Personally, I do not go out of my way to look for boxes in commercial businesses or libraries unless I know that the staff is aware of the box. I did not look at the clues to your boxes to see if that it the case but it is one thing to consider.

I will go after a box if it is planted outside a business, though.

I didn't know if it was somehow offensive to people that we are referencing drinking

Most definitely not. A few years back hartwolfzell started Plant a Beer Day to encourage folks to plant at or near a brewery. The event occurs in April and is currently hosted by me and Helms' Flying Adventure.

Can anyone point me to problems with our box postings that would prevent people from wanting to go?

As for me, if I were near Portland, I'd definitely add those boxes to my list to find as I clearly love a good box and beer and also dinosaurs.

Something else to consider, in a place like the PNW, many letterboxers will get their hiking done during the summer when the weather is good and save boxes that are inside or drive-bys for the rainy winter months. Or at least, I do that. :-)

Definitely not due to drinking. Pub crawls have a long standing tradition in boxing in some parts of the country. Boxing overall has slowed down in the Portland area, so I think some people have gotten out of the habit of looking for new boxes. But, they are on my list as soon as the beginning of the school year crazies settle down some!

Amanda has a great point, as does Warrior Woman. I too have boxes out there that are over a year old with no finds.
