In the event you did not already know this, letterboxing involves turning off the television, getting off the couch, gathering the basic human necessities to survive for a few hours away from a refrigerator, and wandering off into the woods. This includes, at a MINIMUM, one protein-bar per hour per person, one liter of water per hour per person, a functional compass, an emergency radio beacon, and a map of the area you intend to occupy. You should also consider a first aid kit, an extra set of warmer clothing, a pocket-knife or utility tool, a GPS receiver, a cell-phone, and pepper-spray. Carefully observing the above will maximize, but not insure, your chances of returning home intact. Ignoring it can, and eventually will, get you lost, hurt, and or dead. Prepare yourself properly, and consider yourself warned.

Blue's Hill (1 box)
06/20/2004, reported sort-of missing (a critical part of the clue has changed)

Due to the size of the clue to this box (just under half of a megabyte), we have created this cover-page. Both images from the full clue that will help you locate the Blue's Hill Letterbox appear above. None of the other images will help you before you actually begin the hike itself. We would ask that, out of consideration for the generous donor of our bandwidth, visitors refrain from loading the full clue until they have "solved" the clue and know where to go for the box.

If you have already figured out the general location of this box, feel free to proceed to the full clue. We have formatted it to print neatly on four pages, and verified that it does so under both MSIE and Netscape.
