To decipher the clues, use each 3-digit sequence to select a letter from the sign. First digit indicates the line, second the word on that line, and the third the letter within that word. Not all the letters needed appeared in the sign, so for the first missing letter (alphabetic order) not in the sign I used sequence (0-0-0), for the third missing letter I used (9-9-9) and for the fifth missing letter I used (8-8-8). Words are seperated by two slashes (//). As always be careful and safe while searching, watch for snakes and other dangerous critters. Please take care to re-hide the box so that no one will find it by accident.

Note: Because of length of time required to decipher, requests for a picture of the sign by those who correctly identify the gateway or its location, will be considered.
