Goin' South

I brought the entire family with me to take trash to the dump this morning. “Why?” you may ask. Because a mile or so from the landfill is a nature preserve kept by Randolph College, and hiding in that nature preserve are two letterboxes!

It was going to be a quick stop on the way, just off the road. We found the first box rather quickly, but whoever found it last had sealed it improperly and the stamp and logbook had rotted away. This made us all the more determined to find the next box., and so we ventured deeper into the woods. The clues this time were a bit more difficult and vague, and the box was very well-hidden. However, intrepid adventurers that we are, we were able to finally locate the “Goin’ South” box and make it home in time for me to teach class.
