Geocache Description:

DISCLAIMER: You are seeking this cache on your own accord. Please be mindful that eyes focused ahead overlook holes that twist ankles. Eyes focused down at your feet overlook branches and thorns which will poke and gouge them out. PLEASE do not place trackables or swag in the container. PLEASE replace the container as found.

The cache is NOT at the posted coordinates. The instructions to locate the cache begin below.

Legend of the Chupacabra

(from chupar "to suck" and cabra "goat", literally "goat sucker")

Eyewitness sightings have been claimed as early as 1995. Physical descriptions of the creature vary greatly. Some accounts report the creature walking on all fours with large spikes down its spine. Other accounts report the beast as walking on two legs with huge claws. This creature is regarded as both mythical and extremely dangerous.

A daring cacher, named Hurricanefan, had heard of a sighting of this creature in the nearby woods and decided to hide a cache mocking the mythical qualities of this creature. He had just started to place the cache when he was attacked and dragged into the woods. Seek out this cacher's last known whereabouts and you will most likely see the glow of their eyes in the distance. Follow the trail of the chupacabra to its lair. You will know you are close when you can see the white in their eyes.

Begin at the trail head below. Head East following the utility poles until you discover the sign of the previous GeoCacher. From there you will see the Chupacabra amongst the trees. Follow them until you get close to their lair. There, you will find the clues needed to locate the lost cache of Hurricanefan. You have been warned - Hurricanefan loves a good puzzle.
