Geocache Description:

Cache is not at the posted coordinates. But a scary beastie is.


Aaaaah! Be careful! The treasure you seek is being guarded by the most Dastardly creature in all of Central Park!

THE COCKATRICE!

Avert your eyes! One glance at "the death-darting eye of Cockatrice" and you become a stone monument to your own folly, for all eternity. (The young woman who uttered those words is frozen in stone - and bronze - just a few hundred feet away, at N 40° 46.828 W 073° 58.122).

You must protect yourself from this vile creature! But do not despair - you can avoid certain death yet still navigate to the tree stump you seek. Let us be your guides as you search High and Low, Left and Right...

Alert: You are about to download a file in order to obtain further details needed to find this geocache. As the cache owner, I represent that this file is safe to download although the files needed to complete this geocache have not been checked by Groundspeak or by the Geocache Reviewer for possible malicious content. As a result, you are downloading this file at your own risk. (But judge for yourself... which is riskier? addisonbr? Or The Cockatrice?)

You're looking for an earthy egg just large enough to hold a logbook and a couple of small trade items. (A Cockatrice egg? Maybe!) Early finders get very cool themed geocoins, designed by brltrans (thanks!). I'm also happy to confirm solutions - please contact me through my profile and I'll respond as quickly as I can (usually within hours but often within minutes).
