I did some cemetery boxes in Connecticut today. Perfect for winter. In and out of the car, getting warmed up and sipping coffee between boxes. Though the coffee didn't stay hot for very long. But still......

It was a beautiful, sunny day.
Congrats to carry on grandma

I think I asked about this once before. Someone said, go out and plant new boxes so the old ones go down on the list and you don't see them. Good luck.

That’s because I’m not boxing anymore:-)

So true. And now that I think about it, Wanda and Pete have probably found most of them, just not logged them.

How old....I'll give you a clue...Carry On Grandma is as old as Jack Benny always said he was. How long has she been Boxing...long enough to get 5000 boxes. My congrats to Carry On Grandma...I've enjoyed meeting you on a number of occassions and hope to see you soon on another trail. Keep on carrying on.

When you log a find, a green check mark appears next to it on your future searches. I wonder if that same checkmark could stay β€œattached” to the box name, so wherever the name appears (like newest boxes on your β€œmy page”), the green check mark shows up. It wouldn’t eliminate them from the list, but at least you could readily spot them?

Is there any way to have a "hide" feature on the "newest letterbox plants" section on "my page?"

If you edit the widget, there should now be an option to hide finds. =)

Dead letter office?

A post mortem?

Was he working the graveyard shift? Maybe he thought his mom was buried alive there and he was trying to letter out?

The solution of the mystery postal was astronaut. This one proved rather difficult. Will try to do better next time. The explanation of clues follows:

1. A River in Utah. - This was a rather tricky clue based on Doctor Who. River Song in an episode is to kill the Doctor wearing a spacesuit in a lake in Utah. Lake Silencio. Ergo a river in Utah.
2. Fruit loops - This is from Big Bang Theory. Howard was an astronaut for one mission. His captain gave him the nickname Fruit Loops. Best part of this clue is the existence of a Fruit Loops trail in Utah.
3. MTV - Probably dating myself. MTV started when I was in college. One of their logo images is an astronaut planting an MTV flag on the moon.
4. Reluctant - The reluctant astronaut is a movie with Don Knotts He is a NASA janitor and is sent into space.
5. Capricorn - Involves the movie Capricorn One. Involves a faked Mars mission. Government tries to kill the astronauts to cover up the fake.
6. 1969 - Date of the first moon landing (Apollo 11)
7. Houston - The call name for Mission Control
8. The Eagle has landed. - Message sent by Apollo 11. Also considered using the message "we are all taking a space walk". This would have been about a Big Bang Episode when Howard's waste disposal system failed on a NASA mission. The astronauts decided to all take a space walk to avoid the issue.
