Original WI Mystery Letterbox
"Much Ado About Nothing"


*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.

The clues to this box were on the old LBNA website, but were pulled off before I could copy them, as the box was missing.  I did have a paper copy of the clues, but I haven't found them in my stash yet, and may have tossed them out.  If you have the clues, please pass them along to me.  Thanks!

Update!  I FOUND THE OLD CLUES!!!!

I'm pretty sure I solved the clues and found the correct spot.  Since the original box was declared missing by the original placer, I did not bother looking for it.  Besides that, some of the landscape has changed affecting the old clues.  I believe the hiding location itself no longer exists.

I therefore took a wild guess at what the stamp image might be and hid a box in the same general location, tweaking the clues as needed...

Location: Wisconsin
Clue Difficulty: Easy
Terrain: Easy

CLUE:                                        "Nature's first green is gold,
                                                    Her hardest hue to hold.
                                                    Her early leaf's a flower,
                                                    But only so an hour..."

Follow directions and signs to parking lot.
Park at the west end of the lot.
There is a signpost arrow that points to the alfresco theater.
But the letterbox is NOT behind this post anymore.
Instead, head towards the chapel on a path of gravel.
Shortly you'll see, a multi-trunked tree (15+).
Search at its back base in its roots under debris.
And hopefully you'll discover this mysterious box.
(Please re-hide the box well.)

Note:  It is probably easier to look for this box during the theater season, but it will remain in place all year.  I do not know whether some of the clues will be available during the off season.

Follow directions and signs to parking lot.
Park at the left end of the lot, and follow upper path
at the back of the parking lot towards the alfresco theater.
On the left side of the path, across from the stop sign,
there is a signpost arrow that points to the theater.
The letterbox is behind this post.

Note:  Look for this box during the theater season, as it may
           be temporarily removed "When leaf subsides to leaf..."
