Letterboxes of Madison, Wisconsin (3)
All Madison boxes were reported to be missing by their owners.
I hope to restore them someday if possible.

*I'll be very happy to give any of these boxes back to their original owners upon request.  I have only adopted these boxes for upkeep and historical means and do not count them among my planted boxes.

Majestic Theatre - Rocky Horror Picture Show tribute  Missing!!

Majestic Theater       This box reported missing Feb. 2001.
Madison, WI - Dane Coutny

Clue Difficulty: Easy
Terrain: Easy

Directions: Proceed to the Capitol Square, the area immediately around the Wisconsin State Capitol Building.  All roads seem to lead to it, and you can see the Capitol from just about anywhere in the city.

Clue: It's not polite to talk behind someone's back, but Hans Heg won't mind if you look for the letterbox hidden behind his left shoulder near a trio of evergreen trees.

This Letterbox is part of the Madison Tribute Series to commemorate the closing of the almost 100 year old Majestic Theater, and the end of the Rocky Horror Picture Show's 21 year run at said theater.

Original Post on LBNA:

Hi all,
Last night I placed a letterbox as part of Deborah's Madison Tribute Series to commemorate the closing of the almost 100 year old Majestic Theater, and the end of the Rocky Horror Picture Show's 21 year run at said theater.

Majestic Theater & Rocky Horror Picture Show Letterbox
Difficulty: Easy
Terrain: Easy
Directions: Proceed to the Capitol Square, the area immediately
around the Wisconsin State Capitol Building. All roads seem to lead
to it, and you can see the Capitol from just about anywhere in the city.

won't mind if you look for the letterbox hidden behind his left
shoulder near a trio of evergreen trees.

Good luck!

Madison Tribute Series (2) - Turville Point Conservation Park 
BOTH BOXES REPORTED MISSING IN ACTION BY OWNER 08/17/02

Letterbox #1 - David Lewis Crosby

Old Clues:

Turville Point Conservation Park
East Olin Drive, Madison WI

This letterbox is dedicated to the memory of
David Lewis Crosby of the Madison Chamber Orchestra,
in gratitude for the magic he created at Madison's
Concerts on the Square.

The parking lot for the conservation park is to
the south of the main entrance of Olin Turville Park.
The trail heads east from the parking lot.

Clues:
Follow the main trail from the parking lot about 1/10th mile
to the first major fork in the trail. (There is a trail that splits
off before this, but the main trail heads due east.) Take the fork
to the left.
At the next fork in the trail (about 2/10th mile from start),
take the trail going to the right.
The trail meanders along the lake to the left and sometimes
into the woods to the right. Eventually you will walk through
a large stand of trees ~ the path goes through this stand to
the left back towards the lake.
About  mile from the start of the trail, you will see a tiny
short footpath leading up to a view of the lake. At the top of this
path is a ring of stones and the tall jagged remains of a
fire-charred tree. After admiring the skyline view of central
Madison, which includes the State Capitol where the
Concerts on the Square take place, turn and look
inside the tree for the letterbox.
Notes:
Turville Point Conservation Park is about .5 mi. north
from the John Nolan Drive exit off Hwy 12-18, turn right
on East Olin Avenue from John Nolan Drive.
If you’d like to bike, the trail is about 2 miles from
Williamson Bicycle Works, which is at the other end of
John Nolan Drive. This store rents bikes and other
equipment, and the bike path practically leaves from
their door! The park allows no bikes, though I presume
it would be fine to walk them through.
Finally did it!
Color me jazzed!
