I haven't seen Wanda & Pete's signture stamp in years. They draw in pine tree, etc., even color it sometimes. And they always write a story.

Lost a full logbook once. It had 250 stamps in it. I had just filled it up. I had left it on a retaining wall next to the trail. Looked for about 2 hours for it.

When I travel by air, with a packed carry-on, I just bring sig stamp impressions on stickers, way more than I think I will use. And a small ‘travel’ logbook. Less to lose in the confusion!

You have a cute sig stamp, sorry you lost it!

I have never seen any sig stamp for them, but they are about and reply to PMs at least... I had the opportunity to find one of their hides... just recently that had never been found... mostly due to wind blown debris covering it more than planned.

They do have a problem in that many of their listings are broken due to 'losing' their storage server where the clues exist... so... a lot harder to find... I had spotted the listing way back when it worked and was looking for another missing one that went away by another hider... also never found... but that one is likely toast by now... but I'm trying... so I knew there was a listing but was in unknown status so I had to find it and request a text of the clue... and they sent it to me, and I logged it...

I see they last logged in here yesterday... so they might see all this and comment or not... seem like nice people. though... I have to go look for some others in the area that i had to get info on... might get that done later this summer, if winter quits... there was snow on the ground two days back and more falling... ha.

I was in a cemetery in NH and took out my sig stamp. I then moved to a better stamping location and realized somewhere between the headstone and my new spot I lost my sig stamp. Looked and looked and never found it. Lost in the leaves.

Which cemetery?
Just in case I happen to be in the area and feel like disturbing more than the peace.

I lost mine at an event. I had just recarved it, too, unless I'm lying. After slogging uphill to a rather famous and very old, historic box, I oxymoronically discovered it missing. I couldn't stamp in and was bummed about it. Later, I ran across it on the trail. I dragged Open Space back up there to do it right, of course. She's the best.

It was one of the forgotton cemeterys that Bubaloo planted near Wakeda. I just remember now that the box was under a tall spire style stone and we walked a couple stones away from that ( to the right, facing back of stone). It was several years ago .

Ah, I think I know the one you mean.
I was there during the event.
Maybe it's lost in the same place as the box that should have been there.
