The geocacher looked like a regular ol' hiker, not like the stamp thief that he turned out to be

Might have looked like me but it wasn't me!

It just seems suspicious to me that with all the stamps hanging yest. it was ONLY the bonus boxes that were hacked. Perhaps someone doesn't like BBs??

Clue 3 = canopic jars.

Clue 2 correction. Hydrogen was the real clue. It was unintentionally mispelled. This is important to clarify as misspelled words can be an additional layer of clues. Thanks to foxfriend and jampersandj.

If you drive by a field of steers and one of them is a bull, it is an Irish Bull.

did anyone get the green check marks back? I still don't see them when I look at someone else's log book.
I REALLY liked knowing if I had the same boxes....
I REALLY liked the green check marks.
who knew a simple check could make me so happy. After a big event like the Pi day event, it's really easy to know if I forgot a box or if I didn't know the name of a stamp by looking at someone else's log book.

Has anyone heard of Blaze On? Before I recycle any stamps I'd like to know this is a legitimate letterboxer. I've never come across a letterboxer with zero finds and a couple of plants. It strikes me as odd.

One of the plants is a Kirbert carved stamp and he's listed as owner.

Go to the find in your logbook. On the far right end of the line is an icon that I think is a remove find icon.

Did the cacher sign into the logbook? Perhaps you can contact them and explain the situation. A little education is a good thing in these times.

Yes, legitimate. Well, at least in the sense that ANY of us are "legitimate".
And I'm sure as heck not delving into the realm of parentage.

click on your checkmark

We used to have green checkmarks beside finds but I don't have those anymore since the update. Is that now a premium feature?

Unfortunately, there wasn't a logbook, so we couldn't catch him that way!

How's about having RIClimber enter the bonus box as a geocache on the geocaching site and see if regular old hiker records a find on the internet.?

Because it's only 350 feet from another geocache. They need to be 528 feet apart.

And no, none of the nearby caches have been logged. Last finder was January 6th.

Hmmm. Maybe he just hasn't had time to sign in yet. Is the nearby geocache one of your own---If it is you could unlist it for a while so that you could then list the bonus box as bait.

I wonder if it was the dude that passed me on the MidState trail. I got there just after Salad Rocket, around 9 am, to do the Irrational series. I was completely alone on the trail until I started up the MidState. I noticed a single male hiker, young man, coming up behind me so I pocketed my clues and just walked along and stopped at the flooded section of the trail where we veered left to go to Event central to allow him to pass me. I noted the slim profile of his orange backpack that nestled between his shoulder blades. Then I ran into RIClimber. Did not see the dude at Event central when I got there (only CoffeeSpoons was there). Hmmm.

My photo originally loaded sideways but that often happens on my computer also.

That's interesting. I never had it happen n the laptop. Maybe the file was just never too large.

AQ often times out when I am adding a message or a clue

Yeah, they can time out on the laptop also.
