I once had a box that was hidden in a log along a trail [....]

I once hid a box under a log at least 20 feet off of the trail. It was in a place where no one would go if they weren't looking for my box.

I received a report or two that boxers couldn't find my box. I went and looked for my box, and the log was missing. This wasn't a little log, it was a fallen tree at least 18" in diameter. It has just gone missing, and my box too.

I carved another stamp to replace it; same theme but different image. Since it was in a series I let people know that the new stamp was different and they should go look for it. Because of the way that AQ works with series, I renamed the old one, moved it to the end of the list of boxes and named the new one with the previous name (adding the year of replacement behind it).

I can write a note the office concerning the child carrying it (nothing bad) and they can't read it b/c it's a secret code!

Hey MA letterboxers!

I'm located in Boston and I've been slowly getting more into letterboxing. I really like the stamps component of boxing - I really like carving, collecting and seeing what kind of art gets put out there - but I'm bad at figuring out where to plant, materials, etc. I'm a city mouse and do not have a car. I love making larger stamps, which are kinda harder to hide in urban spots (and I don't really want to put them all behind museum front desks). Does anyone in MA really like the clue-writing and box-hiding parts? I'd love to meet up with people - I tried suckering my friends into this and was only partly successful - and making more boxes! I have a whole series of boxes I want to carve for but I worry about my ability to hide them!

Let me know!

EDITED to add: a couple kind people have AQ mailed me to collaborate so I am all set! Just wanted to update :) and thank you all!

So, not seeing the messages unless I hover or set to expanded view is intentional?

Usually (always) I read the board posts in the expanded layout but today all I see there are the headers without the discussion. To read the discussion I need to go to the summaries layout. This is fine but not necessarily my comfort area for reading posts. Hoping this is just a temporary situation.

It is probably just a big, but it could be a political statement. Today's theme is Guy Fawkes Day.

Sorry about that. 'Twas a minor update I did last night to fix a small bug just before I went to sleep and I wound up turning it into a much bigger bug!

It should be fixed now.

I fixed the typo in the quote to say "bug" instead of "big" so it'll make more sense that way, but that's just darned funny! Purely a coincidence! Nothing more! =)

My Kids and I have started taking them off the tops of every pop bottle they find they even talked there grandparents into saving them for you.

Thanks! It's not just bottle caps. Any hard plastic caps and lids. I think recycle #'s 2, 4, 5... water bottles, pop, medicine caps, mayonnaise, condiments, peanut butter, laundry detergent, hair spray, shampoo, cottage cheese, sour cream, etc!

One thing I noticed in my last collection, people were adding the plastic lids from carry out cups. These are not hard enough and not usable. Also, people threw in a bunch of metal tabs from pop/beer cans. Also, not usable for this collection.

I appreciate the help!

it's Going to Cost You a Extra Stamp ( I want to Stamp the TOP Stamp 2x)!.... I want A Bonus stamp because of such Short Notice to save Tops!🤣😂🤣😂🤗😂,and I suppose I should Also Save for the Feb. Event?!

No can do! Same stamp as last time! You're welcome to stamp the stamp a second time! ;)

I haven't decided if I will continue collecting the caps. But, you may as well keep collecting them for February. It's likely that I will do it again.

"The songs played by the bluesy night boxing letterboxes were too short. Just when you got into the groove and started boogeying, the music would stop, and you'd have to shine your flashlight into the box again, which was very annoying. Lame."

You WERE my new BFF but after outing me like this...well lets just say i might, might being the operative, invite you to my next slumber party. ;)

That’s a good question. I’m not sure if they were or weren’t dog friendly before. It’s hard because you have to pick a venue with lodging, meals, and plenty of trails so it limits the where greatly. That would be something to consider. I know a bunch of people camped nearby the location.

Such distractions would only steer my focus away from my true raison d'être... bringing about the downfall of that moosey miscreant, that rude ruminant, that uninformed oft-scorned lowborn palm-horn.

Such is his vileness and turpitude that I can not, WILL not, engage in other more wholesome and life-affirming activities until his evil reign has been staunched and riven from the annals (sp?) of AQ.

My sacrifice is for the greater good.
