Mango is very nice flavor for tea. You'll have to try that next visit.

Gives me an awesome idea for an LTC tracker!

I worry they might receive demerit consideration though

Nah - we're talking the well-thought out, thoroughly considered, consistently analyzed and continually re-rated peanut jar (with ribs) and retro-fitted gasket. This is not your throw away, take out food container!

And since it's a Kirbert jar, it's on a leash!

I am thinking of hosting my first postal ring and wondering if there would be any interest in a Downton Abbey ring? If interested, is there a time frame that works best for you?

Not really, hardwood sticks are considered RETRO, and retro is always more expensive! ;)

Umm, if it is in your driveway, ya gotta do something with it one way or another. On the hill or in the yard, knock yourself out just having fun.

Or maybe just enjoying the fire in the fireplace!

The aluminum hiking stick is probably made by a machine and/or low-wage labor...doesn't surprise me that it's less expensive.

Made this and very delightful. Friends also agree

Apple Pie

Ingrediants:
1.) 2 gallons of apple cider
2.) ½ gallon of apple juice
3.) 9 cinnamon sticks
4.) 2 cups of brown sugar
5.) 1 liter of 190 proof Everclear

Process:
1.) Mix 2 gallons of apple cider, ½ gallons of apple juice, and 9 cinnamon sticks (leave cinnamon sticks whole).
2.) Bring to a boil.
3.) After it begins to boil add 2 cups of brown sugar.
4.) Continue boiling for one hour.
5.) Let everything cool to room temp then add Everclear or moonshine.
6.) Refrigerate for approximately one week prior to consumption

Some states may not legally sell Everclear, locally only one liquor store sells it. Need special license. Heard 151 rum works too

Serve in mason jars( screw top). I challenge your Kingship, lol

Your apple pie sounds delish, but nothing warms you on a cold winter night like a swig of mayonnaise.

I worry they might receive demerit consideration though, by the critical eyes of people rating boxes.

I'd think an unusual container would be a plus. As long as it stays dry inside.

There are so many great resources on Atlas Quest. I'm brand new to letterboxing and have learned a lot by going through the glossary and tutorials. I do have a question, and the answer may be that it's just a matter of preference to keep it secret: why do some people post their signature stamp on their profile while others do not? They might have a photo and a comment instead. Is keeping your sig stamp secret in some ways better than having it on your profile?

Thanks, in advance, for input.

It is just personal preference. Some people do like to keep it a surprise for in person or to be found in the in the wild log books. Others don't.

Kind of like Campbell's chicken noodle versus grandma's soup. It'll do what you want it to do, but homemade is always better.

Dependent Box/Newest Letterbox Listing

If I post a box that is dependent on another letterbox being found, does it still show up in the "Newest Letterbox" widget? If so, what can someone see when they click on it, if they haven't found the parent box?

You can list it as a bonus box. That way it won't be attached to the "host" box online. I think it still shows up as a newly listed box though.

Anyone who uses possibly illegal liquor is my kinda guy. Please come to TALE 10. (It's a potluck, hint,hint.)

I especially like the idea that if you don't bring it to room temp before adding the Everclear, the whole mess could explode. I'm good that way.

Also, one of the key words is "collapsible". Much easier to build and ship small plastic parts than a big piece of fancy, treated lumber.

Right, it would be a bonus box, listed separately but dependent on another box. However, why would a dependent box be allowed to be posted under the newest letterboxes? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of a box being dependent at all?

Dependency means that the listing is only visible to people who have found the "parent" box. So if it is dependent on a box that someone has already found, they will see it in the widget, but nobody else will. Just as if you listed a box with restrictions. If it has a P restriction of 1, anyone who has planted a box will see it in the widget, but others will not.
