I was surprised to find two boxes within 50-100 feet of each other yesterday, each hidden by a different person

Just out of curiosity, was this location special in any way? Some people plant a letterbox at a location they want to take you to (Look at this view!) or if it is referenced off a distinctive landmark (the only sycamore tree in the park~walk 10 steps pass it...). Those are reasons why they might be "close" to each other.

It is possible that the planters are both unaware of the other's box. Or, they have agreed that it's okay to be in the proximity of each other, or, you have a poacher...(!).

I don't think there is an accepted standard ~ depends on the region. I would say (when you start planting) to always ask. Others would say there are no rules to Letterboxing and do whatever you want.

BTW, welcome! I like to find multiple boxes in an area too!

The location itself is nice (open space park in an urban area), but it was strange to me that the only two boxes in the park were so close. You had to walk up steps from the trail to one of them (which was right near the top of the steps) and then walk another 30 feet or so to the other under a log. There were lots of other potential spots, which is why is struck me as strange. If it was a series, it would have made more sense. Of course, I am coming from a geocaching background, where there is a distance rule.
BTW-I am going to plant on in that same nice park, but in a different location, because it is a nice spot.
