Geocache Description:

The cache is NOT at the published coordinates.

Just like the title of the Statler Brothers' hit of the 1970s, this cache calls to a simpler time when you could tell the good guys from the bad guys by the color of their hat. The puzzle involves answering several questions concerning TV westerns of the 50s and 60s. Many will know some or all of the answers, others will find them easily on the internet. Letters should be converted to numbers using the standard geocache A=1, B=2, C=3, etc.

Use the below Geochecker to check your answer. The final is a well camoed micro in an area that has high muggle traffic. Please hunt with stealth, at your own risk and replace cache as found. Permission for placement of the final granted by the authority for this location. The area is closed 10 PM to 6 AM. Please observe all rules and hours to ensure we retain the privilege of placing caches.
