Geocache Description:


Larry Hagman was an actor best known for playing ruthless oil baron J. R. Ewing in the 1980s primetime television soap opera Dallas, and befuddled astronaut Major Anthony "Tony" Nelson in the 1960s sitcom I Dream of Jeannie.

Hagman died on November 23, 2012, at Medical City Dallas Hospital in Dallas following complications from throat cancer.

Who shot J. R.? was an advertising catchphrase that CBS created in 1980 to promote the television series Dallas. It referred to the mystery surrounding the season ending murder attempt was not resolved until the November 21, 1980 "Who Done It?" episode.

There are a couple of memorable storylines that every Dallas fan will remember:

April complains to J.R. that he didn't tell her about Cally. Cliff tries to turn his dates with Tammy into a relationship. Cally vows to stay at Southfork and make her marriage to J.R. work. McKay tells Bobby he's good for Tracey. Cally asks J.R. whether he slept with April. Christopher makes friends with Cally. Sue Ellen gives Cally a little "advice" on how to handle J.R. McKay wants Tracey to work for Weststar. J.R. hires a cop to find out about McKay. Cally tells J.R. he'll have to marry her again at Southfork. Tammy breaks up with Cliff. Tension rises between Cally and John Ross. Bobby tells Christopher that Pam will never come back. J.R. learns that Nicholas Pearce's father is looking into his son's death


J.R.'s conniving affects the lives of Bobby, Pam, Cliff, Donna, and Ray, but Sue Ellen is ignored as he refuses to acknowledge the fact that she is being followed. J.R.'s influence seems to have no bounds as he works to make sure that Cliff does not get chosen to run for public office. When his plans backfire and draw in Bobby and Pam, he is even more pleased at what fortune has brought him, which even includes an implied promise from Leslie Stewart. Sue Ellen can't get anyone to believe that she is being followed and J.R. could not care less, so she takes matters into her own hands, which results in a shocking revelation.
