What ever happened to the secret sign??
Board: Stupider Questions About Letterboxing

A few weeks ago, someone started a thread on how to ID a fellow LB'er. I think the proposal on the table was to ask the question "which way is North?" And the counter sign was "Straight up" while pointing to the sky. Was that whole thing ever resolved?

We have been here in CO for the week and have encounted folks on trails that perhaps could be LB'ers, and I have asked "Which way North" and they usually point to North with the hand/arm parallel to the horizon instead of straight up.
So what was the final resolution?

Check out CapeCodLetterboxer's new HH traveller listed here on AQ (under Travellers) and also LBNA (under regular boxes, I think). They have been started here on Cape Cod so it may take a while to make it out your way. She did a really nice job!

Well Shucks! Guess I missed that one entirely. Thanks for the update and it is a neat idea, plus a lot of work on your part.

Even though I was way off track on "Which way is North", it could certainly serve as a "sign -counter sign" authentication for fellow LBers. I have asked folks on the trail and none have responded "correctly" as of yet. However, it would seem that anyone that has read this board and related threads would respond with "Nort is UP!" So I will continue to try that and see what happens.
Just in case, anyone know where I can get a deal on bail money?
