And this is probably a good reason why some strip boxes don't last. Maybe avoid MGM properties?

wow. No wonder Vegas has no allure for Skootch and I.

I really like planting on the Strip though I don't expect boxes to survive necessarily. I kind of like the rush of hiding/planting where some stealth is required. I assume I am being watched while in Vegas. Not every box is for everyone. BTW...Aria is a great find ;)

Yes, I haven't been actively boxing for a while now. I must get down there!

I hid a letterbox in the MGM Grand parking garage; it went missing almost immediately. Then I hid another inside the casino which lasted a year and a half. Due to the remodeling, it was rescued once and then re-hidden, only to be lost when the casino did away with all pay phones. I will try that one again since I love the stamp image. I love a challenge! For the present, my two boxes in Vegas are located off the strip.

I hear London is like that, too.

Doesn't bother me, just as it doesn't bother many folks. If you're not committing a crime, it's not a problem. If you're a victim of a crime, it may help you.

I was one of the lucky ones who got to the pay phone before it was removed!

Thanks for the information. Little Tumbler and I just bought our Vegas tickets last week but we won't be there until June for her Gymnastics Nationals- I will keep checking to see what boxes survive until then!
