Note: no "armchair caching", please: we believe a player must visit a cache site in person in order for it to count as a find.
This two-stop virtual cache is for folks who like west Texas landscapes, ironwork art, and Bob Wills' music. The little town of Turkey is worth a visit, and if the hotels are all full up, you can camp at Caprock Canyons State Park. Hikers, bikers, and horseback riders will also enjoy Caprock Canyons' trails, and geocachers should plan to hunt the Caprock caches, A Mesa's View and Butterflies for Rachel, while they are in the area.
1) As you arrive in town, take note of the wonderful ironwork that welcomes you to the town. Every street has a decorative sign. Go to the coordinates listed above, and look for the iron cutout of a musician standing on top of a sign. He is wearing boots and spurs, and he is playing a double bass. Write down or remember what the musician is. True Bob Wills fans will want to visit when the museum is open.
2) Now go to N 34 deg. 23.557 min. W 100 deg. 54.043 min. One of the panels on the monument lists a number of American Classics. Write down or remember which one is your own personal favorite. You will also need to know the hometown of the artist that designed the monument.
To claim this cache, e-mail us the musician's identity from Part 1, and your favorite from the list of American Classics from Part 2. You do not have to wait for us to confirm your find (we check our e-mail at the library about once a week), so go ahead and log your visit. However, we will delete any log that does not match up with an e-mail containing the confirming information.
To open the Certificate of Accomplishment, you will need a password. The password is thirteen lowercase letters: the hometown of the monument's artist followed by the six letters that describe the musician from Part 1, no spaces, no uppercase letters.
To receive the certificate, when you email us your confirmation, leave the box checked saying "I want to send my email address with this message". We'll send you the certificate as a Word document attachment. When you click to open the attachment, a box will pop up asking for the password to open the certificate. Enter the password, the document will open, and you should be able to modify the certificate with your details.
If you are ever in Tulsa during daylight hours, be sure to hunt the virtual cache Bob Wills (and his Texas Playboys).
