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 Debi Gliori

When small and large look up at the stars far, far away, how many do they see?


Take the trail to the right of the building. It quickly connects at a T to the main trail. Begin counting paces as you go left. At 12 ½ paces find a tall straight oak on the left edge of the trail. Across the trail from this tree is a two foot tall stump with a flat top. From the oak on the edge of the trail go125° nine paces to a tall, straight shag bark hickory. From here go 130° ten paces to a sharp stump of a former ‘V’ tree. One former branch lies to the right and the other behind the stump. Circle round to the right and dig into the shorter of the two.

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