Thanks.

It works the same way whether you use a desktop or an iPad. Drag the header of the widget to where you want it to go.

Is anyone else having to scroll down past a vertical listing of "Home", "Toolbox", "Boards", etc, which were previously horizontal at the top of the page?

If you use a Windows machine, press Ctrl+F5 to refresh your cache.

If you're using a mobile device, try using the "incognito" window which seems to bypass the cached pages. (At least it does on my Android device.)

If you're using something else.... I have no idea to how refresh the cache on your browser but if all else fails, being patient will fix things. Your browser is just using an old CSS page that is no longer relevant and it'll start working correctly as soon as it picks up the new version which happens when it happens....

For iPad and iPhone, go to settings, safari, and clear history. You'll need to sign again, but then all will be right with the world. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Apple Laptop, Chrome.

I clicked on Chrome (upper left)-> Clear Browsing Data, checked 3 boxes (browsing history, cookies..., caches images....). Clicked on the "Clear data" button, and now it looks normal for me.

Good luck!

Not for me. I can only rearrange them on my desktop.

Site totally screwed up in Chrome. I fail to see why this should be happening now when it was fine before.

I cleared the history and it is ok for the moment. Why should we have to be doing these things just to view the site properly?

I'm so glad to hear that a maintenance plan is in place for SM boxes! And, yes, the 4 Michigan letterboxers who went on a Safari Man jaunt in May did complete maintenance on the boxes we found. You don't have to include those in your plans.

I hope it works out for you all do get that done :).

Kudos to you! I just hope more people will get out and find (and maintain) Safari Man's boxes. They are absolute treasures!

On our three-day Safari Man quest earlier this year, we Michigan gals met with poison ivy, ticks, thorns, rain, lightning, radically changed landscapes, and missing boxes.....but we came home with 40 precious Safari Man carves in our logbooks. It was an awesome letterboxing trip.

Especially if you come to find the eight SM boxes here in Virginia Beach.

That sounds like a story that you need to tell the rest of us.

4 Bugs 2 Spiders Orange Rocks (GCYK0M) is a geocache where you need knee pads. It is in an artificial tunnel next to the side of the road. There are small rocks, larger than gravel, all over the ground of the tunnel. The geocache is about half way through it.

I have thought of hiding a letterbox there. The first problem is, what do I carve that would be appropriate for a place like that? Golum? The second problem is, how many of the local letterboxers would be willing to do the crawl for a stamp image?

The spirit is willing but the flesh (especially the artificial knee) is weak. 8~P

Be careful what you ask for. I have planted a geocache/letterbox (it is listed here and there) that requires a watercraft. I went with the one group of geocachers that went to find it and watched while they looked for it. I'm thinking of making a series of geocache/letterbox (listed both places) on that same island.

hi,
I carved out a discarded book to hide a stamp and log book in. i tried to glue pagers together but they do not want to stick together. How did other people get pages to stick together? What glue is best to use? I tried glue stick.
thanks for any info you can share.
