The real name of this letterbox is “Bucket of Warm Piss” but in deference to anyone with delicate sensibilities it is listed as “Bucket of Warm Spit”

This box is found in the "most visited state park in Texas". Garner State Park was acquired in 1934-36 and was named for John Nance Garner (Cactus Jack) of Uvalde, who served as Vice-president of the United States from 1933-41. Garner, always the character, once described the office of the vice presidency as being "not worth a bucket of warm piss" (at the time reported sans the bowdlerization "spit") and that his decision to take it in the first place was "the worst damn fool mistake I ever made."

Garner State Park is 31 miles north of Uvalde. The park is located in Uvalde County, 31 miles north of the town of Uvalde, 9 miles south of Leakey, or 8 miles north of Concan on the Frio River. From US Highway 83, turn east on FM 1050 for .2 miles to Park Road 29 to the new entrance

To find the Bucket of Warm Piss letterbox, park at the pavilion and locate the paved hiking trail that starts behind the pavilion across the sandstone paved dance floor. Follow this westerly trail to the cutoff to the Blinn River Trail. Don’t take the Blinn River Trail, but use this as a starting point to count 50 paces on the main trail. Look east off of the trail about 8 steps and find what appears to be an abandoned fire pit. About 4 more steps east you will find a small copse of trees, about the same diameter as the fire pit. Look under the leaves and sticks at the base of the trees for the letterbox. Please replace and recover well.
