biography

Hello from Alex, Troy, Zach, and Wyatt. Our researches in Luckenbach are for our gifted and talented group's geocaching project. That's right there's a new geocache in town. If you'd like to attempt to find it, just remember, it's literally right under your nose, or feet that is. If you find the cache please feel free to leave your name on the notepad and where you came from, unless it's Mars. Please leave the cache just like you found it and be respectful. We worked hard on it.
