This box was hidden in the spirit of C2B2’s challenge “Now You See It, Now You Don’t.” More information can be found on the Mid Missouri Letterboxers’ blog: Out of town letterboxers may contact me through for more specific clues. You will need to bring your own ink.

This box is hidden in a busy spot in Columbia with high visibility. The successful seeker will need to be cool and crafty to retrieve it. In the words of C2B2: "Please use all the stealth of a big game hunter and try your very best to keep anyone from noticing your stalk." There is a picnic table quite nearby; take the box there to stamp in. The container is compact and the components are very snug. Notice the placement of the logbook, stamp, etc before you remove them so that you can repack it without damaging anything. Please replace the box carefully, again using stealth. Let me know about your adventure through

Now here’s the clue:

Art Forall was strolling along Old Hwy 63 when he came to a totally cool environment. Across the street was a big building with many windows that he had never noticed before. He crossed the street to take a closer look. Looking high, he saw people getting all tangled up in machines with lots of strings on them. Looking low, he saw more people playing in the mud and then baking it. “Wow!” Art exclaimed. “What IS this place?” He walked up the sidewalk a little bit and sat down on a large wooden horseshoe to tie his boot lace. At his feet lay the answer to his question.
