Do you ever send markers or ink?

I'm considering sending specific markers with a postal. It's a book postal, so it will already be a little on the heavy side, but I don't think the markers would add significant weight.

Does anyone ever do this? Any problems, did they go missing or get damaged?

Would it be uncool to make a log book and create a new HH and replant this.

When I did a search of Hello Kitty HH's, 38 items came up.

The change I wanted isn’t addressed.

You can download your finds into a spreadsheet and sort them however you want. The downloads do include location information so sorting by state is possible.

It just occurred to me.... maybe you'll find your stats page useful. It has a list of all the states you found boxes and when you click on them, pulls up the list of all the boxes in that state.

I didn't know there was a widget, they just started coming to me in my AQmail yesterday. But now I don't get the response, just a notice. Took me awhile, but I finally figured out which post was being responded to.

This is the first time I have heard that LTC swap hosts expect gifts...

The OP never suggested that hosts expect gifts. I certainly never do. Only that it’s a nice gesture to show the host you appreciate their efforts in hosting.

We have hosted trackers where we only received the cards required and it never once dawned on me that no one sent gifts.

It’s a small courtesy, nothing more. I certainly would never do anything as gauche as suggesting I expected anything more than is normally sent in a themed tracker exchange in the description.

Just my two cents worth.

Good judgement comes from experience.

And experience? Well, comes from poor judgement.

That explains why I'm not seeing it. So I'm not crazy after all.... ;)

The explanation doesn’t necessarily rule that out, ya know.... :)

I've updated it so the posts are as wide as your entire page. =)

You might have to refresh your browser to get the changes, but they'll eventually be picked up regardless.

And my browser caught up finally!

Thank you

Expect mud.

Also, from what I recall from several years ago, many of the boxes are pouches with folds, so the possibility of debris and bugs is big.

That said, there are some wonderful boxes at Crown Hill and it is a very neat cemetery.

Enjoy your weekend!

I was in a swap once where they were worried ppl may not have silver and gold so they sent ink pads with it.

Ryan, I apologize in advance if you've already addressed this elsewhere. When I go to my logbook and select Finds/Traditional/All/Newest, the resulting boxes are definitely not the newest boxes. Any ideas?

Not sure whether anything changed at AQ or my pages refreshed enough times, but suddenly this morning my logbook is numbered in Safari on the Mac. Yay!

Oh, I love the children's museum! I have fond memories of going there long before it was as huge as it is now!

Summer swaps?

At this point are people looking for swaps for the summer? Or have you filled up your schedule already?

This winter I've been carving images that are on my list of wants to carve. There are no swaps for many of them. One of the images is a hot air balloon...I've been wanting to host a hot air balloon tracker. But if your summer schedule is full I will hold off till the end of summer then post it for a fall date.

So many tracker ideas...so little time. ;-)
Log Book Issues (listed and unlisted finds)

I've seen the discussion about how the logbooks supposedly work.....recent unlisted finds are not showing up (although I know they're in there because my F count is accurate); but now listed finds aren't showing either. Dbare and I found two listed boxes over the last two days that are not showing in our logbooks (302624 and 302658). I can't figure out if I've got something as "preference" not checked? Anyone have any ideas?

Looks like you have over 500 finds this year already (WOW!, really??), so the list won't show all of them. I don't know how it decides which ones to show, since they don't show up when sorting by newest. But, when I added 'pale' under the starts with sort option for your logbook, it popped up.

Thank you.....I'm guessing I'm just weak in terms of understanding how the searches run.....we were blessed to be able to attend the last of the Night Owls event in Maine....what a start to the year that was......amazing carves and a ton of boxes!!

That's what I was afraid of. I will have to see which ones I can get without getting muddy.

Oh yea! I was there, too! I found tons, too! I guess I could have over 500 finds, too. I don’t really consider any of the hotel boxes or bucks boxes that were just laying out to be ‘traditional’ boxes though. So if they were listed that way, I manually logged them as HIPS event boxes. I’m weird, I want the online log to match what my real logbook reflects. 😜

There's a Board for stamp requests. You might reach more people there who enjoy carving/donating stamps.
