I joined the event and now I am curious as to an easy way to see a list of ALL the Gnome boxes that get listed today. I just think it will be fun to know how many and how they are spread out across the US.

Advanced search; Gnome Day 2014; timespan: planted today, yesterday or last 7 days.

BUT, some are planted with quotation marks and some are planted under Plant a Gnome. So, all of them won't show up.

You can watch the new boxes planted widget or simple search for gnome but you'll get more than just the gnome day boxes. I noticed some of names are slightly different.

Just keep the search simple:

Advanced search
Word in title : gnome
Time span today

If they don't use gnome in the title, it won't show up. Or if they listed it on a different day.

Just got mine hid and it was like a step back in time. I found one of my first ever letterboxes on this trail 8 years ago. I remember thinking this is the longest trail I have ever walked and I remember we called others in our group to pick us up at the end and give us a ride back to our car. The trail is a nice paved trail with shade and it is 0.7 miles long. LOL today I walked it back and again until I had walked 3 miles. It was like a stroll in the park today and I just had to laugh at what I was before letterboxing.

He's probably right. I see your box listed just fine.

So I went to the page to read your clue and the tree picture is AWESOME, I am jealous that I did not find a tree like that. It looks just like a gnome is busting out of it, too cool.

you really have always taken such good pictures anyway.

Thanks. Just hope my little Gnome is safe there. It was a really busy trail today! I think the shade had something to do with it.

Since not everyone followed the admin's direction, perhaps all the planters could insert the keyword, gnomeday2014. An advance search with this keyword is a lot more efficient. Getting everyone to add this ... well, that's another challenge. I just noticed some 140 signed up for this event. That's a LOT of gnomes!

For those "Doctor Who" fans out there, here are some things to think about gnomes:

Wow! That is a neat tree. I may just have to find a tree like that to use as a reference point for a letterbox.

It is not supposed to be an event box. It is a traditional, but the name of the box should say Gnome Day 2014: ___________

The whole day (Gnome Day 2014) is an event, a virtual event.
