Can you believe it? We are missing one of our keys!!! I guess vacation is such a carefree time – we tend to be a little less organized with our belongings! We set out from Key Allegro to search for a letterbox in Goose Island State Park, and picked up a map on our way in. Being new to the whole letterboxing game, we apparently ended up at the exact opposite trail head /entrance to Turk’s Head trail!!! Not realizing our mistake, we paced 17 steps from the start of the trail, and spotted a huge tree on our left (approximately to the Southwest at 240 degrees).
Thrilled to think we might be locating the letterbox, we took 9 paces closer to the North side of the tree. Fighting the thorns and mosquitoes, we removed the loose bark in front and felt around in the hollowed trunk at about eye-level.
It must have been at that moment that we lost our first key!
