- Aug 1, 2008I got a huge grin on my face when I read your message. People ask me
how I ended up in Austin and I give them a very similar story! I came
here in 1972 to attend UT and just fell in love with the area.
I wish you the best in the next leg of your adventure.
I would be happy to adopt Cache Landing. I just solved the puzzle
this afternoon and will go sign the log tomorrow. I would be honored
to adopt this cache if you'll let me.
Only the very best to you and your family!
