Junctions - Junctions of trails to choose from when following clues. Do I go left or right? Did the clue writer know their left from their right? Do I know my left from my right? And, which way is north?

Planters with new Plants all around me. Been a long time since there were active boxers in my area, years ago it was a hotbed. And now, well, not even a single PAL Day plant in all of Washington.

Quality. Quality plants that don’t disappear. I’m talking about my own boxes. I have several I need to recarve & replant. I feel like I’ve learned a lot over my almost year of boxing. Hoping to have my boxes live in the wild for a long time.

I can’t find a board for cruise ships. Is there a place to check with other boxers if we are on a ship together. All those thousands of people must have a boxer or two aboard. I’m looking for a way to connect. Thanks

Hunger Game Game ideas

So, as I have mentioned before I do a lot of "fun" activities at work to kinda keep things festive. Well, I was asked to set up a Hunger Game game, and I am very pleased to how much people are liking it. I was very nervous to do it, especially since I never really watched the movies or read the books. But my co-workers seem to really like it.

Anyhooo..... my dilemma and hence need for suggestions or ideas. Okay, so, every district started out with a number of Food and a weapon. The "better" the district, the higher the food and the better the weapon. I assigned each weapon a Ranking so when they "faced off", the volunteer with the higher ranking weapon would always win. And yes, I made it a rule that once you kill off another district you get their food and their weapon, which you can combine to have a much higher ranking weapon(s).

Here's my dilemma..... how do I resolve a "face-off" if the two volunteers have the same weapon ranking???? Say for example, they both have a Crossbow which is a ranking of 10? How do I decide who wins????? I have been avoiding Voting games to avoid hurting people's feeling. So.... suggestions, ideas, anything??? Please!

TIA

ASL instructor asked what I did last weekend, so I told him.
Letterboxing.
Had him pull up AQ.

You'll learn all about nipple licking among the royals.

Do you suppose they still do it?

Hello All!
My name is Bex and I'm an indie filmmaker from the UK. I'm currently working on a short film called ‘BOX (as mentioned in this thread).
'BOX tells the story of two mismatched letterboxers on a quest across Dartmoor to uncover the secret of 'The Elusive Medusa'.
I lived on Dartmoor in a van for a year and this is where I first came across letterboxing. Since my first encounter, I became fascinated and my curiosity lead me on a journey to create ‘BOX.
The script is written, and a short teaser trailer has been made to promote our movie and help raise money to make ‘BOX happen. The 'BOX team have decided to think outside the 'box' and start by crowdfunding independently. This means we cut out the middle man and 100% of the money raised goes towards making the movie.
Atlas Quest have been kind enough to let me post on their page as they thought you guys would be interested in the movie. Wassamatta_u has also already pledged to the cause which is fantastic!
We are looking to raise a minimum of £5000 in the next few months to raise cash to hire equipment, crew, and actors, and also to ensure the shoot on Dartmoor goes as smoothly as possible.
More information about the project, including the crowdfunding teaser, is on the 'BOX website.
https://www.boxshortfilm.co.uk/
You can also make a donation, pick up some 'BOX merch (featuring 'The Elusive Medus') or invest in a 'BOX package on the website too.
Any support you can give is greatly appreciated.
You can also follow BOX SHORT FILM on Facebook to keep up to date with our progress.
Like, share and help spread the word. Together we can make 'BOX happen!
Wishing you all the best Atlas Questers!

Bex :) X
