Is that a Board or a Widget?

It is a part of Wassa's Random Daily Funnies.

We haven't officially released it yet. We haven't received any bug reports since we made it available two weeks ago, so we plan to release it soon.

Hello everybody, I'm new to all of this and have loved it all in the short time I've been at it. Since I'm becoming more and more active with finds and planting I thought I'd introduce myself and say Hi!! I'm TimmyBoy and I'm from the Central Ohio area. I look forward to finding, planting and getting to learn from all of you professionals. Safe travels and happy findings everybody!!

Hi and welcome! I see that there's a event not too far from you in a few weeks. It would be a great way to meet some other boxers and learn some new tips and tricks.

Hello TimmyBoy

I am also a relative newcomer of two years boxing. This is a great community of folks here, I’ve now made many actual friends through letterboxing and events. Welcome to the community, I look forward to seeing your work one day!

i was a test user for the new android clue tracker and it works pretty well, really nice to catch a clue if you lost or forgot paper when you left home

i liked to leave box radar running when i was making a long journey,, clue tracker doesnt do that well in that mode but you can always pull over and find boxes nearby

i like it and it works

Things change.
(LbNA and AQ being two of the changes.)
Not quite as secret as it was way back when boxing was done via calling cards and postcards.
Anyone here a member of letterboxing on dartmoor?
Care to share a few details of their inner sanctum?

I have a stamp in a box in Dartmoor, early 2000’s, my first carve. I never got the register number though.

Heading to Dartmoor in 2 weeks. Hope to snag a few boxes. I went to Crammere pool years ago so don’t think I’ll make it back there.

My new company is sending me to London May 7-10 for some training. Which I interpret to mean "we want you to take the train to Dartmoor".
I don't know if I can swing it, but I'd like to try to take the train down to Dartmoor either the weekend before or the weekend after the work stuff. I'll probably only have a day for it, but if you are still around at that time how awesome would it be to meet up!

If not, then somebody tell me where I should go (keep it clean, folks) and how I should get there. Never been to the UK before, so it'll all be fresh and new to me!

Work-sponsored letterboxing trips are awesome! My company’s sent me to Connecticut twice. This year the new store is in Rhode Island. Woo hoo!

I’m hosting an event in October and want to do some sort of night box scavenger hint - I just got back from an event where I talked with a couple people who had some very creative ideas - so now it’s your turn to sound off ! Tell me your creative ideas or ways to hide or find night boxes in general or at an event .
Thanks !

I've seen sets with fire tacks used to set up the trail and to note the location of the boxes.

I REALLY enjoyed LCABs set at SOHT the last time we were there.....She set out the boxes with small firefly lights to be looked for to find the boxes.

Funny, my company is sending me the week after that. Which I interpret to mean they want me clean up whatever Crazy hijinx Wassa let’s loose in England.

Unfortunately, that means I will definitely be too busy to make it out to Dartmoor on this trip.
