We have our logbook and signature stamp for me and my husband and our three year old's signature stamp. Markers, pens, and a compass. We need to get some ink pads. For our three year old we have snacks, change of clothes and usually an extra toy that g...

Yes-all of this stuff, plus, I carry HH's that I need to move along, and extra logbooks, plastic ziploc bags, and a few cammo pouches in case a box I find needs some first aid. I always try to take care of every box I find as if it were my own <3

I assume you tell the planter you replaced their stamp? Since that affects the attributes of the stamp. It's no longer a hand carved stamp and probably no longer reflects the theme of the box if there was one. I've actually never known anyone to do thi...

It's something you put in place of the actual box while you're logging in in case a boxer comes up right behind you. I just gotta open this can of worms and ask............Could you explain this? Cuz in all the years I've been boxing I have never heard...

Do you mean that you have a stand-in that you temporarily put in place of the letterbox while you whisk away that box you found to do your stamping and logging? Like a seat holder of sorts or a ball marker on a golf green? Interesting if that is the ca...

We've missed boxes that were out being stamped into in the past. Really? Maybe at an event? I'm trying to think if this ever happened when we were boxing in Andover but can't recall.

Even if that were the case, (Which sounds like it is) I wouldn't want to have any stamp put in its place just so I can say that I found it- I'd rather come back another day. Would it technically count as "found" if you found the box but the stamp that...

This has happened in the busier locations where a stamping boxer would try to hide from the general public. Several times in ME around the Portland area for us. But a little token that said "this box is currently being stamp in and will be back shortly...

Would it technically count as "found" if you found the box but the stamp that was meant to be there wasn't? If there's no stamp in the box, I don't count it as a find. I will count mostly crumbled stamps (*#^$ MasterCarve!) as well as stamps completel...

Even if that were the case, (Which sounds like it is) I wouldn't want to have any stamp put in its place just so I can say that I found it- I'd rather come back another day. This is exactly what it is for (as mentioned, like a "Seat Holder"). But the...

Let me throw this wrench in the program-since we're on the subject of placeholder stamps why not put a cute little place holder card in there instead? You know the ones where they have them hanging on the door at restaurants or businesses saying be ba...
by Uncorny AcornsProfileContactLogbookNote

I can't imagine a circumstance where I'd ever use a placeholder stamp, but I guess there must be one? If you came upon an extra stamp that explained you found the right spot but the box was in use; wouldn't you want that stamp (and maybe an exchange as...

It's something you put in place of the actual box while you're logging in in case a boxer comes up right behind you. Personally, I think this situation could offer better consolation with a cold beer. It's the least you could do. But since that isn't...

This was in conversation way back when I was into boxing like six or seven years ago(I had to take a short break)...at the time, you would put something, like a little flat wooden animal(something you'd find at Walmart), a box, or a note of some sort.....

I have to get better at helping other boxes too. I have a 9,7, 6, and 2 year old we drag along with us. I usually have all of their individual siggy stamps and log books in a bag that is attached to the carrier we have the two year old in. And in the...

a few cammo pouches in case a box I find needs some first aid. Do you mean like "homemade" from duct tape? That is a great idea and they don't take up much room.
by Trouble BugProfileContactLogbookNote

I've been boxing in a really busy area a few times and I've not found a box, but when I've gone to log in the attempt, I've seen that someone has found it the same day I've missed it. I assumed that the person who found the box had it while I was look...

Are you talking about serious hiking? How long are you usually away from the car? I generally leave food and water in the car. I carry 3 tissues, though, which can double as TP. But I'm usually only out for 20-90 minutes. Sometimes I do carry a sm...

Did I mention toilet paper. Diabetics always have to tinkle. Who needs toilet paper? (I'm still holding a grudge against her after her security guards kicked us off the stones on her property where there were letterboxes hidden before she moved there.)

Oh My Goodness! I almost spit my drink out of my mouth! This is actually a little inside joke between my husband and I. On a side note...who are you talking about? Are you talking about TS?

On a side note...who are you talking about? Are you talking about TS? Yep. She owns a house in RI on a public beach. We didn't realize we were trespassing until we got yelled at.

I have seen these used to VERY good effect at events Never seen it used on the trail or at events. At any event I've been to, either no one is coming right behind you or they are standing politely a few feet away waiting for you to finish stamping in....
