Read Thread: Finding new letterboxers/looking for a bargain
I think there is no question that there are some in letterboxing who are elitists - and elite things are, well, elite. Perhaps Geocaching has a greater following than letterboxing because they aren't elite. No one says you have to find the stamps that...
I've encountered wasps/bees in guardrails on multiple occasions. About a third of the time there seems to be a nest, old empty one, or a geocache. Btw, we all randomly check guard rails at interesting locations right?
...neologisms with "scare quotes". What the heck are "scare quotes" then I Googled it The Chicago Manual of Style says: Quotation marks are often used to alert readers that a term is used in a nonstandard (or slang), ironic, or other special sense. Nic...
I'm generally wary of light poles because where there's a light pole, there might be a camera, where's there's a camera, there might be someone watching who just might wonder what's going on.
Just for the sake of the conversation - I have been boxing for close to 20 years. I just didn't come to AQ until this summer. Really, no need to be snarky. It was just a simple thought.
i think the original post was a off season proxy for one of wassa's april fools jokes and you were all taken in by it
Below is my initial response https://www.atlasquest.com/boards/message.php?msgId=968707 Now that you've revealed that you have been boxing for almost 20 years your original post is pure troll or a gag. 30 commercial stamp light post boxes in parking l...
Really, no need to be snarky. It's not being snarky to express the opinion that I don't feel it's necessary or a good idea to dummy down boxing in order to entice not particularly interested people into doing it. It's not snarky to point out that your...
I’m predicting the much-maligned newbie smackdown, as most of us have had this very lament and postulated to the boards all kinds of ways to improve the hobby. You are in very good company. This is the first time I’ve seen someone post every, single l...
Btw, we all randomly check guard rails at interesting locations right? Oh, man. That was you? Sorry about the puddle.
Oh, man. That was you? Sorry about the puddle. By “puddle”, you mean ‘brown spot’? Heathen!
I hung out at letterboxing.org for a really long time - until I found it got way out of date, and I took about a five year hiatus while my mom was declining due to dementia. I mean, really, I have no reason to lie about that or any of it. I used a diff...
If it's an easy find, make it an interesting place to find it. If the place isn't as interesting, make it a challenge to find. I can do that, but I don't think that the local boxers would appreciate me planting in thorny bushes and trees, up in a tree,...
We have to further dumb down a hobby that at its basic level is essentially reading while walking? Don't you mean reading ***and*** thinking while walking?
You seem super defensive of your right to be cranky. Not sure why. If you want to be cranky, then knock yourself out. There is a lot of that going on here. Learn to enjoy the snark. It can be entertaining.
There is a lot of that going on here. Learn to enjoy the snark. It can be entertaining. Yes, you can be.
Learn to enjoy the snark. It can be entertaining. Yes, you can be. Who? Me?
Don't you mean reading ***and*** thinking while walking? Too many things! Pop!
I deleted the last six-or-so posts to this board. This thread was getting a little nasty. I'm not moving it to the dead lemurs board--yet--but just a reminder that personal attacks against others are not appropriate. Disagreeing opinions are fine, but...
I thought the horse was dead, the lemurs were just flung.
Disagreeing opinions are fine, but keep it civil. Don't make me stop this car!
Oh, wow, the dead lemurs board! It's been an awfully long time since anyone got excited enough about anything boxing related to have a thread even considered to be moved there. Ah, the good old days... ;)
I was just reminiscing about RogueOne. Warrior Woman remembers
OMG!!!!!! Don't even open up that can or worms again!!!
It *had* started down the road to facebutt level discussions. I call that the merry go round stage......round and round and going no place fast. Although Ryan may soon have to find another animal. https://psmag.com/environment/what-killed-these-lemurs
Although Ryan may soon have to find another animal. https://psmag.com/environment/what-killed-these-lemurs Dang, did we do that!?!
Dang, did we do that!?! Did I do that?
Dear Lord, I wasn't going to jump in but now I am. This has been my montra as some of my closest friends know. Some of my VERY best letterboxing experiences have been where a box was missing or one was where someone carved a simple x In the old PZ-Cut....
Totally agree, Trailtracker. And when we find enough time, we will be back to Hocking Hills to look for a number of older boxes, unknown and unvisited for a long time. The experience is totally worth it.
Very well stated Trailtracker… you get a lot more out of letter boxing experiences than just the stamps…yes and there is something for everyone! WW52
