***Re-hid a new box (with a few new clues) on 9/05/11 as the last one came up missing!!

This letterbox was planted on our first ever family camp
night(according to our 13 year son, it should be our last). He did carve the stamp though before he started complaining about the lack of electricity in nature.

First, assign every letter in the alphabet a number. For example, A=1, B=2, C=3, etc. Next, assign the numbers to the letters to spell out "Scott Co Camping". Add them up to get a three digit number. Take this number and subtract the number associated with the letter "E". At Scott County park you must find the campground that is defined as "a wild and uncultivated region". Next, take the number that you came up with above and find that campsite. From the back of this numbered sign post, figure out the number of steps to take by taking the word "Park" and coming up with a two digit number as per above. Take that number of steps directly toward the wooded area. Enter the wooded area and take 20 adult-sized steps on the deer trail which will take you to a small clearing. With the campsite to your back, look left and you will see the letterbox snug down in the "V" of a "V"-shaped tree!
