2. Austin, Travis County

You would think I would have done this one first since I’m from Austin, but I didn’t.  As fate would have it, my very first cache is located two blocks away.

Named after a civil rights activist who filed a historic case here, it’s a funny courthouse in relation to my thoughts on courthouses yesterday.  This courthouse could never, ever be a center of political life because this badly photographed beast is about 4 blocks away:

When the State Capitol is around the corner, THAT is where the gravity lies.

Ended picking up a 3.0/1.5 here at a house that, many moons ago, used to be a tea house/shop.  Not overwhelmingly hard.  In fact, it just jumped out at me.  I don’t think the last finder really put it back well, but I’m sure it happens.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to grab another tonight (thanks for intruding, Real Life!).  I have managed to maintain more than 3 caches/day, but I am now at EXACTLY three.  I’d managed previously to get a few per day several times a week and then do a bunch on the weekend, but lately I haven’t had the time for evenings or weekends (thanks again, Real Life).  How often do you guys think about your average?  Or is it just me?  Hopefully, I’ll be able to raise some of those numbers this week.  I really hope to add a new county over the weekend, but we shall see…
