Fisher Scientific, founded in 1902, was a biotechnology company that provided products and services to the global scientific research and United States clinical laboratory markets. Its customers included pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies, colleges, universities, schools, medical research, hospitals, labs and research & development laboratories. The company offered more than 600,000 products and services to over 350,000 customers located in approximately 150 countries.

In May 2006, Fisher Scientific and Thermo Electron merged and the company is now called Thermo Fisher Scientific. Although TFS is no longer at this location, I have left the box in this location.

You need to know how to use a compass to find this stamp!

Please bring  BLUE  and  BLACK  inks with you for this stamp.

In Morris Plains, you need to find 500 American Road.
When you do, park near the fire hydrant that is near the wood fence.

So I went to check on this box recently after a couple boxers were unable to find it. I am very happy to report that the box is still there and in good condition. However, the clues REALLY needed to be updated...

Enter the woods on the path to the left of the wood fence. Follow the path past the rusting car (that is no longer there I'm sad to say, it was pretty cool) to the left and the depression on your right (there may or may not be a small pond there). At the gravel path, turn right. Go approximately 35 steps and stop. Look up to the left and see a large 4-trunk tree...which is now a 3-trunk tree, having one of the trunks fall off down the hill. Find your way to the tree.

From the white rock behind the tree, sight approximately 360* (or is it 0*?) to the curved trunk of a 6" diameter tree. Under the curve of the trunk you will see a rock about 2' in diameter. Behind it and under a flat rock and leaves you will find a Lock'n'Lock type box (Good Cook not Snapware).

Please double-bag the logbook and hide the box better than how you found it!

Record your find at LbNA and/or AQ.
