Ten Cubed LbNA # 56048
|Owner||Bloomin' Gramma Jo|

"The number ten is regarded as the most perfect of numbers, because it contains the Unit that did it all, and the zero, symbol of the matter and the Chaos, of which all came out; it then includes in its figure the created and the non-created, the beginning and the end, the power and the force, the life and the nothing."
I love the number 10 because it is so easy to add, subtract, multiply and divide. So here's to the number 10 on 10-10-10.
To find the stamp for this unique date, proceed to Duncan Park (note the 10 letter name) on West 10th Street in Austin Texas. Once you have parked at the curb and paid your parking fee from the little machine (if it is a week-day), locate the fire hydrant along the sidewalk just a bit west of the small brick retaining wall. From the fire hydrant, walk west along the sidewalk 10x6 steps to the intersection with the sidewalk to the walking path along Shoal Creek.
Take that sidewalk angling down and to the left for 10x5 steps. You should now be at the intersection with the sidewalk/biking path. Angle left again, 10x5+5 steps to the next sidewalk intersection. Are you on your way to Town Lake?
Continue another 10x6 steps to bridge underpass. You will be guarded along this stretch of the walk by wooden soldiers on the left and rock sentries on the right.
Ah! Time to rest. Take Ten by the rock steps. If you have walked under the underpass you have gone too far. Take Ten on the rock steps.
Counting Half-ten steps up, you'll note an open area in the step face. Carefully reach behind the right most rock opening, and you'll find 10-10-10 behind and guarded by a small flat rock.
This is a well-traveled area, so be stelthy and cautious. Hide well, and register you find on AQ and LBNA.
NOTE: Thrice Nine is located nearby, tribute to another unique date.
