The stamp was hand-carved by yours truly.  The coordinates will lead you to a driveway on the left side of Snook Cemetery. You can use the final coordinates to navigate to the box or just follow these letterboxing directions. 

Take the road on the left side of Snook Cemetery that rises at a steep angle. Welcome to Heavenly Hill.  There are several un-kept graves back here. If you have time, do some exploring as some go back to the 1800s.  You will see one fenced in cemetery on your left. Just past that, you will see a gate that says "Heavenly Hill Cemetery" on top.  Go through the gate and walk to the far end of the cemetery. Toward the back left corner, there will be a clump of small-trunked trees.  The boot can be found behind the clump next to the fence under a piece of concrete.  Be sure to re-hide it well and let me know how it's doing.

If you have time, take a look around back here. There are some very old Live Oaks back here. Do watch for poison ivy if you get close to the one on the outside of the fence on the right. Listen to the birds and enjoy the peace and quiet.  If you are in a RV or Big Rig, you can park by the main Snook Cemetery and walk up the hill.

I'm glad my boots were made for walking because I did quite a bit of that today.  Things started off slow as I entered the wrong part of the cemetery, then had to back-track and try a better approach.  Once the GPSr zeroed things went much better.  Cache was in good shape and the log now bears my mark.  TFTC!
