HEY! I resemble that remark.

May I point out that I've never actually required stitches and more than one boxer has borrowed my tongs. :P And, I was only dangling over that ravine by the back of my pants that one time. And, a lot of people can't remember what poison ivy looks like. And, if I brought dry clothes, then my husband would have known I was planning to go swimming that night. And, I can't help it if I look guilty. (That's why I leave all the talking to Artemis and the planning to Eidolon.) And, I always hold Karmakat's feet when I send her head first into a hole. And, everyone knows that it's easy to get lost on forestry service roads. And, if you yell "BEAR!" in the middle of the woods, of course I'm going to think you're looking at an actual BEAR and take off running. Why not yell, "Bunny!"

You know what? I wouldn't trade one minute of one day that I've had letterboxing with friends for anything in this world. Bring on the mishaps! I'm ready for them. :o)

This would all be much funnier if I hadn't just gotten an email from Green Tortuga that ended with "Stay out of trouble!" I can't imagine why he would say such a thing?

OH, and what I hear most on the trail is "Gimme your poking stick." and "What do you mean you forgot the bugspray?"

Love ya!

Why do I suspect there is a story behind this?

Artemis, who is never in trouble.

Stopping for lunch is a waste of daylight.

Definitely Eidolon, although daylight isn't the real factor. He just thinks eating is a waste of boxing time. I've missed lunch AND dinner on more than one boxing day, but have learned to load the back pack with trail food, and snacks for the dogs.

Artemis, who should be a lot thinner given the standard boxing regimen.

Oh, I'm sure it's not exactly like that -- just stopping for the purpose of eating is a waste of boxing time. Now this would be entirely true! There's really no reason at all you can't walk and eat at the same time-- it's not like a sandwich ties your legs from moving! And you can take off your backpack and dig out that sandwich while walking as well (or dig it out while waiting for others to stamp in a box).

I definitely have to concur with these sentiments. SWMBO likes to sleep late on her vacations, so we often don't leave a motel room until just before we have to, 11:00 or whatever. Then we go to breakfast, which always seems to take too much of the day. Once we start boxing, we can't seem to stop ourselves until after dark when we're not allowed into most parks anyway. Sometimes we continue anyway well after dark.

I have been thinking all through this thread and the talk about daylight that this was a Ga. creed. So the park is closed and it is dark; we can get a few more boxes.
Kirbert, I have been there too while boxing in GA. . "Just follow me--- by the way I am a NASCAR fan".

Isn't Eidolon also the one who thought stopping to go to the ER was a waste of daylight?

Actually, the last boxing trip that Eidolon was on that resulted in an ER trip, he was more than willing to accommodate. But is was already after dark, and as the group headed towards civilization, the injured party said, "Hey, isn't there a box in this cemetery we are passing?" She did eventually make it to the ER on her own.

But wasn't there a story about Eidolon being in great pain and needing to go to the ER but didn't want to stop letterboxing????

I seem to recall something in the shadows of my mind, but don't know the details.

Q: What's the worst injury or hardship you've suffered while tracking down a box?
A: In the middle of a boxing day, I literally fell to the ground when an (unknown) kidney stone let loose. I still hiked 2+ miles and drove for 100 miles while finishing up what turned out to be my (and Artemis's) personal record 62 find day.
