...but you created the logbook that's in one of my plants. Isn't that a close enough connection?

Sure is! It's called six degrees of logbook makin'!

I just wanted to jump in and say I looked at your series and I noticed that we planted the same type of puzzle with similar executions days apart from each other. I just wanted to let you know that I hadn't seen yours and had planted the box in the summer. Didn't want you to think I was trying to copy you soon after you published. Kirbert can tell you this is the case because he was proof solving my puzzles for me.

Anyways, if it makes you feel any better, out of the four logic problem boxes I own, only one has been found and only once since May. One a logic grid, one sudoku, and two are nonograms. Out of all I thought that the sudoku would be found by now as I actually provided the property name instead of just labeling it "Maine" or "New Hampshire". Also sudokus are more commonly known, so I figured it wouldn't scare off too many people. Still none though. The one in NH is in a touristy area and yet it still remains to have just 1 find. But that is what I expect going into it. And I still continue to make puzzles, because I enjoy the process.

From a finders point of view, I have to prepare ahead. I love puzzles, but solving before I even know a location is going to be a destination is essential. I try to solve as many puzzles for my state as I can and hope that I will get to visit them someday.

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!

there are quite a few of us who do this. Just go through the states and solve the listed mystery boxes. NE was easy - there are only 3 of them and one of them is missing. However, if i'm ever in NE. . .

Tallow. I'll cook a bunch of servings of un-seasoned/spiced/salted hamburger on Saturday and then slip it into tasty meals through out the week (with spices added). The tallow from the pan is strained Saturday immediately after cooking and folded into Sunday's biscuits...but I've never tried it for pie crust.

I'm not crazy about the allstars shows either and I'm not sure it is fair to have past winners
like Seth Aaron (sp?) on (even though I really liked him), but at least I get my fashion fix for the week :)

I have a master list of all of the stamps that I've promised, but unexpected bills have severely dwindled the postal budget. I'll be trickling the stamps out when I can, but if any of you recipients are in a hurry, you can pay for the postage using PayPal. I have plenty of mailers.

We now have green checks for trackers and boxes found in the new box widget. Could we get green checks next to the events we have signed up for? Pretty please w/ sugar on top :)

I agree. However, we also have a Finds in our logbook. I guess the same redundant principle could apply in a search of events. I have no need for it, but what will it hurt?

I tried three different browsers and only Chrome kept the information when I returned back to that page. Firefox and Explorer did not. So I'll be working on ATlasquest on Chrome for now on.:)

...unless Ryan suggest a browser that is more user friendly with the design.
ARe you there, Ryan? ;)

There are people who still use Explorer? :) Chrome or Safari will remember your form input when you revisit a page in your history. Those are the two browsers that I use most often. I got tired of Firefox interrupting me to install updates every single time I opened it up. It got to be more annoying than Adobe Acrobat (and that's saying something).

I tape an index card under the lid facing out that you can see before you even open the box with "this is not trash" "It's a letterbox", "to find out more visit, www.atlasquest.com"
The cover of the log book is laminated with our team name on the back side.

I also started to put in big black permanent marker on the back of each stamp, "ITEM NOT FOR TRADE", just incase "someone else" i.e. geocacher is too excited to read the other stuff.
