Read Thread: Finding new letterboxers/looking for a bargain
... I suppose where one lives must make a difference. In my area, there are MANY boxes that are good for an easy entry point. Granted, several of those are mine. In fact, all my boxes are either urban or drive-bys. I'm not a hiker (or even much of...
... About a third of the time there seems to be a nest, old empty one, or a geocache. Btw, we all randomly check guard rails at interesting locations right?
... What the heck are "scare quotes" then I Googled it ... Can I go home now? I've learned something new.
I'm generally wary of light poles because where there's a light pole, there might be a camera, where's there's a camera, there might be someone watching who just might wonder what's going on.
Just for the sake of the conversation - I have been boxing for close to 20 years. I just didn't come to AQ until this summer. Really, no need to be snarky. It was just a simple thought.
i think the original post was a off season proxy for one of wassa's april fools jokes and you were all taken in by it
Below is my initial response ... Now that you've revealed that you have been boxing for almost 20 years your original post is pure troll or a gag. 30 commercial stamp light post boxes in parking lots? Fess up! There are not many 20-year boxers in circ...
... It's not being snarky to express the opinion that I don't feel it's necessary or a good idea to dummy down boxing in order to entice not particularly interested people into doing it. It's not snarky to point out that your impression of all boxes be...
I’m predicting the much-maligned newbie smackdown, as most of us have had this very lament and postulated to the boards all kinds of ways to improve the hobby. You are in very good company. This is the first time I’ve seen someone post every, single l...
... Oh, man. That was you? Sorry about the puddle.
... By “puddle”, you mean ‘brown spot’? Heathen!
I hung out at letterboxing.org for a really long time - until I found it got way out of date, and I took about a five year hiatus while my mom was declining due to dementia. I mean, really, I have no reason to lie about that or any of it. I used a diff...
... I can do that, but I don't think that the local boxers would appreciate me planting in thorny bushes and trees, up in a tree, or even on a cliff. I've done all of these for geocachers in my area, but I don't think that local letterboxers would app...
... Don't you mean reading ***and*** thinking while walking?
... There is a lot of that going on here. Learn to enjoy the snark. It can be entertaining.
... Yes, you can be.
... ... Who? Me?
... Too many things! Pop!
I deleted the last six-or-so posts to this board. This thread was getting a little nasty. I'm not moving it to the dead lemurs board--yet--but just a reminder that personal attacks against others are not appropriate. Disagreeing opinions are fine, but...
I thought the horse was dead, the lemurs were just flung.
... Don't make me stop this car!
Oh, wow, the dead lemurs board! It's been an awfully long time since anyone got excited enough about anything boxing related to have a thread even considered to be moved there. Ah, the good old days... ;)
I was just reminiscing about RogueOne. Warrior Woman remembers
OMG!!!!!! Don't even open up that can or worms again!!!
It *had* started down the road to facebutt level discussions. I call that the merry go round stage......round and round and going no place fast. Although Ryan may soon have to find another animal. https://psmag.com/environment/what-killed-these-lemurs
... Dang, did we do that!?!
... Did I do that?
Dear Lord, I wasn't going to jump in but now I am. This has been my montra as some of my closest friends know. Some of my VERY best letterboxing experiences have been where a box was missing or one was where someone carved a simple x In the old PZ-Cut....
Totally agree, Trailtracker. And when we find enough time, we will be back to Hocking Hills to look for a number of older boxes, unknown and unvisited for a long time. The experience is totally worth it.
Very well stated Trailtracker… you get a lot more out of letter boxing experiences than just the stamps…yes and there is something for everyone! WW52
