I'm in. If I am too much of a carver to participate in this mystery project, then you're definitely out, Mrs. V!!

Wonderful! Do you think you will plant them soon? Or are you keeping them for your own use? Just wondering, I'm new at this too and took me a while to part with my artistic creations but now that I did I'm excited to share with future finders!

Wow, good going Ele! Looking forward to finding more of your boxes! ;-)

To my mind, the three ways of leaving notes are to three different audiences. The public online log is to others who may decide to hunt this box in the future. The private online comment is to the box planter and owner. And notes in the physical log...

Well said. I have to share one of my 'favorite' comments that I often find in a physical logbook - "logbook wet." I often wonder who the intended audience for this comment is, as anyone who subsequently finds the box will also recognize the amount of m...

I have a Dia De Los Muertos box, and I asked people to write messages about or to their lost loved ones. I need to go check the box and see if anyone ever did. :-)

And notes in the physical log book in the box are to the people who find the box after me. That may not be the original intent when letterboxing first started out, but it's the scheme that makes the most sense to me now I don't think there was any orig...

Since it seems to come up about once a month about "how to get that map of the states I've boxed in", I thought I would share one of the other ways I log my finds. Google Maps If I remember correctly, Kelsung has one of these. Anyone else? Squatchis

Love this! I will settle for just shading in the State, but mapping each and every box is really great use of technology. Thanks for sharing.
