Some of you may have looked for this over the past year. It has now been replaced as of Jan. 7, 2007!

This is a great park for families and dogs. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Please bring your own ink pad and pen. You will also need a compass. Good luck!

P.S. This is the first letterbox we have planted. If you have any suggestions or feel we have left out any important information, please let us know. Thank you!


Find the Champaign park donated by Kyle and Frank in memory of a merchant.

Once you find the park, look around for the Ponderous Rock.

As you sit and contemplate, allow your gaze to fall upon a scene of childhood. Notice the two trees that frame the scene, and go place yourself between them.

From there, identify the rock at 43 degrees (NOT 39 degrees). Here you will find another rock that speaks, but its message is hidden.
