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 THUMBING IT. Happy traveling!
Clues: Traveling northbound on I-71, approaching Hinckley at the 224 mile marker, turn in to the rest stop and park in the car lot near the covered shelter before the main building. From the covered shelter head east to the light pole. Turn right at the light pole and head due south over the small hill to the rail road tie pile. (Note from finder in Aug. 2010:The ties are not immediately recognizable from the tree line. They are nearly completely covered by many tall plants called "lady slippers".
Please let the seeker know that the lady slipper plant is in no way poisonous.) Upon approaching the ties notice the V made by two ties and the whitish rock in the V. THUMBING IT is located under the rock in a camo canister. Please be discrete when retrieving and replacing this box since you might be viewable from the picnic tables and cars located not far away. When done stamping in, please replace the box as you found it and make sure the zippers for the baggies are closed securely. And if you have time, please be so kind as to let me know the condition of the letterbox by contacting the placer at the top of this clue page. I hope your hunt was successful and you enjoyed the respite from your weary day of traveling. Safari Man of Vincent, Ohio.
