This box was created by FungusWoman for the gathering celebrating 10 years of letterboxing in Wisconsin.  The box was then permanently placed along a rustic road somewhere in WI.  If you did not find this box at the gathering (or if you want to find it again), you'll have to first determine which rustic road it is on, then drive that road to pick up additional clues which you'll need to decode the final clue to find the actual box.  Enjoy!

Clues:

First - Determine Which Rustic Road the Box is On:

Go to the Wisconsin Rustic Roads website.  Find the following information:

1) The year in which the Wisconsin Legislature established the Rustic Roads program: A=_______

2) The number of rustic roads a motorcyclist must show they traveled on in order to get a Rustic Roads Motorcycle Tour patch: B=_______

3) The number of rustic roads a motorcyclist must show they traveled on in order to get a special state certificate: C=_______

4) The maximum speed allowed to be set for a rustic road: D=_______

5) The minimum speed allowed to be set for a rustic road: E=_______

6) The minimum number of resident freeholders needed to petition for a road to be designated a rustic road: F=_______

7) The number of members on the Rustic Roads board: G=_______

8) The length, in miles, of the first rustic road: H=_______

9) The year the first rustic road was dedicated: I=_______

Now add up all of the individual digits from all of the numbers you obtained above: J=_______

The rustic road the box is located on is
number ((C + D + B + G)/E) x (F + H) = _______ (Those are subtraction signs.)
