Take the trail due south. Descend a long hill passing fields on your right after which the trail turns sharply to the east (left). Find trail on the left side which enters the woods. Take this trail and head the wooded hill. At the top of the hill, on your right, a swayed oak leans to the right the straight up again. Just past this swayed oak the trail opens to a field. Go right (east) skirting the field with woods on your right and field on your left. The trail that ruins around the perimeter of the field runs east, and then turns north. Continue until another row of trees come from the west to meet you and makes an entrance to another large field. On your right will be a massive tree. Stand on the north side of the brush which surrounds this huge tree. From here go 100° to a small clump of trees standing alone in the field. From south east side of this cluster, go across the field 110° to a medium oak on the edge of the woods. From this tree go 100° 24 paces to a large oak with an old fence still clinging to it. Find the hole on the north side.

comments regarding the
Gaurdian stones are vital to this LB survival. Please replace them once you're finsihed.
This is a wild and beautiful area typical of Missouri’s northern Glaciated Plains. Bring your binoculars and bird identification book as birding here is excellent.
Trails here tend be what most consider gravel roads or wide swaths cut into the woods and fields.
On your way out, stop at Crane’s Country Store in Williamsburg. They have a great food and an excellent variety of drinks, including several different brands of Root-Beer. I’d suggest trying a Fitz’s Root-Beer. They also have some amazing ice cream. Friendly folks make this a wonderful place to stop and take in a cold one.
Please be discreet in your LBing and prudent in your re-hideation and please contact me after finding this LB.
