Hello Monte! So, are you still in Seattle? If so, say hello to Pinkie. He's one of my older brother's dogs and he hasn't been feeling too well lately.

I was fascinated to read the stats about the cities you were comparing - Seattle, Austin, Miami, etc. I was also saddened to read the % of single passenger/driver vehicles on the road in Austin. Austin does lack good public transportation. I served on the sprawl committee with the local Sierra Club a bit ago and Austin's continued growth has not been graceful!

I've lived in Austin for the last 19 yrs. Prior to that I lived in Bryan and/or College Station until I grad. from Texas A&M University

I love Austin. Prior to moving here I wanted to move AS FAR AWAY from TX as I could without leaving the state! Austin's the only place that fit the bill!

I'm NOT from TX but Lyle Lovett's song says, "TX will keep me anyway!"

TAke care kiddo,

Hi Monte,
Welcome to Austin. I am a transplant from Saint Louis, moved here 18 mos ago and love it. Lots to do and people are very friendly. When we say " we should blah blah blah sometime" we mean it! It is very easy to make friends here. I made my first friends here via email.
What part of town are you currently residing? I live in the Aboretum area and getting ready to buy a home in Circle C. Good luck with everything. If you find yourself bored and wanting to explore, my friends and I would live to show you some places.
take care,
Suzie S
