Geocache Description:

Localize o Coronel Kurtz e ponha termo ao seu comando. O Coronel foi visto pela última vez na zona das coordenadas indicadas. Esta missão é longa e arriscada. Comece cedo. Boa sorte!
Find Colonel Kurtz and terminate his command. He was last seen in the given coordinates area. This is a long and risky mission. Start early. Good luck!

"Vi-o estender a curta barbatana que era o seu braço para fazer um gesto que abarcou a floresta, o ribeiro, a lama, o rio – parecendo invocar, com um aceno de desprezo perante a face ensolarada da paisagem, um pérfido apelo à morte que espreita, ao mal escondido, à profunda escuridão do coração da terra."
Joseph Conrad, 1857-1924, "Heart of Darkness"

Coronel Lucas: A sua missão consiste em subir o Rio Nung num barco patrulha da Marinha. Localize a pista do Coronel Kurtz em Nu Mung Ba, siga-a e reúna todas as informações que puder durante o percurso. Quando encontrar o Coronel, infiltre-se na sua equipa usando quaisquer meios que julgue necessários e ponha termo ao comando do Coronel.
Willard: Pôr termo... ao Coronel?
General Corman: O Coronel dirige operações sem qualquer tipo de controlo, ultrapassando largamente o aceitável em termos de conduta humana. E continua a comandar tropas em campo.
Civil: Pôr termo de uma forma definitiva.
Coronel Lucas: Compreenderá, Capitão, que esta missão não existe, nem nunca existirá.
Francis F. Coppola, "Apocalypse Now"

"I saw him extend his short flipper of an arm for a gesture that took in the forest, the creek, the mud, the river – seemed to beckon with a dishonouring flourish before the sunlit face of the land a treacherous appeal to the lurking death, to the hidden evil, to the profound darkness of its heart."
Joseph Conrad, 1857-1924, "Heart of Darkness"

Colonel Lucas: Your mission is to proceed up the Nung River in a Navy patrol boat. Pick up Colonel Kurtz's path at Nu Mung Ba, follow it and learn what you can along the way. When you find the Colonel, infiltrate his team by whatever means available and terminate the Colonel's command.
Willard: Terminate the Colonel?
General Corman: He's out there operating without any decent restraint, totally beyond the pale of any acceptable human conduct. And he is still in the field commanding troops.
Civilian: Terminate with extreme prejudice.
Colonel Lucas: You understand Captain that this mission does not exist, nor will it ever exist.
Francis F. Coppola, "Apocalypse Now"
