  1. RR03 is a huge custom box with sliding lid, at about 7500 feet, in the GPS route ROARING RIVER.

  2. Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, Aug 2003:
    One box at the end of a use trail south of the Roaring River Ranger Station and 30 yards west of Roaring River itself. Perhaps 50 yards up-canyon from the Ranger Station there is a junction marked 'Deadman Canyon' to the right, with a use trail to the left. Follow the use trail to a vague but large campsite with a coffin-style metal box (the lid slides aside and you set your food into it). This box is about a tenth of a mile southeast from the ranger station, and there is a significant hump between it and the Deadman Canyon trail.

  3. Directions from Ranger Catie at the Roaring River Ranger Station, Aug 1999:
    One box about a quarter of a mile upstream from the ranger station along the Roaring River (not on the Deadman Pass trail).

  4. Directions from Mineral King ranger info sheet, dated 1991:
    One big box 200 yards south of Lackey Cabin on the west side of the river.
