Burden of proof is on wassa...he knows where I live and can show me in person, otherwise it is simply claims of a deranged moose ;)

Very strange. I Clicked on Wassa's link and I got a you tube of a very lonely seagull letterbox that makes my head hurt just seeing it. cannot imagine solving it. LOL Then in the next post I
Clicked on Dizzys link which appears to be the same link and it takes me to a series planted by Green Tortuga box number 1.

Hmmm.... weird

Who would guess that a bunch of us sit around reading each other's posts snorting to ourselves as we read them and hitting the funny button when we haven't even met most of these folks - but we feel like we know them. And we should be doing something productive!

I completely agree :) I do not doubt Wassa has found the Lonely Seagull (my posts have truly been in jest) and I know that I have not yet (without really any trying). But, I am willing to do a little wager. I am guessing I will solve Lonely Seagull (and hopefully find it if I can make a trip to its location) before Wassa solves this one....

I am willing to carve any stamp image he chooses for me if I lose the bet or am open to some other type of wager. Hmmm, what should my prize be if I should win? ...

Jeff *who really doesn't have a lot of time to solve the mysteries, but will do so if Wassa will* ;)

No information as to which clue they wanted.

Then why assume it's your WOM clue?
P count the WOM box and then respond, "Which of my boxes are you referring to?"

I've had requests just like this. I either ignore them or write back asking for further information like what box are they referring to. 9 times out of 10 they never respond to that email.

You two are making my night. As I sit here in the full throws of pneumonia, I come upon this and went from complete misery to utter glee.

Thank you!!!

Wassa, I have not solved it - but will certainly put energy into doing so now! As for your challenge - I hope you solve that one as it seems a doozy that needs some attention!!!

I've gotten something similar -- someone asking for how to decrypt an encrypted clue. They asked me and everyone who had logged it. They didn't have any finds for any of my other boxes (which you would need in order to decrypt the clue).

I was with Goofy Girl at the time, so she has the same stats for yesterday. :) Except one of the boxes I found was hers, so I guess she doesn't have the same finds. We had fun! It was a long day, though, because she had a 3-1/2 hour drive and I had a 2 hour drive to get to our destination. I slept like a rock last night, though.

Does it rub off?

Depends... if I'm in full-out "boxing mode" and you happen to be in my vicinity when it happens, I'll grab you and drag you with me. I usually leave as early as possible and box until I'm about ready to collapse (which is longer if the weather isn't so hot).

LOL! It was a newly-hatched egg that wanted the info :) I'm pretty sure that you started a while before we did!

I don't mind if seasoned boxers ask for info as I'm more than happy to give hints ;)

That particular box uses a keyword based cipher and the keyword is "in the wild".
