wizardry point me in the right direction when something goes awry.

Thanks!

The best way is definitely with a tour guide, especially if you're not from here.

Other note: Saying natives in Alaska refers to our indigenous people, Alaska Natives, a common mistake tourists and outsiders make. So if you want to say someone who lives in Alaska, you would say either "a local" or "Alaskan". :) Just a heads up. It was very confusing when someone asked me "Are you a native of Alaska?" the answer was "No." and they said "Where are you from?" and I said "Alaska." The conversation ended up being very confusing until I worked that out. LOL Have a good time!

Also, if you want to get together during the week, after work usually works for us. :)
