This is a one of several LBs included in the Mid-MO FF Tome Vol II which was won by DragAlong4Fun at the Mid-MO Arts and Crafts Fall gathering in 2006. The winner was given 30 days to claim FF before I published the clues. I believe all but two were claimed.

The boxes are from the FB Vol II series (Favorite Books) that my son and I love. To find the starting point for each simply read the book (bonus points if read with a youngster) and use a simple Caesar Code to decode the encrypted text. By answering the question you will have a single word. Simply count the letters in the word and use that number and the Caesar to decrypt.

Based on the book by Robert Presit

How many children are playing marbles?


Take the trail running east downhill. It will split and you’ll go left curving down the hill to a small wooden bridge. Cross it then stand on the creek side of the first large tree you find on the right. Go twelve paces on a bearing of 155° to a second large tree. Stand on the side away from the creek and go 110° 5 paces to another. 170° four paces to another and 122° seven paces to another. Whew! At this final tree find on the north side a smallish downed tree with a peculiar base which lies on the uphill side. Check this end.

Please be discreet in your LBing and prudent in your rehideation. Always hide boxes so they're completely hidden from view.
