Re: Back to letterboxing

Sounds great, thanks for the history. Plotting the locations is half the fun for me, and I also try to be efficient by grouping them together with others, plus some geocaches too. Not been out too much lately though, but hoping to do more soon.

2022 and the forum is back!

(After announcing this, a significant bug surfaced that prevented people registering or logging on, so I've reverted to a different form of hosting and this now seems to be working)

April 2022 - This forum is now back and hosted on Dartmoor.

Re: The future of this forum

That's a fair point, Rich - although it was already in decline when I took it over 4 or 5 years ago. Forums tend to need a critical mass of active users and I don't think that will ever return here.

I'm going to try to find someone to take it over though, so hopefully it won't disappear completely.

The future of this forum

It's now been a few months since there was any activity on this site, so I'm writing this partly to test whether things are still working - but also to see if there is much interest in this forum continuing.

Re: Is there a procol for removing decaying boxes?

Geocaches will be on the geocaching map if they're active - I'm happy to check any grid reference or coordinates if anyone's in doubt if there's one there. They're also rarely closer than 0.1miles apart. They should also be marked as 'Geocache' or have a card inside, and will always have a logbook o...

Re: The Autumn MEET 2020 is cancelled

Thanks for confirming that. Not entirely unexpected and certainly the right thing to do.

Re: Returning to the moor

Hi Frog, Welcome back to the fold. I don't do much letterboxing myself, although I do geocache quite a lot. Hopefully someone else will be along to add their view, but here's my answers to your little quiz; 1) Where are the areas we can't site boxes, it was Birch Tor in my day but I've seen mention ...

Re: Suggest an outing

Hi Thomas, I can answer a couple of bits about the access - hopefully someone else can fill in some info about box densities. The Okehampton military roads were partly closed a fair few years ago. They're still a good setting off point for Cranmere Pool, but you can only go about a mile on from the ...

A user made me aware of some issues that resulted in this error message during registration; "Field 'user_website' doesn't have a default value [1364]" I've given the database a good talking to and registrations are now active again. Apologies for this, not sure what happened - possibly an...

Re: Some Missing Boxes

There is a geocache on Hollow Tor - placed by famous letterboxer Red Roaming. https://coord.info/GC19Q6Z

It's a traditional so won't contain a stamp. Caches do often contain trinkets for kids, but don't need to.

Re: New to letterboxing

I believe the book is available to non 100 club members, the contact details are below. You certainly can geocache with just a map, I know several who started like that and one who does it. There is an addon (Geocaching map enhancements) for the caching map web page that overlays OS 25k maps and sho...
