Hold on to your horses! This letterbox is out for repair 10/2/15...I will let you know when it's back! FYI: I may have to update the directions when I put it back...I will keep you posted!

This Letterboxing series is inspired by the movie "The Adventures of Tin Tin"! This is a great movie...if you have not seen it go see it before you find the Letterboxes, it will make your hunt a more exciting adventure!!

First, find the Tennis Center at Tumbleweed Park in Chandler (2250 S McQueen Rd). To get here exit the 202 at McQueen Rd and head south. Just past Germann Rd you will see an entrance for Tumbleweed park on the righthand side. Enter here then make a quick left to park in the tennis court parking lot. Look for the giant silver sculpture as you enter the parking lot...this will be your starting point.

Once you have parked walk to the big silver sculpture. From the silver sculpture walk south to the corner of the tennis court. Stop and face the road (McQueen Rd). Notice the lone Palo Verde tree surrounded by rocks in the drainage area. At the base of the tree lies Tin Tin and Snowy, two adventure seekers to help you along the way! -please rehide well-

Continue south along the tennis courts. When you reach the end of the tennis court turn right and continue to walk along the tennis court fence. Stop when you can no longer continue because you are blocked by a big cluster of shrubs/bushes (this will also be the corner/end of a tennis court). Put your back to the tennis court fence. Look slightly to your left and you will see a tree with three trunks (two trunks are vertical while one crawls along the ground). The treasure you seek lies where the trunks of the tree meet!

Congratulations on your finds so far! You have an adventure seeker (Tin Tin), a sidekick (Snowy), and a captain of a all you need is the ship. Walk around the cluster of shrubs/bushes that you previously stopped at, and continue west along the tennis court fence to find the ship that you seek! When you reach the corner of the fence you will see a big open area (grassy drainage area). With your back to the fence look west-ish and across the open grassy area you will see three clumps of Mesquite trees. Walk to the clump of Mesquite trees on the right. Where the elbow of the tree cradles the trunk there is a gap covered will dead foliage. The ship you seek lies here!

To get back to your car continue north around the tennis courts and you will reach the parking lot!
