Find Sleeping Meadows in the miniature cemetery. Go to Sleeping Meadows.

Look at the letters under Charlie Wicker's Name. Use blank paper to get a tracing of the directions.

Enter at right to the forest. See an overhead view of the area.

Using the directions on the tracing, click on the compass central button to move the spade.

Once a direction is reached, count the fingers of the skeleton to know how many times to move to that direction. Just follow the first number that the skeleton hand show, it might be erroneous after that (tricksy!).

For example: Click the compass to west, see the hand raise 4 fingers. Move by pressing the move button to west 4 times, change the compass by clicking on the cardinal direction to the next direction, see the hand raise 2 fingers; move to that direction twice and so on...

W-4, N-2, E-1, S-3, W-2, N-2, W-3, S-3, E-1, N-2, E-1, N-3, E-4, S-5, W-2.
