Geocache Description:

A quick two stage cache, bringing your travel bug to the old west.

*** Awarded 5-Bug Badge of Honor from Travel Bug Hotels of America
*** Recognized in the blog, Latitude 47 (4/3/13 article "Behind the Scenes ...")
*** Featured on (show number 409, 15 min., 20 seconds into the program)
*** Cacher's (deputies) escorted more than 250 trackables to and from the jail so far
*** And our greatest thanks to the 100+ premium users who have made this a favorite !

Travel bugs and other trackables are on the loose.  The sheriff is calling on deputies to join the posse and round up those desperados, locking them in the jail until released by another deputy.   Individuals without travel bugs are welcome to visit and record their visit in the log, but please do NOT leave any swag. 


Stage 1

Micro at coordinates above.  Be sure to make note of all the numbers you find.  Deputies, there’s a corral nearby for your horse, but we suggest that you mount up after gathering your evidence, it’s a further ride to the jail. 


Stage 2

Combine the first two lines of information found at stage one with N 33o 34. _ _ _ W 111o  57. _ _ _.   Take your prisoner (travel bug) there, but only during the daytime (no dusk or night visitors). 


A famed sheriff is there waiting for you and will dutifully watch over your prisoner.  Please make a log entry for each bug you jail, also annotate the original entry of any bug you release. While the jail looks old, rest assured that the bugs aren’t going anywhere, as long as you remember to lock it up right, lock it up tight.
