That’s so sad. All the good boxes go missing. Need to figure out a way to ensure the longevity of these classics.

Oh no. I had this one on my list to get in 2019. How do you know that it's gone?

Right back at you, 4Eyes! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family and to all Michigan letterboxers! Looking forward to seeing you Saturday as we do some Winter Fest planning. Everyone, have you had a chance to sign up for Winter Fest 2019: Favorite...

I'll chime in with Thanksgiving blessings from the west side of our wonderful state! Enjoy and cherish all of it, letterbox friends.

I cannot find any mention of the mapsurfer box in either AQ or LbNA. Is it a premium member's only box? The last couple of times I went to Mackinac Islands have been after Labor Day. In October, most shops and hotels were closed and it was cold. In Se...

I believe SITE Sleuths knew the exact location and didn't find it.

I looked for it on a trip in 2009 and didn’t find it either.

Thank you so much for helping get the word out, Angel Winks! We are now up to 151 boxes - 49 more needed to reach our goal! TeachJR

Dawnkey and I were talking about the tools and tricks of letterboxing and using the Atlas Quest site. We thought it would be interesting to open up a discussion about what we've found helpful and hope that some of our Michigan friends might both learn...

Thanks for getting the ball rolling, Angel Winks. I'm also a huge fan of the custom address feature. We might want to mention at this point that custom addresses are a perk of an AQ premium membership. There are many perks and you can find them here i...

I definitely do. And given your examples, I will often customize the Crown Hill Cemetery address to the 32nd Street address (Old Gates entrance). It’s the closest to my sweet daddy’s resting place. If anyone comes without a map, it is easily available...

I didn't know that. Thanks.

This is a great conversation to have. I'm sure there are many helps on here that I don't know how to use.
by Angel WinksProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: State: Michigan
Thanks, Topcollector. That's what Dawnkey and I, and others, hopefully, have in mind. We will try to keep the conversation going over the winter months when there is less letterboxing to do. And, we hope, anyone will feel free to jump into the convers...

I use custom addresses constantly as well. But I didn't know I could add the name of the address i.e., "Jo's Pool Hall" as well as the street address. Can't wait to try this out.
by BBStackerProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: State: Michigan
Wow! Didn't know this was available to us. Just added an event under the People tab just as you described. That's pretty cool, and easier to see my current sign ups. Thanks!
by Angel WinksProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: State: Michigan
BBStacker, The way I have found that works best is to first STORE the custom address. Once that is in, then I edit the custom address with the pencil icon. I add the name of the park or cemetery or pool hall :) or whatever and save it again. It should...

... Not a Michiganer here but I do have a few AQ tricks up my sleeve also. For instance, in order to see my event sign ups, I just created a search for them and then saved it, calling it "My Upcoming Events". New ones are added in date order and as...

... I have been doing this for years and loving it. It is amazing how many people are not aware of it. But I do take it a step further. There are areas that I box in regularly such as Florida, eastern PA, Delaware and Maryland, so I have searches se...

Janila, Welcome to our AQ conversation! I'm interested in learning more about how you do this. How do you actually create the search for them? I've saved several searches I've done by states, but not events. Do you do this under Advanced Search? Thanks!
by Angel WinksProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: State: Michigan
Janila, you are a letterboxer after my own heart :). I do the same thing. My husband and I are often dreaming about the next trip we are going to take, so I begin customizing addresses already at that time. I've found many boxes I wouldn't have found i...

Board: State: Michigan
... Yes. Then on the Search Type in the upper right, choose Events (listed under Miscellaneous). Then there's a check box for events you're signed up for.
by JanilaProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: State: Michigan
... Yes, Advanced Search, change the search type to Events, check off "Include only events that I'm signed up for" and "Include only upcoming events". Set Sort Order to Start Date. Voila! Did I mention that I LOVE saving searches? :-)

We do the same, I have alerts set up for Michigan to send an email. The other locations I track, Rhode Island, Maryland, Grand Haven, MI I have set up as a widget on my menu!

We use the custom address feature regularly. We then change the address at the top of the page, that way when we do a search of the area again, the boxes show up.

Fun! I'm sure there's a lot of things! I like the notes feature, particularly for personal travelers, but it's helpful for other things like mystery boxes. Once I solve the PT clue, I add a note. When I print the list of PTs prior to the event, the...
