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.

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

Eevil's websites are still down. How are the clues to be listed?

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 being held this Saturday.

Is it a coincidence or planned this falls on Scavenger Hunt day?

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.

PAL (International Plant a Letterbox) Day 2019

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 PAL day will count for my home state.

Not even a restriction to "Everybody"?

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?

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't counted. But it will count in the PAL Day total. That's okay because I love bonus boxes more than PAL Day boxes on the widget.

I saw two turtles today. One small guy was on a floating log when a much larger guy tried to join him on the log. Little guy flipped off the spinning log and the big guy was too big for the log and couldn't climb aboard. It was a funny sight to see.

Happy turtle day, Ryan!
