Listen, you.  I've built this clue up from nothing.  When I started trying to hide this box, it had been orphaned in McHenry County.  All the kings said I was daft to try and rehide it there, but I hid it all the same, just to show 'em.  It had to be removed.  So, I found a new spot, and wrote a second clue.  That box sank into the Des Plaines River.  So I built a new box, and wrote a third clue.  That got lost,       got found again, then had a geocache placed just six inches away from it.  But the fourth one stayed in place.  An' that's what your gonna get, lad -- the most resilient letterbox in these islands…

So get yourself to the village of Gurnee, in the county of Loch.  There, on Washington Street, find Warren Township Park.  Drive in off Almond Road, and drive on, past the fields and fences, through the woods, and on to a place where your horses might rest for a bit.

 Find “F”, and journey westward on the white path.

 4 on your left, when wood meets stone.

 Turn right, then stay left.

 Walk toward an obvious resting place, and stay on the trail.

 5 on your right, until wood and stone are reunited.

 North on the white path, to a point where east meets west, and you can go no further.

From there, use that magnetic direction thingy to find 190 degrees.  Walk 48 steps, and find what ye seek in the center of a hollow log.
