Sally Carrera is a character in the animated movie "Cars". Sally (voiced by Bonnie Hunt) is a royal blue 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera. Her California license plate number is 301PCE. She also appears in the Cars video game, in which she is a playable character. Sally, Lightning McQueen's love interest and later girlfriend, is the snazzy town attorney of Radiator Springs. She came to the town several years before, when, in her own words, "I never felt --happy. So I left California just drove and drove, and finally broke down right here (Wheel Well Motel). Doc fixed me up, Flo took me in -- well, they all did -- and I never left." Sally then fell in love with the town, and the land around it, and settled down in the town. Sally runs the Cozy Cone Motel. Later, she and Lightning reopened the Wheel Well Hotel. She calls McQueen "Stickers," first as a way to tease him (because of his fake headlights), and later as a friendly nickname. In the UK cars magazine Top Gear, Sally was included in the magazine's list of the 10 sexiest cars in the World.
This letterbox is located at the Walker County Safety Rest Area, a few miles north of Huntsville on the south-bound side of Interstate 45, Mile Marker 125. This is one of the great new rest stops that have been going up on Texas Interstate highways in the past few years. Check them out at http://www.txdot.gov/travel/safety_rest_areas/map.htm . If you’re heading north from Houston, you must go past the rest area to Exit 132, cross over I45 and head south. Going south, look for Mile Marker 125 and exit into the rest area on the right. Park in front of the Visitor’s Building. Go inside.
To the box:
When you get ready to find the box, go out back and enjoy the view of the pond. Find the trail to your left (north) that loops around the pond. Walk past the two picnic pavilions on your left to the end of the paved walkway and the Nature Trail sign. Take the dirt trail until you come to a bench on the left. From the bench, take 136 steps up the trail to the right that is on top of the berm. Stop and step down the slope to your left, then walk into the woods for 23 steps to a one foot tall stump. . The box is at the back of that stump under pieces of bark. Be sure to replace it carefully and cover it completely so that it will be there for the next finder. Sally is royal blue, so use black to stamp her and color in the blue with the pencil provided.
