This is a box that Molly and I found a couple of years ago before I ever got into letterboxing. Itsí name was "The Pony Express Box" and was made by "The Saddle Sores Riding Club". It did show somewhat but blended into the background rather well. Fellow hikers would catch a glimpse of it now and then and sign in. It usually got one or two names every other month. One day while walking Molly, I went to check on this box and saw that it had fallen and water got in destroying about everything. I dried out everything, put in a new book, new stamp and also enclosed all the old materials. Itís still is in itsí original container which I really donít like but I have hidden it better in itsí original spot. It still has not been touched by the original owner so I am now listing it. The following are the clues:

Follow directions and go to my "Hampton Reservoir" Letterbox. From that box, take a reading of 305 degrees. Look between 2 trees. It is located in the ledge left of a drill mark in the rock. Please hide and cover it well. The container isnít the greatest. Try to insure that it does not get water in it. Thanks.

Before you set out, please read the waiver of responsibility and disclaimer.
