I’m hosting an event in October and want to do some sort of night box scavenger hint - I just got back from an event where I talked with a couple people who had some very creative ideas - so now it’s your turn to sound off ! Tell me your creative ideas...

I've seen sets with fire tacks used to set up the trail and to note the location of the boxes. I REALLY enjoyed LCABs set at SOHT the last time we were there.....She set out the boxes with small firefly lights to be looked for to find the boxes.

Question for the fans, I’m planning out a ragged mountain hike, and I’m looking at clueless/silent Doug’s Mexican tiles boxes, realizing all the blazes have changed. Does anybody have knowledge of what trails used to be blazed? Not sure on: White blaz...

I don't see why anyone can't post as loving and accepting LGBTQ-friendly persons, as just about every letterboxer I have met generally is.

... Funny, my company is sending me the week after that. Which I interpret to mean they want me clean up whatever Crazy hijinx Wassa let’s loose in England. Unfortunately, that means I will definitely be too busy to make it out to Dartmoor on this trip.

... Yeah. That was kinda my point. Any one of those things has in the past caused kerfluffles. I don't agree/disagree w/ how they do things over there & obviously some info is now outdated. I rather liked the idea of getting 100 finds, too. Not unlike...

Nope! I am saving it for when we convince Open Space to host L&B again. Mwahahaha! JK.

Now you want us to pay for the pathtags? Nevermind, I'll just go back out an pull the 118 I've planted so far. ... It really takes the fun out of prizes when you are expected to pay for them. And why would you want to reorder? This was supposed to b...

... The point I was making, though I did it with sarcasm. It is fun doing it my way. And you can do it your way. And those who want to return to the original ways can play it their way. Let's all just have fun.

There are different ideas in night boxing. One fun one is to make the hunt scary. Don't follow a trail but rather bushwhack through the woods from start to finish. Plant some rubber snakes, rats and spiders along the route, including hanging from...

Hidden in an open field in pouches with reflective tape, everyone uses flashlights. Stagger them out in groups of 4 onto the field with a very a visual map of clues. This is if you're looking for inexpensive and easy way of doing it.

If you want a local to hike with let me know. Also look into Arabia and Panola mountains, I hear they are really great too.

Sadly, as someone who is from Blacksburg and had people they knew die in the shootings, the Virginia Tech Massacre is no longer the worst shooting in the history of the US. This should be changed on the history fact.

Oh shoot! We'll be in Boston for my nephew's graduation that weekend! Happy hunting! We'll have to head up your way another time and check out all the new boxes. We really appreciate you taking the time to carve, plan and plant all these new boxes....
