Normally I don't weigh in on updates, change is change and all about a learning curve.
BUT this change sucks.
PLEASE bring back the Green Check Mark that indicates a shared find with another member!

I humbly beg profusely for this as well. When I go to an event with someone, I can look at their logbook to make sure I managed to log all the finds I know we got together. This has really kept me from missing boxes in the past. Logging at events can be so tough otherwise.

Of course you can get around this using advanced search. Type in a location, narrow it down to traditional boxes or event boxes or whatever you like, and then put your friend's trail name in the Finder box. You'll get a list of their finds complete with the little green check marks so you can see which ones you found and which ones you didn't.

Or you can do the same thing but also put your own trail name in the Hide Finder box. Then you'll get a list of what your friend found that you haven't logged as finds yet.

While not applicable to me PiggyJaunt, you also have a valid point.

For me the WTH moment came when I was trying to figure out what boxes either of us had already done.

That green check mark is a terrific easy at a glance indicator to use when deciding what boxes to find when boxing with a buddy so that neither of us is doing a repeat.

Not shooting the messenger but really?

There was nothing wrong with easy peasy...

Your explanation & help is appreciated.

But I still prefer easy peasy.

Unfortunately GT is in Jordan (yes, you read correctly) and will not be back for a while. I’m sure he will comment upon his return.

And why should one have to do all that when before the update you could just LOOK??? It seems to me that doing all that instead of just looking at the info is not an update. That's going backwards, more of a downgrade.

And yes BB I know he's in Jordan.

I wasn't really planning to. I already posted my thoughts on the subject--everyone hates whatever I change anyhow, so I'm doing what I want--an actual logbook.

Searches can be found on the search page.

Maybe I'll add some premium member "search perks" on the logbook when I finish the Jordan Trail.

[...] when I finish the Jordan Trail.

You know, after you finish the Jordan Trail you can come to Utah and hike the Jordan River Trail. You even can hike off-road all of the way from Utah Lake to Hinkley Drive in Ogden. You could do it in one day since it is fairly level, though not your typical hike.

You can even take another day and hike the trail around Ogden: Start at Cottonwood Drive by the Weber River, hike to the confluence with the Ogden River, the Bonneville Shoreline Trail to Beus Creek, and all of the way to Ogden Peak (9,579 feet or 2,920 m) and down the other side. Once in the mountains you can even camp. Again, not your typical hike, but there are many trails in our mountains.

Come to Utah, and take a hike!

Check drive bys

Oh. My. Goodness.
I looked at the clues for one of my drive-bys (the clues for which were written in a purposefully cryptic prose because of its urban location). Now, the clues are doubly impossible!!

I checked one of my own drive-bys.

My clues were turned to GREEK -- but when I tried to print that, it came out in English. I took a screen shot, to display the outcome, but I'm unable to attach it to this correspondence.

Very creative, Ryan.

I was disappointed at first, until I checked Letterboxing News. Clever. How does he do it? Each one I checked was in a different cypher.
But it is true. Some drive bys are just too darn easy. Easy can be good. Some mystery boxes are way too hard!

when i go to print a clue i use the single-column layout. only now it is not switching to single-column, stays on double.

Is this still happening? If so, what browser are you using?

I'm still having trouble reproducing the problem. What kind of device are you using and exactly what version of Chrome are you using? (I'm currently testing with version 73.0 and it seems to work fine.)

I'm not sure what to tell you. It's like you're describing my own system and I still can't recreate the problem that you're describing. You're sure you hit the "update page" button after changing to the single-column page layout?

Last week my friend, Mama Jane, passed away. She was mainly a geocacher but she had a few letterboxes. We hosted a hybrid event a few years ago where I taught cachers how to carve stamps. We also volunteered at an event in a city park teaching ppl about activities to do outside. It rained that day and only a handful of ppl showed up. We spent most of the time sharing stories about our boxing/caching adventures. I will miss her beautiful smile :) Here is a link to her obituary. Could someone please add the tombstone to her profile page? Thanks <3
