How Geocaching Works

Geocache Description:

"There are few who would deny at what I do I am the best, for my talents are renowned far and wide.
When it comes to surprises in the moonlit night I excel without ever even trying.
With the slightest little effort of my ghostlike charms I have seen grown men give out a shriek.
With the wave of my hand and a well-placed moan I have swept the very bravest off their feet."

That is a verse from 'Jack's Lament', sung by Jack Skellington in The Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack is one of my favorite Halloween characters ever, and I have wanted to put out a cache in his honor for some time.

For those of you not in the know, Jack is the ruler of Halloween Town, a place where the residents work year-round creating new frights to unleash upon the world every October 31st.

Jack the Pumpkin King has taken some time from his busy schedule to pay us a visit, and he has even bought a gift along. It would be most unwise of you not to return the favor...

Cache Notes:
Park at the end of Pent Road in Weston – see waypoint. For the easiest approach head towards Trail Marker #29 from the parking lot. Bear left there, and head up the trail until you see any half-clear opening in the Laurel. Please respect this beautiful preserve, and consider making a donation to The Nature Conservancy. In addition, a trail map can be downloaded here.
