I would be much more tolerant of these ongoing issues if there was some kind of communication with people, let people know what's going on and why. There's none on facebook either. It's frustrating to have it happen all the time and no one will let people know anything.

It's definitely frustrating, but I don't think Choi gets much in the way of funding for the work he does. I'd be happy to donate again if I thought it would help.

It's the lack of communication with people that I have an issue with.

Funding has nothing to do with posting here or on the LBNA facebook page and letting people know what the problem is and the reason for it being ongoing. I'm sure people would be more understanding if he would communicate.

I hang the water bottle from a water bottle bag (findable at outdoor stores or bigger summer fairs :>) across the opposite way from my small cloth bag - evens out the weight that way!

But is there a way to list where you left it? Or is that the kind of thing best left in mail to the owner?

Not sure how to let my clues show up on LbNA when I do all my work in AQ - anyone?

I sign into LBNA, go to Add a letterbox, and cut and paste from my AQ listing.

I often add a new letterbox on LbNA, put in all the traditional information and then simply paste the link to the AQ clue. Then, any changes made to the clues on AQ are automatically made on the LbNA listing - no need for maintaining twice as many listings. However, this still gives people who are new to the hobby or those who chiefly use LbNA access to our boxes. By hosting the clue on AQ, they are able to be accessed more readily, given recent outages. It's important to note that if you choose to use restrictions on your AQ boxes this method will not work as well.

I've found some excellent LbNA-only boxes, as I know you have, WW! There's still plenty to offer over there in terms of older clues and clues by newer boxers as well. For many letterboxers, the first introduction they have to the hobby is through LbNA.

If you are concerned about downtime, why not list the letterbox on AQ and then paste the link to the clues in a listing on LbNA? Then only one listing need be maintained.

There's a note icon on the Hitchhiker's display page that you can use to write in where you left it. I suppose you could add where you left it in the record section where it asks where you found it. I don't do either. If I remember, I just write where I left it in my logbook.

so I don't use restrictions, so that won't be a problem. But I've got a bunch of clues in AQ that I'd like to marry over to LbNA so that when I update a clue in AQ it updates in LbNA as well. Is that possible?

LbNA has a feature when adding a new box that allows you to import a link to another site where the clues are hosted. I just paste the link to the AQ clue in here. If you haven't yet created LbNA listings for your boxes, this is the way to go. If you already have, you can edit the box, erase the text clue and add in the link to the AQ so that you will not have to maintain two clues for each box.

I might be able to pick up a couple letterboxes this weekend in Branson, while chaperoning the kids' school music trip! Both the older two are in choir. The band director scheduled some training and performance times for both band and choir in Branson! Yay!

If one wants to look for old LBNA boxes in a certain state and county, one has to be able to actually *get* onto the site and search. Having it go down all the time doesn't help that.

There are old boxes that have never been on AQ, listed by people that are no longer boxing.

It's not just about listing boxes.

This is true - I do believe that there is much inherent history and value in LbNA, especially given my personal penchant for looking for older boxes on longer hikes, as I know you like to do. Some of the best boxes I've found have been LbNA-only boxes. Also, many new to letterboxing have their first experiences on LbNA. Might the downtime discourage letterboxers new and old? Sure. I'm just at a loss as to what I'm supposed to do about it.

It's not just about listing boxes.

Definitely true, but that was the issue that Sagacorn addressed in the message I replied to. Certainly it's also about maintaining access to clues and encouraging people to take part in and actually participating in letterboxing.

While LbNA does go down occasionally, it's not all the time, and most of the time it's working. Seems like it's episodic. Like for a week it will be down quite a bit, then it will be fine for a few months, then it will act up again. Or maybe that's just me.

Oh! Enjoy Branson. I'm hoping to spend a couple days there in June sometime and I too will probably pick up a couple letterboxes while there. If you run into something I shouldn't waste time on let me know. But boxes there seem to be in pretty good shape overall, at least for the drive-bys.

Hopefully by now some of the dust has settled from the amazing Geek Fest 2 and life is returning to normal for the hosts. Unfortunately, after injuring myself I had to head home before the announcements of the Power Plant Challenge on Saturday evening so I was wondering if the results could be posted here. Perhaps listing the top planters and the total number of boxes that this challenge generated would be interesting to many of us....or at least to me! Thanks for a wonderful time even though mine was cut short!

The new location of a HH is not made public, so that it's a surprise for the next finder. I guess you could contact the owner though.
