Can I quote you on that?

So frequently there is a box quoting something someone else has said so that it can referred to in the response ... How does one do that?? I haven't managed to figure it out.

I have no idea.

(use < quote > < /quote > tags before and after the message, without the extra spaces.)

Wait until you figure out how to post a message upside-down!

This has happened to me. There is some gang activity in my hometown and a body turned up in a park I have a box planted in, not in the same area though...so don’t be pointing no fingers.

I don't wrap or pouch in felt, but I often use a stamp-sized piece as a blotter page in between the stamp & logbook to absorb excess ink and keep the logbook & baggie clean. I think the pouches are cute, though.

You must have missed the :::::gasp::::: big "update". All we have to do now is put two double curly brackets at each end.

To quote a part of this message, use the double curly brackets

I think that was part of the "update". It's hard to keep up.

Oh. And two asterisks make it bold now. see. lol

Shortest lived letterbox ever!

I was planting boxes for my event this morning. Several people had arrived early and I was just a few minutes ahead of the crowd. I got the final box of a series planted, a bonus, and turned around to reach event central. I passed one person on the trail and then a pair of boxers just a few hundred feet away.

Not even 15 minutes later they come up to me, telling me how there was a matchbox car in the final box but no stamp!!

That one person must have been a cacher, seen the footprints and followed them off the trail, traded for the stamp, and cleared out in the 5-10 minutes between me placing it and the first finders!!

Then the only other bonus box in the 60+ stamps hidden went missing.
So that's 2 out of the 60+ stamps went missing all day, both in the first hour, and both bonus boxes.

That cacher is on his computer right now trying to figure out why he can't find a listing for that geocache.

Somewhere, there's a pit with his name on it.

The geocacher looked like a regular ol' hiker, not like the stamp thief that he turned out to be!

It just seems suspicious to me that with all the stamps hanging yest. it was ONLY the bonus boxes that were hacked. Perhaps someone doesn't like BBs??

Did the cacher sign into the logbook? Perhaps you can contact them and explain the situation. A little education is a good thing in these times.

Unfortunately, there wasn't a logbook, so we couldn't catch him that way!

How's about having RIClimber enter the bonus box as a geocache on the geocaching site and see if regular old hiker records a find on the internet.?

Because it's only 350 feet from another geocache. They need to be 528 feet apart.

And no, none of the nearby caches have been logged. Last finder was January 6th.

Hmmm. Maybe he just hasn't had time to sign in yet. Is the nearby geocache one of your own---If it is you could unlist it for a while so that you could then list the bonus box as bait.
