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.

Pilgrim Protists Letterbox
Probably Missing (reported multiple times)

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:

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.
