This is a Hitchhiker Hostel. That means you should always leave a hitchhiker here. If you don't have a hitchhiker to drop off, you can still visit the box, but you're supposed to leave the hitchhiker there for someone who can make an exchange. There are two logbooks, one for hitchhiker stamps, and one for personal stamps.

NOTE 1:  There is something intensly curious about this arrangement. You don't have to figure it out to find the box, but it is fun nonetheless, and certainly an opportunity worth exploring for future boxious mischief ...

NOTE 2:  Off-trail walking is involved.

NOTE 3:  Be wary of snakes and other wildlife when reaching into dark places. No need to dig for this box. All bearings magnetic unless otherwise noted. A pace is a long stride counted on a footfall of either foot, i.e. two paces are counted each time the right foot hits the ground. Be aware of if or when there is game hunting in the area.

NOTE 4:  Please re-hide the thing well just as you found it.
