OTHER VIRGINIA BOXES

LOBLOLLY LETTERBOX
A letterbox was planted in Staunton River State Park in Scottsburg, Virginia, on October 10, 2002. The closest town is Scottsburg. The largest cities to Scottsburg are South Boston and Danville. On weekdays, park admission is $2. On weekends and holidays, it is $3.

Because this box is an orphan, please drop me a note about its condition at mlgainey@yahoo.com. This box does not contain a pencil.

Once inside the park, park in the lot near the playgrounds, the pool, and the tennis courts.

Take the Tutelo Trail.

At the picinic area, walk toward the shelter.

Walk behind the shelter.

Pick up the River Bank Trail.

At the bottom of the first small hill that you walk down are areas of fallen trees on both sides of the trail.

The box is hidden in the fallen tree closest to the path on the right side of the trail. The box is covered with bark inside the tree. Please recover with bark.

Crack the code used to compose all of the lines below. Some of the lines contain words that may very well tell you specifically where the boxes can be found in the metro Richmond area. Hint: They're in a park. :)

As always, please recover or rehide both boxes completely from view after stamping in.
