Dial M for Letterbox LbNA # 27737
|Placed Date||Dec 17 2006|
***Update 9/23/2012*** This box has been reported MISSING. I will check on it next time I am in Platteville. Check out my other boxes in Wisconsin placed by In Cahoots and/or Drunken Wench!
Terrain: Intermediate, Steep climb up stairs
Estimated time: 1 hour round trip
Recommendations: Not recommended in icy conditions, do not attempt to climb in rocks. Good hiking shoes.
This letterbox is hidden near the "World's Largest M." There is a parking lot for about 6 cars at the base of the M, where you will find a plaque with information about this landmark.
Begin your climb up the staircase, and find these people and their numbers:
Clarice Myers, Jr #________
Jeffrey A. Roschyk #________
John and Bonnie Hoeft #________
Walter A Gluege #________
When you complete your climb up the stairs, continue straight ahead between the pile of dishes and the shed, until you reach a gravel path.
Follow the path downhill. Be on the lookout for a tall man with no skin on your right. Staying on the path, count off Clarice Meyer's number of paces from the tall man. (If the path turns sharply and you go over a bump, you've gone too far.)
Turn to your left and go up a very short hill into the wooded area. Look for a huge natural cross, it will be approximately John and Bonnie's number of paces into the woods. If you climb upon the cross facing uphill, the top log will point toward a pair of naked twins in the distance approximately Walter A. Gluege's number of paces away.
Follow the log pointer to the twins.
At this juncure Jeffrey A. Roschyk would pace to the right to find a hollow place.
The fruit of your labor rests in such a place.
Please re-hide as you found it.
