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.

From 44E into Plymouth, turn right onto RT 3A. Follow 3A out
of Plymouth proper and continue with the water on your left
until "Berts" looms high on your left, black on
white. Turn left before "Berts" into the lot for
Plymouth Beach. Turn left onto the dirt/sand/gravel lot and
drive or walk as far as you can go.
From the "do and don't" sign note the long rock barrier
separating the beach from the "road" and river/salt
marsh. Climb to the crest of this "breakland" and
walk a few hundred meters. Soon you will see a rock below you
with a large, abnormal white vein running through it.
Check for the following compass headings:
- mostly aluminum windmill lies at 322°
- small white lighthouse in distance at 40°
- sandy point at 106°
- "do and don't" sign at 174°
On the saltmarsh / "road" side of the
"breakland" will be a of collection of
grey-green stones with white speckles. Peek in
the cave formed by the largest grey-green/white
speckled stone and two very large pieces of pink
granite with black flecks.
