Stone Mountain can be totally overwhelming,

I've been doing maintenance on some of mine there and pulling some that have served their purpose and should be retired. I might just go ahead and pull all mine that are older than 2 years (um, yeah that's most - LOL). I would hazard to guess that the locals have most of the old ones and new boxers aren't going to bother with how overwhelming the park is anyway.

LOL! No worries - I'm not moving very fast at my goals!!

I think you may be one of the few newer local boxers at the mountain - though I could be wrong about that. Good luck on your continued searches!

My thoughts exactly. I'm going to slowly start removing my old box has no one's found in years... If no one is looking for them then their litter in the woods...

So agree! But what to do with the abandoned boxes?? I'm thinking there are only a few of the old, first ones (thinking Ryan's and Sun Over Stone) that should remain.

I can think of more than a few that should stay. Like All of the remaining Granny and Paw Paw boxes, plus the tributes to them. Those boxes are fascinating even if you never met Granny and PawPaw.

And all the boxes that require a boat- atleast one more summer, as a favour to me please!

If anybody wants to hook me up with the fox hunting clues I would love a chance to look for them before they get cleaned up.

Yep...especially now that Tumbling Waters is gone. Although, I think the tribute boxes to Granny and Paw Paw should remain.

We have not found many Stone Mountain boxes and would be happy to slowly find any old ones people leave out. We are not super fast high volume boxers so can’t guarantee we would do that soon, but often like to go out and find a few boxes. Since there are not many new ones being added to the Atlanta area, we would be grateful for any old ones people chose to leave around.

It's not like I'm planning a major trip out there to do that. Just as I get by them. The Indian ridge series is officially on the clock! LOL

Which is totally caved in and disintegrated by now right?
Did you check the stump ball a little bit further up the hill?
I remember doing that with someone maybe eidolon or even Pawpaw...the last time I went to the box with him.
Or maybe I'm remembering a tribute box planted off that box?

Not for TW. You must be thinking about the tribute box. But if you happen to stroll by please take a look. Miss you my friend!

I greatly appreciate your planting and have enjoyed the one of yours we have found so far. Right now it is hard for us to get to the southeast area of Atlanta too often since we have a three year old (We live in the northwest Atlanta area). When we started boxing, it was not unusual to see 5-10 new boxes planted in the Atlanta area in one week by a variety of planters all over the Atlanta area. You
are planting plenty. There are just way fewer people in general planting, especially near where we are.

It would be interesting to read the history on how the English dealt with old boxes considering they've been doing it for Generations.
