Update to this Quest

This quest originally appeared in Valley Quest II:75 More Treasure Hunts. It was revised and included in Best of Valley Quest. If you are using Valley Quest II you will need this new ending to a beautiful Quest: (replace the last 2 paragraphs with this):  Ahead there are two poles…like an inverted V.  And climbing up hill to the right, a barbed wire fence line.  At the base of the pole just before these? A Valley Quest box to find. Open up the box: a notebook. Patiently linger: see what you see, Please record your discoveries faithfully.
