Geocache Description:

Its a semi-true story
Believe it or not
I made up a few things
And theres some I forgot
But the life and the telling
Are both real to me
And they all run together
And turn out to be
A semi-true story
-Jimmy Buffett

July 8th 1947, an unidentified flying object crashed in Roswell NM. But this was not the only contact that these creatures have made on this planet. The Greys also made contact with the Germans in 1933 and helped them develop rocketry in the hopes of forming a union with them as the Greys wanted to help create a new species as they are genetic engineers and are also looking for a new home as their home planet is in danger of termination by rouge comets. Zeta Reticuli 1 & 2, which is a binary star system visible from the Southern Hemisphere approximately 38 light years away, is the Greys home system.

You may ask why I have filled you in on all this information? It is because I too have had an encounter with the Greys. I was just a child in the 70’s and with the help of my best childhood friend, Mike. We played many hours in these woods. We would build forts with sticks and pretend we were fighting off the enemy in an imaginary war. But, nothing would, or could prepare us for what was about to happen that night.

Our imaginations took us into our usual world of war, fighting off the bad guys. This time we made spears by sharpening the points of sticks with my trusty Swiss army knife that I never seemed to leave at home. Darkness fell, as we were so in tune to our war. The woods seemed darker than normal when we saw a bright flash in the distance. With sharpened spears in hand we walked towards the flash. The woods never seemed so quiet as we crept along the trail. As fast as a new flash of light hit us I was knocked to the ground. Mike was in the grasp of a seven foot tall, grey creature with big bulb like eyes. I struck out at the creature but it was able to dodge my first strike. By the time I was able to jab the spear a second time Mike was bound and gagged by the creature. I wasn’t about to let them take my best friend. I mustered all the energy I had and took another jab at the abdomen of the creature. I pierced the abdomen and it let out a piercing squeal. It focused on me as it relaxed its grip on Mike. I no longer had the makeshift spear, so old trusty had to do the job. The creature reached out for me. I was able to slash its arm with the knife. The creature backed off and flew off in the distance, taking Mike with him. All the fear that was put to the recesses of my mind could not hold off any longer. I ran in the opposite direction and eventually made it home. When I explained this to my Father he just wrote it off as my imagination. But when I showed him the glowing substance on my Swiss Army knife he had no reply. I have been too terrified to return to the woods ever since.

I have never given up on finding Mike as I have researched “The Greys” and have found out that they just want to study humans in an effort to advance their own species. In fact they want to take the best of theirs and our species. I have also learned that the glowing ooze was actually blood from the wounded creature.

Mike is out there somewhere, would you help me find my long lost friend? Or at least get me some answers to his disappearance. You must go at night(Park closes at 11 PM) and take a flashlight to help you get around as the blood only reflects light nowadays. I think if you can chase the trail you might be able to find Mike. I don't think they took Mike past the bridge on the trail. So if you encounter a bridge on the trail after the starting point try again.
