CEASAR is a SHIFTy fellow especially when he is on T.

Box#3: The Treasure
Solve the puzzle. It might help to draw in lines to separate into 9 sections of 9. The boxes are on a coordinate system. X runs horizontally and y runs vertically. X = 1 Y = 1 (1,1) is the top left box. X = 9 Y = 9 (9,9) is the bottom right box. Go back to the trail. At the Y fork go (2,2 in the tens place and 1,3 in the ones place) {Ha, ha, ha your math teacher told you would use place values one day} degrees for (3,6 in the tens place and 3,2 in the ones place) paces (a pace is every time your right or left foot hits the ground.) X marks the spot. Actually, a small elm and vine make an X to the right of the trail. The box is behind the tree that is behind the X.

As always, be careful for snakes, spiders, poison ivy and the like. Please re-hide as well as or better than you found the box. Ticks are a big problem when its warm so take precautions.
