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.
YOU SHOULD NOT CONSIDER THIS A SAFE ACTIVITY!

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.
