Dreamed up by test pilots during WWII, the Turtle Club was is exclusive organization that became quite popular in the 1960's while the Apollo team was trying to 'maintain an even strain' and beat the Russians to the moon. Membership is diligently sought after and highly esteemed by those lucky enough to successfully answer three questions from a list of about 25 possible qualifying questions. The questions suggest a vulgar or lewd answer, but the actual correct answer is rather innocuous. Once inducted, a member must reply to the question "Are you a turtle?" with the correct answer, or buy that person a drink. This minibox is located in Frankie Carter Randolph Park near the stomping grounds of those intrepid astronauts, but to find it you will have to become an honorary member of the Turtle Club by answering the following 3 questions:
1. What does a woman do sitting down that a dog does on three legs, and a man does standing up? _____ _____
2. What does a cow have four of, that a woman only has two of? _____
3. What is both rounded and hard and sticks so far out of a man's pajamas you can hang your hat on it? _____ _____
Now, are you a turtle? _____ _____ _____ _____ _____ _____ _____
Good luck, and remember, all turtles know that you never get anywhere in life without sticking your neck out!
From I45 South, exit Hwy 2351 and go southwest for 2.3 miles. Just after Blackhawk Blvd, turn right into the park. Once you enter, go straight on the one-way road to the parking lot by the baseball field and park in NW corner by the Nature Trail sign.
Walk 65 steps north on the asphalt path, then go left on the rock trail for 50 steps to a Y jct. Bear left and walk these computed number of steps: add the total number of letters in all your answers above, multiply by 5, then add 5. Turn left and walk 20 steps off trail to a double-trunk tree beyond some logs. The camo minibox is hanging on back side of tree about 6.5 feet high. It has rubber bands keeping the lid on, so please replace as found. NOTE: Tree or branch might be down with box under it, or it is missing.
