To get these clues in word format, you can email me at letterboxing.gs@gmail.com, and I'll send them to you.

Note: The area which you will be going through to find these letterboxes is absolutely covered with poison ivy. I’ve made it where you can still get to the boxes without making any contact with it, but you’ll still have to maneuver around the poison ivy to avoid it. So be sure you know what it looks like and be careful.

(#5 of an 8 box series)

• Head northwest to your left towards the woods

• You will take the trail you will see

• At the fork in the trail in the very beginning, go left (the side without the bridges)

• You will come to a crumbly asphalt road, turn right

• To your left up ahead you’ll see the continuation of the trail, turn onto it

• You know you’re on the right path when you cross a wooden bridge; continue on
