That's Amazing ! box went missing up in Crescent City all the way up near the Oregon border.
Road Trip with Huell, this box went missing somewhere in Santa Barbara
I am starting a new box with a new carve to keep the Huell spirit alive.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
This will be a traveling box that will go around only in California. Please take the box with you to a new Huell location.
If you do not want to move the box to a new location, log in and leave it where you found it.

Huell Howser was a California icon, he passed away on January 7th 2013. I love watching his CALIFORNIA GOLD program on television, he took us to so many unique places. Since Huell traveled all over California I decided to make another box in his honor. This will be a traveling box that will go around only in California. Hopefully it will be left in the places that Huell did stories on. He visited a lot of places so it won't be difficult to find a location near you. One of the places he did a story on was where this box will start at is Fosselman's Ice Cream in Alhambra open since 1919 and it's still owned by the same family. To find out where Huell went on his adventures check out www.HuellHowserArchive.com or www.issigis.com/ThatsAmazing/. The AAA auto club just came out with a Huell Howser California Gold map, it's free for members. It does not include every single place that Huell has been to but it's still a great map.

WHERE THE BOX HAS BEEN

New clues by Desert Flower:
Amboy Crater
California’s Gold (Ep 410)
This has always been a favorite location of ours in the Mohave Desert! And along our route today.

Turn off 66 at the large sign & park by the sign,
“Amboy Crater National Natural Landmark”
16700 Crater Road, Amboy CA

From the S edge of the sign walk approx 60 steps due W (270*) to a creosote bush.
The box is tucked in between the roots, with a rock securing it in place.

Let me know if you need any additional info. Signs indicate first eruption was 10,000 yo.

UPDATES
PLEASE hide it in a location where it won't be easily found by a muggle. It doesn't have to be right where Huell was, it can be somewhere nearby. Once the box is moved to a new Huell location (hopefully a dry spot) please email me with the information so I can update the clues. IF YOU HAVE TO BURY THE BOX PLEASE PUT ENTIRE BOX INSIDE A PLASTIC BAGGY SO IT WONT GET ALL DIRTY. If you are unable to move the box to a new Huell location, just log in and leave it where it is.
