But seriously, I don't want to stall out the game, just trying to make it interesting. I'll start pouring out clues soon. Hell, I'll post coordinates if I have to to get someone to grab it.

May be it isn't that hard to find my first attempt at a search found it immediately.

Wow, you guys are good. I bow to your superior googling skills.

Even after I knew what it is I had to work to find out where it is. If you found the article in the Dallas Observer then you have the general area, but the precise location is a little more obscure. Though not for long I fear.

Hey GSAragazzi - you need to grab this. If Rich gets it the tag will move back to FTW, and those guys don't let go of it easily. And where's California? He must be deep in the holidays. Retail and all.

I know right where it is. Was looking at it on the satellite view on Google last night. And you are correct it will move West if go get it.

So, the "166 years" was enough of a clue - I googled that and the cabin came right up. The Observer article was one of the first hits. But you still had to do some googling to find the location. Good job.

Ground should be nice and soggy for you today.

Except when it friggin snows!!!!!

Found it!

I found it online, but not sure I can get in and out on my Concours. Too bad, cuz I most definitely would be moving it back to the west.
