Cyclonic had a box a few miles from my house on a really popular bike trail. It was just a single box but on this trail, about a mile west of the box, a man on a bicycle was being robbed by three teens and he shot one robber dead and injured another. The bicyclist had a license to carry and was exonerated because it was ruled self defense.

Then, a few months later, a little east of the box, somebody dumped a body that had been murdered elsewhere. Fortunately, there has been no crime on the trail since then and it is just as popular as it was before the crimes.

So, so sorry to hear. We lost a kitten not too long ago, unexpectedly, to some malady. I know how heartbreaking it can be.

I’m glad you were able to retrieve the stamp - it’s nice to have that memory.

Hopefully this is a one-off! It seems like a really nice park and when I planted, it was full of people with their kids and/or pets.
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.)

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

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!
