INTRO & THANK YOUS:
This is the first box planted and then replanted by the three furies. Ryan was kind enough to allow us to piggyback on his Los Osos Oaks Series. Thank you Ryan. The first Crone Box was vandalized. With advice from Sir Balthazar, we replanted a month later. Thank you to Sir Balthazar.
Follow the clues for Ryan's Los Osos Oaks Series. Follow all the clues until you get to the Butterfly box (the 4th box). When the Crone box was first planted, the butterfly box was alive and well. However, when we replanted the Crone box, the butterfly box was gone. So, we have put a place saver box in that spot until Ryan has an opportunity to recarve and replant – this way you at least know you are on the right track.
After you rebury the butterfly box (either the real one by Ryan or the place saving box), remain facing the tree -- then turn to your right about 90 degrees. Then take 37 paces towards an old tree twisted by time and the elements. Welcome to the Crone Tree. Please be respectful. The box is found within the Crone Tree.
PLEASE NOTE: Be careful when reaching into holes and crevasses. Please use gloves or prod with a stick. You will also want to be careful of the poison oak.
