Geocache Description:

This cache is placed in a Worth County Conservation park with permission. Park by the front gate and follow the hiking trails. Bushwacking is not necessary until the last 40 yards when you are close to the cache.

Rumor and stories by the locals has it that the woods is haunted. Ochee Yahola was an indian that owned the chunk of land now named Ochee Yahola park. The ground was taken away from him and now he wants revenge. Wierd things happen in the woods and strange noises are often heard. People that hike the trails say that it feels like they are being watched, maybe it is the deer and the squirrels, maybe it is the ghost of Ochee Yahola.

The woods is pretty thick, and has a thick canopy in places to throw your gps off. This might be Ochee Yahola's way to keep you from finding the cache.

The cache is an ammo box that contains the following:
- log book and pen (please sign and write down where you are from and return to cache)
- 1/8 oz. botle of Tabasco Sauce
- 2 wildlife ID books
- USA Dream Team basketball card
- 2 coupons for a free Jr. Whopper at Burger King
- 2 car wash tokens
- magnet
- partial bag of water balloons
- Vanilla Ice Ninja Rap VCR tape



Fall early winter: Wear orange since hunting is allowed in the park
