Not a fan of walking sticks myself but I think I"d appreciate one in that situation.The second line of the deed quoted above says:
North 25 degrees 35 minutes West 1796.56 feet to an old stone
This location is on the West side of the pond off of Stephenson road shown at the link below. However, it is in the area west of the pond that did not burn making it somewhat of a challenge to get to.
We decided to cross the stream further North and bypass crossing at the pond. Upon arriving at our location on Stephenson we heard hound dogs barking nearby and soon a man and one of the dogs emerged from the woods. The man explained the dog was a pup and did not follow the rest of the crew. Very shy.

Then off we went looking for the stone. The going was easy until the last 900 feet. And we wasted our time because it is either not there or underground.
We did on our way there find a wooden bridge by the back of the pond and found an easier way back. There actually is a small cedar swamp there which you may want to check out. I would also try and cross the bridge and visit the other side. A nice place to relax and explore.

It has been one year tomorrow since Bob, Jessica and myself visited the old tuck out there, and earlier in the morning Jessica and I went there again.
Here is a Then & Now from last year and this year.
