I am very interested! Can you be more specific about testing requirements?

Thanks for the willingness of whoever is putting the app together. Loved Box Radar & look forward to having something back that is similar!

Even though you live in SC now, you will always be one of those "Crazy NC boxers!"
It was great spending time with you last weekend - and who were all those middle-aged people drinking beer?

Have a wonderful day!

As someone else said, carving is an individual skill. We all use different tools, different techniques, and have various limitations, preferences, and experience levels. The service that Stampeaz/Webfoot provides, is to make and offer a variety of materials, so virtually anyone can make SOMETHING work for them. I join in thanking her for great work!!

From Merriam Webster definition 3b:

one unit of a book comprising a group of printed sheets that are folded and stitched together

A book, including a log book, is made up of multiple signatures. However, our usage of log book is wider. I've seen some log books made up of interesting folds and cuts of paper.

For those who may not have stayed in a cabin, it was well worth the $! We had a cabin with two bedrooms, one bath, and a loft. Each bedroom had one double bed, and the loft had two double beds. It also had an open plan kitchen/dining/living area with cable TV, and had a large back deck, and a fire pit area.

I didn't realize that I wouldn't have to pack sleeping bags and pillows etc. so I brought all of those things. However, the beds were nicely made with good quality linens, and even towels and small bars of soap were included.

I can't wait to experience the cabins again! They were a great way to enjoy the weekend!

This was definitely a first class event in every way. Praise certainly goes out to everyone involved in making this a big success. Even with the rain pouring down, the letterboxers seemed to be in good spirits. The weather was tame compared to the snowstorm that met me during the last few hours of my drive back to St Louis today.

It's the attention to details and personal touches that really made this a fabulous event. (Loved the hand painted signs at the start of each trail.) BIG THANKS to SHH for being such a wonderful hostess.

It was great to see so many old friends again and put new names and faces together. The rainy weather definitely didn't stop this group from having a blast. Hope to see you all on the trails again soon!

The roads were clear, and the parking lot had been packed down by previous vehicles. The trail was easy to follow at first, but I lost it about half way to the location. I even went the wrong way, but when there was no clear way I went back to where I was sure and tried again. I eventually found the place along the trail and planted the letterbox.

Then I went back uphill, through the knee-deep snow. 🐸 It is too bad that it wasn't a frog stamp that I was planting. 🐸

After this tangent I made, I thought of carving a stamp for every animal emoji, but there are too many. There are only 2 dog glyphs but 11 cat glyphs. (See page 2.) This means that the cats rule the Internet.

I am coming to visit NJ for 3-4 days in late Jan. early Feb. I don't know much about the state but I'm looking for attractions that might be good for 3 older woman to do besides boxing. I'm the only boxer but they will indulge me for a few boxes. So I'm looking for a few really memorable boxes also. Our plans are up in the air, we just know NJ and the appx. time frame.
Not sure of which part of the state, the exact dates, etc. We are looking for attractions and any outdoor short trip/attraction that is worth seeing. So come on NewJerseyites pump up your state.
