I know it is still possible to creat these kinds of caches, but the letterboxes, why are only some of them posted on the gc.com website. How would I create one? And the earth caches too, how would I create one of those?

Letterboxes started seperately from geocaching, and a while ago, they made it so that people can list their letterbox on geocaching.com as well.
There's more to it, but I gotta go!

Speaking of different cache types, what are project APE caches? Can they still be created?

Earthcaches are created elsewhere and then posted to geocaching.com and transferred to your name..

Project APE caches were created as a promotion for the movie The Planet of the Apes, along with the studio, of course. There is only one left in the USA - right near Seattle and the coming Geowoodstock.

say I wanted to create a letterbox, would I do that on the letterboxing website? Then transfer it to gc.com?

When we created our Letterbox caches we made them work for the gc.com guidelines and then cross posted one of them on the letterboxing site. We have NEVER had a visit from the folks who supposedly letterbox, but we have had numerous visits from the geocachers.

I have a few letterboxs and more to come, I like to tie in a theme to a cache, history, location, classic tv show, you name it.. So you want to do lets say a "BEAR" themed cache. You could have bear swag, bear puzzle but with a letterbox you could carve a bear stamp or buy a pre made one.
It's just that easy...Letterbox Hybrids only need a stamp, letterbox direction are nice as well. None of my letterboxes have been on the letterbox site.

Funny I made a tribute to the APE caches and it's a letterbos hybrid.. LOL

In the tradition of the type of cache yes. Otherwise you would simply make the cache a traditional and leave it at that.
