LOCATION: Valley Forge Nat'l Historical Park, Montgomery County, PA
It has been reported that this box is not here. It has
also been reported that someone may replace it. Still,
there is no reason you can't enjoy the clues and the place,
Today's adventure starts where Revolution
#1: A Walk in the Park, ends, and is somewhat more
From the location of that letterbox, go 22 paces at 184
degrees back to the deadwood. Then, follow a bearing
of 267 degrees to a chef and 3 colonels, where you'll
spy your original start at 150 degrees; thence 310
degrees to an exclosure.
From there, its 300 degrees to where the unknown rests
in peace on the edge of the woods, pass right by another
exclosure (on your left) on the way. Thence 196 degrees
to visit the land of the Jewish people, perhaps stopping
to salute the country you are in at 296 degrees, somewhere
along the way.
Find the trails at 234 degrees and take one south to a
junction, thence due east to visit the memorial to
another past hero nestled amongst the majestic trees,
thence take a bearing of 169 degrees to where X marks
The box obviously isn't here, so take a trail at 214
degrees, soon passing by where one is three and three is one
on the left. Keep on the trail as best you can, fighting
gravity, 'till you can follow the blacktop and keep a bearing
of 138 degrees to where O marks the spot (where the box is not).
Spot a big ol' tulip tree at 208 degrees and some
trails at 100 degrees, taking the right one. Tiptoe
through the tulips 'till you see your first sign of the
river and the mount. Thence stay on a trail east to a
junction where one is four and four is one, thence bear
198 degrees to the Throne. Have a seat in the Throne
and relax for a while in this magical place.
Of course, the box is in this place. Find it in a natural
cubbyhole 17 paces at 142 degrees from where you sit.
