Thanks.
Then definitely not it. Do you have any idea what it could be?

Sorry, I don’t. Good Luck with the series. Looks like some may be missing.

I didn't imagine that she would have used a store bought stamp; she did great carves.

Besides the practicality of being able to identify which boxes you've found, there is something very gratifying about seeing a check next to something you've accomplished. Does anyone else working on a daily todo list go back and add something to the list that was already completed just so you can check it off?

Absolutely, just this morning I had a "walk-around" list of thing to do.
As I did each item, it got a big ole check mark. Extra notes pertaining to the item were added in different color ink. (Just like green checks and notes somewhere else. Where could that be?)

I add things to my check off list and then leave it out for my daughter and husband to see. If I get the question what did you do today I point to it.

Absolutely!!! How else will I know how hard I have worked?! ;-) It is quite satisfying to have a bunch of cross outs on a list or green check marks on a letterbox list. It takes so little to make me happy !!

I'm next door in Meriden where there's a box behind EVERY tree and EVERY rock. Not really, but that's the running gag. Hubbard Park is a good one to get lots of boxes at. Honest, there's just a fun group of people at various stages of letterboxing here in CT and Wallingford has lots of festivals, restaurants, etc. Welcome.

Tentative plan is to meet about 2:00 pm on Friday at the main entrance to Sleeping Giant. From there we'll be checking on Toonces at the bottom of the Quarry, then up the head on the Blue Trail, checking on Eye of Canada, then to the Tower Trail and follow the Tower Trail to the Tower, checking on the Sky 2015 bonus and Sleeping Giant State Park. From there who knows, possibly following Blue to Violet to check on Tarka the Otter. After that, any route back will work.

There are other boxes along this route, so if anyone wants to join us and can remember what boxes are in these areas, please feel free to print out the clues and we can take a look.

If you can't get there by 2:00, just follow our route because depending on conditions around the box locations, we might be pretty slow and you can catch up.

I'm going to bring a handsaw and pruners in case some trees are in the way, which sounds likely. I'd recommend bringing tools if you've got them.

I’m not sure about my work schedule & I definitely have to be ready to sing at an evening service, so I don’t think I can make it... but if you could possibly check on my Sky 2015: Little Green Sprout, I’d be much obliged!

Will do! I did notice that box is listed as 'retired' rather than 'unavailable'. When I see 'retired' I think it's done forever and probably missing and wouldn't think to check it after the storm. I switched all my Giant boxes back to 'active' with a note at the top of the clues saying I don't know if the boxes are accessible after the big storm.

Unavailable boxes are automatically retired after a year. Were your boxes unavailable for more than a year?

Ahhh, that makes sense. I had edited my clues a couple months ago, so that must have prevented them from getting auto-retired.
