Compass needed

Enter Park, take a left to cross bridge; take left to soccer fields, park in lot on left near the yellow gates.

Pass the gates, which are most likely closed.
At first intersection, follow the road sign that is posted at the intersection.
At the T intersection, take the road that stays in the park.
As you are walking on the road, look for a bridge on the right.
When you get to it, cross it.
Continue going straight till you get to a paved road, then take a left.
At the fork in the road, take a right.
At the next fork, stay straight.
Take the foot path that is on the left.
At the fork, take a right.
You will soon come to another paved road, take a right.
At the next intersection, take the path a car can not go down.
At the fork, stay to the left.
Stay left at the fork soon after or you will be back on the previous trail.
As you go down this path, you will follow a stream on the right.
Eventually you will see a huge tree stump about 8 feet tall on the right.
Just past the stump is the fallen tree
Go to the east side of fallen tree.
Your letterbox is underneath the tree about 10 feet from the tree stump.

Stamp in and take a set of directions for the second letterbox. This requires a very short drive from Bryan Park. If direction sheets are getting low please e-mail me.

Just an interesting fact: Gaston put the second park under 6-8ft of water. Most of the park was damaged and the intial hiding place removed. Although the box had to be moved a few feet, the directions are essentially the same. You will be within a few feet of the letterbox if you follow the directions and can see the hiding place.
