If your wood warps, you used the wrong wood. Use oak.

If your stamped image has gaps in it, you forgot to include a layer of foam between the rubber and the wood. Something soft like pipe insulation tape is called for.

I have the numbers now but I think they weren't there before? Not sure.

I thought the logbook was fine before the update. ::::shrug::::

can I ask what state this is in

Whatever you do don't temporary or otherwise plant in Prince William Forest Park, Dumfries, VA. There was an event there and it was supposed to be a 2 day event and the ranger forced us to pull all the boxes on the morning of the first day. It was very sad as the event planner had worked very hard and many people had come and we were also very disappointed!!!

The people it matters to can see my boxes, which after seeing your stats (sketchy-looking guy) that it won't matter at all.

Just an alias that I thought might fit the logbook stalking theme. Is that 2018 in your profile? Congrats on one year of boxing!!!

I remember that. I think it was decided that maybe he was just a jerk on a power trip. Just our luck that he noticed.

Okay, I have created a tracker for anyone interested in planting a SKY 2019 letterbox! It is an open tracker--you are welcome to join if you are just planning to do the challenge and want to know more about what's going on. Also if you are one of the folks who likes to carve but not plant or vice versa, please join and we'll find you a buddy!

I will also post on the Sky's the Limit board.

In case you haven't been following on the CT board, the sites for the 2019 DEEP Sky's the Limit Challenge have been posted. Half of them are repeats from previous years, but I'm hoping people will still be interested in planting new boxes. So I have posted a tracker: https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.php?trackerId=10144

I got a ticket for putting out a temporary box at my campsite in a state park during an event.

I feel for you. I was arrested once at an event, under similar circumstances. Cuffs and everything. Good times, good times.

Rumor has it that over 50+ killers have been sighted. Are you brave enough to face the killers? OR...will you become a victim?

Yeah, but he let you go pretty quick. We were all a little disappointed never to see you in the back of the squad car. *nodding*

no state park in texas allows letterboxes without a permit. Which is a very very lengthy process...

Changes like this make me happy that my REAL logbook is an excel spreadsheet that I have maintained for 15 years.

That reminds me... I've been meaning to create a way for people to do just that and it's now live! Look for links to download finds, plants and attempts at the bottom of your profile page.

The data comes straight out of the database without any attempt at formatting stuff to look pretty. Very bare-bones, but for anyone who wants to do this, you can! =)

Maybe I'm just missing something, but I can't get your example search to work for me. I go to advanced search and put a single letter in the box name field, and I only get boxes with that single letter alone in their name. I don't get a list of "begins with" or "includes".

I don't know if the browser makes a difference for anyone else but I just realized that if I go on AQ in Safari I have no numbers in my logbook. But with Chrome I have them.

I have had to stop looking at AQ on Safari. Pages won't complete loading and keep freezing up.

Try inserting a carat--^--before the single letter.

More info about basic search

I should confess that I didn't know this. Your post got me curious enough to go digging.
