Geocache Description:

The Trap

Landscape Small Puzzle Cache

You certainly remember my adventures following the Man in Dark, the map I found leading to Bright Stars and that you have beenLost in the Dark nearby. This is yet another time you encounter an object placed by our "friends" in Dark.
Well, I am due to report that they have decided to place this Geocache themselves!


Please - I beg you - please, do not go out and search this Cache!

It seems our extraterrestrial "friends" are on an investigative mission again: This time you are the target!
Well, you might say: This is not new. They have done this before in Dark Bars.
Then they just "invited" me to stay at their place until somebody kind enough came to rescue.

However, this time they want to study the sub-species Geocacher in situ.
This means, you will have to undergo the most cruel and torturing procedures to satisfy their curiosity.
The good news is that your body will not suffer any harm.
The contrary is the case for your mind!
This is why this cache is so dangerous!

Do not let yourself be deceived by the nice area, the hospitable playground and nice picnic facilities nearby.
You can only end up like the person on the picture below. There is no escape!

This is how you end up!

You might be even forced to come back to this tormenting place for further investigations.
And when you think that you have everything that is needed to fulfil your task, you will realise that something is wrong and does not quite work as indicated.
Then stay focused. The error is only minor. Repeat the procedures - shake after every step - eventually you will succeed.

Be gentle. Everything is working fine.
No need to force anything! If it only opens a tiny bit - but not further - then you have not completed all steps of your study yet.
Finally, if you have been studied enough will be granted access to the Logbook.
Only the ones who have demonstrated in writing that they survived the curiosity of our "friends" in Dark will be listed below.
Please do not forget to close as stated in the procedures.
Please seal the box properly again in its plastic bag to avoid degradation (i.e. getting stuck) due to humidity.

You have been warned!

Don't do it!

PS: Do not attempt this cache without having the proper instructions how to open it with you (they are not in the cache)!
