The box is called ASSAULT and it refers to the 1946 Triple Crown winner from King Ranch, Texas. Assault injured himself at a young age by stepping on a surveyor's stake, leaving him with a club foot. Against these odds, he went on to great things in his life. Assault is the only Triple Crown winner to ever come from the great state of Texas.

Assault is hiding in Mission Tejas State Park in Weches, TX. The park is located between Alto and Crockett on Hwy 21. Pull in, pay the fee, and grab a map.

Make your way to the pond and take the trail to the left, crossing the spillway. ( The pond will be on your right).

Follow the trail to the next bridge and cross it. Turn left at the bench and go to the next intersection.

Turn left here and go over the bridge. Follow this trail up the hill until you see the sign that says “LIGHNING TRAIL”

From the center of this sign, continue 25 steps. Stop and look to your left.
There is a burned stump across the ditch. Go to this stump and follow the downed tree until it meets another log. Follow this log to the left about 4 steps. Assault is waiting on the back side of the log.
