"You let them out again, Old Man Willow! What be you a-thinking of? You should not be waking. Eat earth! Dig deep! Drink water! Go to sleep! Bombadil is talking!"
-Tom Bombadil, The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
When the 4 hobbits were walking through the Old Forest, Merry was swallowed by Old Man Willow, an evil willow tree. Fortunately for them, Tom Bombadil was passing through that part of the Old Forest and was able to sing the tree back to sleep so that Merry could get out. While Merry was trapped inside the tree and waiting to be pulled out he decided to take the opportunity to hide a geocache. Can you find it? Or are you afraid that Old Man Willow may wake up and trap you inside while you're looking? Take care, Tom Bombadil doesn't often walk through this part of the Old Forest so you may be trapped for a very long time!
Congratulations to Pawn of Chaos for the FTF!
