On this full moon walk, Brandon and I went on a letter box search in town. I found out today that there were a half dozen letterboxes placed within walking distance of our homes. Why not add the hunt to the evening walk? Brandon took along his buddy Nate and off we went.
The photos were taken by flashlight in the overgrown box location that was once a baseball field for the Atlas Tack nail factory. Atlas Tack is a super fund sight that has the following paragraph on the government "scorecard"
The groundwater is contaminated with CYANIDE and TOLUENE that leached from the site lagoons. The on-site soil is contaminated with VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOCS), including TOLUENE and ethyl benzene; HEAVY METALS, including CHROMIUM, CADMIUM, LEAD, and nickel; pesticides; POLYCHLORINATED BIPHENYLS (PCBS); and polycyclic aromatic HYDROCARBONS (PAHS). Trespassers are at risk through direct contact with contaminated soil or ingestion of shellfish in the area
Nice. But we did find the box and signed ourselves as "amidnightrider and the kid"
This may become a regular offering in my travels. Looking up clues, finding and signing into letterboxes.
