Clues:

(Note: Box was found by Dragon in pretty poor conditions.  The box is intact and in a temporary place while FW makes a new box.  Be advised the clues may change when the new box is in place.)


Sir Galahad: 'Sire, sire! We've got another lead on what may finally be the location of the Holy Grail!'

King Arthur: 'Ah, a blessing from the Lord! Gather the others and the coconuts. Lets go!'

[clip clop, clip clop]

Sir Lancelot: 'The map that I've acquired shows the object of our quest to be between the kingdom of Manitowoc and the hamlet of Two Rivers. We must follow 'Memorial Drive' to a small roadway called 'Woodland Drive'.'

Arthur: 'Yes. I believe that a house of healing is right near there as well. Sir Robin can finally get those bone spurs taken care of.'

[clip clop, clip clop]

Onward rode our gallant knights, following the 'Woodland Dunes' trail sign.

Sir Robin: 'There! On the right. Hmmm...no stables.'

Arthur: 'Just tie the horses up on the side of the road in front of the trail head.

Galahad: 'But which trail leads to the Grail?!'

Tim the Enchanter: 'You wunt be findin' any Grail in there, poppets!

Lancelot: 'Nonsense! The map is quite auth....

Tim: 'What you be findin' in that blasted swamp is the meanest beast that the creator put...

Arthur: 'Which trail, Tim!!'

Tim: 'The yellow one, of course, ya blimey *#/@'

Arthur: 'What did you say?'

Tim: 'Head west I say, and follow the wooden path - it doesn't matter which way you go - you wunt be comin' back...

Arthur: 'What did you say?'

Tim: 'I say the trail circles around itself, at the fork it doesn't matter which way you go!'

So on foot with watertight leggings our intrepid heroes traveled along the wooden path. Soon they came to a landing with benches on either side.

Lancelot: 'There, on a northwest heading. a tree with scrolling bark. Just as the map revealed.'

Robin: 'What do you mean? Down there? In the marshy fog? Don't you think someone should go back with the steeds...'

Galahad: 'Come on then! We will have this quest wrapped up by tea time!'
 

Picking their way with all due caution, the band reaches the aforementioned foliage. Standing on the high side...
 

Lancelot: 'On the high side of the tree take a bearing due west of 240ish degrees.'

Robin: 'What do you mean "-ish"? It is either 240 degrees or 241 degrees or 239 degrees, but it can't be "-ish"!'

Arthur: 'Sshisshhh...listen...

Galahad: 'Sire, the stump. up ahead about 27 paces.

Robin: 'That stump looks evil. You go first, I'll keep watch on your backside.'

Our shining knights slowly approach the stump...
What was that?..
Who?....
Aaaaaggggghhhh!!!!......

The rabbit chased the knights around the area and finally back up the stairs to the deck.  The rabbit remains on guard hiding under the steps in a concrete block.  Do you really want to stick your hand in there???!!!

Enjoy the search and there is a donation pole at the trailhead if you are so inclined. Also, depending on the time of year the area is pretty wet, which means mosquitoes.  Oh, and possibly poison ivy.
