**THIS GEOCACHE IS HIDDEN ON LAND AND DOES NOT REQUIRE WADING, SWIMMING, OR ANY TYPE OF WATER TRAVEL TO ACCESS!**

The Loch Ness Swampster (no relation to the Loch Ness Monster) has been guarding this geocache for thousands of years.  Will you be a brave adventurer and unlock the mystery of The Loch Ness Swampster's legendary geocache?

---------------------

As hinted in its name, this geocache is the rebirth of the first geocache I hid back in 2007.  That cache was last found in 2009, and was subsequently archived in 2011.

Cut to today.  The year is 2019.  (I was told by the Reviewer that the old cache can no longer be un-archived for some reason, so here we are.)

The story begins to unfold...

Almost 10 years have passed since the Swampster's last sighting.  Records of past encounters have faded from memory, and tales of the murky monster are regarded as no more than folklore.  Mother ducks and their ducklings have taken residence over the still waters, where they delight in feasting on a film of neon-green algea.

The swamp is quiet.  Too quiet.

Everything appears so peaceful on the surface...

Did the Loch Ness Swampster ever really leave?

P.S.  Even the most cautious adventures (me included) have fallen into the swamp!  Don't fall prey to what lurks below...  If your search brings you uncomfortably close to the water's edge, think again and perhaps indulge yourself in the hint. ;)
