komickaze Posted December 13, 2013 Share Posted December 13, 2013 There is a tree stump in front of the abandoned apartment building at 4028 E. Portland Street in Phoenix, AZ. Buried at the base of the stump under the root that points northeast (roughly) is a small metal box with a few things me and my friends put in there…25 years ago. We put it deep enough and close enough to the root that it would be difficult for someone to accidentally find unless the tree was pulled up. It's been cut down, but the stump and its roots remain, therefore the box remains. You'll have to dig deep. It took two 11 year olds and a 9 year old a few hours to dig the hole. This box predates geocaching. At the time my friends and I called it just a time capsule. We said we would come and get it when we grew up, but I'm the only one who remembers even burying it (although I don't remember what's inside). None of us live in Phoenix anymore (except for one who I think is in prison) and I want the box retrieved. This is one of the worst neighborhoods in the city. It was bad then and still is. If you decide to go looking for it, you might want to get the permission of the apartment complex management and have a police officer nearby. If you find it, let me know ASAP. And be careful digging. The box has been there for 25 years. Google my name and you'll find how to contact me. Quote Link to comment
