This is my first attemp at a letterbox. It is actually a hybrid Geocache. and can be found as waypoint ID #GC11N1Y on geocaching.com.
TO get to the box there are 2 great ways to get there.
1st way: Coming from North(Augusta) or From South(Douglass) get on US HWY 77 and procede to SW 170th RD (4Mi North of Doug, 7 Miles South of Aug), turn and go east until you get to the top of a hill, its about 2 miles, there you will find Hopkins Switch Rd, you need to turn Left(go North) about 1.3 Miles to SW 157th, then turn back to the Left(West) and procede about 1/2 mile, you will see a church on the right side of the road and a cemetery on the left. You will need to enter the fathest West gate, procede to where the road turns back to the left, there is a row of trees by the road you came in on, then there is a second row of trees about 30' East of that road, This is your tree line, count 5 trees up from the South and you will find the container. It is cammoed and hidden fairly well. It contains a Geocache logbook as well as a stamp for you to stamp your book.
Note:DO NOT TAKE THIS ROUTE IF IT HAS RAINED OVER AN INCH OR 2 THERE IS A LOW WATER BRIDGE ON HOPKINS SWITCH THAT EASILY FLOODS AFTER A RAIN
Way #2: From Augusta or Douglass Head to SW 163rd Terr (Gordon RD), Go East on 163rd about 1/2 mile then jog North about 1/3 mile on Ohio, the turn back to the East on SW 160th go about 1 1/4 miles and the road again jogs to the North and then back East, the Road you are looking for is SW 157th Terr, go East on tis Road about 1/2 mile and you will find the cemetery on your right and the Church on your left, Enter the cemetery and follow the directions above to find the box.
This is an active hybrid Geocache and has been listed and found on Geocaching.com. Thanks and Good Luck Rob
