Clues:

Start in Miami, Florida. (While you're there, you might just as well go down to the equator and start looking for Matt the Rat's 45th parallel box ;-) ) Take US Hwy 41 from its start through all 8 states it passes through on its way north. After 1990 miles, you'll end up in Copper Harbor, MI. Continue on US 41 northeast past Copper Harbor to the point where US 41 actually ends (past Fort Wilkens SHP). Park in the back of the turn-about behind the sign informing you about US 41. Read the interesting information on the sign, then go behind the sign. From the back of the sign take a bearing of 41 degrees, and walk 41 paces (1 pace = 1 step) on that bearing (Yes! This actually turned out perfect!). You'll just enter the woods on a small trail. At the end of the 41 paces, there will be a "U" shaped tree on your left, with the right half of the "U" broken off a bit. In the wedge of the "U" is a dead log. Look under this dead log and the roots of the "U" tree to find the box!
