This box is at Jetton Park on Lake Norman in Cornelius, NC.
A vehicle entrance fee of $3 (County resident) and $5 (non-County resident) is charged on weekends and holidays from March 1 through October 31. The park is free from November 1 until March 1. For more information about Jetton Park and to download a map go to:

To get to Jetton Park: From I-77, take exit 28 and go west on West Catawba Ave. Turn right onto Jetton Rd. (a Wachovia Bank is on the right). Jetton Park is ½ mile on the left.
Even though this is pretty much a drive-by, plan on spending some extra time at the park. There are hiking trails, paved bike trails, bike rentals, plenty of picnic tables (some with grills), a sunning beach, and a large playground.

Clues: There is a rumor that a monster named “Normie” resides in Lake Norman. (He looks a lot like Nessie). Some people have clamed to have seen him, but there is no proof that he is real.
You can find out more about Normie at

The key to finding a monster is to find his hiding place. I happen to know where he is hiding. To find him you will need a map. Find picnic site #17. (Hopefully nobody is there).
From the picnic table look southeast at 140 degrees. Normie is hiding behind the log.

Make sure that you rehide this box well as this is a busy park.

Good luck and have fun.
