I perspnally prefer to sew them on, but iron ons can be sewn on. Please let me know if you create or have a patch made up. I would be interested in purchasing a couple.

For anyone that has viewed these, plese understand that "The Pirate" is not my "trailstick." My son didn't want to wear a nametag, and I figured he would usually be around me, so I drew the arrow to him. (he's little.)

My trailstick could not even WEAR an eyepatch. He only HAS on eye. He wouldn't be able to see. (he's not so little) (that's my story and I'm stickin to it)

New logbook making tutorial!

This just in! Brought to you by Lighting the Way and Dunhom5, how to make your own logbook tutorial. =)

http://www.atlasquest.com//tutorials/logbooks/codex/

I should point out--there are a LOT of different ways to make a logbook, so I put this into its own directory named after the type of binding it uses (codex). I can add a lot more types of bindings if you prefer something else. Ideally, I'd love to see a whole collection of different types of logbooks one can create.

If you have any questions about this tutorial or how to make logbooks, you should post to the Logbook Logistics board rather than this one.

Happy trails!

Let me pose a scenario...
Board: Traditional Letterboxes

I have a scenario I was wondering how to handle. I have got my girlfriend into carving ( Lady Lilac) and she is carving stamps to plant in traditional boxes. I am sure I will be going along with her to plant her boxes. She will be doing the planing I will just be there for moral support and saftey/guardian/companionship reasons. We have seperate trail names and I dont see the need to change that. That being said how would you handle me "finding" her boxes, or are they off limits cause I was there for the planting. I know some people take great pride in being first finders *coughcoughthepheonixcoughcough* :-) I would never want to take that away from people by listing myself as a first finder but would iI have to come back after a first finder to the officially log my find. would I pre stamp my image in anticipation of my find (I am prettty sure no on that one) to not actually have to phyicically go back? Or am i never allowed to find it? How do others out there handle these situations? I am sure I am not the only one who has been in this situation.

Thanks Looking forward to everyones answers.

Umm, I have the same situation going on, and we just plant them together and both take credit for the plant by marking one of us as the carver and one as the author. I suppose you could find a box if you weren't around for her planting it, and vice versa.

Just my two-cents.

In Denver there is a large water amusement park called Hyland Hills Water World and the kids part is called Wally World. Wally is a large walrus mascot that spits water onto unsuspecting small children.

So, out here in the west you can really go to Wally World (both in the amusement park/water park sense and the sprawling megastore sense)

Yeah Colorado,

I suppose that depends on if you are a "numbers" person. I would not count it as a find if I was there for the planting because it seems that would totally miss the point of "finding." I would definitely get an imprint in my logbook, and maybe even stamp into the box's book as a "co-planter" or something, but not claim the find or the "FF" status for sure.

That's just what I would do.

We have the same thing in our family. Three trail names: one for myself and one for each of the two kiddos. I plant with my children (they help carve, camo boxes, find spots, etc). Only two people get planting credit. We don't usually let the third party count it as a find because our whole family knows where the box is. If there isn't any hunting or true "finding" happening, it probably shouldn't be included in an "f" count. Happy boxing,

I wrote out a whole long explanation...and realized it made little sense, so let me pose it in the form of a story.

***

Suzie Q Boxer and Mary Jane Stamper go out on a long day of boxing. Suzie Q likes to plant on trips as well, and Mary Jane is frequently along. Suzie Q finds a spot to plant her letterbox, and offers Mary Jane the opportunity to stamp in. Why not? Why make Mary Jane take another long trip when she's right there?

Mary Jane stamps her logbook, and stamps into the lb's log, notating by her siggy stamp and the date that she was 'along for the plant'. She doesn't plan to take FF credit, and any FF prizes are repackaged before the box is planted.

Once Suzie Q and Mary Jane return home, Suzie Q lists the lb on AQ, complete with clues, etc. Mary Jane tags the box to watch, but does not log the find. Mary Jane waits until the box is found, and notices the day she sees THE_First Finder log the box as a find. At this point, both Suzie and Mary Jane know the box has been found, and Mary Jane now logs her find on the original plant date.

*****

Thus ends my little story lesson. It makes more sense that way than just trying to explain it...lol

That's what I offer to those with me on a plant, and everyone (so far, knock wood) has be gracious enough to honor my wishes regarding logging the find. That way, I get the plant, and they get a stamp to add to their F count.

Hope that helps.

I should probably also point out that anyone along for the plant usually has no part in the creation of the letterbox, the clues, etc. They may help scout an area a bit, but generally this is my individual letterbox, and I would have planted it, with or without the extra boxers along. So, giving them planter or author status isn't correct in this sense. It's *not* their letterbox in any way. They just happen to be there when I stuck the lock n lock in a hidey hole.

So, I say give them the F count...after it has its more traditional FF. :-)
