All directions are magnetic, and a pace equals two (2) steps.
From US Rte. 1 South head toward I-95 South via the "Portsmouth/Boston" on-ramp. As soon as you enter the ramp, look to the right where the guard-rail ends. At the edge of the woods you will see a stone monument standing in a small, apparently land-locked bone-yard--a solitary cemetery? (with a nod to Bubbaloo Magoo!).

Your prize rests in peace under a SPOS between the small "Husband." stone and the base of the monument.

FWIW, I parked on the grass at the edge of the break-down lane on the ramp when I first explored this little, forgotten cemetery, and again on the day I planted. I'm pretty sure you don't want to try this 'box in winter. YMMV, and invariably will...
Please stamp in away from the hiding place, and carefully avoid making or at least try to conceal social trails to the letterbox--especially in mud or snow! Kindly bag the log, reseal the Lock-n-Lock type box, and re-hide the letterbox exactly where it was placed, covering it well and contact the placer if you find any problems.

Thank you, Connfederate
