School House Rock Series: Grammar Rock #3 Rufus Xavier Sarsaparilla

This series is dedicated to one of my favorite childhood memories of getting up every Saturday morning and watching cartoons; however the cartoons I remember most were the ones that took place in between the shows. The ones that are still with me to this day teaching me how a bill becomes a law and the difference between adjectives and adverbs. Every Saturday morning between 1973 and 1985, ABC assembled a brilliant and ever-changing creative team, who crafted educational public service announcements that not only taught children but entertained all who watched them. Squeezed between episodes of Scooby Doo and LaffOlympics and Underoos, they artfully snuck in education. Schoolhouse Rock became a rote means for both children and adults to learn the Preamble of the Constitution or know the function of a conjunction. Today they are all on video and can be rented or purchased for personal viewing pleasure. It’s too bad they no longer air on any of the major networks. Their entertaining and educational message is hard to beat.

This series was design for all both old and young short and tall so it is very kid friendly and a fairly leisurely outing compared to my usual boxes.

To locate this letterbox you must find the second box in the series since it is the starting location for this box.

Before you begin your hunt I would suggest you go to:
To get into the right frame of mind for hunting.

Starting from Interjections continue down the trail. After 30 paces you will see a large cottonwood with gnarly roots. This is a favorite place for many children to play and hide in the large hollow in the middle of the tree, just make sure its all clear of bugs and other pests. After admiring this tree continue down the trail and past the three mile marker. As you round a corner the trail will go under and run parallel to some utility lines. Stop at the first pole to the left of the trail. From the pole head 320º to find a hidden trail hidden among the weeds and tunneling back under the bushes. Follow this tunnel about 5 paces to the top of the earthen berm. You should see a small forked tree whose trunk and roots form an “L”. Look inside the bottom of the “L” and above some guardian stones. What you seek is crammed into the topside of the root.

Please rehide well so none of the pouch is showing and be very discreet in your LBing. The boxes are located right off the trail and people can sneak up on you if you are not paying close attention. Please drop me a note to let me know how your hunt went.
If the box is missing or damaged please contact me at ahistory (at) centurytel (dot) net or through the LbNA.
