      Clues:
      Title : "Gingko".
      Placed 11-17-03 by Salamander.
      Location: Near Elm Grove, Pike Co., Ohio.
      Difficulty: Easy.

      This letterbox is inspired by one of autumn's prettiest trees. The Gingko's fan-shaped leaves turn a brilliant yellow in the fall. However, the female Gingko produces a small fruit which emits one of the nastiest odors in the natural world. As with many things in life, sometimes you "just have to take the bitter with the better".

      CLUES: Go to the rest area on Route 32 near Elm Grove. Start at the " Windhover" sculpture near the restrooms building. Standing four feet to the south of the sculpture, take a compass reading of 184 degrees. Go 34 paces at this heading to a metal object. Then go 16 paces @ 165 degrees to a tree against a fence. The box is hidden under a rock and some bark where the tree has grown into the fencing.

        Clues:
        Beaver, Ohio
        Pike County

        Bring ink pad and pen.

        In July of 1863, Confederate Cavalry General John Hunt Morgan lead more than 2,500 of his troopers on a daring raid through Ohio. Morgan's men left behind them an interesting account of one of the most daring raid's of the American Civil War (Not to mention some of the finest thoroughbred horses) Today, all along the original Morgan's Raid route, there are rich stories of what took place in each particular location. Some instances during the raid were quite comical, while other cases were tragic reminders that we were at war.

        On Thursday July 16, 1863 Morgan�s men rode into the small village of Beaver. With a little time on their hands, the men looked up the local blacksmith and asked him to replace some shoes on the raider�s horses. No doubt in fear of his life, the blacksmith complied with the request. When finished with his work, he was shocked to find out the Confederates wanted to pay him. While the rebel cannons were parked in town, a curious young boy stuck his head in one of the barrels, getting it caught. With the Yankees, no doubt closing in on their location, the Rebels carefully dislodged the young boys head from the barrel and left town.



        Directions: Take OH Rte. 335 north from OH. 32 approx. 2 miles to Beaver. Find Beaver Union Cemetery.

        Clues: Once in the cemetery, find the Davis mausoleum. At the south east corner of the mausoleum take a compass reading of 150 � and walk 8 paces to a large cedar with trunks. Look between the trunks and look high. Please re-hide well. Email me if you find.

          Bring ink pad and pen.

          Caution: An easy find with a couple of steep banks to walk.

          Officially known as Ohio�s Most Perfect Tree. Don�t know who made this declaration or what even makes a tree perfect. But it�s well worth the drive. This tree is huge.

          Directions: On OH Rt.-335, just 3 -1/2 miles south of where Rt.335 intersects OH Rt.-32. Look for the sign and the tree. There is a small pull over on the two lane windy road.

          Clues: Stand below the tree at the bottom of the bank. (Northeast of the tree) Take a compass reading of 68� and proceed 8 paces across the ditch to a broken over pine tree. Look under the trunk near the broken base of the tree. Please re-hide well. Email me if you find.

            Clues:
            Un4gettable Toy Series � Rocky

            Every child has their favorite toy however some toys manage to span the generations and delight grandchildren as much as they did their grandparents. We hope to recapture the joy of these enduring toys in our Un4gettable Toy Series. The series will include 10 boxes. Each box will contain a code number as well as the stamp. Once you find all 10 boxes and collect the codes, send an email to us at bigguy9210@... and we will mail you a bonus postal box with a special grand finale stamp to end the series. To keep in the spirit of childhood, as we place the boxes each clue will begin with something children enjoy playing or doing. We hope you have fun collecting these boxes and relive fond childhood memories as you find the toys along the way!



            Rocky

            This toy will have you going back and forth, up and down, but never leaving home. Go to Canal Park in Waverly, OH and find the shelterhouse nearest the playground. Stand in the center of the west door of the shelterhouse and take a reading of 280�. Go 13 paces (1 pace = 2 steps) and you�ll find Rocky hiding in a crevice in the stone wall behind some small stones and a brick. As always, be discrete � this is a busy place.

                      Placed by: Fischels
                      Clues:
                      This letter box is located in Lake White State Park which is at the junction of SR 551 and SR 104 outside Waverly, Ohio.

                      Go to Lake White State Park. You will need to start at the upper shelter house (you can park there, or walk up to it from the lower parking lot).

                      From the shelter house take a rough bearing of 210 and follow the road. This road will curve to the left and you will have a choice to go left or right. Go to the right.

                      As you walk, the road will continue to curve to the right. You will walk by an outdoor fireplace and the road will continue into the woods.

                      Once into the woods, continue to follow this old asphalt road as it goes uphill and then levels out. You will see a number of large and small rock outcroppings on the left. Go approximately 150 paces (1 pace = 2 steps)to the second very large (3 ft in diameter) oak tree on the right side of the road. What you are seeking is on the left side of the road at roughly ground level, in a hollow, under a rock outcropping behind a rock covered in leaves.

                      Please cover the box well when you place it back.
