Two geocachers from Kansas decided to do some letterboxing. They liked it alot. They really liked it better than geocaching and got into carving stamps and looking for other letterboxes. Unfortunately, most of the letterboxes they searched for were either gone missing or messed up, due to the poor quality of containers used. They also noticed that most letterboxes were not visited very frequently. Nothing like the geocaches were. SO they decided to start placing their brand spanking new letterboxes inside ammo box geocaches they had set out. This is the first one of those. It is in Heritage Park near their home.

Here is a map of Heritage Park. http://jcprd.com/parks_facilities/map_heritage_park.cfm

You can start out by parking by the marina near Blackbob Island. Take the paved path along the east side of the lake walking northwest. You will pass a few park benches so you can sit and rest if you get tired.

When the path starts to leave the lake you will notice a chain link fence on your left around a concrete drain with a wooden post with an arm and a ring for hanging your big fish you catch I suppose. The biggest fish I ever caught in this lake was a 3 pound trout I caught just a few feet away in the narrow stream part of the lake. The fish hangin post wasn't here back then. On top of the post is a pineapple.

Keep going. You will soon notice a fence on your right at the top of the hill. It surrounds the stock pond where they grow some of the big fish. You aren't supposed to fish there. I got ran off once when I tried. I guess they have some special fish in there or something.

Keep going down the path just a little more until you can walk up the hill to your right on the outside of the fence. Better not carry your fishin pole with you if you know what's good for you. You will see a few small trees on the outside of the fence. The first one with only a single trunk is the one you are looking for. It is not too far.

Behind that trunk is a green ammo box. Inside it is a geocache with a log book and trade goods. If you are a geocacher too you have just found Heritage #4 and can log your find at www.geocaching.com if you are a premium member.

Inside the green ammo box is a baggie containing a plastic box with the Heritage Park letterbox log and stamp inside. You know what to do from here. Please leave everything the way you found it and make sure you seal the ammo box and nothing is sticking out that might make it leak.

Email me at larry739@sbcglobal.net and let me know if you find it or to report any problems. I only live a couple of miles away.

Enjoy.
