Any questions? And if it fills up and there's more interest - I'll start a second group.

Shelter Island Yachts Box

On Saturday, August 31, 2019, I will be replanting my Shelter Island Yachts letterbox. The original box was one of my first plants and first in New York in August 2009 and although the stamp was very nice, it was just a store-bought... I pulled the original box in January, for a RubberMaid container it held up nice but just wasn't very water resistant and the 2 freezer bags were pretty well done. The stamp and book were were damp and moldy.

So... I'm self-promoting my carves to be found and I kind of have spoiled what this stamp looks like, but Shelter Island (between Montauk and Orient Points on Long Island for those that don't know) is such a beautiful place to visit with lots of really nice things to do and see and not far from the Hamptons either. One third of the island is part of the Nature Conservancy with many trails and views and a very old family cemetery... but that isn't where the stamp is...!

Here is the link, in case you might want to visit:

You may wonder why I am posting this in the NJ board but I lived in NJ for most of my life and started to letterbox in NJ and I know many people from NJ visit Shelter Island NY!!! There is a section of the island called the Montclair Colony that was settled by many people from Montclair, where I started to box and lived there for 6+ years.

Personally, I don’t use long ago “last found” dates as a prerequisite for my searches.

Neither do I. But on the other hand I don’t dismiss a box because of it. And I think far too many people do. But then that may leave more old boxes safe and sound for me and others who want them. HEHHEHHEH

I think there’s a correlation to the location

Valid point. But that correlation wasn’t made in the statement I responded to. :)

I recently found a box on my second try - the first try was 5 years ago with no luck. This time, I brought a friend who viewed the clue just differently enough to make the box findable. This isn't always the case, but sometimes.....

I've heard that there is a day where the site is opened up so that people can record restricted boxes that they've happened to find. When would that be?

No cutoff for us, either. We've found boxes with 8, 10, even 14 years in between finds for a whole host of reasons. If the area's pretty remote, it's typically more likely the box is still there somewhere. Even a couple of attempts won't discourage us for bringing the clues along with us on this type of hunt. We've also found that there's a significant correlation between length of hike and frequency of finds, so a lack of a recent find date on longer hikes would not bother us. We enjoy the added challenge of finding an older box.

That’s very cool. It’s just so weird how people can see it differently. And some clues can be interpreted in such different ways.

I have 2 events listed on 10/12/19. Both are showing start and end times on 12:00 AM and I cannot get the times to set differently -- every time I put in the correct times and save the event, it reverts back to 12:00 AM. This doesn't seem to be an issue on other events I am looking at... what am I doing wrong?

You aren't doing anything wrong... just a bug in the code that I introduced while fixing a different bug in the code.

Sorry about that! It should be fixed now. Give it another whirl! =)

Then they'll keep trying to scam you at your old address. At least until the next hack happens.... (And there will be more!)

Damnit, would you people stop discussing this and send me the bitcoin already?!?

It was great to see folks again and I sure enjoyed my tour of the cemetery.
I'm so glad I bought a new set of colored markers; phew!!! Thanks to ALL the organizers, carvers and attendees for making Woodstock 50 fun. So glad the rain held off also.
