OK... so I'm planning to go for these on Monday, 12/3. I know that's weird but I'm taking the day off work anyway because we'll be out late the night before and it's also my actual birthday. Plus the weather (right now) looks good. If anyone wants to coordinate let me know! After I find the series my sister will put the clues online for everyone. :)

As much fun as I have had traveling the back roads and planting boxes wherever I go, I'm going to have to hang up my hat for a while. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 weeks ago. Tomorrow I have surgery. Sometime right before or after Christmas I will start heavy-duty kick-my-ass chemo, at which point I will likely hibernate even more out of sight than I already have been.

When Live & Breathe was going on, I had a few people ask if I had time to meet up for exchanges. I didn't because I was in the process of having tests. And, honestly, I've enjoyed the anonymity out here in Texas. I haven't been to an event since 2010 when I was living in east TN.

But I had planned to meet up with a couple of local letterboxers to pass off a couple of HH that I can't move forward. I thought I'd make a mini-event (which is not an event-event) to see if any other local (Dallas, TX area) letterboxers would like to come have dinner with us. There will be no event stamp because I have surgery tomorrow and I can't guarantee I'll feel like carving anything after that. (But if someone feels like creating one and donating it, I'll set it out.)

I'm thinking the best date would be Friday, Decemeber 14... evening because I don't know yet if I'll have appointments during the day. Location will be near Allen, TX. There are many letterboxes to find in the area, so if you travel to spend the night you won't be without letterboxes to find.

I want to go ahead and list the event this afternoon but I thought I'd post here for comments or suggestions before I make it official.

Yay! This is good to know. We live in Northford, but are unable to make the hike on Saturday, but we will definitely be going soon! We have a series in mind to plant, so maybe this will be the perfect spot.

I'm sure you will enjoy this Preserve. It has interesting features and you are bound to find good hiding places for your boxes. I think it is always an advantage to have boxes close to home so as to keep an eye on them.

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 keep it civil.

I'll be thinking about you while I'm sitting at my desk at work!

We'll probably head out for these the following weekend as long as the clues are published by then.

I’ll be thinking of you and I encourage you to take it VERY easy for a while. I made the sorry mistake of rushing into things too quickly (I also had 3 children under 6 at the time) after my mastectomy and subsequent treatment. Please be easy on yourself. No stamp is worth sheer exhaustion. Trust me, just breathing for a while could be difficult. Everyone will understand. (hug)

Box maintenance

I checked on a box & went to note the maintenance report. There was the option to check found or missing, so I checked found. This increased the boxes “f” count. Was I not supposed to do that? I looked at my atlas quest logbook & it doesn’t show up for my finds list. I also didn’t see a way to delete it.

I checked your listing on Tarot symbol: sun and it looks like you did it right. The maintenance check shows up on the F-Summary as a Find so that seekers can see it is still being found--if the last entry were an x many would suspect that it has gone missing and not give it a shot.
