Fairchild Fantasy LbNA # 19387
|Placed Date||Nov 22 2005|
|Last Found||Dec 27 2014|
Box was originally placed by Dream Whisperer on Nov 22, 2005. It was destroyed by fire and replaced 4/13/2007. Box was adopted by Kirbert in Jan 2011. Checked on 1/30/2011, found to still be in place but in poor condition. Container and log were replaced, but the stamped pages from the previous log (from 4/13/2007) were sealed in a baggie and left in the box. The ink pad that had been in the box was discarded.
Box contains a store-bought stamp.
The following clues have been updated twice.
If you're in Seminole County anyone can tell you how to get to River Rd. You'll find Fairchild Park off River Rd. Follow Fairchild State Park Rd. to the boat landing and fishing piers. While there once was a loop drive here, the drive has now been barricaded just after the fishing pier. Park near the barricade and proceed on foot past it to where the picnic area once existed along the water's edge. As the abandoned road bends to the right, stop and look at the pine forest on the inside of the bend. Looking into the trees you'll see two pine trees growing close together; one of them turns out towards the left from about halfway on up to the top. At the base of the other one there's a hollowed out area where I've placed the box, covered with pine needles.
As of 9/2015, many of these pine trees have been marked with light blue spray paint. If that means they're to be removed, it'll make a mess of this area. The particular tree where the box is hidden is not marked, but the tree next to it with the kink in it is marked.
