5/3/2007 THIS IS THE FIRST BOX IN A SERIES. THIS BOX HAS BEEN WASHED FROM IT'S HIDING PLACE. I AM IN HOPES THAT I CAN GET IT PLACED BACK IN THE SAME AREA WITHIN THE NEXT 3 WEEKS. THE OTHER BOXES ARE STILL ON THE PATH SO KEEP LOOKING FOR THE THREE BOXES ON YOUR WALK. Take Business 40 WEST toward Winston Salem, North Carolina. Take Linville Road EXIT. Go Right at light and go across the bridge. Pass 2 gas stations, come around a small curve pass over Salem Lake and park on the right hand side of the road in a small parking lot (do not block the gate). Take the dirt/gravel trail below the lot that is next to the lake. The lake is going to be on your right.
Keep walking bear right you should pass a deep creek on your right, which leads to the lake. Keep walking - enjoy the scenery, the lake is beautiful when the sun light hits it around 12 pm to 3 pm. pass the trash can that is chained to a large topped off tree (on your right).
Take 92 steps (I wear a size 5 1/2 shoe) turn left and look up hill, cross a small ditch and pass the big tree on the left that has a small vine type branch growing up the left side of the tree. Then go up a small hill look in front of a tree under some small logs and there is what you are seeking. My middle boy can climb up some of these tree. From here go back to the path you have been walking.
I hope that you enjoy the walk. Take some water and a snack with you to eat.
If you would like another aventure look for BOX #2 called, "Watermelon and Ants". Go a little more and you can find BOX # 3 called, "Keep the Campfires Burning" and BOX # 4 called, "Keep on Canoeing". Stay on this same path though. This path is going to take you to BOX # 2, BOX # 3 and BOX #4. Read below to find out names and directions.
Let me know when you find it.
