Presumed Dead, Part I: Crossed Paths
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Part one of a three-cache series. BRING PAPER AND PENCIL, and park where suggested. See notes below. Please do not post spoilers in your logs.
While reading the paper one day, a strange story catches your attention:
You pause, then read the description of this Oremor character again - big bald guy with a limp and an accent. Could it be? You remember geocaching in the area not too long ago (another DNF) and passing just such a strange person on a trail. He barely acknowledged you as he hobbled past, and seemed to be in his own world, mumbling to himself the whole time while clutching a small parcel to his chest.
Feeling a bit uneasy after the encounter, (you have got to remember to pick up a can of Pepper Spray one of these days, just in case) you looked back over your shoulder to make sure the weirdo wasn’t following you. Thankfully, the stranger continued on his way, moving towards rougher terrain. Cautiously you followed and watched from a distance. Eventually he stopped, dropped to his knees, and started chanting something that you couldn’t quite understand. You decided to get out of there, as the situation was becoming a bit too creepy – something was wrong here.
For the next few days you stuck to Park and Grab hides while the willies subsided, and eventually you had forgotten about the whole episode. Until now, that is.
Putting down the newspaper, you power up your GPSr. Should you go back to that spot and have a look around to see what that Oremor guy was up to? Dang! You erased your Track Logs! Now you’ll have to trace your steps back through the woods to find the spot where this strange event happened.
Where is Gustav Oremor? Why did he disappear without a trace? What was he up to in the woods on that fateful day? It’s up to you to find out!
BE SURE TO BRING PAPER AND PENCIL WHEN YOU SEEK THIS CACHE! At the final stage of this Multi, you will find the missing coordinates needed for the next cache in the series: Presumed Dead, Part II: Libri Pestis. This is a two-stage multi. Cache one is an orange match holder, while the final is a modified Lock&Lock container about 5" square. Total round trip should be +/- .5 mile
Suggested parking for this Multi is at N 41° 18.244 W 073° 27.447, near the cul-de-sac on 'Old Stone Ct' in Ridgefield, where there is a trailhead. Resist the urge to pull off on Rt.7, as deep curbside ruts and the high traffic could make doing so dangerous!
Nominated as a Top Pick from the CTCachers.com Website in the 'Series' Category.
