Insert the numbers/words from the problems above into their corresponding
lettered blanks in the following clues, then go and find the box!
To find the park, find the intersection of Park Avenue and North ______ (A)
Avenue in West Bend. This will be near ______________________ (B).
Turn into the park entrance across from this intersection. Once you're
there, park on the west side of the parking lot and take the wide major trail
that heads west. Go to picnic area #______ (C). Stand on the south
side of the picnic post. Face ______ (D) degrees and walk about ______ (E)
paces. You should be in another picnic area (don't get eaten by ants!).
Stand on the SE side of the pole and walk in a SE direction until you reach the
building with _____ (F) sides.
Once you get to the building, take the number of pillars and divide it by 2, and
go to that picnic site. To get there, follow the path on the south side of
the building you are at and follow it west.
Find the trail between that picnic site and picnic site ______ (G). Go up
this trail into the woods! At the first fork in the trail take the trail
at 255 degrees. At the next fork, turn to _____ (H) degrees, and walk a few
paces and stop when you are in the middle of the intersection of 5 paths. Turn
and walk down the left trail. After 75 paces another trail comes to join
it from the right (ignore the offshoot you passed to the right leading to an
exercise spot). Go left then a quick right (after 8 more paces). The
trail narrows. After a while, take the trail as it heads left downhill.
Walk over the large root in the path, then the other smaller roots as the path
continues to go downhill and left. Pass the large "V" tree on your right
at the bottom of the downhill, go over the tree across the path and stop at the
tree on the left visited by JB in '89 and Mander in '77. From there, take
110 more steps down the trail. There, on your left, you should spot
another "V" tree. The box is in the "V".
