Go to the "Boards" tab, go to "Recent Threads" (I'm assuming), find the thread you're looking for. On the Far right side there should be a hyperlink that says "Unignore". Cllick that, and you should be golden.
Monkeys attacking FL this summer!

It's been forever since I've posted on AQ, but rumors of our demise are highly exaggerated! We are planning a trip to Florida this summer and I want to start working some LBing into our plans. I'm doing all the relevant AQ searches, but would love some tips from locals or frequent visitors. We'll be in Long Boat Key for much of the time, and will likely have time to explore around the Sarasota area while there. If you live near that area I'm sure we could arrange to meet up. In the middle of our trip, we'll be going to Orlando for several days (yes, we know we're insane!). There we will be quite busy, but would love to know of any 'boxes that are not-to-be-missed or perhaps are under the radar but near other places we may already be visiting (coughMickeycoughHarry). We're also open to any non-LBing tips to make our trip more enjoyable. (We have been to the CA "Happiest Place" many, many times). Feel free to AQmail me. I can provide references if necessary :-).

Have you found the Bubble Room box? Wonder if that one is still active. Beautiful area, lots of boxes from what I remember, but it's been a few years. Welcome back!

It was boring but I also think we're a little spoiled given how awesome some of the past few tribals have been.

Man, there is one player out there that I just really dislike. I mean *really* dislike.

So, this is a totally random, weird place, but we loved the stamp/location of Gnome on the Castle Grounds. It's at Solomon's Castle in Ona, FL.

I'm in Lakeland, so if you want to get together, let me know. FloridaFour's boxes on the west coast are my favorites :)

I've been to FL a couple times years ago, mostly Longboat Key/Sarasota for family weddings. I've never letterboxed in the state and never been to the Orlando theme parks.

I thought it was good.

Did anybody think it was funny when that nitwit at tribal said, "by the way, this isn't real." I also loved the big reveal...I'm a fashion model! OMG where do they find these people?

Since you are the one person in charge or letterboxing, you should start referring to yourself with the royal "we."

so critters won't be tempted to eat them.

That's part of the gift, free critters! People rush out all over to buy furry little critters for the holiday anyway.

I shared your idea with a friend on the bus this morning so your genius will pepetuate itself even further next year. She also mentioned that her family did eggs for kids, little ones and adults. The adults were just purple and they messages in them such as "Sing the first three verses of Old McDonald", Run up and hug auntie crabby pants and do a cartwheel. Which I thought all were different and fun.

Thanks again!

Grrrrrrrrrr! Even more reason why I dislike that person. I want to slap the smug right off of that person's face.

I am beginning to think Trish has a real shot at this. She's under the radar as far as threats go, playing real cool and is in the know on most goings on.

Heads up to all those locals who didn't have a chance to get Kirbert's Air Force One carve while it was in its temporary location back in February. It has now been planted in a permanent location. Check it out!

Unfortunately, he's gonna be around at least 2 more episodes, since it's pretty real after all!

I'm enjoying the season. There have been some cool blindsides and tribal councils, and some different twists. In our Survivor Pool, I love the rule TG added about the episode title. I've never paid much attention to the titles being a part of the episode, but this season I seem to notice it more when they show up.

Not only that, but I love Rupert's justification for it...

Several years ago I had a nurse take the time to show me how to get a shot in the arm that doesn't result in local soreness. It has worked 100% of the time for me. Sit so that your arm is dangling to your side, just hanging there. Then SHAKE IT OUT by twisting your wrist and hands to relax the muscles even more. Leave it totally limp, not just in your lap, but dangling. Passing the info along, and hoping it will work for y'all too!

Shhh! Quit telling the tourists the truth!

Summer is wonderful in Florida!

As for a tip, try Tiajuana Flats if you come across one. It's great food. :)

To quote my buddy FloridaFour....."Wear gloves, protect your hands at all times and use a stick before your hand because their snakes don't hibernate"..........

Which I should have paid MUCH more attention to!!

All I can say is Saw Palmetto is sharp, brings lots of water, and wear mosquito repellant :) I probably won't be able to meet up unless you are in Tampa/Clearwater/St Pete area, but if you are, let me know.
