The "Safari Man- On The Highway/ and Interstate" series depicts things one might see as they drive the highways of the U.S.. These are targeted mainly for rest stops but might pop up anywhere. This letterbox is titled PICNIC AT THE REST STOP. Happy traveling!
Clues: **BOX HAS BEEN REPORTED AS MISSING ** Find the rest stop adjacent to the northwest bound lane of Oh 35 about 1/2 the way between Jackson and Chillicothe. Park at the first/eastern end of the Auto parking area and head toward the concrete path which runs kinda east west at the rear of the park. When you get on this path head easterly and stop before reaching the treatment plant. Turn left and proceed to the end of the concrete turn around area. Take a heading of 010* and walk ~(Approx.) 33 steps to the large double pines on the tree line (Note: while doing this last bit of walking in the grass, you need to hold your gripped right hand out at waist level like you have a dog leash so no one pays much attention to what you are doing walking around out here) ;0) After reaching the double pines, turn right and head down the tree line ~32 steps and turn left. You should be looking at a large pine with a smaller pine with a fork about 1 foot above ground, on its right. Behind the pines is a downed tree running parallel to the tree line. Please....UNOBSERVED, look under the back of the root end of this tree, under limbs, for your quest. When done stamping in, please put the log in one bag and seal it well, then put that bag and the stamp in the other bag and seal it well and replace the pouch as you found it. The Pouch is not water proof and that is why it is of utmost importance that both baggies be sealed completely. I appreciate your help in preserving this letterbox for future finders and hope you enjoyed this respite from your weary travels. Please let me know how this letterbox is doing, if you don't mind. Cordially, Safari Man
