Read Thread: Experienced boxers?

by RocklunProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: Letterbox Chatter
So Southpaw and I decided to look for an older series today. We were excited to find that one of the boxes contained a bonus clue. I took a picture of the clue so we could leave it in the box. The clue said to find a rock with a two-sister tree across...

The point of this story is to let newer boxers know that even relatively experienced boxers make really silly mistakes frequently sometimes!! Or maybe it's just us who do these things and I've now exposed us for the dopes we are. D'OH!!!!

two-sister tree We've found plenty of boxes, but I've wondered about this terminology, which we've not come across in the clues we've had. Chalk it up to regional differences - we have a lot of dry dirt trails bordered by scrub brush and cacti, and wou...

One tree with two trunks that start at or very close to the ground. We have lots of multi-sister trees in New England.

Chalk it up to regional differences We went to an event a few weeks ago, about 3.5 hrs from home, where they said 2 from 1 or 5 from 1. I had never heard it called that before. It took us a minute but we figured it out.

Is a "two-sister tree" two similar trees side by side, or would this be one tree, having two trunks sprouting from the same base? Most of our tree species in the Northeast, if logged, will resprout with multiple stems. Two and three trunks is very comm...

When I rehid the box and stood up, a light bulb went off as I looked at our surroundings. The "bonus box" we just found was the box we had found only 15 minutes earlier. D'oh!! “Your Honor, let the record show that the witness made the drinky-drinky mo...

This is why Teacup and my motto is "What happens in the Team Mudcup Mobile STAYS in the Team Mudcup Mobile." Oh, the stories.... ;)

The point of this story is to let newer boxers know that even relatively experienced boxers make really silly mistakes frequently sometimes!! :^) Yup, that we do! When I do something dumb I always say "What happens on the trail stays on the trail"....

Lol! That's the smart thing to do, Mud! Southpaw and I feel that the best way we can contribute to the letterboxing community is to make every one else feel better about their own mistakes, since their mistakes probably aren't as goofy as ours! ;^)

Oh I have done the same thing...going on about planters that don't know north from south etc when the box isn't there and then seeing that all important piece of clue that you didn't notice before LOL!!

This is just like AA Milne's story of Tigger and Roo [or was it Pooh?] searching for Heffalumps! They follow their own footprints.

HAHAHAHA!! That wins "funniest letterboxing story I've heard"!!! You know what's sad, WW? The only thing in my story that wasn't quite accurate was how long it took before I read the compass bearing correctly. It was actually more like 20 minutes, but...

We have some boxes here that use 2:1. I was really confused until I saw that all of her clues used that and figured out what it meant.

a light bulb went off Isn't it interesting how a light bulb "going on" and "going off" mean the same thing?

The "bonus box" we just found was the box we had found only 15 minutes earlier. D'oh! Ok I'll ask, is it one find or two? ;-) Larry

Well, we did find it twice, Larry... ;^)

Sometimes I help out Open Space when she is planting for events. For one event, we spent the day hiding boxes, then camped. The next day we went back out to tackle the rest. As we were walking on the trails, she pointed to a letterbox, clearly visib...

You could, in fact, log two finds on it. AQ would only count one, but it'd still be pretty funny to see two find logs from the same person on the same day!

...it was a box we had planted together just the day before, not realizing it could be seen from an adjacent trail. This is more likely than you'd think. Land managers like to cram as many miles of walking trails into their lands as possible, so they...
