Read Thread: It's True!

My thoughts too. I mean, I plant sometimes without logbooks. A magnet LB here, a vacation plant there, etc. To my knowledge the logbook requirement is geocaching-only as the cache swag is not the cache, but the logbook is. And with LB, the bare minimu...

... Nothing. I was being sarcastic. (Though, technically, you're supposed to have one.) I think I'm deeper in the thread than you are, too.

... No, I wasn't being serious. Just doin' some wishful thinking. :) That if they disappeared from atlasquest, folks might stop planting them. One of the things that the 4 of us really likes is looking thru the logbooks. If the clues say there's...

Then you'll appreciate my favorite logbook ever. No spoilers, promise.

... That is indeed the best logbook ever. Love it! Reminds me of some of the thru-hiking journals we've read in our AT younger days. My cousins & I have planted a lot of boxes using LbNA thru the years, & have always been happy when we've retired th...

That is so awesome! ...and I think I need to steal that idea. Especially since I'm a teacher. AND two of my students are now letterboxing. I also think hiking the AT sounds awesome. AT least while I'm still on the couch.

No logbook because the box is a magnet-backed stamp on the underside of a mailbox is OK. No logbook just because you didn't feel like spending the 79 cents for a logbook is not.

... OKaaaay. :) And what do we do with the lazy cheap boxer who makes a "magnet" box just BECAUSE they won't have to 1. buy a logbook; 2. bother being sure they have a waterproof container to protect said logbook; 3. bother finding a location suitabl...

... Some people would like to skip boxes with no log book. Should an attribute be added that indicates "no logbook"? Right now it would have to be part of the description of the box in the clue. If it is an attribute then people could include or exc...

... Here in MA, we have a couple of months where searching for traditional boxes can be extremely difficult, due to snow cover. To give folks something to find, I've planted some winter-friendly boxes that are film canisters hanging on trees. I chose n...

... It's a lot more work and planning to hide snow-friendly boxes like yours located well down a hiking trail than it is to plant letterboxes with logbooks that are drivebys or quick strolls. It's not easy. Thanks for planting!

Also here in MA (well, New England), we also have a comparatively active letterboxing community. I've often wondered if it's because we don't get persnickety about our rules and, frankly, are friendlier for it. No logbook? No problem, we're being bi...

Well THIS thread has certainly garnered some interesting observations!!! My 2cents, which I'm sure in 2019 standards is probably 25 or 50 cents by now... Should W&P find one of my boxes? That's nice... Should no one find any of my boxes? Oh well... S...

... The box should have a logbook anyway. If the finder doesn't wanna bother with stamping in for whatever reason, fine.

... lol, in reality you really can't do that in Connecticut because there are so many rocks. There may be a lot of boxes, but there are a zillion more places to hide them.

... That's how I run my Letterboxers Egg Hunt every year. You have the option of going Dartmoor style with no clues at all, or you can have cryptic clues written by Not A Lone Wolf Anymore for help. Warrior Woman likes to keep it fun

... Nono, you're only lazy & cheap on the days you plant boxes with no logbooks. Otherwise you're a workaholic spendthrift.

... Does that mean that if you plant a 15 box series you're going to put a logbook in all 15 boxes??
by Early RisersProfileContactLogbookNote

... Even I'm willing to draw the line on that one. :) On the other hand, when boxing first came to Illinois, that was how it was done. Tho the most I remember in a series was 10 boxes. Logbook in every one. GrayFamily5 again who made that series...

... It was suggested that boxes without logbooks be identified with an icon for the purists to avoid. Conversly, should series with a logbook in every box be identified so that the sane can avoid them?

ALL of the stamps I found were store bought. very disappointing. My experience was that the clues were difficult to follow and boxes were often missing. I did charity walks, which seems to be the way you can get your 100 stamps to get "real" clues....

... I planted a 12-box series and put a logbook in all 12 boxes. At first I had only 2-4 out at a time, in a rotation. Now I have them all out, year round. I left all of the logbooks in all 12 boxes.

... Now that I think about it, when I find a box without a logbook (and it's not part of a series), I tend to assume it used to have a logbook, but the logbook became soaked and was removed by someone. Happens all the time.
by MissMoonProfileContactLogbookNote

... Good one. Nah, I'll just stamp in the first, middle, and last. And the middle depends on how many boxes in the series. :) Works for me.

Damn. Pretty sure I've been in every Dead Horses thread since the dawn of time. Frankly, I thought it would happen sooner.

I’ve done this with my indoor holiday events. Finding the boxes were so much more difficult and participants sometimes asked for clues. They have all been good sports and rewarded with top notch carves from around the country. In a nutshell, I create a...
