Clues before you go:
Clue “A”. The name of the North Star in the sky is _ _ _ _ _ _ _.
Clue “B”. The definition of “B” is: a great circle on the surface of the earth, passing through the poles and any given place, the representation of such a circle or half circle, as by means of a line, the series of such lines being numbered according to the degrees of longitude. “B” = _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Go to Ziegler Park in West Bend, at the crossroads of Terrace and Lincoln Drives.
The first clue you will need is to count the top row of blocks that surround the park sign and remember how many there are, clue “C”. C=_____

Next, go to the basketball hoop. Stand directly under the net/hoop area, not the pole. Take a compass bearing to the merry-go-round. This is clue “D”. D=_____

Go to the trail crossroads at the drinking fountain and washroom. Take the trail south, up the hill and through the woods. Trail then goes downhill turning to sidewalk. At the next trail intersection turn east and continue traveling. You will cross the Eisenbahn Trail, a “rails to trails” addition to Washington County that many people use for biking, walking, rollerblading and skiing in the winter. Continue east, the trail will curve to the right ending on the cul de sac on Hargrove Place. Take Hargrove east until you can turn south at (Clue “B”).

Travel south until you can turn east again at (Clue “A”). Travel east and look for the park entrance sign on your right!

Go up the hill into the park, then down a steep hill! At the bottom of the hill the trail curves slightly to the right. Look to your left for a trail that heads out on a bearing of (Clue “D”). As you start down this trail look for the skeleton of an old manure spreader to the south! Go to the manure spreader!

Go to the “business” end of the manure spreader. From here you need to take a compass bearing of (Clue “C” times 10). Follow this heading about 8 steps to find the stamp for “Manure Spreader”.

Please remember to re-hide and camouflage the letterbox after stamping and recording your “movement”…
