... ... Think, carving when the dishes have piled up to the ceiling. You finally stop to do the dishes, and suddenly you're inspired to do a still life carving of said dish pile. You go carve it, and hours later return to tackle those dishes. You turn...

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. :-)

... I don't think there was any original intent on these matters cuz that implies an original agent, and I don't think there was such. I think it was more evolutionary. That said, it dismays me when I see an online comment like "the bonus box was a n...

... What was once considered the State Of The Art lgbk for this hobby had its definite advantages. One of which was being able to separate the thicker index card pages of even the most waterlogged lgbk. However, over half of its pages may be illegible...

... I'm not convinced this is a dye vs. pigment thing. There are dye inks that are waterproof, and there are dye inks that are "washable". And the pigment ink that I use, Brilliance, has not proven to be all that waterproof; it tends to blur when wet.

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

That's gorgeous. How'd you do that?
by SquatchisProfileContactLogbookNote

If you have a Google account you can go to Google maps. Under one of the menus (I believe it's under/by the search bar) will be a "my maps" section. Then you can make your maps create unique layers, pins, etc. Also there are useful mapping tools...

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.
