Ismo Dalgaard Laffybottom: Crow's Nest Letterbox Hybrid

This cache has been archived.

Serrabou: Alas, the crow’s nest itself was felled. The dead tree at the final was still standing so I reached over the orange fence and snagged it. Will attach picture of stamp so the final of the series can be found. Thanks for all of the visits and fps!

Sometimes when fate closes a door, she opens a window. I believe in fate and I believe I was born under a lucky star. Here is my story which explains why I'm filled with boundless optimism in life.

My story starts on a stormy night in the South Pacific aboard the pirate ship Angler's Nightmare, captained by I.D. Laffybottom, who (despite his seemingly comical name) was the meanest most ruthless pirate ever to sail the seas.

I had been sent up to the crow's nest to guide the ship through dangerous straits. No sooner had I clambered up when the captain screeched, "Use yer deadlights, ye lice infested sluggard, or ye'll be fish food!"

Well, I could hardly believe my eyes, as up in the crow's nest etched on a plank of wood was a map to some treasure!
