Is there a list of EVERYone who've found them?

I think there's only a list for the top ten. It says how many total finders you've had, but I guess it's up to you to track them down.

And then of course there are all those finders who don't log their finds on AQ....

and it speaks the street names.

yes, but can it pronounce them? Technically, Garmins "speak" the street names as well, which usually makes everyone in the car both scratch their heads and belly laugh out loud.

After all, we had the absolute pleasure of going to "Georgia Goo -de stonns Road" yesterday. After, of course, driving on several "BOOOL e vahrd"s.

Jelly doughnuts and paczki are similar, but paczki are richer (and fattier) because they were traditionally made to use up the lard in the house right before Lent. That's why Fat Tuesday is also known as Paczki Day (at least here in the Chicago area, which has a LARGE Polish population).

Plus the fillings for paczki are quite varied, as shown in the show last night. That red jelly stuff that is usually in regular jelly doughnuts pales in comparison. What flavor is that stuff supposed to be, anyway??

I would love to use my iphone 5 in the car but with a lifeproof case on it I haven't been able to find a good windshield mount. I've tried the universal windshield mounts, 3 so far and none held fast to the windshield. Either they popped off right away or the driving vibrations loosened the phone from the grips. Anyone had any luck with windshield mounts?

If you had 10 boxes and 1 person found all of them, you'd have 1 finder and 10 finds. If you had 20 boxes that 25 people all found, you'd have 25 finders and 500 finds. 246 finders can easily add up to 2500 finds.

That is sooooo SWEET!!

My Elmwood / Pinewood United box has a comment in the original logbook:
"Danny asked me to married him and I said yes!"

There are 3 logbooks in that box now. But I left that original logbook so that others can enjoy the comment.

Welcome to letterboxing! I only visit Colorado for a week or two each year (at least until I retire!) but I have enjoyed the boxes I have found there as well. I've even planted a couple in the Ouray area. Have fun, it's a great way to explore new areas and find new places in areas you thought you already knew well.

I value MissMoon's opinion. She makes some very valid points about mystery and puzzle boxes not being the most commonly found boxes.
I value everyone's opinion, but with all due respect, I live in NH and while I don't have 9 years of experience, I do have 6, So I am not exactly a newbie here...

I definitely agree, the modern ones don't do much for me....except the children's library in Camarillo, Ca!!

word is that the folks that designed it have worked for Disney. It is absolutely gorgeous!!! The Children's area especially, but the whole library too!!

I feel like a dog who's slipped it's leash and is out on the run! After 6 weeks of baby steps, setbacks and inactivity, getting out on the trail has been HEAVEN! The weather is so beautiful! no bugs, cool enough to wear denim without sweating to death, so I can go in the scratchy stuff, and open trails!

Awesome! That's all I have to say, just freaking awesome!

Thank you to all my letterboxing friends who put cool things out on the trail for me to find! Trail hiking has been about the best rehab for my foot! I can almost walk uneven trails without pain! Sweet deal!

Just lots of happy today. :)
