Ssssssss ! Letterbox

Your quest begins by finding telephone pole # “H21780” on Tuckerton Road, Tabernacle. (Carranza Rd turns into Tuckerton Rd and then back to Carranza Rd ONLY if you stay on the black top road. It is only Tuckerton Rd for a short section where it passes Hampton Rd. The dirt road where Hampton Furnace was). Be very careful, this location has been the sighting of a pretty good size rattlesnake recently.

Take a compass reading from the telephone pole. Walk across the black top road to the dirt road at 300 degrees. Walk south down the dirt road and look for the alcove on your immediate left.

Standing at the tree at the point of the alcove (tree has been hacked real bad in the past) walk 120 degrees 15 paces. There is a bunch of branches at its base. From this location, walk 240 degrees 11 paces to the tree that grows next to a tree with its small dead and broken brother. (hint: opposite point of alcove) For the next jaunt, proceed at 170 degrees 23 paces down the worn out path, no high stepping is required. Look ahead for the triangle tree that will bear your treasure. Thank you for stamping in. Please return it to it’s proper resting spot and please cover well. Thank you.
