Geocache Description:

The Hook Man

An Urban Legend

A teenage boy drove his date to a dark and deserted Lovers' Lane. After turning on the radio for mood music, he leaned over and began kissing the girl.
A short while later, the music suddenly stopped and an announcer's voice came on, warning in an urgent tone that a convicted murderer had just escaped from the state insane asylum — which happened to be located not far from Lovers' Lane — and that anyone who noticed a strange man lurking about with a hook in place of his right hand should immediately report his whereabouts to the police.
The girl became frightened and asked to be taken home. The boy, feeling bold, locked all the doors instead and, assuring his date they would be safe, attempted to kiss her again. She became frantic and pushed him away, insisting that they leave.

Relenting, the boy peevishly jerked the car into gear and spun its wheels as he pulled out of the parking space.
When they arrived at the girl's house she got out of the car, and, reaching to close the door, began to scream uncontrollably. The boy ran to her side to see what was wrong and there, dangling from the door handle, was a bloody hook.

Now that you know the tale of Hook Man. I offer you this challenge. A chance if you will, to decided for yourself if this urban legend is fact or fiction.
Because I say, that I have found the Hook Man's Lair and he has been very busy as of late and in finding his lair I did discover that he has a considerably nice treasure to offer to those who aren't too afraid to go in after it. BEWARE though, if the Hook Man comes home while, shall we say uninvited guest are radding his treasure chest you may find that he want to in a very good mood. So be careful and try not to end up like those you may find lying around the area.

I have list the coordinates for you as close to the actual cache as possible. Although you are still about 15 feet from touching the cache. What's that noise? I believe someone is in the house with me. No, No it couldn't be.
Yes, I think.....    I'm sorry but, I fear for my safety and must leave before giving all the information that I wanted too but, I leave you this clue and if you do decided to go after this treasure be careful.
 Clue: Follow the water back to the zero point of your GPS.

No, No, WAIT, Noooo.......... He's.............
