Re: Plant Date for Reserved Boxes

Any "creation date" (I know what you are referring to, just sounds like a newish term) that falls outside the PAL "window" precludes a box from PAL consideration? I'm not a PAL fan, just would like a clarification since I'm not seeing an issue reserving an idea to work on over a period of time in hopes of creating a quality product and then executing the actual box during the PAL parameters. I can't imagine the conception to fruition for a legitimate PAL box has to be within that short time frame.

-confused in Chelmsford

PS How about a PyFB (plant you finest box) day once a year.

PPS If this line of questioning is silly, please refer to our trail name.

Yes.

I'm not seeing an issue reserving an idea to work on over a period of time in hopes of creating a quality product and then executing the actual box during the PAL parameters.

I don't see an issue with that either--but it won't count as a PAL Day box because there were issues in the past with people who planted several dozen boxes over a period of months then activated all the boxes at once on PAL Day... which kind of defeats the whole purpose of PAL Day. So I stopped counting those, and the easiest way for me to identify boxes that were really planted long before PAL Day was the creation date.

If it knocks a few of the legitimate plants out from being counted.... Well, I made the rules clear. And if it's just a "placeholder" with a name, it's not hard for someone to delete the reserved listing and just create a fresh one.

But basically, it's a legacy from people abusing the system in years past. In fact, several of the rules were created due to past abuses.

A heartily fine hurrah to one of my favorite people, my very first letterboxing crush. I saw those stamps and knew I needed more. How great it was to finally meet you and I'm glad I can count you among my friends :)

I know it's been since October.

He has been contacted with no response. People have posted on the facebook page with no response, messaged him with no response.

I have also contacted him about adopting an LBNA box that had no link to adopt but was very old with planter no longer active. No response.

I recently emailed Choi in the past month and received a response regarding old letterboxes to archive and he was very responsive. I can only imagine that he is dealing with something more pressing than letterboxing. While it may be discouraging, be thankful we have other outlets at this time.

Didnt get to go letterboxing it rained. I didnt have my vehicle was at the mercy of the school bus and they cancelled the trip to where the letterbox was I was going to get because it was an outside mall. :(
On the bright side we might take a family vacation to Branson next year so I'll get the boxes around Branson then hopefully. It was a fun and entertaining weekend with the kids' choir and band friends!

So I was in my local library (in Indiana) last week talking to the librarian about hiking books and I hear this voice from behind me say, “Jabber?” I turned, dumbfounded, and there was Paper Trail. I did not recognize her and I don’t know how she recognized me—good with faces I guess. We had only met face-to-face at L&B in Massachusetts, but enjoy each other’s PLBs, chatting via AQ, and sharing events. Happy happy AQ’day wherever your travels take you.

It's like a charter bus but no bathroom. The seats were actually pretty comfy. The school has had it for awhile now. The different sports and music dept use it for trips.

My favorite Harry Bliss cartoon is a man and his dog walking together on a beautiful fall day.
Caption is, "It's times like this I wish I had a tail to wag."
