Cryptic is:

GITHUB: A code storage (def); western get → GIT (say it with a drawl); meeting place → HUB

Next part:

On OP's profile page is a reference to SilversApprentice. Thanks to @Display name in TSL for pointing me to the github page for it https://github.com/SilversApprentice because I didn't realize that was a clickable link. D'oh!

The latest updated repo therein is SilversApprentice.github.io which contains an HTML file crypto.html, which seems an obvious place to look.

The code therein references https://i.stack.imgur.com/BS4ED.png:

Steganography part:

The BS4ED.png image isn't just image. @Display Name also pointed out there's something interesting tucked away at the end of the file. As it turns out, there's a RAR file here, with a file "png.txt" of length 27, tacked on the end of the PNG.

Extracting png.txt and reading it, we find:
i.stack.imgur.com/hf8Cn.png

So we go to that image next:

And we've won!
(And, yes, lost.)
