From I-40, take exit 53 and drive east on State Highway 66. This is historic U. S. Highway 66. At mile marker 80 is a bridge over Truxton Wash. Park at the southeast end of the bridge immediately after crossing the bridge.

Near where you park is a moderately large very old dead tree with a small pile of old gray concrete under its southwest side. From there, walk at about 136 degrees (from mag. north) for about 75 steps to a large flat rock (about 2 ½ x 2 feet in size) lying flat on the ground. This flat rock is against a group of upright boulders. The box is hidden on the south side of the flat rock under some rocks and plant debris.

Please be sure the contents are double ziplocked when you put them back in the box (i.e. the stamp is in a ziploc, the book is in a ziploc, and the two are in the larger ziploc bag), and put all of it INSIDE the box. Please rehide the box well under the rocks and plant debris so that it can not be seen from any direction.

I will not be able to check on this box very often; so, please let me know if you find it, or if it is missing or needs attention:

This box is in my “Historic Route 66 Series”. The other boxes in the series are: “Don’t Forget Winona 66 [AZ]”, “Historic Route 66 [AZ]”, “Missouri 66 [MO]”, “Moabi 66 [CA]”, “Moabi 66 - II [CA]”, “Navajo 66 [AZ]”, “New Mexico 66 [NM]”, “Sayre 66 [OK]”, “Texas Route 66 [TX]”, and “Topock 66 [AZ]”.
