Hi everyone- Just a shout out to those who know me as Tumble-eena. My trailname has changed to Cake Guru. I am fairly new to AQ but I have emailed individuals I have been in contact with while participating in various trackers. Hope there is little con...

I guess we're a bunch of outliers (2018: California 2) and just prefer to plant when we feel like it. I planted a series (4) earlier this month, and others in my area also planted. J (having a deadline is too much like having to work) (>.<)

Eevil is one of the usual suspects for PAL Day-- doesn't have to, but does anyway--like the Finlanders, Finlandese, Finlandishers.

I see that Eevil has signed up... Eevil's websites are still down. How are the clues to be listed?

Eevil has ways But if Eevil publishes a box with no clue and no listing, that would be pure Eevil.

PAL Day is the day before the last Tour the Fort event this year. I'm taking the day off to get the planting and listing done. So Maine will have some boxes, just by pure coincidence. I'm sure it works out that way for other places events are bein...

Is it a coincidence or planned this falls on Scavenger Hunt day?
by JiffyProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: Letterbox Chatter
Is Scavenger Hunt day a real "holiday?" Then it is all coincidental. I've been hosting Tour the Fort events the Saturday of Memorial Day for 10 years.

National Scavenger Hunt day is every May 24th same as this years PAL day. Tomorrow is Lucky Penny day.

Today boxes can be listed on AtlasQuest to be counted as part of tomorrow's PAL event. To be counted by the widget the plant date needs to be changed to May 24 and there must be no restrictions on the box. This year, for once, my letterbox plant for...

there must be no restrictions on the box Not even a restriction to "Everybody"?
by WronghatProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: Letterbox Chatter
Exactly--the restriction box must be none or the widget won't count it. That being said, some of my PAL boxes in the past have not been widget worthy.

I planted 3 but one was a bonus box - ugh - so one of them won't count? Warrior Warrior curious

I planted 3 but one was a bonus box - ugh - so one of them won't count? If you put a restriction on it by using the dependency feature, the widget won't count it as part of a state's total. That's the exact same reason some of my past PAL boxes haven'...

Iowa has two on the list, plus one bonus ~ guess which one! That's all for me today, but there may be someone else out there planting right now.

If you'd like letterboxes that are planted today to add to the state totals for yesterday's International Plant a Letterbox Day, be sure to change the plant date to 5/24 when you record planting a new box. https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.php?eventI...

planted a box in Missouri. wondering how often the widget updates so MO can be recognized for 2019. Thanks.

wondering how often the widget updates so MO can be recognized for 2019. It updates immediately. It wasn't being counted because you didn't follow the rules. I went ahead and fixed the listing so it complies, but it won't count unless all of those rul...

Thanks to planters, including the usual suspects as well as some new participants, 106 new boxes are out in the world waiting to be found. Finland added to its treasure trove of boxes and now sits in 11th place internationally, far ahead of Sweden, Ru...

I am carving a stamp. I (almost) always start with the outside. I was carving the edge and I cut myself, rather deep. It was about 3-4 mm deep at a 45⁰ angle, but it is not bleeding much, unless I try to carve again. I'm out for about 30 minutes, b...
