We got the idea for this stamp from the movie, "Bedtime Stories", starring Adam Sandler. The children's pet guinea pig, Bugsy, had these huge bug eyes that just made us laugh and laugh, so the cubs asked me to make a stamp out of him!
Directions to the area:
Take I-24 East toward Chattanooga.
Take the Sam Ridley Parkway East exit (the second Sam Ridley Pkwy exit) and merge into traffic.
Pass the golf course and the Smyrna airport on your left.
Turn left onto Weakley Lane at the stoplight.
Pass the National Guard on your left and the Square D Company on your right.
Turn left at the large brown sign for Stewart Ferry Boat Ramp at the J. Percy Priest Lake.
Take your first right, and park in the parking area.
Follow the greenway around the lake to the right (counter clockwise).
Look for the small green 4.75 mile marker to the left of the trail.
Go approximately 230 steps from the mile marker.
On your right you will see several trees- look for a larger 2-trunked tree sitting back in the woods, about 10 steps from the trail. This tree has live vines and creeper growing up the trunk.
Behind the tree, there is a thick, leafless vine growing up the back. The letterbox is buried at the base of the trunk, underneath pine needles and dead wood.
