Here is a letterbox that requires you to visit the USAF Museum (free)
and use a GPS among the outdoor exhibits. Plan 2 hours or so to
this one. Fair warning: I believe this one may be nearly impossible
unless you or someone with you has a GPSR.
START this fun by going to the USAF Museum. I'd suggest
the small parking lot at N 39 46.974 W 84 06.508. If you have never
been to the museum, this is your chance to explore some of the
exhibits. It takes about a day to look at the displays inside. For
this geocache/letterbox, you will concentrate on the outdoors
exhibits where a GPS works.

NEXT STEP: Go to the parking coordinates for a nearby park.
47.135 W 84 08.006) and then find the cache at N 39 47.XXX and W 84
Have fun. If you use some common sense (which is not very common) you
need not leave the paths until you get within 30 feet of the cache.
Hint: When you reach the obstruction on the path, there is a forked
tree to the east. The cache is under a small locust tree (thorns)
fifteen feet further east.
