We were doing a walk at Vitruvian Park so I check for a nearby box and found Prickles listed on LBNA. It hadn’t been looked for since 2013 so there wasn’t a good chance we’d find it, but we decided to try. We had trouble with the directions so I’m going to post some clues to help with the search. If you don’t want to know these, click off this blog now.
Park in the athletic field area (32.940205, -96.850375) and walk East on Spring Valley Road. Just past the light at Vitruvian Park turn left on the Addison Fitness Trail. You will eventually come to the piece of art pictured above. Continue going North to the group of bushes on the right.
From there the LBNA directions only say to look behind the wall. This is an area that is 50-60 feet long and the bushes are growing over the wall making it hard to search behind it.
So here is the spoiler.
Go to the North end of the bushes. Turn right and follow the wall back for 10 paces. The box is under the bush on the back side of the wall.
The box has a stamp and a logbook, but they aren’t protected by a plastic bag. I didn’t have a bag with me, but if you look for this box, please take a bag with you to put the stamp and logbook in for extra protection. I was surprised that after two years the box was even there. This is an active path so please be careful to not get caught. There are no nearby benches to sit on, but move away from the hiding area to stamp your logbook and then hide the box back carefully.
