At some recent point, you must have accidentally taken it off your favorites list. Simply click on the "Heart" icon with the "+" in it, at the bottom of a post, to add the board to your favorites.

That must have been it. I've made it a favorite now. I'll have to wait until someone posts to see if it worked.

I planted 2 and I have 5 more ready to go. Just don’t have a good park/area and probably won’t get a chance to plant soon ( I am on call all this month). But maybe by May. They are NC specific so won’t be planted anywhere else. So they will live here eventually :-)

Thank you for the explanation, MissMoon. I suspected that it might be something like that but did not know for sure.

So reading through everyone's responses, all I can say is "WOW!" I have planted 5 boxes. I have more stamps ready to be planted; I just have to find the right areas. I know I'll make the 10 by May, but 50??!! That's a but ambitious for me. Thanks for the challenge!

I have heard of snow friendly boxes but do not know what makes them snow friendly.

It means they can still be found even if there is deep snow on the ground. So instead of at the bottom of a tree on the ground, the box would perhaps be hanging from a branch on the tree. Or instead of behind a log on the ground the box would be up on a "wall" of boulders in a niche protected from direct snow that would bury it.

Or it means don't plant it up here in Alaska, plant it in Hawaii instead.

Perhaps GT should change it so that if you are in any of the Gulf states, "snow friendly" becomes "alligator friendly". Not that the boxes are near "friendly" alligators, but that they are far enough away from alligator habitats that you don't need a lookout.

I think you need to be in another state to be far enough away from alligator habitats!

I have hand written out clues for one box that I want to still go look for but was wondering if the boxes were pulled since the clues aren't online anymore (at least for the ones I have checked).

Some of us in CT have trouble just getting time to box in places with hundreds of ready to find items and pages of unused clues.

I haven’t had any breakthroughs in a while. I’ll pick them up again from time to time, but I still find myself running into the same dead-ends.

It was the eevilinc site that got lost... messing up the listings...

I have a bunch of ones that interested me that were a mix of broken and unbroken links... And I've offered them to people who indicated they were looking for the clues... Most people want to solve some, but providing clues is not the same as providing the answers... and in more than a few cases, clues is all I have.

There is one that I still think about from time to time. I thought I had it figured out but when I searched it was not there. It's never been found, no attempts. I know one of the NC boxes went missing before it was ever found (but was replaced). Maybe this one is also mia.

I'd like to ask Eevil if I was indeed at the right spot, but........

I've planted 14 permanent plants since Nov 1. They are all in Austin and parks to the west in the Central Texas Hill Country, which is currently ablaze with one of the best bluebonnet shows in the last decade. Stunning! There's lots of activity happening out here - hope folks can come out and take advantage of a whole bunch of new boxes in this area!

I will likely plant about 2 dozen more before May 1. I doubt I will get to 50, but that's OK... I'd rather have a patch than pathtag anyway! :)

Thanks to the organizers for setting up this challenge!

Which one was that...? The puzzles are often 'eevil' enough, but often the solutions only lead to more frustrations... and work... which sometimes make the puzzle look easy.

Are they all "snow friendly"?

I had to do that with some recent comments in another thread.
