We were headed out to East Texas to do a volksmarch in Kilgore. I discovered there were five treasures along the proposed walk route and another out in a cemetery. There were also several in a park, but we didn’t have time to look for them.
We looked for “Silkwood” in Danville Cemetery before registering for the volksmarch. It has a fascinating story. One I don’t remember ever hearing on our local news.
We found this box and I also left a box of my own in the cemetery. We went to the City Park to register and then looked for “Van Cliburn”.
We didn’t find this one. We continued out on the walk. When we arrived at the Railroad Depot we searched for “World’s Richest Acre”. Once again we were disappointed. We did find a TV hidden in the bushes!
The walk continued on and we came to the Veteran’s Memorial where we looked for “UNO”.
The clue stated to look at the fourth big rock. We tried the fourth rock from the monument. No luck. So we tried the fourth rock from the entrance. No luck there either.
We continued our volksmarching event and entered City Cemetery where we looked for “East Texas Oil Museum”.
Our luck improved. We not only found it but there was a Hitchhiker named “Peace” hidden there too. We finished our stamping and headed back on the volksmarch.
The next box to look for on the walk route was “Rangerettes”. Unfortunately some of the bushes have been cut. We looked around but found nothing.
The last box to look for along the walk route was “Shakespeare in Kilgore”. It was hidden in Shakespeare Park. We found the bushes it was supposed to be hidden in appeared to be dead. We found a plastic bag ripped with no cover with a soggy logbook. The stamp was there. I put the stamp in a new box in a new bag with a new logbook. I put the box in the branches of the box so the clues would fit but it was in plane sight as the bush had no leaves.
So I collected four stamps. We had a good day.
