This is our first letterbox placement so the clues may be difficult but not if you have a GPS.
We have place our box just outside of Ardmore, Tn., when you come into Ardmore on highway 53 you will pass under the railroad and take an immediate right on to Ardmore Ridge rd. not long after you start down Ardmore Ridge you will pass the John Barnes park, we have truck and tractor pulls here every year along with the Ardmore Quarterback club car show and the Crepe Myrtle festival.
Continue going straight at the 4 way stop just past the park. After about a 3mile drive you will start down Spook Hollow hill, I don’t know how it got its name, must be some spooks around at night. At the bottom of the hill turn right on to Lofton Hall rd, when you get to a small bridge you will see the sign for the Whistle Hollow Farm to the right follow this road and stop in at Whistle hollow for some good country cooking, you check their web site for hours and activities, they are also on Face Book. After you pass Whistle Hollow Farm it’s just a few miles to another old RR tunnel, before you go through the tunnel there is a small driveway to an open field on your left pull in here and look for 2 old railroad ties in front of the gate, you will find our box at the end of one of the ties.
For those of you that use GPS the coordinates are: Lat. N35deg 2’45.5”Lon. E86deg 50’ 34.8”
