Nana and the M & M's were out letterboxing all day only to realize that nary a box was close to their home on the way to the Mighty Mississippi River. They decided to change all of that with their first letterbox placement in their hometown of Burlison, TN. What an exciting day!
From Hwy 51 at Covington, Tn:
Go west on Hwy 59 west (section of Hwy 59 that runs between Covington and the Mississippi River). Go approximately 7 miles to Burlison, Tn. You'll see the Burlison Gin on the right, a little further and you'll see the Smyrna Baptist Church on the right. The blue metal building on the left as soon as you pass the church is the Burlison Community Center. Pull in to the drive on the left side of the building and drive straight back to the park. Look to your right to the picnic table that is the farthest away from the parking lot. Once at the picnic table, scan the woods for the large uprooted tree. Carefully make your way through the woods to the roots of the tree. The box is on the left side of the tree directly behind the roots under some loose bark. Remember, keep the secret and happy letterboxing!
