Hey, Where's Perry? LbNA # 58527 (ARCHIVED)
|Placed Date||Jun 30 2011|
|Location||Somerset Dr, Galesburg, IL|
From Rt 150, take N. Lake Storey Road west and take your first left onto Somerset Dr. Park alongside the road and find the hard-surface walking/biking path that goes west.
Phineas: "Ferb, I know what we're gonna do today!"
Start down the hill, cross the small creek and look for the trail through the woods on your left. From the tree that starts the trail, take 35 steps. Look to your left for a Y shaped log on the ground. Here's where Phineas is planning your adventure for the day.
Ferb: "Platypuses are the only mammals to lay eggs."
Continue on this path to the clearing. Head back up to the walking/biking path. Soon you'll come upon a bench. As you sit on the bench, ahead of you will be "twin" pine trees. At the base, Ferb is also planning for the adventure.
Candace: "They are soooo busted!"
Head back up to the path once again. Keep walking across the bridge, past the playground to the restrooms. Standing on the path at the corner of this building looking towards the lake, straight ahead, you will see a three-trunked tree (three trunks growing side by side). From there, take 30 steps southwest. Here, Candace trying to figure out a way to bust her brothers.
Agent P: "Dooby, dooby, doo-ba"
Back to the path again! Keep on the path down the hill, through the beach area, to the sitting/lookout shelter on the water. After you enjoy the view, stand at the entrance (facing the path) and take 38 steps along the tree line. There is a large tree with very cool bark. Be careful...you're only steps from the edge of the lake! Agent P has taken his secret entrance to the base of this tree. (And yes, you must hum/sing the Agent P tune!)
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: "Curse you, Perry the Platypus!"
Once again, go back to the path. Continue on until you come to a bridge, but don't cross it. Instead take a sharp left to a trail. Take 10 steps on the trail. Stop here and take 10 steps into the woods. Around the back of a dark-barked tree, you'll see Dr. Doofenshmirtz plotting his next move to take over the Tri-State area.
Perry: "Oh, there you are Perry."
Go back to the trail. Be careful of your footing, as you are again, close to the water. You'll come to a tree that has fallen in the lake. From here, take 20 more steps. To the right by another fallen tree is the final box containing Perry!
To return to your vehicle, continue on this path. When you reach the end, go right on the walking/biking path and follow the path back the way you came.
This is a growing letterbox series. You are welcome to add stamps of other Phineas and Ferb characters. There is room for 1 more stamp inside boxes 1-5 and room for 4-5 stamps in box 6. The stamps need to be 1 1/2 " x 2" or smaller to fit in the boxes. If you add stamps, let me know and I'll add them to the clues!
Please be sure to re-hide all of these boxes well! You will need your own stamp pad. There is one log book, located in the last box.
