This box is part of the Great Lakes LB Group’s 2005 Exchange –
Monty Python’s The Holy Grail.

Before beginning your quest for this box and the Grail please visit the Holy Grail main page (high speed) (dial-up) and read about the specifics of the series and about its special
hitchhiker.

Clues:


Since a boat is what you seek, find the place where boat rentals occur at Wallace Lake in Berea. Leave your steed in the parking lot and begin your quest at “Richard’s Rest.” From here, head south towards the woods. When a doorway to “Danger” rears its ugly head, be like Brave Sir Robin and flee straight ahead, up the dirt path and over the hill.

Cross the field southeast to the pines. At the bench take a rest and a reading of 130°. You’ll see a narrow path. Follow it down, if you dare. It twists and turns, snakes and curves, until you end up at water and a square rock (and perhaps a few dead fish, no doubt victims of the Killer Rabbit!).

Ready to launch? Standing at the square rock, with the rock to your back and water in the front, walk 5 paces to the right. Head up this path. After about 4 paces the path comes to a fork (the right branch may not be noticeable given the time of year). Walk 3 paces along the left branch. Look to your right. See the Siamese Tree? Your vessel is docked here at its base.

If after finding the boat you chose not to sail but to return to your trusty steed instead, head back to the water. Face the path you were just on. Take 3 or 4 steps to your right (towards the square rock). There’s another path that leads straight up to the road and a dirt Bridal Path. Head north on this path back towards your steed.
