This great carve was done by SAFARI MAN. It is a GREAT stamp worth the effort to color it!

THIS STAMP WAS MEANT TO BE COLORED WITH MARKERS... not with an ink pad... so IF you use an ink pad, PLEASE bring some water to clean it off and dry it before placing it back into the bag.

DIRECTIONS: From Woodville, Ohio, travel east on US 20 about 2 miles. The cemetery is on the north side of the road. So you need to pass it and then turn to your left, as soon as possible, swing back into the west bound north lane and pull in after the little bridge that crosses over the creek. There is a white sign that says SUGAR CREEK CEMETERY.

This is the oldest bone yard in the township. It is right next to Sugar Creek. Thus the name Sugar Creek Cemetery.

There are very few stones left in this bone yard, but they still mow it. The deer frequent here, as do I. I pass by every day on my way to work.

CLUES: Pull into the tiny drive, off the busy roadway, walk along the edge of the woods to take a look at the few headstones that remain here.

You can also find the 7th Grade, Solomon Lutheran letterbox in this same bone yard.

Travel over to the very back of the bone yard just into the woods area. BE VERY CAREFUL, THERE ARE WOODCHUCK HOLES NEAR BY... Here you will find a war veteran. Next to him you will see his 30 year old daughter's headstone. H

Directly behind their headstones at, about the 1 o'clock position, is a narley big bush. Look at the base of this bush. You will see a large piece of bark and several sticks. Under these you will find the GONE FISHIN' letterbox camouflage pouch, made by SAFARI MAN.

I hope you had a good day letter boxing. There is another series of my boxes not far from here, but that series takes approximately 2 hours.
