unexpected issues while trying to work from home

Quickly turning my laptop with webcamera away during a video conference chat with my boss and a co-worker because my guy decided to try come up from behind me to kiss me while in his boxer briefs.

Brand new boxer. I think they mean more than just the listing of the box. I think they mean the whole process.

I learned about good ways to make clues and how to present letterboxes by finding letterboxes by old timers in my area. I recommend that you find as many as you can and collect ideas that you like.

You need to go to the homepage and click on Home and Toolbox. Look at About Letterboxing, the tutorials, code of conduct.....read all this stuff.

I see you found 3 boxes. Go do some more boxing, find some more, see how people hid them. They have to be hidden well so other people can’t see them.

If you look at the information here on AQ it will help you a lot. Taking a look at the different discussion boards will give you a lot of info also.

Although your research and insight may be right, you haven't successfully guessed the theme of the box. All should become clearer starting with clue 8.

Letterboxers tend to take sides
When discussing these containers
They're messy and they're full of bugs
Grumble the complainers

But they're cheap to make, say their fans,
And perfect for small spaces
Those are the basic pros and cons
I've stated both the cases

And as for me, I use them some
And I am sorry, man,
But they were good enough for one of the best,
The great Safari Man

First things first-- Do you have a theme? A location? Would this be a one-day or weekend event? (The longer the event, the more stamps you will want.) Will the stamps be collected and returned after the event or will they be permanent plants? Plenty of us have stamps we can share or donate. As for log books, if these boxes are to be temporary plants for the event, you will not want to put a log book in any box. If someone in your geographic area has hosted an event, perhaps they have spare boxes to lend you.

Good Luck!

When is the event? What is the theme? How many stamps do you need for each trail, or is there one trail? Usually when people ask for help carving stamps, they have a place and a plan, and people who might attend will help with the carving. Is the event listed?
Those are my questions so far. I have carved a stamp or two for lots of events, but I need to know more so I have some idea of what you need.

Good news! Today will be the last number based clue. I imagine most of you have predicted that the Beetles would be clue 7. This is a little more sobering as I quickly approach 60. Enjoy.

Does Utah have a stay-at-home order?

While Utah's governor made a directive, the Salt Lake City mayor made it mandatory.

If residents of Salt Lake City violate Gov. Gary Herbert’s new “Stay Home, Stay Safe” directive, which went into effect Friday, they could be charged with a class B misdemeanor, fined up to $1,000 and spend up to six months in jail.

In jail you will not be allowed to social distance.

The state’s directive still allows Utahns to enjoy outdoor recreation and grocery shop so long as social distancing measures are practiced.

“You can still go outside, exercise at parks, hike on trails and go to grocery stores,” Mendenhall said. “Many of the businesses that we rely on every day will still be accessible.”

At least we can still letterbox.

Mendenhall also reiterated that, although her directive carries the weight of law, the city is "not out to charge you criminally if you violate this Proclamation – we just want you to comply, be safe, and keep other residents safe."

As part of the measure, the Salt Lake City International Airport will close to any passengers without a ticket. Individuals picking up or dropping off passengers must remain in their cars.

Recreational activities that promote social distancing are allowed in the parks, the measure states.

The mayor’s proclamation also limits the sale of cemetery plots to those who need to bury someone during the time the proclamation is in effect.

Well, at least we're legally permitted to die.

Summit County, which issued a stay-at-home order on Wednesday, and Salt Lake County have been hit the hardest by the virus with 221 of the state’s 480 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Salt Lake County and 110 in Summit County.

So far, two Utahns have died of the disease.

Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson said she supports the directive but asked Herbert to take stricter steps if necessary.

So, this is a summary of what is going on here. I hear that New York City and surrounding areas are the worst areas in this country. I hope that everyone everywhere is staying safe.

I live in Westchester County, the area just north of NYC. Despite what you may have "heard", the "surrounding areas" cannot be compared to the situation in NYC.

New Rochelle, which was where a cluster of cases was first discovered has through social isolation and testing actually flattened the curve in positive cases. And the lawyer who was first reported and seems to have been at the center of the cluster is recovering.

Information online.....

Out of the over 52,000 cases in the state, nearly 30,000 of them are in NYC, the more congested area. Westchester county is highly populated but in many small towns, villages, and hamlets where it is fairly easy for people to isolate. Almost everyone drives instead of taking congested public transportation.

As of two days ago, according to what I'm seeing online there have been 10 deaths in Westchester County in a population of over 900,000.

I have not looked up info on counties just north of us or Connecticut.

Well, at least we're legally permitted to die.

While many of the measures being taken may to some seem drastic and severe I feel these are what needs to be done and the American people need to respond to them in a responsible way.

According to the medical experts being interviewed this is not something that is going to magically go away in the coming weeks or months and will grow worse if people do not heed the warnings. It may even seem to "disappear" this summer and then come back in the fall.

I feel the measures in states in like Utah where there have been "only" two deaths (horrible word to use) have to be taken :::before::: the numbers rise, not after the fact. Do it now to stop the spread. That is the whole point, instead of waiting until after the fact.

It has reappeared in Wuhan, China in people who have recovered from it before. It can reinfect, so we do need to take this seriously.

Agreed.
