You know Ryan, quite frankly I have no idea. They call everything around here Manila. Let me get back to you on that one after I do a little research.

You know, the City IS Tagaytay City, which we have listed as the State. Here is the full address:
Calamba Road, BGY Iruhin Central Tagaytay City

Your advice would be appreciated on how to make this not a mystery

We are going to Grand Cayman in 3 weeks and plan on planting one there. I dont know how to add an international box, I was going to ask for help when i actually got it planted and had written clues. I dont see it in the list of countries though and I suspect thats where i need to begin.

You're probably looking under the wrong name. Check for "Cayman Islands". The country code used on Atlas Quest is CY. =)

Ryan -

I fixed this by the way, just now. I bow down to wikipedia, where yesterday I looked up GG Allin's country CD, and today I found the exact location of Taal volcano.

By the way, it is very rare that the owner of a free website lends this much assistance and is involved on a level that you are. I will be buying a premiuim membership as soon as I return from the Philippines in two weeks. Thanks for everything!

Hey Looky there its right there where it should be. Is everything else the same to add it as a plant? Do I follow the same directions?

Make sure you have the city right, I don't know about the Cayman's, but Philippines is tricky.

Pretty much. City names can sometimes be tricky for international destinations since the locals might call it a different name than us English folks do. Usually, I tried to support our English-version of the city names rather than local names if I could, but I wasn't always able to distinguish between the two. There are aren't a whole lot of "cities" where you're going, so I think AQ only supports all of about a dozen or so for that country!

And for certain countries where I don't expect a lot of letterboxing activities (Iran, anyone?), I deliberately did not add all of the cities I found information for to help keep the database small and fast. No sense supporting cities that will likely never get used. So I only supported the largest few hundreds towns and ignored the rest. Consequently, for some countries, if a certain city isn't supported, I can add it manually as needed. All English-speaking countries and major tourist traps I supported every city I could find information about. It's the non-English-speaking countries and places where tourists rarely go that don't get as much support.

Mr. Yuk,

Is this box still there? I noticed someone attempted to find it last month. I'll be traveling to the Philippines soon and would like to find it!

I sent you a private message. That attempt was not really an attempt. Get back to me if you need anything.
