Geocache Description:

Micro container in Meadowmont. Pierce the veil into the n'ether side, this is a simple park, short stroll and grab.

They say foul beings of Old Times still lurk In dark forgotten corners of the world, And Gates still gape to loose, on certain nights, Shapes pent in Hell."

Charlie Watkins was a mysterious character. Nursing his single hand, he was often seen in the oddest locations around Old Meadowmont village, now a sprawling well-manicured neighborhood. A well-documented occasion of this was once when Charlie was found unconscious next to Meadowmont graveyard, flattened into a parking lot for a new UNC health facility. Found by a local seamstress, the prone Watkins was completely unrousable. He was taken down the burgeoning thoroughfare into Chapel Hill towards Memorial Hospital. Whilst traveling in the constable's Ford, Charlie suddenly and violently awoke. By all accounts, he pushed himself into the front seat and forced the car off the road. Out the car he ran, back towards Meadowmont Cemetery. All the while he was screaming unintelligibly (some reported it sounded like Latin).

To this day, the reason for this behavior was not known. The only clue might be the mention of the graveyard in his unfinished third study on the "Awful" (see this link), in which he claims to have found evidence of a North Carolinian sighting of the mythical beast. The "Awful" had alighted on the top of a magnolia tree next to the Cemetery, spotted by a local teenager out hunting deer. He marked the tree for the local constabulary with a black gun casing. Under the light of Halley's Comet, Charlie described how he planted a Pine sapling next to the young Magnolia, as an apparent deterrent to further visits by the "Awful". Where he gleaned this knowledge is not documented.
