Clues:

Begin chanting,

"Pie Iesu domine, dona eis requiem.
Pie Iesu domine,...
...dona eis requiem.
Pie Iesu domine,...
...dona eis requiem"(it mayest best help to club thyself about the head to clear one's mind but not whilst one drives an automobile).

Whether thou is accustomed to the horribile flagellum or ferula, the pilgrim needs take Interstate 88 to the Annie Glidden Exit North.

From therest, the sojourner travels right on Fairview, keeping in mindst the sufferings of the Hebrew peoples in Exodus 5:14: "And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh's taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, [and] demanded, Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and to day, as heretofore?"

 Turning left on First street and then taking the first right into the cemetery, the flagellant shall recallest Roboam's threat, "My father beat you with whips, but I will beat you with scorpions" (2 Chronicles 10:14)

Head east through the cemetery. Recall and repeat the words, "Pie Iesu domine, dona eis requiem," or ("O sweet Lord Jesus, grant them rest; grant them everlasting rest," should your Latin be rusty. You should continuest east to the "Holy Bible"

Behind the good book showeth your "devotion" by walking directly east 18 paces. Do not be diverted by thoughts of Proverbs 26:3 that speak of a "whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool's back." Your penitential trek toward the cache shall require focus and nerve.

From the crimson sign reading, "Cemetery closes from dusk to dawn," walk north to the large pine tree. And I meanest pine tree ...NOT A SHRUBBERY, knave! A pine tree. No pilgrim here needeth holy hand grenades, nor flight of the sparrow, nor spanking of damsels named Zoot. Only steadfastness and purity need sustain thee.

Walketh 25 paces east along the forest line. Do not frettest over the hare and squirrel of the glade since the cave of Caerbannog lies far away. From the small "No dumping sign" (sign is now missing) walk thou northeasterly 4 paces into the woods. Lookest carefully for the Black Knight. If he does not appear to challenge thy progress, examine the palm of 5 fingers growing out of the ground. Therein, one may find the treasured relic and complete the pilgrimage.

Amen
