Begin at the Center for Dramatic Art on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This building houses the PlayMakers Repertory Company, a professional theatre which puts on a number of plays during the course of the academic year. While you are here, check out the posters for which plays are coming up--there might be something you want to see!

PlayMakers is important in the creation of this letterbox--the image carved in the stamp is a replica of a tattoo design used in the 2006 PlayMakers production of Bryony Lavery's play, Frozen. One of the characters in the play had several tattoos, and at one point delivered a lengthy monologue explaining the design and significance of each. The stamp's image is of the largest and most detailed--"Angels Fighting Devils (With Leafy Tree Background)".

From the lobby, walk down to the brick sidewalk on Country Club Road and follow it toward the nearby traffic light. Use the crosswalks to cross the street and continue southeast past the Gimghoul intersection.

Perhaps halfway up the block toward Raleigh Road you will notice a small dirt path which branches off to the left into the woods.

Follow this path for 50 steps. (If you get to the Carolina Friends Meeting House, you have gone too far!)

To your right you will see two logs about a foot in diameter, arranged in a V formation. Look beneath the leaves and debris directly behind the smaller of the two--there you will find what you seek. You can sit on the larger log to stamp in. Rehide carefully and completely.

After you locate the box, you may want to take a stroll through the Gimghoul historic district and check out the lavish old houses and mysterious Gimghoul Castle!
