The WBs: I was considering re-deployment or transferring ownership on the detectives, as circumstances are unfortunately preventing the maintenance I should be providing. Archiving is the best option, based on the tone of the DNF logs and dwindling interest in caches in the "unknown" category that are not challenge caches. Thanks for playing!

Geocache Description:

Posted coordinates point to one of the most overlooked overlooks (?) in the area -- very scenic, recommended especially if you’ve never come all the way up here. Nearby final cache location has a small hidden water bottle cache. Sat signals were a little bouncy on placement day; even though I averaged several grabs, my apologies if your mileage varies by more than 20 feet.

Joe Mannix, in his first TV season in 1967, worked for a large agency called “Intertect.” Its reliance on crime-solving computers is the reason the onscreen typeface for “Mannix” resembles the font used by IBM in its logo. In the subsequent 7 seasons Mannix went out on his own and hired Peggy Fair as his secretary. Mannix was created by Richard Levinson and William Link (this team also created Columbo and Murder, She Wrote) and the series was developed and produced by Bruce Geller (Mission: Impossible).  Joe was portrayed by Mike Connors, and Peggy by Gail Fisher.

A Korean War Army vet, Mannix belongs to the tough-guy, hard-boiled detective school. In the course of the series he was knocked unconscious at least 55 times. Connors himself dislocated his shoulder just filming the pilot episode. Connors also portrayed Mannix on the Here’s Lucy and Diagnosis:Murder programs.
