New Caver

Postby Mr. Underhill » Nov 8, 2008 11:22 pm

I am a new caver in the Austin Texas area. I became interested in caves and caving after visiting Carlsbad Caverns and doing research on my own. My current affiliation is with the UT Grotto and I am eager to go CAVING!

Welcome, Mr. Underhill. I got into caving after a visit to Mammoth Cave. Great way to have your interest spurred! But now Carlsbad is one of my favorite caves in the whole world. You're lucky that there's an active group of cavers right there in Austin!

Austin huh, my sympathies. :-)

Nah, seriously, I hear the city is great, it's just some of the cavers from that area. :roll:

Mr. Underhill eh? Couriosity has gotten the best of me and I must ask; is that is your real name or might it be taken from the alias given a certain Mr Baggins prior to departing Bag End for the village of Bree?

To answer your question, My alias is somewhat taken From Mr. Baggins, The reason I chose this alias is that I Am stout like the hobit named Mr. Baggins and ironically enough Mr. Underhill is sort of reminiscent of a cave. So basically you are correct
only Mr. underhill is not my actual name.
